Birmingham Vaisakhi Handsworth Park 2007 No 308
I attended the Vaisakhi as usual this year. It is interesting to see this developing. There is a clear movement towards events having people from all communities at them. Going back to 1999 (No 300) it was overwhelmingly Sikh. Today I would think that there were many many people there who were not Sikh.
This is to be welcomed (as was the Sikhs performing as part of the St Patrick's day parade).
It does not undermine the reason for the event - which is the 308th anniversary of the creation of the Khalsa.
