Col. Guleria, as he was known to me, was deep and insightful person.  When he wrote this book, he was the Vice President of the Bhai Vir Singh Sahitya Sadan in New Delhi, and had unfettered access to those archives.  Was resulted was a rare profile of Bhai Vir Singh, showing a complex and multi-dimensional personality through his writings.


This book is a collection of articles written by Col. Guleria when he served as Editor in Chief of the publication KHERA, the quarterly publication of of Bhai Vir Singh Sahitya Sadan.  Together, these essays form an enlightened biography of Bhai Vir Singh ji.  


As written by Col. Guleria, Bhai Vir Singh "had contemporaries, but no equal in Punjabi literature."  Wha!  So true.
