    Apparently a set of armour inscribed with gurbani, that could have belonged to Dasmesh pita himself is being auctioned by Sothebys on the 9th April. I presume it was looted by the British after the Anglo-Sikh wars.




    It makes me wonder what other Sikh relics are hidden in private collections here?

    Also a rare painting of Guru Harkrishen is also being auctioned by another well known company (Christies)

    There is a similar thread posted yesterday, and today we hear that SGPC is petitioning the Court of St. James and the English government to intervene.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
