The Valiant Ones: A Journey Into The Mesmerizing World Of The Sikhs (English) By: Gurbir Singh and Gagandeep Kaur

 

The journey begins, unraveling the mystique of the enigmatic Sikhs – their principles, traditions, and lifestyle. Initiated by the sword, guided by the Guru’s Word, these saint soldiers march to a different drummer.

Authored by Gurbir Singh and Gagandeep Kaur, this 156-page coffee table book offers an attractive visual and print journey to capture the lives of a people who are fast fading away, their way of life, culture, language, and valor being gobbled by a single word called ‘modernism’.

The term 'Nihang', according to the authors, could be from Persian, meaning alligator or sword. However, it could also be a derivative of the Sanskrit word Nihsanka meaning fearless or carefree.

The book also gives accounts about the origin of the dress-code of the Nihangs, one of them being attributed to the son of the Tenth Master - Baba Fateh Singh. The authors claim that Baba Fateh Singh had once appeared in front of his father dressed in a blue Chola, a line girdle fastened around his waist and a large blue turban with a farla which had enticed Guru Gobind Singh to comment, "It is a dress fit for Akalis, the Soldiers of God!"

The book also provides a perfect recipe of shardai, should someone want to use it for spicing up Holi.

The book attempts to show the many facets of the Nihangs and Gurbir’s pictures bring the reader into this exciting and fascinating world.
