Do you know that way back in 2004 the then President Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam composed a poem en route to Amritsar on the occasion of the 400th Anniversary Celebrations of the installation of the Shri Guru Granth Sahib

He was en route to the city to participate in the celebrations to mark the 400th Anniversary of The Guru Granth Sahib when he wrote this poem which he recited as well at the function.
The poem titled “Guru Prakasham” is as follows:
Many many years ago our Gurus lit the lamp
And the Prakasham was born carrying power of the soul
This light of truth on the lands of five rivers
It orbited and orbited around the sun
Along with the earth that carried it as sindhur
This earthly Prakasham is so powerful
Of human’s universal message of one God
Four hundred orbits gone in no time
The great Prakasham has even out-glowed the Sun
As it orbits all around the sun, even sun bows in enhanced reverence
And salutes the earth, for all that it carries
The Greatest Prakasham of Guru Granth Sahib
