The event held at the Days Inn Hotel, Ruislip on 22nd November 09 was attended by over 350 guests including the students of the World Sikh University & Khalsa College London.


The guest of honour was the High Commissioner of India to Britain His Excellency, Nalin Surie along with Mr Virendra Sharma MP & Mr Stephen Pound MP.


The Event started with a recitation of Gurbani Shabad followed by a cultural program and with the symbolic lighting of a diva (an auspicious light).


In his key note speech His Excellency Nalin Surie, praised the founder of the Sikh faith Guru Nanak Devji for giving a set of rules which benefit the entire mankind. He further said that Guru Nanak Devji’s teachings have become more important than ever in a world which is fast shrinking.

His message was simple; we are all children of one God regardless of gender and religion. Dr. Ranger also paid tribute to the leadership of Vice Chancellor, Dr. Sukhbir Singh Kapoor for making the World Sikh University a world class Institution in just 12 years.
