There was an event organised by the Nishkam Sewak Jatha (www.gnnsj.org) at Northolt over the bank holiday weekend (Aug 2005). It included an Akhand Path, Interfaith Conference, Childrens Camps, Kirtan 'competition', lectures by Prof Surinder Singh, a tabla concert, video showings of various initiatives by the GNNS jatha, an excellent exibition, gatka displays...
As I now own a digital camera I decided to take some pictures. I was fortunate to meet two famous sikh bloggers, as well Fauja Singh the runner, Sant Satnam Singh, Shiv Charan Singh Khalsa and many others.
Here are some of the pictures I took.
