Walking with Nanak by Haroon Khalid
Guru Nanak Dev ji, spent most of his life and times in today’s Pakistan (then United Punjab, Hindustan). He was not only born there, but he also breathed his last there in Dera Baba Nanak. In fact, there are several places in Pakistan which are associated with Baba Nanak. And that’s why the author of this book went to explore that part of Pakistan. And the result is this book.
