Re: General Zoravaar Singh - the Forgotten Sikh General of Khalsa Raaj 1820-1840
This is based on a book written by Brigadier Gurbachan Singh Bal EX Indian Army who personally visited all those places Zorawar Singh fought in. Book is published by Panjabi Univeristy patiala.
Its a sad fact that unlike the olden day sikh academicians like Khan singh nabha, Gyani Ditt singh, Karma Singh Historian etc who did research and found facts and manuscripts at great financial risks personal risks etc..modern day sikh academicians sit idly by in their air conditioned offices regurgitating known facts from libraries and do little personal original research...Otherwise how do we explain the APPALLING LACK of knowledge/history books etc about such Great SIKH Generals like this. General Zorawar Singh is comparable to Hari Singh nalwa..although Nalwa was amore seasoned mature individual thoroughly steeped in GURMATT...Zorawar Singh is a bit careless, and self centred with a little bit too much self confidence that led to his defeat and martyrdom on the battlefield in Tibet.
