This is a new book about Sikh women that will capture the imagination of all ages. Very little has been written about Sikh women and the contribution that Sikh women have made to the community of Sikhs. Guru Fatha Singh Khalsa has stepped into that void and written a wonderful book that gives a life-sketch of a wide panorama of Sikh women.
The book starts out with biographical sketches of 10 treasured Sikh women from history – nicely done in a storytelling voice. These start with Bibi Nanaki, the sister of Guru Nanak Dev ji, and goes through Princess Sophia, the granddaughter of Maharaja Ranjeet Singh.
To my surprise and delight, we then see 20 more profiles of contemporary Sikh women, some young and some old, told with loving anecdotes of their lives. This is a wonderful book – inspiring, real, and long overdue!
