Sikhs all the world over recently celebrated the gurpurab of Guru Nanak recently. Sikhs in Jakarta, Indonesia, were equally connected in celebrating the birth of the first Sikh Guru.
Jakarta Gurmat school at Gurdwara Selatan (Jakarta south), celebrated the gurpurb on Nov 9.
The school, which was built on donations from the Sikh sanggat from the region, came into existence last year.
At present, there are 80 Sikh children, some from Indonesian mothers, pursuing Gurmat studies in collaboration with Khalsa Diwan Malaysia and the Kuala Lumpur-based Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Academy. – Report by Balwant Singh
