Guru Nanak is the founder of Sikhism who helped to heal differences between Hindus and Muslims. One of many stories in this comic is about a miracle that occurred at his death. When it became clear that his death was near, a dispute arose among his followers. His Hindu followers wanted to cremate the remains while his Muslim followers wanted to bury the body following Islamic tradition. After much arguing a compromise was reached and both the Hindus and the Muslims placed a garland of flowers beside his body, each expecting the other's flowers to wilt. However, the next morning, when they raised the cloth under which Guru Nanak's body lay, only the flowers were found. The Hindus then cremated their flowers and the Muslims buried theirs.
These comics are endearing to the young and old. Reading them is an inspiring and fun way to learn about India's saints and sages - and it's a lot easier than studying the Vedas! Comics are also a great way for children to learn, which is why they are an integral part of most Indian households.
We carry Amar Chitra Katha comics as they have the most consistent quality. We import all of our comics direct from India. The quality is generally good, but please make allowance for the fact that they are printed economically in India.
