MY TURBAN IS MY CROWN 👑
To everyone who's reading
Born in a Sikh family, surrounded by all the loving people, has been my constant support always. The day I was born, I've stolen hearts of many, as my Mumma (mom) says.
Always been beautiful and charming Just as my mom or Maybe less than her, she's the prettiest one in the family till now...
I was introduced to Sikh tradition when I turned 6 months old. My mom uses to recite Mool Mantra,

the first baani (path) that every mother or anyone in the family recites to a newborn. Well, WAHEGURU was the first word that I said, as everyone says in the family.
I was just like the other girls who love to get ready, wear anything and everything without any hesitations.
It was my second year of graduation, in 2010. I went to college gave an exam and it was my last exam luckily.. came back home after finishing my exam and was enjoying my holiday. During vacation, I started going to Gurudwara Sahib early morning around; 3.30 a.m.
Few days passed by, I was continuing the same routine. It was Lucknow Samagam ( traditional program ) in which all the keertaniyas come from different parts of the world and the samagam lasts for 2-3 days. I was aware of all this process, ever since I grew up, as my mom's family was baptized (one who takes naam of their guru/ Amrit chakhna ) and my Nanaji and Nanima use to go to samagam when my mom was young.
I asked my mom whether we should go for Samagam? as I wasn't feeling good those days, that's all that I remember. Due to some odd reasons, I wanted to move out of the city to get some mental peace. She agreed and we booked our Seats for the amalgam. It was the same day today 22 August 2010 when we Left for Lucknow Samagam. It's a 6-7 hour's journey from my place ( Bareilly ). We reached there in the evening and then, the people who organized this Samagam were waiting to pick up the Sangat ( people who came) from the railway station.
We reunited with them and left for our designation,; where all the arrangements were made for our accommodation and food.
It was our first day there, we got freshen up and left for the keertan program which was scheduled from 7 pm till 9.30 pm.
Two days passed away, and then on the last day, while I was getting ready for the last keertan program, I felt something strange, which was unusual at that time for everyone. I requested my mom I want to get baptized, and she thought I am kidding. She asked me again- Are you sure about it Beta?
No one was ready to believe in, that I have made this decision because according to everyone's perception, everyone was thinking I will become a model or a designer. Just because I was just like every other girl who loves to dress, wear jewelry etc...and the list continues.
Now the questions that were being asked to me at that moment- are you okay? does something happen to me? pakka Amrit chakhna hai? Ek bar soch lo? whether it's my decision or I'm doing it forcefully?
And answer to everyone's questions as- it was all my decision and no one has forced me for this amazing opportunity! I got mesmerized by watching newborn children who were getting ready for Amrit Sanchar ( baptizing). I thought when these little ones can do, why not me?
On August 25, 2010 ( it was Raksha Bandhan that day ), I got baptized and got my crown 👑 on my head. My turban is my Crown and I am proud to be a Sikh.🙏💜
