The Magic Degh retells those Sikh stories and legends which highlight the core values propounded by Guru Nanak. They flow from his fundamental belief that all human beings – men and women – are created equal. These values have resonated through the centuries. The episodes illustrate Guru Nanak’s Golden Rules: live and work honestly; share your earnings with the needy and always remember the Creator. They also highlight the Sikh traditions of sewa and sacrifice, which remain vibrant even in the 21st Century, as the book recounts.

Guru Gobind Singh created the Khalsa Commonwealth to defend people of all faiths against tyranny and State terror as reflected in the Sikh salutation, ‘Degh; Tegh; Fateh!’ This has added relevance in today’s turbulent times.

The stories aim at kindling children’s interest in the traditions and universal values of the Sikhs.
