NEW DELHI, India—While the common masses of India are spending their lives peacefully at homes, the Sikh farmers of Punjab are struggling for their existence even on the most auspicious day of their prophet’s coming to this earth. The draconian laws pertaining to the procurement of farm produces have left no way out for the farmers besides taking up the journey of do-or-die against the Indian government.
On the eve of the 551st Parkash Purab of Guru Nanak Sahib, the struggling farmers are expressing their devotion towards Guru Nanak Sahib by illuminating dimwits and candles at the Delhi border.
Sikh24 has got access to some visuals of farmers illuminating candles and dimwits at Singhu border of Delhi to express their devotion towards Guru Nanak Sahib.
Meanwhile, it is learned that the struggling farmers are also organizing religious events on this auspicious day.
An old aged farmer Gurbachan Singh from Amritsar Sahib told Sikh24 that a religious event was organized at Singhu border in which Gurbani Path and Kirtan was performed followed by Ardas. “We cooked kheer, daal, and paranthas in the langar. In the evening, we have also distributed sweets,” he added.
“Common people of Delhi joined us to support our cause and celebrate Guru Nanak Sahib’s Parkash Purab”, Gurbachan Singh said.
