Developed by Amrit Pal Singh, this global online platform will provide information on vacancies for granthis, ragis, pathis, langris, sewadars etc. in gurdwaras across the globe and is conceptualised on the lines of employment websites that list job opportunities for corporate executives.

Over 1,800 gurdwaras in the world are listed on the portal and more than 700 profiles of trained and experienced staff looking for jobs in gurdwaras worldwide have been registered, details of which can be seen by clicking the link below:


When asked what prompted Amrit Pal Singh to develop the portal, he said that while working abroad, he had encountered several trained ragis, katha vachaks and pathis who were cheated by agents who promised them jobs in gurdwaras overseas, but actually found that there were no jobs once they went abroad. They were forced to stay there illegally and had undergone many hardships. They were cheated by agents back home for huge sums of money under the pretext of getting jobs. They had to take up odd jobs overseas, were under constant stress and had to prolong their stay in the hope of recovering the money they had spent.

Stating that the website would provide services free of cost, Amrit Pal Singh said numerous gurdwaras all over the world always require capable and efficient staff like ragis, pathis, granthis, langri, sewadar, Katha vachak, computer operators, librarian, cashier, supervisor, managers etc.

"However, there are a large number of trained and talented people who want to serve in overseas gurdwaras but are unaware of the vacancies and the process for applying. So this portal will provide gurdwara managements worldwide the platform to choose competent staff, as per their criteria from the list of resumes posted by job seekers and to post job vacancies. Hence, this website will serve as a boon for everyone," added Amrit Pal Singh.

To connect with gurdwaras worldwide, click on the option "Add Gurdwara" on the website where you will be required to add your city's gurdwara details.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
