Book Launch: 2018

What makes a little boy feel grown-up? Dressing up like his Daddy, of course. Daddy’s Dastar captures a moment between a father who cherishes his little boy and a son who can’t wait to grow up. Tegh pleads with his father to let him wear one of his colorful dastars. Although his father insists that Tegh is far too young to wear one yet, Tegh convinces him otherwise. For after all, Tegh won’t be a little boy forever.

Daddy’s Dastar is also an introduction to Sikh culture and a celebration of its most cherished ceremonies.

Inni Kaur is the author of Journey with the Gurus; Sakhi-Time with Nani ji and Thank You, Vahiguru.
