Last week it was Bhaji Charan-Kamal Singh's 20th birthday (Bhaji recieved the gift of Amrit in October 2005 along with Mandave Singh and Pardip Singh). It was celebrated Midlands style! Started off with Rehraas Sahib and Simran, followed cake ceremony, then, well I will let you have a look at the photos! (Just to clarify for the record, I weren't at the birthday bash! I have been kindly sent the photos by my friend.)
Bhai Sahib Charan-Kamal Singh (aka Birthday Singh)
Nice birthday cake (eggless of course!) :)
Bhaji reading his birthday card.
Balraj Singh (in white pagh), Charankamal Singh (b'day singh), Pardip Singh aka Dhadi Master Sahib (in creme pagh), Mandave Singh (in black) and Bish Singh at end.
Making birthday wish (probably wishing that he doesn't end up like Pardip Singh and Mandave Singh on their birthdays!)
Bhai Sahib doing Bhog of the cake (in simple English - cutting the cake!)
Ermm... a blurry photo of the back of Charan-Kamal Singh's head.
"Once upon a time a Singh was born in Midlands. Twenty years on, three wise Singhs came bearing gifts and presents for the Singh....
The first wise Singh brought the gift of a black and kesri (orange) dastaars (turbans)...
The second wise Singh presented arm-pads for practicing Gatka....
The third wise Singh presented the gift of a Kenchi Sahib (a stand) for keeping Gutka Sahib and a Sandlewood Mala.
Waheguru! It looks like Charan-Kamal Singh bhaji is either alergic to cake or scared of having cake forced in his face.
Birthday Sagun (I don't know whether he is being made to eat the cake or wiping his face with it. Rab bhalla kare!)
Shifty looking characters
Getting stuck in! Bhaji Kamal Singh (at end) looks like he's got a headache, Saty Bhaji looks eager to munch the cake, erm... bhaji Sukhi Singh looking like he's been brainwashed into eating cake. Sat Naam, Waheguru.
