Reunion bash for Perak’s Ashby Road gurdwara


An Ipoh-based gurdwara sahib is calling upon all its satsangees from the 1960s to 1990s for a reunion later this month.

Gurdwara Sahib Ashby Road, one of the active gurdwaras in Ipoh, the state capital of the Malaysian state of Perak, is rounding up its active satsangees in those three decades for a reunion on Dec 28 (Sunday).

A kirtan darbar followed by a hi-tea and a photo session is planned from 3pm onwards on the Sunday.

“Let’s get together with family and friends and cherish our memories of those golden years. Many have left Ipoh but the sweet memories of Ipoh are never forgotten,” according to an invite, shared by Jusbir Singh with Asia Samachar, sent out to the former and present satsangees.

The gurdwara was formerly known as Gurdwara Sahib Greentown.

Some of the former satsangees living abroad who have confirmed attending the function include Giani Harjinder Singh (Texas, US), Ranjit Singh (Perth), Gurdave Singh (Sydney), Jusbir Singh AshbyRd-Reunion(Melbourne), Jaspal Singh @Pip (Melbourne), Kiran Virik (Melbourne), Harkiran Singh (Singapore), Hardeep Singh Gill (Singapore), Sharanjit Singh Bruce (New Zealand) and Gurvinder Singh @ Zuco (Singapore).

Hi-tea include the ‘old time favourite’ chaa-chaney, meehoon, chole bhature, pakore and kuih nyonya, adds the same invite. Good enough reason to land at the gurdwara sahib located on a small hill slope.

“This is going back to memory lane where our roots were planted. Today we are all scattered around the globe, successful in our own way,” writes Jaspal Singh, a former captain at Singapore Airlines, on his Facebook posting.
