By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 09th June:- सद्गुरु कबीर जी लगभग 700 वर्ष पूर्व जो कुछ भी लिख गए वह सब आज भी बेहद प्रासंगिक है। यहां तक कि उनकी इतने वर्ष पूर्व कहीं बातें आज इतनी सच होतीं हुईं हम देख रहे हैं जैसे कि उन्होंने अपनी एक रचना में लिखा था कि एक समय ऐसा आएगा जब मांस-मदिरा की दुकानों पर जमघट लगेगा और दूध बेचने के लिए घर-घर जाना पड़ेगा। ऐसा लगता है मानो वे कवि ना होकर कोई ज्योतिषी हों। ये उद्गार आज यहां कॉलोनी नं. 4 में सद्गुरु भगवान कबीर मंदिर कमेटी द्वारा आयोजित कबीर प्रकटोत्सव समारोह में उपस्थित जनता को सम्बोधित करते हुए स्थानीय कांग्रेस के महासचिव शशिशंकर तिवारी ने व्यक्त किए। उन्होंने मंदिर में माथा भी टेका। इस मौके पर कमेटी के प्रधान कृष्णा, राजकुमार काला, संतलाल, ओमबीर, सुभाष कुमार आदि पदाधिकारियों ने शशिशंकर तिवारी तथा नगर निगम पार्षद शीला फूलसिंह एवं मनोज कुमार आदि को सम्मानित किया। इससे पहले यहाँ  भगवान कबीर की शोभा यात्रा भी निकाली गई भजन-कीर्तन किया गया तथा भंडारा भी लगाया गया।
