This is a collection of my Editorials and Reflexions published during August 1994. August 1996 in the Sikh League, a fortnightly, of which I was the Chief Editor.
I have published books on Buddhism and Sikhism, my favourite subjects. And, I have a feeling that one cannot reach one's readers, frequently, through books and one also needs to relax, intellectually. Journalism I think serves both the purposes and I have made full use of it.

I had at one time launched the Sikh League, a fortnightly, which could not survive for more than two years. I have been writing regularly its Editorials and Reflexions (the latter under non-de plume Sobtovasky, name given to me by my Comrade friends). This is a collection of my Editorials and Reflexions published during August 1994 to August 1996 in the said paper of which I was the Chief Editor.
During the period I was writing for the Sikh League, I found that there was general decline in values required to raise a soical structure conducive to pursue a higher order of life. Hence, the title is Miccha Secnario. My main focus has been of course on the Sikh world. The contemporary Sikh world by and large, is suffering from minority complex not finding way out of it. The members of minority community of any category, at any point of time in history, in order to earn respectability and credibility, ought to be morally and intellectually taller than the members of majority community. The Sikhs are miserably failing on this front. The politics of power is certainly not the way out. The politics of ideology may prove helpful, in case it is rooted in the Sikh heritage built up by the Sikh Gurus.
