India leaves the entire world awestruck with its ability to be home to a number of different cultures and religions and imbibe them peacefully. During a number of occasions, people of various castes and communities could be seen gathered under one roof as a mark of brotherhood and bonhomie among them. A similar scene was witnessed in the Poonch area of Jammu and Kashmir where people of different religious communities came together to be a part of Baisakhi celebrations at Nangali Sahib Gurudwara. Devotees of all faiths gathered at this Gurudwara in Poonch and offered their prayers to mark the auspicious occasion.
