RAHA, April 9 � The 394th birth anniversary of Guru Teg Bahadur, the ninth Sikh guru and one of the most prominent leaders in Sikh history who visited Assam in 1670 in the company of Raja Ram Singh of Amber, who was sent by Aurangzeb to quell a rebellion by Ahom chief Chakradhwaj Singha, is being observed as Prakash Utsav at the historic Gurdwara-Mataji, constructed in 1820 at Chaparmukh, with a 17-day programme from April 2 to April 18.

A large number of devotees from all over the State and other north-eastern States have converged on the Gurdwara-Mataji at Chaparmukh to celebrate the anniversary with great aplomb and fervour.

The �Akhanda Paath� of the Holy Guru Granth Sahib started at 9 am on April 2. It will continue till April 18. On April 17, a religious procession, Nagar-Kirtan, will be taken out in which a large number of Sikh devotees are likely to take part.

The Prabandhak Committee of Gurdwara-Mataji has also arranged a religious discourse (�diwan�) on the Gurdwara premises on April 18 where Ranjit Singh Birdi, GM, NF Railway, and PP Singh, ADG, Assam Police, will be the chief guests. Dr Biren Gohain, retired IAS officer, and Nirmal Singh, Chief Engineer, NF Railway, will also attend the session as distinguish guests. Katha, kabita, bhajan and sabad will be recited by devotees on the occasion. The Guruka Langar will serve the devotees on all days of the celebration.

It may be mentioned here that Gurdwara-Mataji was constructed in 1820 in memory of Mataji, wife of Chaitanya Singh, the commander of Maharaja Ranjit Singh who died fighting valiantly at Hadira Chauki with Mughals while supporting Ahom king Chandrakanta Singha. Their defeat and the death of many soldiers sent the survivors into hiding. The revered Mataji, along with some trusted men, finally settled at Chaparmukh.
