"Basant Utsav "
1 Feb, 2014
We are celebrating Basant utsav on the 1st of February,
as a communal harmony day.
Persons belonging to different religions, join together and visit a temple to worship the goddess of learning Devi Saraswati and then they visit a dargah and offer chadar there.
Last year we went to Gauri Shankar Mandir in Chandni Chowk,
and then we went to Nizammuddin Aulia.
This year we are going to Hanuman Mandir in Cannaught Circus near Rivoli cinema at 11.00 a.m. and from there we shall proceed to Dargah Nizammuddin Aulia and offer prayers there between 1.00 p.m. and 1.30 p.m.
On the 2nd February we will celebrate Basant at Dilli Haat I.N.A
From 3.p.m. there will be Shehnai vadan, and from 5.30 onwards there will be a qawwaali programme by Gita Singh Chishti and party.
All are welcome!
