    Mr Singh International

    Damandeep Singh from New Delhi, holds his trophy after winning the grand finale of the Mr Singh International 2009 title in Amritsar on Saturday night. Contestants were chosen from different parts of India as well as from other nations. The selections were based strictly on Sikh principles and tenets. The rules demanded that the contestants be ‘Saabat Soorat Sikhs’ (those who do not trim their hair), he should maintain unshorn hair and beard and should not have consumed any kind of narcotic or drugs. Damandeep Singh was declared as Mr Singh International 2009 whereas Mandeep Singh from the United Kingdom and Talwinder Singh from Italy were declared the first and second runners-up respectively


    Delhi’s Damandeep Singh bagged the title of Mr Singh International at the grand finale of the contest held at the Khalsa College ground late Saturday night. Mandeep Singh from UK was declared the first runner-up, while Talwinder Singh was the second runner-up. The contest, organised by a voluntary organisation Akal Purakh ki Fauj (APKF), was exclusively for the sabat surat Sikhs (Sikhs with unshorn hair).


    Senior Akali leader Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa and SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar were present at the final show, along with actor Neil Nitin Mukesh. The theme of the show was environmental protection as enshrined in Sikh philosophy, and how the youth should join hands to safeguard the earth.



    Singer Rabbi Shergill performed at the finale, attended by a huge crowd.


    Both Dhindsa and Makkar appreciated the APKF for organising the event which could help dissuade the Sikh youth from giving up the turban and trimming their hair.

    I could be wrong, but should it not be 2010. There is already a 2009 winner. Maybe someone can figure it out. When you do, I will edit the thread title. :whisling::D:cool:

    Title corrected. Thanks for the information, Damandeep! And thanks Aman ji for adding more information to the OP as it came in through the news networks!
