While i was being accused of writing comments on the people's blog with anonymous nick, they did not know that i was off to the Sant Sipahi Camp during the weekend :)
IMPORTANCE OF ARDAAS
First of all i would like to share with you the importance of doing ardass to Guru Maharaj and ask for blessings before going off to any trip. This happen to us on the way going to Melaka Gurdwara. We left to Melaka without asking the AGIAA of Guru Maharaj. On the way there, after Seremban, suddenly our bus had this loud weird sound and smoke started coming out from the gearbox which is located behind part of the bus. Then our bus had to stop. We got down and saw that that the many of the parts of the gearbox had dropped on the roadside and the cars were going so fast. We had to remove all the parts of the gearbox from the road as two cars just stopped behind us with a flat tyre. As the cars were coming fast and it was dark at night, 5 of us had to run untill the middle of the highway to carry the fallen parts as we worried that simply other innocent people will face accident.
Then later we saw far away a biker lying at the side of the road and was injured. We ran towards him and luckly he wasnt injured badly. He told us that he was going at the side of the road and suddenly he hit into something and he flew and did Summersault 3 times and he dropped and we saw his bike was bad shape, his engine broke and his blackoil flew everywhere on the road. Luckly Jagdeep saw him from far, or not he will be left there alone injured in the dark and no cars might have stopped for him and at the same time his handphone batery had died. Waheguru tera Shukar Hai.
Later we got to found out that there were some sharp steel rods lying on the road and one of it flew into the bus gearbox. Before it happen to us, 3 cars also got flat tyres infront of us.
Then we called the Plus and they came. Spike and Amirshan was the heroes as they changed the flat tyre's of the two cars. Then the PLUS came and took control of the situation and they took the motorcyclist to the hospital. Then we had to wait for another two hours for the next bus. All in the bus remaind calm and we played some games and did kirtan. Then we remembered that we did not do ardass before leaving.
SANT SIPAHI CAMP
We took the bus and we arrived at Melaka Gurdwara around 1.3oam. We washed up and had a fantastic amritwela session. We did our amritwela session in the garden of the Gurdwara as the Darbar Sahib was clossed. It was very peaceful and havoc amritwela session.
Next day we woke up and had the first simran & IPS session. Simran was done by Jasbeanti and it was amaizing and superb. Then Veerji Sher gave katha about how to live a Sipahi lifestyle.
Then after that it was the Lunch time and we expecting that the Langgar was made by the Sewadar but all of us we were instructed to make langgar together. It was something different. The objective was to make us feel that during the Guru's time when they went for war and came back, the Sipahi had to make their own langgar althought they were tired. All had fun in making pappar, "crying" while cutting onions :) , making sabji, rice and lots more. The langgar was havoc and tasty.
Later we had gatka session and were thought on how to use the sothi, and the one thing that goes round and round and we have to stand in the middle to move it and has plastic balls on the side( Sorry i forgot the name, will some one tell me, thanks) it was nice.
While there was a demostratiom going on how will the combat happen, two of the sewadars, Harwin and Ravin came and threw water at the participants and later we had the Water Fight Session. We had alot of fun making people wet. I was also wet from top to bottom.
Then we went and clean up the Gurdwara on the mess we did for the water fight and went clean up overselfs and we had session teaching on how to tie Dhurmalla. It was shown by amirshan, as he ties very it very beautifully. We had kirtan session and question & answer session at night. Giani Harcharan Singh also did kirtan. He did it ghajkay and powerpack.
Next day we had gatka in the morning we learned more. We were also given a demostration by Jessy on how they will do KILA( many people attack one person in the middle) It was damm nice and we tried the KILA on our instructors like Jessy, Spike, Harwin and The bercham veerji. They defended themselves very well with their own diffrent skills. It was nice to see these. Later we had our last IPS session by Nikiten Jatha lead by veer Charanbir. It was ghajkay also. After that we packed our bags and left to KL without forgetting to do Ardass first. :)
I had alot of fun at the camp while learning alot. Cant wait for the next camp.
The pictures of the camp i will upload soon as i need to get it from Harwin.
