Reuters Images of the Year

Reuters News Pictures Service (RNPS) recently announced its images of the year for 2008. One of them is the following picture taken of “Gurmeet Singh, 72, a Sikh, work[ing] on a hand written version of the ‘Guru Granth Sahib’ (the holy book of Sikhs) in the northern Indian city of Amritsar.”

I also enjoyed — and wanted to share — these Reuters images of gold medallist Abhinav Bindra and of the Golden Temple.

    There was recently a feature on the Punjabi news about Gurmeet Singh. He started this work in 2004 and was hoping to finish this hand-written version of the Guru Granth Sahib by the 300th anniversary. What an incredible and rewarding feat. Love the image.
