ANI was told by a devotee who was lighting oil lamps, “Celebrated with awe and devotion for our master, Guru Nanak Dev’s 552nd Prakash Parv is being marked with the message of “Kirat Karo, Naam Japo,” “Vand Chako.” Sikhs are submitting to their guru in different parts of the nation. I wish everyone a happy holiday season.”

Mr. Singh also lauded the government’s move to abolish last year’s three unpopular agriculture legislation. Narendra Modi, India’s prime minister, declared on Friday that the three central agriculture regulations will be abolished.

A second devotee said “I’ve come from Kolkata, which is around 2,000 kilometers distant, to Darbar Sahib. The Kartarpur Sahib Corridor has been completed and is operational. The government’s decision to remove agriculture laws is a good thing. I prayed to god during Deepmala. Also, it’s a lot of fun to see these fireworks go off.”
