    Here is a classic example of how our "communications" can get hilarious..

    At a University, the President called his VP and told him:
    Next Thursday, Hailley's Comet will be passign over this area. This is an event which occurs once every 75 years. Call the Division Heads and have them Assemble the Professors and students on the University Athletic Field, and explain this unique phenomenon to them. IF it rains, then cancel the event, and have everybody meet in the gym and be shown a film about this comet.

    The VP sent the following Memo to the Division Heads:
    BY order of the President, next Thursday, hailley's Comet will appear over the Athletic Field. If it rains, then cancel all classes and report to the GYM with your professors and students, where you will be shown a film, a phenomenal event which occurs only once every 75 yaers.

    The Divison Heads memo to the professors:
    BY order of the Phenomenal President, next Thursday hailley's Comet will appear in the GYM. In case of rain over the Athletic Field, the President will give another order, something which occurs only once every 75 years.

    Professors memo to students:
    Next Thursday the President will appear in our GYM with hailley's Comet, something which occurs once every 75 years. If it rains, the President will cancel the Comet, and order us all out to our phenomenal athletic field.

    Student writing home to his parents..
    When it rains next Thursday over the school Athletic field, the Phenomenal 75 year old President will cancel all classes and will appear before the whole school assembled in the Gym, accompanied by Bill Hailley and the Comets..

    Can we really trust what we say will filter down correctly ????

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!
