  UNITED SIKHS-Asia organized a 6 week camp which was called Change Agents Of the Future (CAOF). CAOF started on November 15th 2002.

It was started initially with four participants: Lakhbir Kaur, Sarveen Kaur, Manjeet Singh (United Kingdom) and Harpreet Kaur (Faridabad). Devina Kaur (Canada) and Ajit Singh (Pune) later joined them.

We at UNITED SIKHS-Asia are pleased to have them with us.

The first field trip took the Change Agents Of the Future (CAOF) participants to Indore (Madhya Pradesh). On the trip to Indore we stopped at the following historical / interesting places:

 
 
 
 
  • Bhudri Village (60 kms from Indore)18th Nov: Met Vanjara Sikhs there. There are 500-600 vanjaras, out of which 25-30 have converted to Sikhism due to the parchar done by Gurmat Parchar Committee (Indore.) CAOF participants interviewed the people there and tried to understand their problems. The Vanjara Sikhs explained the problems they faced in the management of the gurdwaras and what they thought was lacking in the parchar.
 
 
   
  From Indore the camp proceeded to Punjab on the 22nd Nov. Before settling down in Dam Dama Sahib the camp visited the following places:
 
   
  At Damdama Sahib the daily schedule at the camp keeps the participants fairly busy. The day starts with Asa Ki Vaar Kirtan in the darbar sahib at 6:00 AM, followed by ladi war katha of Sukhmani Sahib. Before joining the Kirtan the participants do their Nitnem banis.

After this everybody goes out for some exercise. Post breakfast, there is a 2 hr session of Jap ji Sahib. In this session Bhai Sahib Isher Singh ji explains the meanings of the bani. An explanation about the various metaphors used and the context of the various words is discussed.

The next session involves a discussion of the Gurmat Philosophy. We discuss things like why bani is guru and other related topics.

Gurbani - Santhiya (Learning to read bani with correct pronunciation) is done in the afternoon followed by an outdoor session. In the outdoor session some participants get involved in Gatka Practice while others play badminton etc.

In the evenings, Rehraas is read followed by a sikh history workshop. The day ends with Langar and Kirtan Sohila at 9:00 PM. The camp moved to Nanded (Sachkhand Sri Hazur Sahib) on 11th Dec' 02.
