Jamshedpur, Sept. 19: The Shavak Nanavati Technical Institute (SNTI) became a “mini-Punjab†as Sikh youths from various parts of Jharkhand and neighbouring states participated for the zonal audition round of “Mr Singh Internationalâ€, a fashion contest, held this evening.

Organised by the “Akal Purukh Ki Faujâ€, an international Sikh organisation, headquartered in Amritsar, the contest saw around 50 youths participating from Jharkhand, Orissa, Bihar and West Bengal. They were all between 18-30 years of age.

The eligibility criteria for the contestants were that they should strictly follow Sikh traditions.

Attired in sherwanis, suits or casuals and wearing the traditional turban, the participants set the ramp on fire.

“This event was a first of its kind organised in the steel city. Never before had a contest for Sikh youths been organised here. The event drew a good response. We look forward to organising similar programmes in future,†said Bhupinder Singh, an official of the Akal Purukh Ki Fauj.

The zonal audition kicked off with a written round, in which questions pertaining to Sikh religion were asked.

This was followed by the second round in which the participants were required to sashay down the ramp.

In the last round, participants performed according to their strengths.

There were seven judges for the contest — three from Amritsar and four local. The organisers informed that 25 contestants were shortlisted after the written round.

At the end of the final round, five youths were chosen.

These youths will get a chance to take part in the finals of the contest, slated to be held in Amritsar on October 19.

The officials revealed that similar auditions are being organised in various parts of the country including Mumbai, Pune and Kanpur.

The country has been divided into nine zones. Five contestants from each zone will be shortlisted for the mega-finals.

According to officials, the auditions for the fashion contest will also taking place in Canada, Malaysia, UK, USA and Thailand.

“The event was simply exhilarating. The organisation should be lauded for conducting such an event. It is an attempt to showcase the rich Sikh traditions,†said Shailendra Singh, president of Central Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee and one of the judges for the event.
