New painting of Sant Jee installed at Smethwick Gurdwara...


Yesterday on the way to work I visited Guru Nanak Gurdwara Smethwick and was pleasantly surprised to see a lovely painting of Baba Jarnail Singh jee Bhindranwale in the foyer near the Langar hall. Giani jee told me that the painting was especially commissioned by the Gurdwara Sahib management to mark the 30 years anniversary of the June 1984 holocaust. A gora painted the picture, and has done a great job. It would be great to see more Gurdwaras to get artwork showing Shaheeds and Sikh history made by artists. Hopefully people passing by the Langar, young and old, will be reminded of the great sacrifices our Shaheeds have made for us and how their Shaheedi woke the Panth and inspired a new generation of Sikhs to live in the footsteps of the Great Gurus.


Dhan Hai Guru, Dhan Hai Teree Sikhee!

Every time I see a picture of Sant Jarnail Singh Jee and think about his Jeevan and his Seva of prachaar and kurbani for the Panth
Im just left Speechless
