Three full days of prayer at the Sikh Temple in Woolgoolga followed by a big party on the final night in Coffs Harbour. It was Nihal’s first birthday.
When Harvey, Nihal’s dad, rang me and asked me to be a part of this event, I was truly delighted. I had often driven past the magnificent Sikh Temple, sitting majestically on top a hill in Woolgoolga, and want to go in. I was able to join in the celebrations and blessings that were being bestowed upon little Nihal – by documenting just a small part of some of the prayer – and then join them for a feast! This place is truly amazing – the beautiful people, the food, the colours and the grand temple. It is also wonderful to see such a tight community and close family connection.
