Day 1

Punjab- the Land of Gurus, the Land of Pirs and Fakirs -Can be your perfect Getaway for 3 to 4 days.

Punjab - 'panj' means 'five' and 'aab' mean 'water'.

So Punjab is a land where five Holy rivers enroute - the Ravi, the Beas, the Chenab, the Jhelum,and the Satluj.

But after partition, the part of Punjab in India has only three of them.

Punjab - a land where the seeds of Sikhism were sown and they florished so rapidly and vastly, such that we can't imagine Punjab without that.

The roots of spirituality, sacrifice are so strong - something which binds Punjab all together.

So a trip Punjab is a must one:-

Something which I can called as "Shan-e- Punjab".

Golden temple a name which needs no introduction or explanation.

I recommend visiting Golden Temple in morning, otherwise the line of Darshan keeps on extending to innumerable.

First time I entered Golden temple, the aura you experience at that place , the Vibe, it kinda of eliminate all the negativity inside you. A new Ray of hope, to be a good person and To be spiritually connected to your roots , enshines within you.

A good thing which I learnt there was , when you see people there ; they also passionate about their work - it doesn't matter which work they are doing because I believe,

A work done for humanity is never questionable or small.

Have langer and do sewa and make sure to take parasad with you back home.
