FORMATION OF ALAG SHABAD YUGThe Yug actively came into being on 01.01.1994 but the Trust was constituted on 13/09/2001 with the following:
AIMS AND FUNCTIONS OF THE TRUSTThe aims and objectives for which this Trust is created and for which funds may be utilized are as follows :
Besides the functions mentioned above, the Trust will take up numerous other socio-cultural activities to enrich our heritage according to our traditions. It is to strive hard to create awareness in Panjabi and Sikh masses to save 'Oora' i.e. Panjabi language and culture and 'Joora' i.e. the hair knot or Sikh identity so as to save our language, culture, heritage and religious identity.
The very brief mention of the activities of the Trust are as under :
The Trust publishes the high quality character building and soul uplifting literature written by Dr. Sarup Singh Alag for publication and free distribtion. It is sort of 'langar' of pious words basing on the spirit of Gurbani and the lives of Sikh Gurus. As food is free in Sikh Gurdwaras and it satiates the hunger of body, this literary 'shabad langar' is also free which provides food to soul. By now the Trust has published 87 valuable publications on different aspects. The books are lauded so much that some of them have been published more than eighty times in a very short spell. The book 'Harmandar Darshan' which was purposely written to highlight the quat centenary of the creation of the Harmandar Sahib(2001) has seen more than sixty deluxe editions in Panjabi, Hindi and English in a span of about two years and has changed the outlook of the readers about Harmandar Sahib altogether. To cope up with the ever rising demand of this wonderful book, its abridged volumes both in English and Panjabi are being published and distributed in huge quantity. Even then the demand graph for the book is rising up phenominally. To satiate the hunger of the readers we produced the relevant material in booklet forms in Pbi and English which are also highly acclaimed by the readers throughout the world.
Besides the activities of the Trust mentioned above, the Trust fulfils its other obligations by helping the needies; and also honouring those personalities which have contributed with their might and calibre dedicatedly to make the world more lovely and lively place to live in. With the availability of more funds these activities would be made more broad based. Much in this respect is required to be done.
