In a bid to revive the traditional “tanti saaz,” the 85-year-old SGPC-run Shaheed Sikh Missionary College here has made special arrangements to impart its training to pupils.

The Shaheed Sikh Missionary College was established in 1923 by Master Tara Singh, the legendary president of the Shiromani Akali Dal who ruled the hearts of the Sikhs for about half a century, in the memory of the martyrs of Nankana Sahib.

Interestingly, apart from Sikhism, the college teaches, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and other religions and their comparative study.

According to Prof Suba Singh, principal of the college, who has dual charge of Sikh Missionary College, Gurdwara Budha Johar (Rajasthan), 95 students of the local college were getting training in traditional “tanti saaz” these days.
