This is a beautiful picture of Mahan Kirin Kaur and Guru Amrit Hari Kaur sitting next to the window on the second floor of Harmandir sahib overlooking the entry walkway. The eyes of Guru Amrit Hari (the baby) are so innocent and pierce into you. The meditative and motherly Mahan Kirin feels so pure. This picture was from 1994 when I was living in Amritsar for a year after I graduated high school.

    How much punjabi did you pick up in high school or afterwards? I’m not implying anything (being Sikh and speaking modern Punjabi are different things), I’m just curious.

  3. I learnt to read and write punjabi in school. However our teacher wasn’t very good so we didn’t learn much conversational punjabi.

    Our school was in U.P. which is primarily Hindi speaking, so naturally I learnt to speak in Hindi. I speak ok, but not that great. I don’t get much practice anymore.

    I’ve been learning Punjabi though recently. :) Dr. Balkar Singh who lives here has been teaching classes. It’s been interesting switching from Hindo to Punjabi and learning the differences.

  5. This picture reminds me of Mata Gujri Ji with the younger Sahibzadas. It is true that mothers are the one who can make or mar the future of the child. This picture is an example of a mother who has shown her child a path, which will guide her to ultimate happiness & bliss. May GOD bless them both.

    Just to clarify, Mahan Kirin is not the mother of Guru Amrit Hari Kaur, she just happens to be sitting with her. It would probably embarrass her if she read this post, but I’m going to say it anyway. I saw Guru Amrit Hari Kaur in June and I couldn’t believe how much she has grown up. She must be a teenager now, but I can still remember when she was just a baby in Española.

  8. That is such a lovely picture. It is so innocent.
