Director Punjabi Sahitya Academy Mr. C.R. Moudgil & S. Amarjeet Singh Kang KUK also spoke at the occasion.

Baba Sheikh Farid has great eminence in the Sikh History:
Guru Nanak Dev Ji, as it is also with the other contributing Gurus, whose Divine Hymns fill Guru Granth Sahib Ji, revealed and recorded Gurbani according to the incidents that took place around them, according to the question raised, and according to the message that was of need. Thus, the Guru never rarely revealed Gurbani in one place. Guru Nanak Dev Ji composed the first nine Sloks in Multan (in today’s Pakistan) at the grave of Baba Sheikh Farid. Every year, there are huge religious melas in the town where Sheikh Farid’s grave is. Once, when Guru Nanak Dev Ji was in Sultanpur, Bhai Mardana made a benti to GuruJi to take him to the mela. GuruJi said, ‘O Mardana, prepare for a journey, and if you accompany me, I’ll show you more melas in the world than just the one at Multan. There is a Gurudwara there today, about half a mile from the grave of Sheikh Farid, where Guru Nanak Dev Ji sat with Bhai Mardana.

There is the point in history where Asa-Di-Vaar begun to be composed – at the grave of Baba Sheikh Farid. As the questions were posed, Guru Nanak Dev Ji answered in hymns of the Divine, which now form the first 9 Sloks of Asa-D-Vaar.
