Hello Nick, I have been visiting your website for a while now and I must admit I have not seen such beautiful photographs of our beloved Nihangs ever! I felt so close to our Dearest and most Loving Beloved Guru Ji when I saw his lovely, brave and almost god like sons the wonderful Nihang Singhs. Please keep supplying us with more and more of these photographs becaus it is only through great people like yourself that people like me can enjoy and learn what our Nihang Singhs look like and the kind of life they lead. They look awesome and ever so spiritual especially where you have depicted them offering the Ardas at Shri Anandpur Sahib Ji. Thank you Nick and keep up the spiritual work to educate us and enlighten us.

May Guru Ji shower you and all that come in contact with you limitless blessings and spiritual wisdom.

Hi Nick, Wondering if you could name some history books that give exclusive coverage to Nihangs since Mogul era.

Your thoughts?
