  1. Played in India in 2007 for an Indian culture, played in London Trafalgar square for an Indian activity and finally played in Kenya for an Indian Culture.
    sorry you have never played there with a bag pipe, I AM A LOOSER and I am sorry that I commented on your blog. I love being a looser

  2. I do not agree with Kishor’s comment. The blog is simply talking about ‘Swaminarayangadi pipe band’ generally.The writer has at no point implied that he played at those places. He has just given a general historiological background on a pipe band, which according to me is not illegal.

    So let’s stop getting defensive!!!!

  3. This blog distinctly highlights the evolution and the amazing charitable work carried out by Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band and makes no comments about the role of the me (the Author) in any of the events mentioned in the blog, and is not biased in anyway whatsoever. The blog is supported or based on the information published on the official Swaminarayan Gadi website. Please read the blog carefully before commenting.
