One million Twitter followers social activist and traveller Harjinder Singh Kukreja flies off with family to snowfall in London to enjoy Christmas, explore the UK and appreciate Sikh presence there.
God is happy as snow falls in London paving the way for a White Christmas to welcome Sikh social media activist with a million Twitter followers and globe trotter Harjinder Singh Kukreja, wife Harkirat Kaur and toddlers Rehras Singh and Aad Sach Singh on their maiden trip to the United Kingdom.
In its first ever campaign to popularise London and Birmingham as amazing family destinations, Visit Britain is sponsoring the family trip, hoping to enlist many more Punjabis to enjoy their last winter days of the year in the UK. With air connectivity between Amritsar, London and Birmingham, likely to become a reality soon, it should not come as a surprise if Punjabis start celebrating their honeymoons, anniversaries and the New Year eve in the UK in the years to come.
On the eve of the trip meant to enjoy Christmas, explore London and Birmingham as tourist destinations, to meet Punjabis and Sikhs who have made it big in the UK and to generally understand how Sikhs made Britain their home over the century, businessman-chocolatier from Ludhiana -Harjinder Singh Kukreja enjoyed a high tea evening with Mr. Andrew Ayre -the Deputy High Commissioner of the British Deputy High Commission Chandigarh.
“We are happy promoting British tourism to Punjabis and I hope that with Harjinder Singh Kukreja’s trip, there will be more tourists to the UK than ever before.”
The Great Britain cake was the darling of the evening and the icing on the cake was the Deputy High Commissioner’s recommendation to Harjinder Singh Kukreja to visit and enjoy Cadbury’s sweet and bitter chocolates during his stay. The excitement of the family was palpable and so was the enthusiasm of the High Commissioner and the Visit Britain officials.
Deputy High Commissioner Andrew Ayre was ecstatic about Punjabi hospitality and hopes to reciprocate the same for Harjinder Singh Kukreja and other travellers in the UK. Speaking to World Sikh News he said, “We are happy promoting British tourism to Punjabis and I hope that with Harjinder Singh Kukreja’s trip, there will be more tourists to the UK than ever before.”
“God willing, this is the beginning of a new phase of spreading cheer, goodness and peace through my social media reach for my family, friends and the world at large.”
The lively tête-à-tête between the two, exploring the huge possibilities of Britain as a family tourist destination in winter and not just in summer as is usually thought of, gave a foretaste of what was in the offing for Harjinder Singh Kukreja and his family. It was a toast to Great Britain. The editor of the World Sikh News was present on the occasion. Readers are invited to spare a few moments and view the video of the conversation.
Dashing and debonair Harjinder Singh Kukreja said, “God willing, this is the beginning of a new phase of spreading cheer, goodness and peace through my social media reach for my family, friends and the world at large.”
