Guru Nanak Dev Ji was the first of the ten Sikh gurus and the founder of Sikhism. His birth anniversary is observed as ‘Gurpurab’ across the globe. The auspicious occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti was celebrated with great enthusiasm and fervor virtually by our young Presidians of Grade 2 and 3. The day commenced with the prayer to seek the blessings of the almighty. Thereafter, the students were told about the first Guru of the Sikh religion Guru Nanak Dev Ji, and that the religious book of Sikhs is known as Guru Granth Sahib and the devotees go to Gurudwara to invoke the blessings of almighty. They were also told that we should follow the path of universal brotherhood and harmony which are the key principles of Sikhism. They expressed their views on the religion through a speech and reciting of “EK ONKAR.” Towards the tail end of the assembly, the children even enjoyed watching a video on the significance of Gurpurab and understood the meaning of the 5 K’s of Sikhism i.e. Kesh, Kara, Kachera, Kirpan and Kanga.
