Description

In the midst of a society dominated by the caste system and foreign invasions, new leaders arose to introduce a philosophy and lifestyle which captivated the simple-hearted, brought human dignity to the downtrodden masses, and continues to impact the Indian Subcontinent.

“Captivating is a timely work that interrogates the structure of caste and its impact on marginalized peoples of South Asia. The work weaves a rich brocade of history, ideology, and praxis that has been put to use by the elite at the apex of the caste pyramid to subjugate hundreds of millions of people in one of the most oppressive nations on earth.”

Dr. Harpreet Singh

Professor of South Asian Traditions and Languages, Harvard University

“The authors compellingly argue for the suffering millions to derive inspiration from the Sikh Revolution, which envisioned India as a modern, casteless, classless society with equitable mobility and which galvanized the masses through a long period.”

Dr. Manisha Bangar

National Vice-President, All India Backward (SC, ST, OBC) And Minority Communities Employees Federation

“This little book has a potential of forging solidarity among the victims of horrendous Hindutva majoritarianism for a future egalitarian society as it is solidly based on the rich heritage of emancipatory movements, Sikhism in particular.”

Dr. Rajkumar Hans

Former Professor of History, M.S. University of Baroda

 

“Captivating probes what it means to be Sikh and brings important questions of Sikh resistance into the forefront with a wide spectrum of historical accounts that rupture hegemonic discourses.”

Indira-Natasha Prasht

Sociologist, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Langara College, Vancouver
