About The Chairman and The AuthorDr. Sarup Singh Alag, chairman and the author does not need any formal introduction because of his excellent publications being distributed in the world absolutely free for the last many years. It is such a noble and gigantic task which only Dr. Alag could do and rejoicingly the Sangat has fully backed his project initiated under the name of Alag Shabad Yug International Charitable Trust, functional from its headquarters at Ludhiana and of course having effective supporters everywhere. Many dedicated and selfless Gur-Sikhs have taken the task of the Trust in their own hands and are running this prestigious project voluntarily in an exemplary way.
As far as Dr. Alag is concerned he is a well known scholar and has earned good name by representing India in several International
level culture, civilization and language related seminars and conferences. For the last 40 years, the readers have been joyfully reading
his very interesting, illuminating, thought provoking and valuable writings related to Panjabi language, Sikh religion and other burning
issues demanding immediate attention of humanity lovers, such as drug addiction, foeticide and bride burning for want of dowry. His vast
academic qualification backed by world wide knowledge, very rich and varied experience, tendency of deep research have acted as decent
inputs for his much-liked and highly appreciable writings.
It is well known that after retiring from the high post from Pb. Govt. 15 years ago, he has dedicated his life
to serving humanity selflessly and has taken the responsibilities for the all round development of mankind through
the use of his powerful pen and oration with the sense of reverence, humility and dedication.
Although he has written more than eight dozen books but his 87 publications in English, Hindi, Punjabi, Gujrati and
Bengali are highly acclaimed the world over and are on the panel of Alag Shabad Yug Trust Ludhiana-141010 for their
free distribution. These are printed with the financial support of Sangat, donors and esteemed readers residing any
where on the mother earth. In a short span of year or so, Sardar Alag could publish 51 deluxe editions of his most
liked book 'Harmandar Darshan' in Panjabi, Hindi and English by the end of year 2001 which was the 4th centenary
occasion of the creation of Harmandar Sahib. A very majestic and spirited GurSikh S. Gurcharan Singh Chatwal as usual,
whole-heartedly backed this project along with his like minded associates. All these sewadars of humanity with their
untiring efforts, made that specific project a great success. Lately S. Jaswinder Singh Toor again of London joined
the Yug as its advisor and very strong supporter. He injected new spirit, new strength to the Trust by providing his
solid financial backing and positive valuable suggestions. Trust is lucky that S. Jagjiwanpal Singh Bains of Northampton,
S.Mota Singh Sarai of Walsall, West Midlands along with his friends and associates has also joined the Trust in a big way.
The selfless and dedicated efforts of all these stalwarts would enable the Shabad Yug to bring out the suitable literature
in sufficient strength especially in the next five years. Surely such soul lifting and spirit raising literature would raise
the image of Sikhism and that too of the country in the eyes of the world habitants. Dr. Alag's efforts in this behalf are praiseworthy.
