    Giani Gurbachan Singh Performs Ardas' For Rains In Andhra Pradesh

    July 6th, 2009 by S Bhag Singh

    http://www.{url not allowed}/files/news/2009/July/ardaas-1.jpgHyderabad, July 5 : The Sikh community of Andhra Pradesh today performed a special ``Ardas'' (a Sikh prayer that is performed for a significant task) for rains across the country more particularly for the state.

    The Ardas was performed by Giani Gurbachan Singhji, Jathedar of Akal Takht Saheb, the Supreme temporal authority for Sikhs across the world during the 414th birthday celebrations of sixth Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Hargobind Sahebji held at Maharana Pratap Function Hall, Amberpet here today.

    It is almost one-month to the onset of south-west monsoon over Andhra Pradesh but there is no sign of rains. As the state recorded a huge deficit in the rainfall in the month of June, serious crisis is looming large on the horizon and specter of drought is staring at the state.
    http://www.{url not allowed}/files/news/2009/July/ardass-2.jpgIn connection with the birthday celebrations of Sri Guru Hargobind Sahebji, the Prabhandak Committee,Gurudwara Saheb, Hargobindpuri, Amberpet organised a ``Vishaal Deewan'' (Mass Congregation) at the function hall, Amberpet in which reputed Ragi Jathas (community preachers) played Gurbani Keertan.

    They include Bhai Gurmeet Singh of Darbar Saheb, Harmandir Saheb (Golden Temple), Amritsar, Bhai Gurmail Singh of Toombiwale and other Ragi Jathas. After the culmination of the congregation Guru-ka-Lanagr was served to the devotees.

    What was missing was the Hula skirt to enhance the rain dance.

    Shame ! Shame ! Shame!

    Ardaas is for us to become better people, not for goodies from nature in the form of rain or goodies from Ik Ong Kaar in the form of material things.
