It is specially designed for adults and children in 14 different languages to make the process of learning easy, interesting and creative.
On the launch of the comic, Diamond Toons director Manish Verma said, “India showcases incredible glimpses of intriguing and colourful shades of its rich cultural heritage. It boasts the title of ‘land of festivals’ along with innumerable saints and sages who have walked their journey of life here. Sikhism is the youngest religion, but has a lot of faiths and beliefs which we are unaware of. Diamond Toons attempts to pass this rich legacy and teachings of the religion to our younger generation. We will be coming out with more such illustrative books through series called Celebrating India that will chronicle the lives/memoirs and teachings of the enlightened spiritual gurus of India.
