312 years on…Happy Vaisakhi

Today I would like to congratulate Sikhs around the world for Vaisakhi and also extend my humble good wishes to the rest of  humanity. 

There are lots of articles on the web about Vaisakhi, however, for me, it represents a significant change in the Sikh religion. The events of 1699 resulted in the creation of identity, a willingness to stand up for yourself, to battle against oppression and tyranny, make hawks from sheep.  312 years on, I, together with so many, still carry the identity given to us, for they are gifts for life. 

All around the world, Sikh communities celebrate Vaisakhi by hosting a parade and one of the great things about this is the joining in of other faiths, it really is fantastic. Our parade runs this weekend and I hope to capture some nice pictures for you all to see.  Joy, colour, harmony, charity, togetherness are just some of the themes of such events and hope to bring this through in my pictures.

“Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh!” (Khalsa belongs to God, let victory be to God).
