Anand Kaaraj & Hola Mahalla Smaagam


On Saturday 22nd March, we went to Erith to attend the Anand Kaaraj of Bhaji Gupreet Singh and Bibi Navrup Kaur. Bhai Tasem Singh jee, Bhai Tarunjeet Singh jee and Bhaji Preetam Singh jee from Coventry also came and they did Keertan. It is always nice to attend the Anand Kaaraj of Gursikhs.

Laavaa'n.

In the evening we went back to Khalsa Primary School for Rainsbai and then the next day there was a special programme in the morning with Bhai Amolak Singh jee given an eye witness account of 1978 Vaisakhi massacre and martial arts demonstrations. It is the first time I have attended a Smaagam for more than one day. It was really enjoyable and inspiring to have darshan of Gursikhs and get Anand from Amrit Rass Keertan.

Bhai Amolak Singh jee's moving eye witness account of the 1978 Vaisakhi massacre in which he was hit with bullets and survived death. Waheguru. Dhan Guru, Dhan Guru Ke Pyaare.

Random question...but what is bhenji Navrup Kaur wearing? (And yes I know it's clothes.)

Don't know much about women's clothes :)

To my limited knowledge Bhenji was wearing embroided Pyjamee Suit.
