Needy students of a local Tamil school were very much on the minds of Kuala Pilah Sikhs as they celebrated the 550th birthday of Guru Nanak.

Last week, they donated uniforms and bags to 10 students from Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (Tamil) Kuala Pilah.

Gurdwara Sahib Kuala Pilah (GSKP) has been actively engaging students from the school over the years.

For Vasakhi 2017, for example, they feted 150 students and 20 teachers from the school, ending the day with a sumptuous feast of Guru Ka Langgar, the vegetarian meal prepared by volunteers.

The gurdwara has organised an akhand path from Nov 15-17.

The gurdwara is home to 15 Sikh families from Kuala Pilah and Bahau. They also get the support of neighbouring Sikhs from Seremban, Tampin and Mantin.

Kuala Pilah is located about 100km from Kuala Lumpur.

Among those present at the latest event at the school were GSKP management committee president Surjit Singh Sidhu and committee members Gurcharan Kaur, Avtar Singh, Jagjit Singh, Surjeet Singh and Narenjan Kaur.
