In an experience purely spiritual in nature, the Sikh Sangat here preferred to ring in the New Year in the presence of the Guru at Gurdwara Sahib, Fremont, participating in a 27-hour long Keertan and Katha Darbar that began at 5:30 pm on December 31, 2009 and went on till 9:30 pm o fJanuary 1, 2010.
As the sangat was awashed in the religiosity inside, outside there was langar going on which was run by well known Punjabi restaurant Kabila and another, Tandoor Wale. Apart from these, many enthusiastic members of the sangat were also running langars of tea and pakoras.
Even last year, a similar 29-hour long Kirtan Darbar was organized. Gurughar’s chief sewadar Bhai Harjot Singh Khalsa said he is eternally grateful to Akal Purakh for His blessings. He specially thanked Bhai Sukhwinder Singh and Bhai Nirpal Singh Muchhiana who performed the sewa of parking.
