If Brar Had Been Assassinated

I do not wish death to Brar, although I know that such people are always a burden on Mother Earth. I would not lift a finger to kill him, even if I could, just as I would not lift my little finger to save him if that would.

Delhi of the Sikhs

Though I grew up in India, I never lived in Delhi or Mumbai. When people asked about my impressions of them, my dismissive response was that Bombay was a plastic town – a celluloid reality like Las Vegas – while Delhi had a sense of history, much like my own hometown of New York.

Running Along

I often compare the march of Sikhi to a marathon. Thousands enter the race. Some will complete the distance in record time while others will finish but never win a medal. Many more may never finish the race. Some runners will be gold medalists, for they look and live as Sikhs. But many will be limping across the finish line, for they are deficient in either their meeri or their peeri.

The Sikh Education Fund

We need to go beyond the existing approaches of advocacy in order to achieve positions of influence and power. By so doing, Sikhs can bring about recognition for their community.

Beware the Trojan Horse

While most non-Sikh visitors visiting gurdwaras will have come out of a genuine sense of curiosity to learn more about Sikhs and their religion, or to express sympathy and solidarity with Sikhs as we mourn, there will also be another type of visitor to our gurdwaras, one with an entirely different agenda.
