OLD COTTONIAN Sodhi Vikram Singh – Sri Anandpur Sahib Wale – receiving and honouring the Archbishop of Canterbury

Sodhi Vikram Singh- Sri Anandpur Sahib Wale receiving and honouring the Archbishop of Canterbury who is the Head of the Church of England-Protestant Church at the Darbar Sahib Complex of Harmandir Sahib. He is on a visit to celebrate the 550 years birth celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Sending out a strong global message of the relevance of interfaith dialogue and universal brotherhood. Sarbat da Bhalla as enunciated by Baba Nanak and the central message of the Sikh Faith, in these times of suspicion and global conflict…..

Honouring his holiness and explaining key tenants of the Sikh Faith prior to his visit to Darbar with the Jathedar Akal Takhat Sahib at the information centre, Harminder Sahib.

Beautiful Emotional Tonic to the Heart and Soul. Well done! you perform these extraordinary gestures with selfless commitment for the love of all.

Cottonian Polo Team Plays in Hawaii USA

As part of the celebrations  to commemorate the 40th year of the class of ’71 passing out of BCS, I led my polo team called the ‘Cottonian Polo Team’ to play an Invitational International Polo tournament in Hawaii, USA from 25 Aug to 5 Sept, 2011. The final match played on Sunday 4th Sept was won by the ‘Cottonian Polo Team’ against the local favorites the  ‘Hawaii Polo Club Team’ by a nail biting 9-8 goal score line. The match was keenly contested by both teams & played in a fast paced encounter on the beautiful Hawaii Polo Ground located on the beach of the famous North Shore of Oahu in Honolulu, Hawaii. This match was the Grand Finale event of the Hawaii Polo season & was watched by a record crowd of over 3,000 spectators, enjoying the polo, after polo party, a sky diving display & the festive atmosphere. I will be sending pictures of the match later, to be posted here.

Best Regards
Vikram Sodhi [C 62-71]
