This work on the Sikh Misals mainly relates to the Eighteenth century which is, undoubtedly, the most eventful period in the Sikh history. In has been done at the instance of Dr. Ganda Singh, one of Indiaâ€™s top-ranking historians of his time and the most distinguished specialist of the eighteenth century Punjab history.
For decades, there had been nothing nearer his heart than the desire of writing a detailed account of the Sikh Misals.
Due to his preoccupation with many controversial issues of the Sikh history he kept on postponing this work to a near future. But a day came when the weight of years and failing health refused to permit him to undertake this work.
He asked me to do it and magnanimously placed at my disposal his unrivalled life-long collection of Persian manuscripts and other rare books relating to the period. Thus, with the most invaluable source material at my working desk my job become easier.
