On 26 December 1705, Fateh Singh and his elder brother, Zorawar Singh were martyred at Sirhind. Fateh Singh is probably the youngest recorded martyr in history who knowingly laid down his life at the very tender age of 6 years. The young Sahibzada and his older brother, Sahibzada Zorawar Singh are among the most hallowed martyrs in Sikhism.
The first Sunday of November saw a Shabad Kirtan session aimed for the Sunday school children sat in rows close to the stage. Kirat the youngest member of the Manohar Singh Bharj Jatha explained the Shabad meaning and its implication. The crowning glory of this unique and a wonderful spectacle was our young Janvi singing a Shabad so skillfully. The practice of concluding each session with a Shabad by a pupil will hopefully continue.
A notice to parents announcing a repeat of Shabad Kirtan sessions for the Sunday School Children every first Sunday of the month has been sent. Introducing Shabad Kirtan to the children early in their lives is envisaged to foster Gurbani discipline right from their earlier years.
New Year Eve – Our Gurdwara is known to have Saadh Sangat attendance to its capacity on every New Year eve. No doubt every Gursikh yearns to see the New Year in presence of their family at the Gurdwara.This year too the event will provide an evening packed with excellent Shabad Kirtan. After Rehras Saheb the Punjabi school children will open the Shabad Kirtan session. This will be followed by half an hour of Guru Wichar by our Giani Ajmer Singh ji.
