To teach people about the glorious history of the Sikhs and to encourage the use of Punjabi, Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak (Management) Committee is set to organise its biggest-ever summer camp this year.
At 'Maa boli' - to be held in Gurudwaras and Singh sabhas - people would be taught about sikh Gurus' history and the culture of Sikhism. There would be a separate workshop for parents to teach them how to tie pagdi (turban) too. The camp would be open for all; anyone who wants to learn Punjabi can enroll.

"The history of the Sikh is very dignified. But today, people are not interested. More importance is given to other languages than Punjabi. School children are not opting for Punjabi language due to which they are getting away from Punjabi history and culture. So, it has been decided to spread Punjabi history through the camp. Local Singh Sabaha Gurudwaras too have been asked to join the camp. Letters are written to them so that along with children, elderly people can also join the camp," said DSGPC general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa.

Citing a report from the United Nations, Sirsa said that Punjabi is among 4000 languages that are going to be extinct in the next 50 years. "Thus it's our responsibility to spread it as much as we can."
