Junior College Faculty visit to Amritsar
March 20-22, 2015



The trip for 28 Jr. College faculty to the revered Golden Temple in Amritsar was designed as a spiritual journey of finding oneself.
The first visit on arrival was to Gurdwara Sri Tarn Taran Sahib. The site has the distinction of having the largest sarovar of all the gurdwaras. This was followed by a dose of patriotism! The team witnessed the closing 'lowering of the flags' ceremony, or The Beating Retreat ceremony, before sunset at the Wagah border. The spectacle of the ceremony attracts many visitors from both sides of the border, as well as international tourists.
Sr. College Vice-Principals Dr. Rekha Bahadur & Prof. Heena Thakkar joined the team next morning for a visit to the Harmandir Sahib, also Darbar Sahib and informally referred to as the "Golden Temple", the holiest Sikh gurdwara located in the city of Amritsar. It was a beautiful and enriching experience with the team returning for another visit to seek spiritual solace and religious fulfillment as well as to visit other historical sites within the temple premises.
Eating the guru-ka-langar catering to everyone from paupers to millionaires, is a humbling demonstration of the Sikh principle of hospitality. A visit to the historic Jallianwala Bagh was moving as it commemorates the 1500 Indians killed or wounded when a British officer ordered his soldiers to shoot on unarmed protesters in 1919. Some of the bullet holes are still visible in the walls, as is the well into which hundreds desperately leapt to avoid the bullets. On the last day the team visited the Sri Durgiana Temple dedicated to the goddess Durga. This 16th century temple is a Hindu version of the Golden Temple.
Surrounded by a holy water tank, it's often called the Silver Temple because of its exquisitely engraved silver doors. Blessings were sought for the welfare of all H.R.
College students and faculty, With this began the return journey to Mumbai with fulfillment in heart, mind and soul.
