This book depicts the story of a great Sufi saint, Thakur Ram Singh, who served the police department and earned his livelihood by the sweat of his brow. Because of his honesty, integrity and dedication to his duty, Thakur Ram Singh had become a living legend and people had started calling him ‘Sant Thanedar’. Leave aside accepting bribe he did not even drink water from a well without paying for it. This is a true story, no exaggeration and based on facts. Some of the persons related to this story are still alive and stand testimony to it. The story also gives a glimpse of the administrative system prevailing in the then Princely State of Jaipur and of the lives of some of its renowned citizens.
Thakur Ram Singh was an accomplished Sufi saint and an ocean of esoteric knowledge but he kept himself hidden from the public. He was a man of few words, who did not believe in preaching but his mere presence had such an impact on the visitors that they used to immediately start feeling quietude and inner peace, which used to change their lives. Thakur Ram Singh remembered a lot of couplets, short stories and anecdotes, which he narrated fluently in Hindi, Marwari, Urdu or Persian, explaining even the most complex spiritual matters through them and kept the atmosphere light and jovial.
