Dr. Nikky Guninder Kaur - "Bhai Vir Singh's Cosmic Symphony and its Poetic Resonance"

Dr. Nikky Guninder Kaur's presentation explores Bhai Vir Singh’s early and final lyrics from his respective anthologies Trel Tupke and Mere Sainyan Jio. The images and themes important to Bhai Vir Singh early on in life replay in amazing beauty years later in his final poetic discourse. Together, they provide valuable insights into the poet’s vast psychological and mystical world. Through the profound simplicity of his language and the intensity of his emotions, Bhai Vir Singh creates a cosmic symphony that is both magical and practical. My paper analyzes the aesthetic power of his poetry that continues to resonate in the psyche of his readers. How exactly does his artistic pen inspire intellectual vigor and moral responsibility?

Jassa Singh Ahluwalia

This is the story of Jassa Singh Ahluwalia (1718-1783) ), of the most outstanding leaders Sikhs have had. As a leader of the Dal Khalsa, he prepared the Sikh community to take control of its own destiny in the most troubled times and write a chapter on its own in the annals of history. His leadership helped the Sikh community through multiple genocidal campaigns and turned out sovereigns in Panjab, a North-Western region in South Asia. What lessons can we learn from this figure in Sikh history from birth to death?
