Rome: Thousands of Sikhs attended yesterday the inauguration ceremony of a major new temple in Italy’s farming heartland in the Po River Valley, where many members of the community work as livestock farmers.

A helicopter dropped flower petals at the event in Pessina Cremonese, which was attended by Sikhs from across northern Italy as well as mayor Dalido Malaggi who thanked the Sikh community for reviving the region’s declining farming sector.

“The Sikhs have saved the local economy,” Malaggi said. “They work in the farming businesses where our young people don’t go any more.” AFP

This is the area in Italy where we are reading. North Central, in alignment with Venice to the east, on the Adriatic coast. This is very rich farmland. The area settled from the Etruscan times.

]This is a shabad mentioned by respected member Gyani ji a few times so I was keen to explore further. I have given the shabad and literal word meanings. Please have a go at putting these together...
