Baisakhi celebrations from today to add colour to Hyderabad”

The festival of harvests is celebrated on April 13 every year and on 14 once in 36 years.

The procession featured decorated floats and Sikhs in traditional dress. Some carried swords and were barefoot as they made their way to St George's Square.

Jaswant Singh Sohanpal, of the Guru Nanak Gurdwara temple in Huddersfield, said: "The goal of nagar kirtan is to take the message of God to the doorsteps of the community".

Sikh pilgrims took part in the festival and performed religious rituals and prayers.

The procession was led by five Amritdhari Khalsa Sikhs who have confirmed their vows by taking Amrit, similar to a confirmation ceremony.

Visiting pilgrims expressed their joy of celebrating Baisakhi in Pakistan where some said they were overwhelmed by the warmth and love they received from Pakistanis.

President of Prabhandak Committee of Gurudwara Saheb, Ameerpet, S. Bhagender Singh, and general secretary S. Surender Singh said Khalsa Saajna Divas, which falls on April 14, a "Vishaal Deewan" (mass congregation), main attraction of the celebrations, would be organised at Sri Guru Gobind Singhji playgrounds at Ameerpet from 11 a.m.to 4 p.m.in which Sikh devotees and people of other faiths would converge.
