This year marks the 350th birth anniversary of the 10th Sikh guru Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Born in Bihar’s Patna as Gobind Rai, he was anointed as a spiritual leader of the Sikhs at the mere age of nine. He is known for his valiance and bravery on battlefields, especially those against the Mughals, as much as he is known for his philosophy, principles and spiritual teachings. He vehemently stood against social injustices, oppression and tyranny.

Devotees commemorate the day by organising mass processions. They share sweets and cold drinks (mostly sherbet) and sing devotional songs during the festivities. People gather at gurudwaras and pray for prosperity and blessings from the holy saint. Guru Gobind Singh Jayanti, just like other festivals in India, has friends, family members and loved ones getting together and gorging on a delicious spread of dishes. The spiritual leaders and elders narrate the Guru’s tales of courage and grit to the younger ones on this day.
