Today I was invited to take part in a discussion on BBC Asian Network on the Nihal show (10am till 11am) at the BBC London studio in White City. The topic was "what comes first religious law or civic law." I was meant to arrive at the studio at 9.45am, however I got late for various reasons. Firstly, two out three of the ticket machines at the train station were out of order. Secondly, because of the ticket machines not working, the queue to buy the train tickets was huge and so I missed the train. Thirdly, the next train that was meant to leave at 8.08am was 30 minutes late! Chalo, I eventually got to the studio (15 minutes into the show) after rushing in the underground!
As soon as I got to the BBC, someone took me straight to the studio. Because I had rushed to get to the studio I was out of breath. As soon as I sat down, the presenter asked me a question (I thought at least let me catch my breath!). I was struggling to breathe and talk at the same time! Waheguru. It was a good show and some "interesting" callers.
>>Tuesday 6th May - Nihal Show's Divine Debate
(the 'Divine debate' starts at 1hr into the programme)
Standing with Nihal (the presenter). He is a really down to earth and nice guy.
On the way back home I decided to take the train to Southall. I visited Park Avenue Gurdwara Sahib. As I entered the Gurdwara Sahib I thought there was an audio CD of keertan being played. When I entered the diwaan hall I was pleasantly surprised to see a keertani jatha doing keertan. The keertan was so beautiful and sweetly sung. Waheguru. Bhai Santokh Singh from Damdami Taksaal were doing keertan. The jatha were young in age. It's the first time I have seen or heard them! May Waheguru continue to do kirpaa on them.
