Happy Vaisakhi

I went for a walk with my friends little boy who we commonly know as Pobbins yesterday. We weren’t expecting to be enveloped in the crowds of Southampton’s Sikh community who were celebrating Vaisakhi. An ancient northern Indian harvest festival that also celebrates the ‘oneness of all’ within the Sikh tradition; drummers, dancers, singers and a holy man swept us along the streets proffering delicious samosas and some of the warmest of smiles I have met since being back in the UK.
