Hello ! My dear readers, viewers, friends & students all over the world ! You all obviously know about Guru Nanak, the founder of a big religion named ‘Sikhism’. The followers of Guru Nanak are called Sikh, who are very well recognised by ‘Pagri’ on their head, which is a turban. . Guru Nanak’s birthplace was in Indian area (Lahore, now in Pakistan). Though Sikhs are seen all over the world, the Punjab state of India is the main concentration of Sikhs. Read the valuable thoughts or quotes of Guru Nanak, apply those in your life as far as possible, always remember God, and feel the positive energy always in life.
