  3. Villagers work overnight in gurdwaras to prepare food for flood-hit valley people KAPURTHALA/NAWANSHAHR: Devotees worked overnight in gurdwara kitchens to send fresh langar (food) for flood victims in Jammu & Kashmir. It was a rather odd time for the call to prepare langar, but the response by devotees and volunteers at gurdwaras and deras to prepare food was also unusual. Womenfolk left their homes around 2am to reach gurdwaras and deras of their villages to ensure that langar was ready at the break of the dawn. Villagers had finished their dinner when Kapurthala district administration approached some local Sikh holy men and gurdwaras on Friday night requesting them to prepare langar for the flood-hit people of the Valley. "We requested them in night, but by 6am on Saturday, everything was ready and two pickup vans left for Amritsar airport with 50 bags of packed paranthas/chapatis, vegetables and pickle, from where it was airlifted to flood-hit areas," said Kapurthala deputy commissioner (DC) D S Mangat. Gurwinder Singha, volunteer working with environmentalist Baba Balbir Singh Seecehwal, said, "We immediately started working like boiling chana (Bengal gram) and potatoes. Messages were sent to women that they would be picked up around 2am to reach deras/gurdwaras to prepare paranthas. Seechewal was first approached by the administration around 8.30pm on Friday for preparing langar. Apart from Seechewal, Sant Daya Singh of Gurdwara Tahli Sahib in Balerkhanpur village, Sant Leader Singh at Gurdwara Chhevin Patshahi in Saiflabad village and Sant Amrik Singh in Khukhrain village also started working and summoned their devotees late in the night to prepare food. "We came here around 2am and ensured that langar was ready before 6am," said Gurdev Kaur, who was among 30 women working at Nirmal Kuttiya of Baba Seechewal at Sultanpur Lodhi. In Talwnadi Madho village, 50 women started working past midnight along with some men. In Amarjitpur, some women prepared paranthas at their homes and took these to Sultanur Lodhi by 3am. "We made paranthas as these would remain in good condition even if these can't be distributed immediately," said Sant Daya Singh and Baba Seechewal. Nawanshahr DC Anindita Mitra said at Gurdwara Tibba Sahib, around 10,000 paranthas were prepared overnight and these were sent to Chandigarh airport at 7am. "After looking at the response from people to prepare langar at gurdwaras, we will send freshly-cooked food every morning," said Mitra. In the historical Gurdwara Sukhchainana Sahib in Phagwara, chapatis were prepared throughout the night and these were sent to Amritsar in the morning.

  6. Preparations for Sarbat Khalsa underway in Pakistan AMRITSAR SAHIB (June 23, 2014)The Pakistan Gurdwara Committee has reportedly started to prepare for the proposed Sarbat Khalsa (largest Sikh enclave) at Sri Nanakana Sahib on the occasion of birth anniversary of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji in the month of November to resolve the row of the Nanakshahi Calendar. For this purpose, the plan has been made to constitute an elected body of Pakistans Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) after a gap of nearly three years. It has been reported that the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) , parent body of PSGPC , has decided to hold elections of PSGPC within three weeks time under a planned strategy. An elected body of Sikhs would have more authority to call Sarbat Khalsa in Pakistan. The PSGPC was dissolved about three years ago, and its acting body was working under the headship of Sardar Sham Singh. ETPB secretary, Azhar Sulehari, has confirmed the elections of PSGPC would be held in the near future. He mentioned that the elections should help Sikhs manage their local affairs in a better way. In Amritsar, appointed Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Giani Gurbachan Singh, has announced that only the SGPC has rights to call Sarbat Khalsa.

  7. Govt prepares 14-page draft for Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Act CHANDIGARH: To appease the 47 lakh Sikh voters of the state ahead of assembly elections, the Congress government has prepared a draft Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Act, 2014. Delaying the formation of a separate body for managing Sikh shrines in the state for many years after coming to power in 2005, chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda plans to announce the new entity next month. Sources said that the 14-page draft is lying with the chief minister's office (CMO), awaiting Hooda's approval. The issue could be part of the agenda for cabinet meeting to be held on Tuesday. Hooda might make the announcement on or before July 6 when he is scheduled to attend the Sikh Mahasamellan convened by the ah hoc Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (HSGPC) at Kaithal, they said. The government was keen on bringing an ordinance during the cabinet meeting to solve the contentious matter while Sikh bodies were insisting on a special assembly session to pass the bill. The move for a separate Sikh body will have a bearing on assembly segments in Ambala, Kurukshetra, Karnal, Kaithal, Sirsa and Fatehabad districts, where Sikhs have a considerable population. Haryana cabinet ministers Randeep Singh Surjewala and Harmohinder Singh Chatha are in touch with members of HSGPC (ad hoc) headed by Jadish Singh Jhinda and Didar Singh Nalwi. HSGPC (ad hoc) president Jhinda confirmed being in touch with CMO officials and ministers Surjewala and Chatha. "This is the question of dignity of Sikhs in Haryana. What we have been asking for was allotted to us after reorganization of Punjab in 1996 and it was signed by Akali MPs then," Jhinda said. The issue of HSGPC has been hanging fire since 2005 when Congress included it as an issue in its election manifesto. In March 2007, the then Ambala City MLA Nirmal Singh had moved a private bill where 80 MLAs had given positive response to the matter. INLD legislators had refrained from commenting on the issue. After the proposal was mooted by the state government, the cabinet had constituted a three-member committee headed by senior minister Chatha to examine the demand of Sikhs from Haryana. Soon, around 2.75 lakh Sikhs submitted affidavits to Chatha committee seeking a separate Sikh body in Haryana. Currently, gurdwara affairs of Haryana are controlled by Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) based at Akal Takht, Amritsar. SGPC exercises control over 72 ancient gurdwaras, which have a total annual turnover of Rs 172 crore as donations from devotees and other means.
