In the present monograph an attempt has been made to study Panjab historiography from the view point of cosmography, the concept I have derived from the cosmological paradigm which Professor Harjeet Singh Gill, an eminent semiotician has developed in his oeuvre. I take pride in having written the monograph in his honour.

Since its introduction in the colonial Panjab, the discipline of historiography subdued the indigenous craft of history writing such as katha, qissa, janamsakhi, and jangnama wherein what Professor Gill has conceptualized as “the dialectic of representation and transcendence” remained ever active.

Ishwar Dayal Gaur is Professor of History at Panjab University, Chandigarh.
