Talhan Gurudwara- Devotees Seeking Visas Offer Toy Planes

Shahid Baba Nihal Singh Gurudwara at Talhan ( Jalandhar ) i s celebrating its annual Mela from 19-06-9 to 21-06-o09 . The devotees , many from Doaba region ( area between rivers Sutlej and Beas rivers ) , have found a way of making an offering which is unique in the world.

Many Doaba Punjabis are very keen to go abroad in search of better livelihoods. But getting Visas to fly out is an elaborate process with an uncertain result. So devotees pray at the Gurudwara by purchasing a toy aeroplane model which is sold at toy stalls outside the Gurudwara. Along with these toy planes stickers of the airline of various destination countries are , also , sold. Intending immigrants acquire a toy plane with correct destination national airline sticker ( like British Airways for British Visa or Lufthansa for Germany etc. ). These planes are placed in the Gurudwara. Belief has it Visa comes in quickly and surely.
