Sach Da Suraj

Description This is a poetic tribute to Guru Nanak on the Quincentenaries' of the Guru's birth. It is written in a racy flowing verse which is more suitable for recitation from a stage before a large congregation of devout Sikhs. Its merit is to be judged more on the basis of its rhythmical couplets than on its literary qualities. Although the author claims it to be a "Mahan Kav" (A Poetic epic) yet it lacks the grandeur and linguistic qualities of a literary epic. The account of Guru Nanak's life is chronological and each incident in Guru's life is couched in verbal description but misses on its intrinsic message and import. Similarly, the imagery and symbolism used is highly embellished and lacks in the aesthetic beauty of a literary work of art.[edit]
