Yes it’s an invitation to all members of this beautiful family let’s have a walk with Great Guru Nanak … being born in Sikh family I grew up listening hymns of Gurubani….I used to read book named as GURU NANAK CHAMATKAR as I have already mentioned in my previous post …it’s really wonderful experience to read it ….it has beautiful description of places where Gurunanak visited along with his companion Bhai Mardana … of course wherever he went he left his footprints along with an amazing story over there .So would u like to walk along footprints of Great Guru Nanak ….?
