Categories: Uncategorized

Scottish Sikhs officially welcomed Team India to Glasgow as part of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. 
Team India were welcomed by Young Sikh Leaders who performed Scotland the Brave using bagpipes and the Dhol (Panjabi drums). The Team participated in a Community Prayer with a performance from the National Guru Granth Sahib Youth Choir to bless them during their time in Glasgow and to grant the athletes success during the Games. 
Glasgow Gurdwara honoured Chef de Mission, Raj Singh with a Siropa (Sikh robe of honours), a Glasgow 2014 Clyde mascot fashioned with its very own Tartan Turban. Each athlete also received a box of traditional Glaswegian tablet from Glasgow’s oldest sweet shop, ‘Glickman’s.’
Charandeep Singh, General Secretary, said,
“The Glasgow Sikh community is proud to be a part of the Glasgow 2014 Games. With excitement, we cheered 7 Glaswegian Sikhs who carried the Queen’s Baton and with equal enthusiasm we hosted Team India at the Gurdwara, enhancing the Cultural Legacy of the Games. 
“We wish Team India all the success and best wishes to all the athletes competing in the Games.”
