Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Sangat Jiyo,

As you are all aware, the festivities will be taking place in handsworth park on sunday 22nd april from 10-5pm.

BUT it won't be the usual mela as this year will be different, because of youth now involved in planning the mela and the main focus on Sikhi parchar!

There will be a massive darbar sahib marquee set up for Guru Maharaaj with kirtan, katha, dhadi, youth programs etc......throughout the day.

However many ppl are expected to come and SEWADAARS ARE NEEDED for joriya di sewa and crowd control.

The success of the event depends on the number of sewadaars. :)

So PPLLZZZZZZZZZ forward your name and contact details to one of the below mentioned email addresses.

Everyone who has volunteered will be contacted about meetings in the coming weeks, prior to the event.

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh


Unfortunately the post hasn't raised a great deal of interest. Before further requests for sewadaars on the day, a few shady areas will be clarified.


Up to 60,000 ppl are expected to attend the park throughout the day, thousands of which will matha tekh at darbar sahib.


The youth are mostly organising the event which wasn't apparent in previous years. The new idea involves, as mentioned before, a huge darbar sahib marquee. The darbar sahib where Maharaj's parkaash will be totally separate from the rides area. The rides have been reduced and will be on the other side of the park. The usual stage show with the bhangra dancers and other things will NOT be on this year. Instead kirtan, katha (english and punjabi) and dhadi will take place in darbar sahib, there will also be a youth stage. It will just be one big kirtan darbar. The sewadaars will ensure that everything runs sweetly on the day.

There will be up to 100-150 sewadaars on the day but there is a shortage for darbar sahib sewa. The darbar sahib is the most important and rewarding of all sewa's. Alot of the youth are already tied up doing other sewa on the day, which is why WE NEED YOU PAAJI'S AND PENJI'S TO HELP ON THE DAY!!

The potential for Sikhi awareness is massive. The wider community will be made to feel more welcome on the day and in turn they will learn alot about Sikhi.

The emphasis this year will go away from the usual cultural influence and onto Sikhi parchar. With Vaheguru's kirpa the organisers will need the support of the youth to make it a success. With kirpa the youth will do the same in other 'melay' across the country in the coming years.

So again please help in darbar sahib sewa AND EMAIL your name and contact details

sikhthetruth@hotmail.co.uk or

sukh.pahal@vaisakhibirmingham.org.uk (NOTE: On this address please specify that you will be doing darbar sahib/joriya di sewa)

Sewadaars will be informed of the meeting which is taking place at the end of the month.
