Traditional Warriors


The festival of Vaisakhi the Skikh celebration of tradition, culture and heritage took place on Saturday.  Here they are performing Gatka a form of martial arts that originated in Northern India and is attributed to the god Shiva.  It's earliest devotees were regarded as fierce and brave warriors whose mere presence terrified their enemies.  Nowadays you are more likely to see Gatka performed at Sikh wedding.
