13-year-old boy pens book on Sikh religion and tenets

A 13-year old Sikh boy from Surrey in Canada has penned down a book on Sikh tenets and Sikh religion, perhaps becoming the first writer of his age to write on the topic.
Introduction to Sikhism, the book in English by Bikramjit Singh Bains was released on Thursday by Akal Takht chief Giani Gurbachan Singh in Amritsar. The Akal Takht chief was all praise for the big initiative at a small age by the young writer. Bikramjit is the grandson of noted Encyclopaedist Dr Raghbir Singh Bains, who has to his credit writing the Encyclopaedia of Sikhism.
Bikramjit started work on his book when he was 10 on the occasion of Baisakhi in April, 2009. He got so inspired with the Sikh tenets as he researched for the contents that he got baptised (became an Amritdhari Sikh) in Surrey last year, amid carrying out the task of completing the book.
