Sikhism, the youngest of the world religions, is barely five hundred years old. Its founder, Guru Nanak was born in 1469. Guru Nanak spread a simple message of Ek Ong Kar: we are all one, created by the one creator of all creation. This was at a time when India was being torn apart by castes, sectarianism, religious factions and fanaticism. He aligned with no religion, and respected all religions. He expressed the reality that there is one God and many paths, and the Name of God is Truth, Sat Nam.
This book provides details of many important Sikh personalities, Sikhs who have protected the Khalsa from the onslaught of other beliefs and Sikhs who were and are essential to the existence of Khalsa. Starting from the Guru Nanak dev ji, other Sikh gurus, the present Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh and Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission of the India Montek Singh Ahluwalia and many other Sikhs who have kept the Khalsa up in high spirits have been discussed in the book. This amount of research and in-depth study combined with explanations in simple language make this book stand out.
