The Sikh community marked this significant day with a day-long program at the Haflong Gurdwara. The festivities kicked off with prayers, Kirtan, and ardas, drawing members from the Sikh and other communities to the Gurdwara for the celebratory event. The occasion was not only marked by spiritual activities but also included the provision of guru ka langar (free kitchen) for all attendees.

The Sikh religion revolves around the anniversaries of the 10 Sikh Gurus, who played a pivotal role in shaping Sikh beliefs. Gurpurabs, or Gurpurbs, which commemorate the birthdays of these Gurus, are occasions for celebration and prayer for Sikhs globally. Sri Guru Nanak Devji, the founder of Sikhism, was born on April 15, 1469, in Rai-Bhoi-di Talwandi, presently located in the Shekhupura District of Pakistan, known today as Nankana Sahib.

On this auspicious occasion, Nirmal Singh, secretary of Sri Gurdwara Singh Sabha Haflong, along with the Sikh community in Haflong, extended their warm wishes and messages of peace, brotherhood, and prosperity to all communities and tribes residing in the Dima Hasao district. The presence of a large number of people from various communities added to the joyous atmosphere of the celebration.
