In celebration of 300 years of our Guru Granth Sahib, I wanted to create a documentary portraying the importance of our Gurmukhi script as well as the language of the Guru Granth Sahib, Gurbani.

My intention of making this documentary was to motivate my brothers and sisters to make a conscious effort to understand Gurbani and the first step to doing that is by reading Gurmukhi.

– Raj Singh

“The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster. “

– Milan Hubl, quoted by Milan Kundera in ‘The Book of Laughter and Forgetting’
