Subsequently, the college group shabad team spell bounded the audience enchanting pious notes from Gurbani.

Following this, Dr. Gurmit Singh from Punjabi University, Patiala talked at length on Sri Guru Granth Sahib, maintaining the Granth was not only a compilation of meditative verses but the semblance of philosophies and erudition through ages. He highlighted Guru Granth Sahib as propounding secular message within its ambience thoughts of various saints and philosophers along with the Gurus. Elaborating on the purport of the Guru, he vociferously emphasized its significance in dispelling darkness from one’s heart.
