    Baru Sahib,The Divine Valley of Peace, located in the underdeveloped region of Himachal Pradesh celebrated Baisakhi with great enthusiasm. The three day long programme attracted thousands of devotees from all over the country, well wishers and the local people to this remote region.

    The programme began with the Akhand Path on 12th April. Gurmat kirtan, kavi darbar, katha and numerous religious activities continued on all the three days. On 14th April there were over ten thousand who participated in the Nagar Kirtan which was a grand event. The mile-long procession included children from Akal Academy,Akal College Of Engineering and Technology, Gurmat vidhyalaya girls,local school children and thousands of devotees. Boys and girls put up a thrilling performance of gatka and martial arts with blindfolded daring acts.Girls of the Gurmat Vidhalaya presented a formal guard of honour supported by band and kirpans to GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI.

    91 volunteers were baptized through Amrit Sanchar.

    In the evening there was a grand wrestling event which attracted wrestlers of national and international repute from Punjab,Haryana and Delhi. Thousands of spectators were thrilled to watch the fiercely contested fights which they had never seen earlier.

    The Gurudwara complex was beautifully lighted and decorated. Guru ka Langar continued round the clock with kirtan and devotional music bringing peace and inner joy.

    All those who were fortunate to attend Baisakhi at Baru Sahib will remember the event for a very long time.
