This book is an assorted collection of research articles covering themes of Sikh history and Punjab heritage. The key focus is on understanding how being kesadhari shaped and influenced the course of Sikh history, during and after the life time of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Three distinctive aspects of the life of Guru Gobind Singh Ji are discussed using a combination of Gurmukhi and Persian sources and a fresh interpretation of events and ideas is attempted. Baba Banda Singh Bahadar carried Guru’s legacy further and paved the way for Sikh sovereignty. Acting as true follower of Guru, he was the harbinger of social change in Punjab, empowering the weakest of its people. Two research articles make an attempt to highlight the contribution of Baba Banda Singh and his place in the history.
