It was a time when Indian society was reeling under the combined stranglehold of the caste system and oppressive Muslim rule. At such a time Guru Nanak Founded the Sikh religion which preached equality to all.
This Amar Chitra Katha collection tells the story of his life and also of Guru Arjan, the first Sikh martyr, who compiled the Guru Granth Sahib.
Guru Har Gobind, who created the first Sikh army to protect the rights of his followers, Guru Tegh Bahadur, who laid down his life to uphold the belief that each individual had the right to follow a faith of his own choice, and Guru Gobind Singh, who gave Sikhism its five sacred symbols.
“Amar Chitra Katha are a glorious tribute to India’s rich cultural heritage. These books have been an integral part of my children’s early years, as they have been for many other families across India. Comics are a great way of reaching out to children, inculcating reading habits and driving their quest to learn more about out roots”.
