It takes placed during the 16th century, between the well known first guru, and the last. A muslim boy, finds Guru, mysterious and wise, amongst Hindu and Muslim rule, and it is an epic tale. But I was wondering historically, between 1550-1600 were there any significant issues in Sikh history, that I would want to talk about?
I have been thinking instead of writing a boring romance novel set during the Second Anglo-Sikh War, I should write a science-fiction dystopian novel set in the future. The plot of the novel will take place well into the late 22st century in India at a time when the entire world is going through serious environmental degradation, economic chaos and political turmoil. All the countries in the world has merged into several huge countries and is run by tyrannical dictators and a powerful ruling class while the overwelming majority have to endure crushing poverty. The Sikhs despite the world population sitting at 12 billion in 2198 has seen their numbers decline from 25 million in 2013 to 1.2 million in 2198 due to government sponsored genocide, wars, and ethnic displacement. The Sikhs in this dystopian novel are scattered in all 10 countries of the world after the entire Sikh population was expelled from the Punjab in the late 21st century following a major unsuccessful rebellion against the corrupt ruthless dictatorship of the Merged Asian nation of the South Asian Republic in 2114. The main protagonist in this novel is a young Amritdhari Sikh in his early 20’s named Paramjit Singh who belongs to the Akhand Kirtani Jatha. He is captured by government forces in Mumbai after leading an uprising against food shortages. As punishment he is experimented on by a government scientist who specializes in genetic engineering transforming Paramjit Singh into a half-human half-lion hybrid who will undergo brain implants so he can be part of an army of half-human half-animal hybrid soldiers who will exhibit total loyalty to the dictatorship while deploying brutal unorthodox methods to keep the poverty stricken peasants under control. He manages to escape after his transformation but before he has computer implants surgically inserted into his brain to erase his free will. He goes on to unite the Sikh people and lead a worldwide rebellion against the 10 dictatorships of the world. Below is a picture of what I would think Paramjit Singh would look like but he would be in Khalsa uniform like the man beside Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale in the next picture.
