Sangat Ji,

UAE Sikhs

Dear All,


The past few days have been very hectic for all team members of Sarbat Da Bhala who participated actively in promoting our agenda of anti- alcoholism, smoking and narcotics along with our guest Mr. Fauja Singh.

We are thankful to Mr. Shawinder Singh Ji, Mr SP Singh Ji and all our Core Committee members without whose co-operation and support this whole exercise would not have been possible. It would be noteworthy to mention the names of Mr Jaideep Singh, Mr Prabhjeet Singh, Mr Jagroop Singh and Mr Amanjeet Singh who stood by and worked day and night for this cause. Our heartiest thanks to all other command center and volunteer members also who worked hard to make our participation in the Kabaddi Cup and the subsequent exercise a huge success.

Our chief guest Mr. Fauja Singh was so full of energy at all times in spite of his hectic schedule. We must all draw inspiration from this Gursikh and take a pledge to follow a HEALTHY BODY! HEALTHY MIND! HEALTHY SOUL, regimen from today itself. Our motive behind this very exercise was to convey to the society that Sarbat Da Bhala stands tall & outright with all such people & organizations who are working against widespread and abominable evils like Alcoholism, Smoking, Narcotics, etc. Thus trying to follow the path shown by "SRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI "

We are sending you several links regarding the overwhelming response & the press/media coverage this exercise received. Please do forward these to others to spread across the message that Sarbat Da Bhala will always stand and strive for.
