Last week it was Leamington Spa's Dhadi prodigy, my friend - Bhai Sahib Pardip Singh's 21st birthday! He is studying at University of Birmingham, and living out in halls of residence. Here are some photos from his birthday party bash, which he celebrated with his friends in Birmingham.
Pardip Singh's Birthday Card.
This reminds me of Sundays at the Gurdwara, when the Granthi Sahib gives a Siropa or Gutka to whoever's Akhand Paath it was on the weekend. By the way its of Pardeep Singh and Mandev Singh, who had just finished doing Rehraas Sahib da Paath.
"Smile for the camera!!" Bhaji Charan-Kamal Singh (aka 'Chan') and Bhaji Pardip Singh (looking bit serious I must say).
Main guest (Indy Bhaji) arrives for the Birthday Bash. I wonder what's in the bag?
Aaah!! How cute! lol. It reminds me of when someone gets married and all the uncle jis and aunty jis shove loads of laddoos and barfi in the boy's mouth!
Bhai Sahib takes opportunity to show off his Dhadi lecturing skills.
Sat Naam, Waaheguroo! Bhai Sahib Bhai Pardeep Singh doing Ardaas before the Pavitar Cake (eggless of course!) ready to do Bhog.
Cake cutting ceremony. Waheguru. Reminds me of weddings.
Pardip Singh checking his presents.
Rupinder Kaur giving out Langar. Going with the wedding theme - first of all I thought it looked like Rupinder was drawing a pattern on the floor, like aunty jis and the boy's sister do on the night before the wedding.
Someone's feeling hungry!
Singhs eating Langar Paani.
