The annual Barsi Semagam of Sant Baba Tara Singh ji attracted a record number of visitors and well-wishes this year. All estimates indicate that around 500,000 attended the program, including well-known Sikh personalities and visitors from overseas. As with previous years, the volunteer sewadars and public at large gave their all to make the event a success. This barsi semagam is now one of the largest to be held in Punjab.

The program started off with the Arambh of Sri Akhand Paath Sahib on 30 Dec 2010, followed by an all-night Kirtan Darbar the following day and ending with Bhog the morning after on the 1st of Jan 2011. It was truly a great way to usher in the new year!
