Bhai Pinderpal Singh Ji, the
charismatic Gursikh kathavachak was born in
the Village of Tharva Majra, District Karnal, in
the state of Haryana, India. His ancestors came
from the Village of Choodkan in the District of
Sheikhpura, now in Pakistan. This is where the
the religious site of Sacha Sauda of Guru Nanak
Dev Ji is located. His family moved to India
after the separation of India and Pakistan.
He was born in July 1966. His father's name
is Sardar Hardial Singh and his mother is Balbir
Kaur. Bhai Sahib is married and lives with his
wife and children together with his parents in
Urban Colony, Ludhiana, Punjab, India. He
received his initial education at his village
after which he studied at the Gurmat Missionary
Collage in Ropar, Punjab, India.
He has travelled extensively throughout India
and the rest of the world spreading the message
of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. During his visits to
the US, audio recordings of his katha on various
banis were done and uploaded by sevaks to
various sites. He is the "anchor"
kathavachak at Gurdwara Kalgidhar Sahib for many
The appeal, charm and novelty of his katha
lies, amongst other things, in is his strict
adherence to Gurbani, Bhai Gurdas Ji's and Bhai
Nand Lal Ji's writings. The illustrations and
examples that he provides during the course of
his katha are from Gurbani and not "external"
He is a model of Sikhi lifestyle as he lives
his life in a very simple, unassuming and humble
way. He effectively lives what he preaches and
it is for this reason that he has become a great
role model for the Sikh youth of today. He is
always conciliatory in his approach and believes
in convincing others through discussion rather
than applying any kind of force.
The magic and conviction of his katha lies in
the deep passion and love with which he speaks.
He quotes the Gurbani extensively during the
course of his katha and backs up
everything he says with Gurbani. He attributes
his success as a kathavachak entirely to
Unlike many other kathavachaks, he is always
positive in his approach and does not use the
stage at the Gurdwaras to be critical of
individuals, committees or issues. Bhai sahib
makes it a point to stay above petty
political frays and never involves himself in
the local politics of any city or town that he
visits. Bhai Sahib is one of the most if not the
most inspirational an motivational Sikh
preachers around at present.
Bhai Sahib's katha is telcast daily in the
Punjab by ETC Punjbai channel. Bhai Sahib is
also been appointed to do the katcha duty at
Gurdwara Manji sahib in Amritsar, a task
preciously performed by the laste Sant Singh
Maskeen. Whenever he is at home in Ludhiana he
does katha every morning at Gurdwara Kalgidhar
Sahib. He has been doing that for many years now
and is held in very high regard and is very well
respected by the sangat there.
