You may want to mark your calendar for an event packed 5-day programme at Sentul gurdwara as part of the on-going celebration of Guru Nanak’s 550th birthday.

The event, running from Nov 27 to Dec 1 (Wed to Sun), includes a daily kirtan/katha semagam featuring Bhai Anantvir Singh (US), Bhai Manpreet Singh (Tuhi Tuhi), Bhai Sarabjit Singh Rangila, Bhai Jasbir Singh (Paonta Sahib) and Bhai Tavneet Singh (Chandigarh).

Some of the highlights are Garden of Lights of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Sultanpur Lodhi Punjabi Bazaar, documentary on the travels of Guru Nanak, art and paintings of Guru Nanak and children activities.

Sultanpur Lodhi features prominently in the life and times of Guru Nanak. He spent some years in this Punjab town at the invitation of his elder sister Nanaki and her husband Jai Ram, who was in charge of the grain storage depot (Modikhana) of Daulat Khan Lodhi, the then shiqqdar (commissioner) of Sultanpur Lodhi. Daulat Khan later rose to become the governor of Lahore.

The event is jointly organised by Sikh Naujawan Sabha Malaysia (SNSM) and Gurdwara Sahib Sentul.
