Here is my Pepeha

Here is my Pepeha

Kia Ora tatou, tena tatou katoa

Greetings All

I whanau mai ahau, i whakatipuhia hoki ahau ki Punjab - he whenua e rima nga awa

Ko Sutluj, ko Beas, ko Ravi, ko Jhelum me Chenab ngā awa

I was born and brought up in Punjab – a land of 5 Rivers (Sutluj, Beas, Ravi, Jhelum and Chenab)

(Note: ‘Punj’ means 5 and ‘ab’ means river in punjabi. So ‘Punjab’ means land of 5 rivers)

Nō te hāhi haamoriraa sikh ahau

Ka tukuna ōku karakia ki a Guru Granth Sahib ji, tō matou Guru mutunga kore.

I belong to the Sikh religion, and we worship Guru Granth Sahib ji as our Eternal Guru.

He kaiārahi i a maatau ki te noho i te koiora me te whakaaro kia tapatahi nga taangata katoa.

It guides us in living the life of truth and to consider everyone as equal.

Mōku, ko Shri Darbar Sahib i Amritsar toku waka, toku moana, me toku marae

I consider Shri Darbar Sahib (pilgrimage place) in Amritsar (location) as my waka, sea and place

Ā, ko Shri Hemkund Sahib i nga Hamalayas hei maunga mōku

And, Shri Hemkund Sahib in the Himalayas as my Mountain.

I tenei wa, he Kaitiaki putea ahau mo Te Kaunihera ā Takiwā o Waikato

At present, I am working as Accountant at WDC

Kei Taupiri ahau e noho ana i tēnei wā - ka kite ahau i te maunga Taupiri me te awa o Waikato e rere ana.

And, residing in Taupiri – where the Taupiri mountain is and where the Waikato river flows.

Ko Harsh Singh Garcha toku ingoa

Harsh Singh Garcha is my name

E mihi ana ki a tatou katoa, kua hui mai nei i runga

Kia pai te ra!

Mauri Ora, tena tatou katoa

Congratulations to all of us, who have gathered here

Have a nice day!

Greetings all
