This week we have a special episode for Vaisakhi. Normally the programme is sectioned into five areas/segments: Meanings, Shabad translation, History of the Sikhs, a Story and some inspirational songs. This week we've rolled the first three segments into one.

We cover in the first part of the programme, the history of Vaisakhi, the 5 K's of the Sikhs, what happens at the Gurdwara during this special day and recent developments for a dedicated Sikh calendar (see also: my posting from 11th April at:
http://drsavi.blogspot.com )

This weeks backing track is called Hari Har by Snatam Kaur from the CD Grace

Shabad Translations
We have 2 this week. One at the beginning of the programme:
Deh Shiva Bar Mohe (also known as the Sikh National Anthem)

and one at the end of the programme:
Dukh Bhanjan Tera Naam Ji

Inspirational songs this week include:
Free by the Lighthouse family - I thought of this as we need to remember the fight for freedom at the time of Vaisakhi.
There will come a day by Incognito from the CD LIfe Stranger than fiction
Waheguru - By Guru Singh and Friends (inc: Seal).

We hope you enjoy the show and we always value your feedback.

Kevin from my class said (after we listened to Episode 5 on our mp3 players):

"I liked the music in the Vaisakhi show. Can I ask what Sikhs would drink during this festival?"

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. You left 2 comments at the Sikhwithin website (Posting: Click here for Episode5:)
The answer to your question is that there is nothing special that Sikh's drink.

Hi Dr Savi

Thanks for replying to my student's question. If you would like to discuss synergies, then you can Skype me (Skype name is 'parslad'), or call me at 0131 208 0230. Did you have anything particular in mind?
