Nal charkhiyan desh nai azaad hoya, avein lokh Gandhi vargyain nu sehra banai firde,

Khoon dholke jina lai azaadi, kurbani ohna di aaj bhulai firde,
Bhul gaye sare Bhagat Singh soorme nu, Ehvi Gandhi nu bapu bani firde!!!

What will be in the 'Youth Area'? bruv? Anyone got pics from last year?

"Jay Sau Chanda Ugavhi Sooraj Charhhi Hajaar. Eytey Chaanan Hodiaa Gur Bin Ghor Andhaar."

If a hundred moons were to rise, and a thousand suns appeared even with such light, there would still be pitch darkness without the Guru.

- Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji in Raag Aasaa on Pannaa 463
