Holla Mohalla and the Prince of Wales

On Monday Me Manvir Singh and other who are part of Sweet Sikhi, London BOSS (British Organisation of Sikh Students) and Baba Fateh Singh Gatka Akhara attended celebrations of Holla Mohalla at Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara Hounslow, West London. They just made the gurdwara bigger it’s been finished to a high spec and very professional.

The dress code was suite and tie, I went in Cholla and Manvir Singh in Kurta Pajama. I was waiting for someone to complain but everyone was to busy. The first person to comment was the Prince of Wales who we met and he commented along the lines of “Nice to see someone in there right dress.” Made my day!

Anyway was a great day. Baba Fateh Singh Gatka Akhara did gatka and it was excellent as usual. My Ustad Bahi Uptej Singh Ji and the team was the Prince and Duchess clutching there chairs. Next day it was all over the UK media in news papers and today on national TV. Its been great publicity for Sikhs and Gatka which has for long been ignored on the international arena. I will be adding more photos and short videos this weekend of the day.

Saw these guys on Richard & Judy earlier today and they were absolutely amazing! Great to see the warrior side of Sikhism given wider exposure too.
