When Guru Nanak was born in 1469 the world was a tumultuous place. But really, how different are the issues faced by people then and now? What kind of progress has our society made? How would Guru Nanak be treated in 2013 by his disciples and the wider world? What would the Guru challenge today and how would he go about it?
Three graduates of Sidak 2013 come together to offer a global perspective on these questions.
