Sat Sri Akaal!

Hey everyone- I'm a Sikh too! :bhangra:

My fantastic Punjabi and Kirtan teacher, Bakshinder Aunty, got me into Sikhi. I was learning shabads with her for a while and she was absolutely fantastic! That's what got me interested in Sikhi.

I've been learning for about a year now. I know around 5 tunes, with 5 shabads, learning a 6th and 7th at the moment. And then I put a different shabad to a tune when I need to.

Have you/do you regularly perform at Gurdawara?

So was I, but that didn't make me passionate about Sikhi... I was asking about what in particular had influenced those who have come to love Sikhi, read gurbani, learn history etc like for me personally, I read Chaupai Sahib and everything changed.

wow youre quite a fast learner! did you learn from the basics like S R G M or did you already know that stuff?

yes i regularly perform at gurdwaras, although now this is coming along in fits and starts cos of exams...
and for anyone thats interested, theres a hemkunt sikh symposium and keertan darbar every year - basically speech and kirtan competitions. you can choose to do either.
its a very good way to meet other young sikhs and build your confidence, and theres even an international level!

there are usually classes at gurdwaras, and sometimes raagis teach there too...
well at least around london there are quite a few teachers and ustaads for most indian instruments as well as for kirtan
out of interest, where did you learn in india?
