Sikhi in Punjab - Who is responsible?

Veer Satpal Singh, a young Gursikh from Punjab, took it upon himself to show the wide world Sangat a glimpse of what is happening in Punjab in regards to Sikhi with the help of some other Gurmukh Pyaare. Last Vaisakhi, Veer jee goes to Sri Anandpur Sahib and other nearby Gurdwara Sahibs and asks the Sangat basic questions about the Sikh faith like why are we celebrating Vaisakhi today, what are the 4 Sahibzaadey's names, what are the Panj Pyaare's names and what are the 10 Gurus' names. Veer jee had 100 gifts for people who could answer all the questions correctly. Sadly on the day of Vaisakhi, only 2 people were awarded gifts. The below documentary is titled "Kaun Jimmevaar" (Who is responsible?):

The video makes us realise that we should not take Sikhi for granted. Sikhi is not our birth right but a blessing we have to be grateful for. It is everyone's duty to ensure that we educate ourselves firstly about who we are and what a great treasure we have for a religion and way of life. Secondly, we have to help inspire and educate others through Parchaar through our positive actions, words and lifestyle. May Guru jee bless us all.

Dhan Hai Guru, Dhan Hai Teree Sikhee!
