Body: 

I missed out on National Chicken Wing Day on Wednesday. The very same day came and almost went before I found out it was also National Lasagna Day. So much opportunity for the festive celebration of food was missed. If people or more likely, trade associations, are going to go to the trouble to make up imaginary holidays, they ought to at least tell us about them. It was also National Lipstick Day, and even as a non-user of lipstick, chicken wings and lipstick sounds like a combination directly from the island of bad ideas. Every day seems to be National Something or Other Day and if a Natio...

Body: 

The singing of hymns from the Guru Granth Sahib (kirtan) is an intrinsic part of the Sikh faith. Be it holy days, a birth, a death, a wedding, the Sikh holy book has appropriate "shabads" for all occasions. "Kalyug mein kirtan pardhana" (Guru Arjan Dev - Raag Maru) It is not just in "Kalyug" that kirtan helps attain salvation.

Bhaktas, Sufi saints and even seats of Sanatan Dharam like Ayodhya, Mathura and Kashi h...
