      Sahib or Saheb (/ ˈ s ɑː h ɪ b /, traditionally / ˈ s ɑː (iː) b /; Perso-Arab: صاحب, Devanagari: साहिब, Gurmukhi: ਸਾਹਿਬ, Bengali: সাহেব) is a word of Arabic origin meaning "companion". As a loanword, it has passed into several languages, including Persian, Kurdish, Turkish, Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi, Pashto, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi and Somali.   While the focus of many books and articles today is on China’s successful economic reforms, dramatic new figures for the number of people who died as a result of Mao Tse-tung’s policies are surfacing, along with horrifying proof of cannibalism during the Cultural Revolution.
