Vaisakhi In The Media 2016


This year Vaisakhi has been and gone but there had been an unbelievable amount of coverage world-wide regarding the Birth of the Khalsa.  I have even struggled to keep up with the amount of press coverage everyone has been sending in!

Here is a list of all the media outlets that have covered Vaisakhi this year and a huge thank you to everyone who sent in links!
