Introduction To Book 'Philosophy Facts and Fundamentals of Sikh Religion' By S S Kapoor

The present book is both a work of primary research and a collection of essential statistics and information about Sikh religion. In Sikh literature there is a dearth of books which deal with pertinent questions on Sikhism. This book is an attempt to fulfil that vacuum.
 
In modern times readers are looking forward to literature which is readable and easily understandable. They want ready answers and  quick solutions to their queries; this work is an attempt to unwind such situations.
 
Part I of the book deals with the difficult question of the Philosophy of Sikh Religion. I have discussed this aspect in 29 modules with suitable parables and sakhis. Part II of the book tackles the questions of facts and fundamentals of Sikh Religion. This problem has been answered in eight subsections viz. Firsts of Sikh Religion, Who's Who of Sikh history. Who's Who of Guru Granth Sahib Where in Guru Granth Sahib, Where in Dasam Granth, Who's Who of places, 200 short questions with answers and 100 long questions with answeres. Some of these questions have been selected from the British Exami-nation Boards.
 
The book is aimed at both general readers and for students studying for 'A' level and GCSE examinations of British Examination Boards.
 
I am most grateful to my secretary Mrs. Poonam Kapoor for helping me in preparing, planning and proofreading this book. I will be anxiously awaiting my readers' comments.
