Now, copies of Bhai Gurdas ‘Vaars’ available in Braille.
Amritsar, October 17
He could have been like any other ‘raagi’ after his retirement in 1998
from the Golden Temple, where he worked for 30 years. But, Bhai Gurmej
Singh had a wish. Being visually impaired, he wanted many like him to
read the holy Sikh scriptures.
He transliterated Guru Granth Sahib into Braille in 2012. Four year
later, he transliterated ‘Vaars’, a kind of Punjabi poetry, of Bhai
Gurdas into Braille.
Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) chief Avtar Singh
Makkar released the copy of ‘Vaars’ of Bhai Gurdas in Braille today.
Copies of the holy book prepared by him are already being read by
visually impaired children studying at Central Khalsa Orphanage, where
he spent his childhood.
One copy each of the holy book of Sikhs in Braille was presented to an
old-age home for the visually impaired near Phagwara, in Anandpur
Sahib and the Golden Temple.
