A mesmerizing Bhangra presentation by the students fascinated everyone. Sikhs celebrate this very important day of their religion with joy and devotion by visiting gurudwaras and later celebrating with bhangra, gidda and baisakhi fairs etc. They also informed about the different ways of celebrating this festival in various regions of India such as Gudi Padwa in Maharashtra, Baisakhi in Punjab, Rongali Bihu in Assam, Ugadi in Andhra Pradesh etc. Students mesmerized everyone by reciting a shabad. The festive assembly concluded with bhangra on a peppy number.
