Guru Nanak Devji and Sikh History in Murals

 
Sohan Singh Khalsaji (Author)
Synopsis Guru Nanak Devji : Biography in murals that depicts the entire life of Guru Nanak Devji, from childhood to the times, he left for Sachkhand. It is an unique book, first of its kind that depicts Guru's life in pictures. These murals, pictures drawn on the walls, are a rare and precious history of the Sikhs, and are very vividly painted in beautiful, life-like colours, on the walls of the historic building of Baba Atal, Sri Amritsar Sahib. Though some pictures are lost due to the negligence and unworthy caretaking by the people concerned, it is a treasure that may not be regained once lost to us. The other half of the book gives a brief and concise history of the Gurus, the Sikhs and Sikhism, the Khalsa and the Panth, and of the embodiment of Shabad (The original word) and the Bani (original scripture) presented by the "Chosen People of God" through innumerable sacrifices and hardships. The book itself is a Window through which the true life of Guru Nanak Devji is seen and visualised. It is a treasure worth reading, preserving and, indeed, worth owning.

About the author

Sohan Singh Khalsaji

S.S. Khalsaji: Son of Rawal Singh Jhutti and mother Charan Kaur Jhutti of Raipur, Jallandhar, Panjab. Descended from the long lineage of inheritence dating back to Mata Sulakhniji who was blessed with seven sons, a boon from the Sixth Satguru Hargobind Sahibji, at Pind Chaabba in the district of Sri Amritsar. From there the family moved to Sri Anandpur Sahib and were better known as the “Guru ke Sikh” because of Guru’s blessings. Then the families settled at Chabbewal, in the district of Hoshiarpur during the life of Guru Govind Singhji, and played a prominent part in the “Struggle for Freedom”. The first martyr was Baba Rattan Singhji Shaheed whose “Samadh” is at Chabbewal. He fought and was martyred when the struggle-for-survival of the Sikhs against the tyranny of Jabbar Khan, the brother-in-law of Aurangzeb, the Moghul Emperor. Jabbar Khan was eventually captured by the Head of the Taruna Dal, Baba Ajit Singhji, Sahibzada of Guru Gobind Singhji, and produced in front of the Tenth Master who punished him for his wrongdoings. His death was avenged by the Hilly Hindu Rajas and the Delhi dynasty that led to the siege of Anandpur Sahib and, eventually, the exile of Khalsa from the City of Joy. Mata Sulakhniji was married to a Sandhu Jat of Chabba Pind while her parents were Sidhu Jats. Jhutti became prevalent when, after giving the boon for 7 sons, Guruji asked for ONE son to be always devoted to the Panth (which to date is) saying “when the BHEER (Sacrificial times) on the Panth comes, one of yours sons will come forward to take the lead in the ‘enduring struggle: Panth di Jhutti Gujaran ge!” Hence, Jhutti became the family name of the “Guru Ke Sikhs”, tye descendants of Mata Sulakhniji. Then the family moved to present Raipur where the 5th dynasty is at present living. Khalsaji was born on 5th November, 1939. An eldest son, after two daughters, of Rawal Singh Jhutti and mother Charan Kaur Jhutti. As far as the education is concerned, it is a fact that Khalsaji is almost ignorant and illiterate, though he writes in English, Hindi and Gurmukhji; and is well versed in English, Hindi and Panjabi and to some extent in other languages too, both a spoken and as written. Apart from this he has a vast knowledge of varied subjects in general and is highly qualified (without qualifications, of course) in subjects ranging from science to Spiritualism, Politics to Photography, Religions to Sociology, History and Geography, as well in Maths, Ancientology and as a tradesman in various fields. He has published 2 books in English, 5 in Gurmukhi and 2 in Hindi and is currently in the completion of another half-a-dozen titles.
