    For the first time in Gujarat, all gurudwaras across the state are coming under a single umbrella with an aim to spread values of Sikhism in the state.

    Gujarat Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (GGPC), a recently formed body encompassing 34 gurudwaras of the state, will organise a 2-day devotional Atmaras Kirtan Samagam, on June 18-19 from 7-11pm at Manekbaug hall, near Nehrunagar cross roads, Ambawadi.

    "Atmaras Kirtan Samagam is first-of-its-kind programme, as it will be organised outside the gurudwara," said Vishal Singh, coordinator of the committee. It is also the first programme after the formation of GGPC, Singh said, adding that GGPC will work according to the guidelines set by Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee at Shri Amritsar Sahib.

    Apart from Kirtan Samagam at Manekbaug, Gurudwara Shri Guru Singh Sabha, located at Shri Teg Bahadur Marg, Dudheshwar will organise devotional programmes on June 19, from 9am to 1:30pm. GGPC has invited classical music maestro Padmashri Bhai Nirmal Singhji Khalsa of Darbar Sahib of Shri Amritsar to perform at these functions.

    "Bhai Lakhbir Singhji, Gyani Jaswant Singhji and Bhai Surjit Singhji Rasila of Delhi based Bangla Sahib Gurudwara will also remain present on this occasion," informed Mohanjit Singh Bagga, president of GGPC.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
