Hamburg Smaagam Photos

With Satguru's kirpaa last week a three-day Smaagam was held at Singh Sabha Gurdwara Hamburg, Germany, to celebrate Guru Gobind Singh jee Maharaaj's Gurpurb Diwas. The Smaagam was organised by Veer Ramendeep Singh whose birthday it was during the Smaagam! Sangat from Germany, UK, Denmark, Sweden, France and Holland attended the Smaagam and Rainsbai Keertan.

I took a Ryanair flight from Stanstead to Hamburg. I realised that it is better to go on a normal airline because by the time you pay all the hidden charges, luggage cost, payment charge etc, and add up the cost and hassle of getting to Stanstead (which is in the middle of nowhere!) you realise you can pay a little extra and save hassle. Chalo. Arrived there safe and well. The flight back was aweful! A 4 hour delay! Waiting around in a half empty airport which looked like a giant tent! Left Hamburg at 7am and got back home for just over 6pm!

Despite the long journey back home the Smaagam was really nice. It was oranganised by the youth and the majority of the Keertan was done by youth from across Europe. It was inspiring to see all the European Sangat and youth get together and support such programmes. May Guru jee continue to bless the Sikh Sangat with pyaar, eiktaa, and Gursikhi.

Some photos below from Smaagam:
