In a tribute to the Guru ahead of his 550th birth anniversary, a unique project — Guru Nanak Sacred Forests — has been set rolling in India (mainly Punjab) and Pakistan, where volunteers are converting empty patches of land into forests.
Many Sikh bodies have been opposing the release of Nanak Shah Fakir, the first movie on the life of the first Guru of Sikhs, Guru Nanak Dev. SGPC, the apex religious body of Sikhs, gave approval to the movie when Avtar Makkar was its president.
The movie is scheduled for April 13 release. Harinder Sikka, the producer, had first planned to release movie in 2015, but had to withdraw prints from theatres at last moment after huge opposition from the Sikh bodies.
