Written by Shilpi Gupta

The important or significant days associated with Sikh gurus are known as ‘Gurpurab’, the word Gurpurab is made of two words ‘Guru’ and ‘Purab’ (Parv or festival). On 4th November, Sikh community celebrates the birth anniversary of their first Guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji (founder of Sikhism). This year, Hindu festival, Guru Purnima is also observed on the same date of Guru Nanak Jayanti. Sikh people celebrate this festival with lightning, crackers and by giving sweets to their loved one. They offered Prayers in Gurudwara and perform Nagar Kirtan. Prabhat Pheri is also observed on Gurupurab, early in the morning.

Sikh people follow Gurbani and also do the Paath of Guru Granth Sahib in Gurudwara. Guru Nanak Dev Ji started the langar or free kitchen which was designed to establish the equality between all people regardless of their cast, color, religion, gender, and social status, which is now followed in every gurudwara. People sever vegetarian food with all devotion to every person. Guru Nanak Jayanti is celebrated in every country by Sikh people but celebrated as a colorful festival in Punjab and Haryana.
