A man interviewed during the Surrey Sikh Day Parade had no clue why Vaisakhi is celebrated. He’s heard saying on live tv that “this year’s Vaisaskhi program was great.” The reporter asks him if he knew why Vaisakhi was celebrated. The man comically responds why saying “now that’s a bit too much.”
It’s quite amazing that one of the most important days in Sikh history is largely unknown to many born in the religion. Many people know how to eat the different types of food but have no clue on the history behind the historic day.
The video has gone viral on social networks.
