Paris Museum Has Medals Dedicated to Guru Gobind Singh Ji and Khalsa Army

“I recently visited the national museum of honors and Knightly orders in Paris which houses France’s honors, medals, decorations & knightly orders. But there is also a section for foreign orders. And I wouldn’t hesitate to admit that my eyes welled up when I saw military medals dedicated to Guru Gobind Singh ji(the 10th Sikh Guru) and the Army of the ‘Khalsa’ that he created. There was also a medal dedicated to Maharaja Bhupinder Singh from the princely state of Patiala. The inscriptions on to them being in Punjabi, I was all the more touched and exhilarated. It was a very proud & heart-warming moment, especially because I was not expecting such a homely encounter thousands of miles away from home!! I’m really thankful to the museum authority for this honor, and I would never forget my visit to this museum ” Via Prabhjot Singh
