Book Tag

I have been tagged by a blogging-buddy and am supposed to write a bit about the books that I have read. I am not much of a reader, though, and have not read a book for quite some time now.

Anyway, here goes:

A book that changed your life

Sri Guru Granth Saahib, the holy book of the Sikhs, however, I have not read all of it as yet.

One book you have read more than once

Several...I used to read my comic books many times over, when I was younger, besides the 'Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection' and some of 'The Hardy Boys' series...

One book you would want on a desert island

Er...why just one...I would prefer a library, actually, complete with a chaise longue and a rocking chair, as well, besides a warm rug in front of the fire place, if you please...

Coming to think of it, a beach-chair and umbrella should also prove useful, for reading out of doors...

One book that made you laugh

Several...comic books mostly...

One book that made you cry

Don't recall any...

One book you wish had never been written

I am all for the freedom of expression!

One book you are currently reading


One book you have been meaning to read

None...Even as, at one point of time, I used to read any book I could lay my hands upon...

I cannot help but point out that as long as Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib jee Maharaaj is referred to as “Holy Book” (that too by SIKHS), it will fail us those many times. We have to believe in Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib jee Maharaaj as Jugo Jug Atal, Hazaraa Hazoor, Jahara Jahoor, Chavar Takhat Ke Maalik, Dassan Gurooan de Joyt Sawroop. We have to believe in Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib jee Maharaaj as we believe in a living Guru because, the Joyt present in Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib jee Maharaaj is the same as was in Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Sahib jee Maharaaj to Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib jee Maharaaj.

Thanks for sharing your opinion, Sifar!

However, I believe that unless the knowledge that has been imparted to us through the Guru Granth Saahib is imbibed by us and practised by us in our lives, we shall remain almost the same as idol-worshippers…who worship a book instead of an idol…and the very purpose of raising the Sikh Panth and the sacrifices that have been a part of the process, shall come to naught.

The Guru Granth Saahib is worthy of respect as a Guru, as far as I understand, mainly on account of the knowledge that its verses contain and the one that tries to live life in accordance with the philosophy of the Guru Granth Saahib is a true Sikh.

Thanks once again and here’s hoping that you shall continue to share your valuable opinion.
