Sinopse

Harjinder Singh makes an analytical effort to objectively portray the events the 1984 atrocities, and decades of oppression endured by Sikhs in Punjab, and other parts of India, in his Reflections on 1984.

The simplicity of style employed appeals to any reader, from the sophisticated scholar intent on factual study, to the casual browser looking for an easy read. The author's condensed presentation of short information packed paragraphs is as easy to digest for the intellect, as the comfortably sized font is to consume with the eyes. Pros *Presented in the English language. *Informative while keeping the attention. *Simple and straight forward makes it easy to read. *An excellent reference which documents events leading up to Operation Blue Star. *Well referenced with eye witness accounts of the Golden Temple invasion by Indian Army troupes. Cons *Slight Punjabi flavor to text may be occasionally noticeable to English readers. Guide Review - Reflections on 1984; If like me you are someone who has little spare time for reading, you will be delighted to learn that I was able to read Harjinder Singh's Reflections on 1984 in about 4 hours. I had worried that I might find it dry, or overly sensational, but that was not the case at all. From the time I picked it up and read the first sentence, I became quickly absorbed, and I was able to read straight through the entire book of 209 pages, including Preface, Prologue, Main Chapters, Acknowledgements, Appendixes, and Bibliography, all in a single afternoon. --http://sikhism.about.com/od/sikhismbooks/fr/Reflections-Of-1984-By-Harjinder-Singh-Review.htm This year marks the 30th anniversary of the events of 1984, when the Indian armed forces invaded the Darbar Sahib at Amritsar in Punjab under the direct orders of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi s Government, followed by a genocide of Sikhs less than 6 months later after she was assassinated in retaliation. Akaal Publishers release the second book from UK-based author Harjinder Singh in commemoration of that event and to critically review the issues including recent related happenings. This work follows on from the author s first book Playing the Game of Love which has developed a cult following in Sikh circles will it be as popular? Reflections on 1984 is a book aimed at debunking myths and academically addressing the continuing issues of the Punjab which came to international prominence thirty years ago. The author makes it clear from the start that he will be presenting information objectively before drawing his own conclusions. That desire to look at a topic so close to one s heart from an independent viewpoint is vital to creating respectable work, but bias is a disparaging accusation levelled at authors far too easily I find in the South Asian community. Previous work on 1984 by eminent writers such as Gurtej Singh or Kulbir Singh Kaura for instance is held up almost as tainted because of the authors Sikh background, whilst the Jurgensmeyer s and Tully s of this World are deemed to be objective purely because they are white (ignoring their obvious political backgrounds). This type of idiocy will continue to be prevalent until a wider culture of critical reading develops in the Diaspora, but for his part Harjinder Singh should be commended for producing a well referenced book with excellent appendices. I was overjoyed to find the Anandpur Sahib Resolution in full, as well as pertinent edicts from the Akal Takht Sahib, which will mean this book remains within reaching distance of my writing desk for many years to come.
