That was the point, be humble, show affection, we are nothing in comparison to Guru Nanak ji. After this, referring to the travels of Guru Nanak Dev, he said that I had read somewhere that Guru Nanak ji had gone to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. He went to Thailand, he went to Sri Lanka. These big men were doing India Jodo long before we were born. Let us try to find out that how many countries did Guru Nanak Dev travel to during his lifetime and did he ever go to Thailand?
The Bharat Jodo Yatra carried the spirit of affection, respect and humility.
