About the Author
Brig Jagdev Singh is a graduate in civil engineering from Mciagan College of the Punjab University, Lahore, Punjab, now in Pakistan. He is graduated in 1947. That was a very rough time when the Partition of the Indian subcontinent had been announced, and there were large scale communal riots. Life was insecure and the people of either community literally thirsted for each other's blood. There was a lot of blood shed, all under the governing eyes of the British Govt. who were ruling the country; they spared no efforts to see to it that the two communities decimated each other. Whereas Muslim leaders like Mr. Jinnah did everything to stroke the fires of hatred amongst the people of the two communities, Gandhi and Nehru were strongly in favour of peace and amity. After a lot of blood bath the subcontinent was partitioned into East and West Pakistan; the latter soon declared Bangla independent State of Bangladesh.

Hindu religion claims to be one without beginning, i.e. it came into being with the beginning of time. Its roots are in timelessness, it came into being with the beginning of Creation and would dissolve into eternity once it has run its course. Then it is ready for another round of creation and go through another the cycle, and so the cycles would repeat ad infinitum. Hinduism claims to be Sanatan, ageless, with its routes embedded in eternity, and it takes birth with time, when Shrishti, creation, manifests itself. A lot of what exists as part of creation is the' Sanatanistic Hindu thought and content. It lasts as such till the next cycle is ready and gives the creation a new colour, and substance.
