In a tribute to the courage and sacrifices of Sahibzada Zorawar Singh and Sahibzada Fateh Singh, sons of Guru Gobind Singh, the Consulate General of India in New York hosted an exhibition on Veer Bal Diwas. The event aimed to commemorate the extraordinary valour and unparalleled sacrifices made by the ‘Veer Sahibzade’ on Tuesday.
The Consulate showcased the exhibition to honor the exemplary courage and immortal sacrifice of Veer Sahibzaade, proud sons of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Members of the Indian-American community attended the event in large numbers to pay homage and tributes to the ‘Veer Sahibzade.’ In response to a request from a local gurdwara priest, the exhibition will be displayed at the Consulate premises until December 28 and will also be featured at gurdwaras in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
Acting Consul General of India in New York, Varun Jeph, visited the Gurdwara Baba Makhan Shah Lubana in Queens earlier in the day. He paid obeisance to the Veer Sahibzade, joined the executive committee members and local sangat in performing ardas and kirtan, and shared in the langar with community members.
Special videos on Veer Bal Diwas are being presented at the gurdwara for young students attending winter camps. The Consulate General of India in Houston also observed Veer Bal Diwas, featuring a photo exhibition showcasing the courage and resilience of Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s Sahibzade.
The Indian Embassy in the US highlighted a Shaheedi Samagam at Brookfield Gurdwara, Wisconsin, where Sikh and Indian American leaders, along with senior Embassy officials, participated. The event paid a fitting tribute to the exemplary courage and sacrifice of the ‘sahibzadas’ of Guru Gobind Singh, marking #VeerBaalDiwas.
These initiatives underscore the significance of preserving and commemorating the historical valor and sacrifices made by the revered figures in Sikh history, emphasizing the cultural and spiritual richness that forms an integral part of the Indian diaspora in the United States.
