Rising from the dust

The highlight of Hola Mohalla are these warriors, barefoot they showcase such flawless control and command.
Hola Mohalla is a weeklong Sikh Festival which revolves around daytime demonstrations of Gatka, the Sikh martial art, and other military sports. Evening events include Sikh worship services and kirtan, the singing of hymns selected from Guru Granth Sahib. The grand finale at the end of the week is a martial arts and nagar kirtan parade. The festival usually takes place mid-March beginning on the first day of Chet, which is the start of the Sikh New Year according to the Nanakshahi calendar.
In Punjab, Hola Mahalla is traditionally held annually in the city of Anandpur and is attended by Sikhs from all over India who throng to view the dashing feats of the Nihang warrior sect.
