It is the ideal Sikh character that makes them better individuals. The people love the Sikhs and their faith as the saviours of the women, down trodden and the protectors of human rights. A study of the Sikh ideal of life as prescribed by the Gurus and practiced both in letter and spirit by their followers since 1449 A.D. is the main theme of the book. The study further aims at providing knowledge of the glorious deeds of the Sikhs till date.
