About the author

Jagtar Singh

Coming from a family of  agriculturalists of  Ambala,  Jagtar Singh,  when he joined The Indian Express, Chandigarh in 1978, was amongst the very few English language journalists of  Punjab with a wide knowledge and background of  rural Punjab and Haryana. Possessing a great capacity for diligent field work, he was aided by his  understanding of  the religio-political ethos of  the region and in his writings, was soon imparting meaning to the fast paced developments, then sweeeping Punjab. His foray into this, till then, urban bastian was preceeded by an indepth study of  political economy,  interspersed with personal experiences of  mass struggle and repression by the state machinery in the late 1960's and early 1970's in Punjab. 

In his journalistic career he utilised the opportunities afforded by the old school of  journalism to bring home to the readers the major current and cross-currents which enveloped Punjab in the 1980's and 1990's. Arguably Jagtar Singh is one of  the foremost authorities on Punjab, its politics and society, and particularly the politics of  the Shiromani Akali Dal and Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC), which seem to be beyond the comprehension of the whistle-stop journalists of  the new era. Jagtar Singh has always been known for a meticulous record keeping, combined with a dispassionate, balanced and unsparing approach to events and players and these qualities are amply on display in this work as well.
