The account is moving and raw with the descriptions of the many humiliations faced by Bhai Randhir Singn Ji emotional to read. His interactions with various jailers demonstrate with clarity the conduct demanded of Sikhs even when faced with depressing and hopeless situations. In this passage Bhai Randhir Singh Ji argument about Sikhi being above the petty trivialities of personal ego and fame really spoke to me.
A highly recommend read for Sikhs and non-Sikhs alike on how to live an honourable life with the upmost integrity. Oct 16, Jajhar Singh rated it it was amazing.

Me interesa mucho conocer y aprender sobre distintas culturas y diferentes momentos de la historia. Muy profundo, muy interesante. An interesting book revealing the hardships a staunch Sikh had to bear for freedom. In my humble view Randhir Singh's autobiography acts as a catalyst for all those who believe in Al-Mighty. Randhir Singh is an example for all those who keep faith in Allah God and continue to do good deeds.
Any selfless human being will never suffer. This account proves that the suffering is merely a test of character and faith. One who passes this test enjoys the reward in both worlds. I'd strongly recommend t An interesting book revealing the hardships a staunch Sikh had to bear for freedom.
I'd strongly recommend this book to all with special emphasis for young sikhs. Oct 26, Lara rated it really liked it Shelves: biography-and-memoir , sikhism. This is the first account of mystical experiences I have personally read from a Sikh perspective. Those are my favorite parts of the book. Much of the book describes Singh's years as a political prisoner. The stories are fascinating, but I wish there were more of a sense of Singh's inner feelings.
The telling feels a little "stiff" in some places. Overall, though, a fascinating read.
