'A beautiful production - a precious collector's item which I will treasure' - Khushwant Singh, author of History of the Sikhs. 'Fascinating!' - William Dalrymple, author of The Last Mughal. 'Immensely readable... the first ever study that has been written of the shrine of Guru Gobind Singh in present day Maharashtra.' - Susan Stronge, Senior Curator, Victoria & Albert Museum, UK. 'Comprehensive research' - The Tribune, Punjab. 'A fabulous achievement... Hazoor Sahib takes us into a lost world of Sikh history. We are in the presence not only of the Master - but of world class scholarship and research.' - Christy Campbell, author of The Maharajah's Box. 'What a treasure-chest of a book! Nidar Singh Nihang and Parmjit Singh's timely new book In the Master's Presence: the Sikhs of Hazoor Sahib combines fascinating and deeply informed text with an abundance of superbly reproduced images - many of them previously unpublished. (These include the earliest known painted portrait of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.) This aesthetically and historically rich volume celebrates an important and under-acknowledged strand of Sikh tradition at a time when it is at risk as never before.' - Professor Eleanor Nesbitt, University of Warwick, UK. '[The authors] do remarkable work in cataloguing the history of the Deccani Sikhs...' - World Sikh News.
