Guru Nanak Jayanti
After celebrating festival of light, Diwali in October, we get November loaded with events and festivals again. Guru Nanak Jayanti, also called Guru Nanak Gurupurab is to fall on November 4 and celebrations of the same start in early morning, around 4-5 a.m. They begin the day with morning hymns which are followed by exposition of the scripture and hymns from the Sikh scriptures, in order to praise the guru. They sing Gurbani at 1.20 a.m. as Guru Nanak was born at that particular time.
