The Sikh community in the US will celebrate the historic swearing-in of Barack Obama as the US President with the first ever Sikh Inaugural Ball in Washington on January 20.

Being held a few blocks away from White House, Sikh Inaugural Ball would honour several Indian-Americans who played important role in the victory of Obama in the November 4 presidential election.

"This is the only community event happening for Obama. This is an occasion for Sikh community to celebrate the victory of Barack Obama," Gurveen Vohra, main organiser of the event, said.
