The SEC are honoured to celebrate the 150th birthday of the grandfather of Sikh literature, Sardar Kahan Singh Nabha, in September 2011. Amongst other events, we will be re-publishing and focusing on all of the respected author’s works that were written in English.
Sardar Kahn Singh of Nabha (1861-1938) is regarded as one of the greatest Sikh scholars of the late 19th and early 20th century. His writings span over a period of 50 years and he had made a large contribution to the fields of Punjabi literature, lexicography, linguistics and poetry.
A number of books were published by Sardar Kahn Singh, including the well-known and immense work ‘Gurshabad Ratnakar Mahankosh’ – the Encyclopaedia of Sikh Literature. Sardar sahib was also instrumental in providing the inspiration and guidance to Max Arthur Macauliffe in producing ‘The Sikh Religion’ in the early 20th century.
