Sikh followers all over the world are celebrating the 550th  birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of the religion. Revellers are remembering the Sikh Guru’s teachings of working and praying hard on this occasion with wishes of prosperity and happiness. Among revellers, prominent personalities have also tweeted extending their warm wishes for the festival.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter to greet people for the occasion and encouraged them to work towards an inclusive and harmonious society. President Ram Nath Kovind also tweeted his wishes on the occasion, asking people to build a society based on his teachings of equality, compassion and social amity.

Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis also took to micro-blogging site Twitter to send his wishes on the occasion.

Ahead of the festival, India and Pakistan last week signed the agreement on the Kartarpur Corridor that will allow Indian pilgrims to undertake visa-free visit to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, the shrine of the Sikh religion's founder Guru Nanak Dev in Pakistan, notwithstanding a chill in bilateral ties over Kashmir. The agreement will allow 5,000 Indian pilgrims daily to visit Gurdwara Darbar Sahib where Guru Nanak spent last 18 years of his life.
