About The Book

Bhai Vir Singh (1872-1957), Father of Modern Panjabi Literature, in his trilogy. of fiction comprising Sundri, Bijay Singh and Satwant Kaur, has mainly depicted the ethos of the Sikh community of the Panjab, struggling for its survival and the retention of identity, during the later Mughal period of Indian history.

In fact, it is Turk/Mughal the Ruler who is depicted as a villain in these writings of Bhai Vir Singh and not the Muslim as contended by historians and literary critics of Panjabi literature.
