Colourful Procession Starts from Khalsa College to Golden Temple

Amritsar: A colourful religious procession today took off from historic Khalsa College to reach Golden Temple amidst much-fanfare and religious fervour. The students from various educational institutions under Khalsa College Governing Council (KCGC) formed queues, chanted holy hymns from Gurbani and paraded through various parts of the city to pay obeisance at Harmandar Sahib.
 
The procession was part of the 550th birth anniversary `Parkash Purab’ of Guru Nanak Dev, said the management. The display of Gatkas (Sikh martial art), music of the bands, PT Show and beating of the drums was witnessed as the students chanted hymns. The procession, led by the decorated palanquin in which the Guru Granth Sahib was placed, had the participants clad in colourful dresses and attires.
 
The Panj Piaras (five beloveds), the top management functionaries, Principals, teaching and non-teaching staff of the colleges and schools took part in the massive parade, which passed through GT Road, Putlighar, Railway Station, Bhandari Bridge, Hall Gate, Hall Bazar, Kotwali and culminated at  Ghanta Ghar outside the Golden Temple precincts. Though an annual feature, the procession this year was dedicated to Guru Nanak’s 550th birth anniversary, said KCGC President Satyajit Singh Majithia. 

 
He along with honourary secretary Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina and other office bearers said the procession was aimed to highlight the philosophy and teachings of Guru Nanak, who advocated universal brotherhood, humanity and peaceful co-existence. They appealed all to follow the teachings of the Guru. 

 
The parade also highlighted the protection of environment and checking the menace of  pollution as no plastic was used throughout the procession which was more than eight kilometres in length. The volunteers from NCC and NSS cleaned the roads through which the procession passed.
