SACRAMENTO, Ca.: The Sikh Temple Sacramento and the Education Committee presented the colorful programme which was not only well organized but also thought provoking and entertaining.

After a Shabad by Ragi Singhs, Harbans Singh (who learnt Punjabi in Sunday School) spoke in Punjabi on importance of Vaisakhi and was followed by Jago, a Punjabi folk lore sung on happy occasions. The script “Parbe Likhey Ate Unpath” was very informative. Ladies’ Gidha and Boys’ bhangra was simply superb.

Jagat Singh Rye and Jaswinder Singh’s comic presentation kept the audience laughing. Jagat Singh Rye’s role was a surprise to the audience. One act play of Sanyasi Sadhu was satirical and good but because of the microphone’s inadequacy flopped.

The very young children’s participation in Bhangra, Jago and Gidha was commendable. Organizers seemed to have taken great pains to make it a success. They deserve all the praise for maintaining the sanctity of the occasion. The master of ceremonies was also master of the stage too. Her introduction and comments were appropriate and to the point.
