India is a country which follows diverse religions. Although no particular religious practices are promoted in SHAFA, yet all religious days are celebrated with honour and respect. With the same spirit residents at SHAFA celebrated ‘Gurpurab’ with gaiety and fervour.
The Sikh religion as represented by their “Gurus” has always advocated the pursuit of salvation through disciplined, personal introspection on the name and message of God. To inculcate these techniques in our day to day living, Gurpurab was celebrated in SHAFA, both in Delhi and Kotdwar. Religious songs, keertan, ardas and rehras path & hyms were recited on the occasion. Few residents spoke about the teachings of Gurus and few spoke about the sacrifices they have made. This was followed by ‘KADA PARSHAD’. Few residents from Sikh religion volunteered for ‘Kar Seva’ for the day. Finally the day ended up with Bhangra.
