Coventry Cross Roads Gurdwara Camp! (Part 2)


On Sunday there was a MYSTERY TRIP!!! The trip was to the "Think Tank" in Birmingham. It might sound boring when you hear the name of the place, considering children don't want to "think" too much and like to relax and have fun (just like the adults!). However, I was pleasantly surprised. The trip turned out really good and everyone had fun!

Some photos from the trip (taken from

Waheguru. This boy was in our group. If you met him, you would never forget him! For some reason he decided to dress like a Sunflower. Rab Raakhaa :)

Sat Naam, Waheguru. The most enjoyable part of the museum was this water area for children to play games. Some decided to splash others with the water and get them wet! Waheguroooooo.

2 young Singhs playing with the water. Bechaare, didn't even splash one another or anything. They were youngest children but acted most sensible with the water. Waheguru.

Looks hi-tech!

The 12+ years group. I was with this group. After this photo, I decided to get on to the metal frame. But as I got on, the museum staff person came over and told me off for being on there. Slightly embarrassing!

Bhai Preetam Singh jee's group.

Lunch time. As usual, in full Coventry style, the Langar was Chardi Kalaa. Buns, spring roles, samosay, even ahloo wale parothay! On top of all that there were (egg free) muffins - fruit ones, chocolate ones... you name it, it was there :)

Bhaji Harjinder Singh jee (looking slightly shocked!) and Bhai Amarjeet Singh jee (aka "Baba jee").

This was the Alien zone area.

This was the "Bubbles and Bang" show. There were plenty of bubbles but not many bangs!

Coach trip going back to the Gurdwara.

It was a really good camp! Everyone enjoyed it. If you didn't come this year, I would definitely recommend coming next year! Every Friday Cross Road's Gurdwara has a Khalsa Club from 6pm till 7pm for children up to 14 years old, and afterwards from 7.30pm till 9pm (every fortnight) there is a class for elder youngsters with Bhai Sahib Joginder Singh jee. So if you're local, try and take benefit of these classes. For more details go on May Waheguru keep the organisers in Chardi Kalaa and bestow them with the gift of doing more seva.

Dhan Hai Guru, Dhan Hai Teri Sikhi!

Saturday 5th January 2008 marks 342 years of the Parkaash Diwas of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib jee Maharaaj. Saariaa nu lakh lakh vadhaayee hove!
