A Walk with Guru Nanak


A walk with Guru Nanak Game is premised on Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s 24 years long four spiritual journeys (UDASIS) to deliver the message of peace, love, equality, virtue, and compassion to humanity with his companion, Bhai Mardana. The aim of his sacred mission was to educate the masses residing in all four directions of the Indian Subcontinent and restore humanity in the midst of expanding ignorance and worldly attachments. This spiritual gameplay manifests into a moral exercise leading the players accountable for their actions. This simple, smooth moving game enables a player to view life through a viewfinder/ lens of fair and just thinking and also depends on luck and chance.


Thukral and Tagra and Kalgidhar Society collaboratively installed a life size game installation at renowned Gurudwaras to be played at special occasions to educate the masses about Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s 24 year long four spiritual journeys (Udasis).

The Kalgidhar Society – Baru Sahib is a non-profit charitable organization focussed on providing quality education to fight against the alarming rise in drugs and alcohol abuse. With equal stress on Healthcare, Women Empowerment, and Social Welfare, the organization has been instrumental in the socio-economic uplift of the poor in the far-flung rural areas of North India.

DONATE: We would highly appreciate if you can donate a token amount to The Kalgidhar Society that works for the welfare of the underprivileged through education, health, and value-based education in North India.
