    Hi , I'm doing Art GCSE and the project at hand is about Self image, and after numerous ideas and limited time, I have chosen to approach the idea of culture. To be honest I dont know what the term is now , but I was born in England and am of Indian heritage, born in a Sikh family. Personally I don't agree with Sikhism or Punjabi culture in turn I am given the term 'coconut' (Brown on the outside white on the inside), I don't want to follow a religion and believe that I shouldnt embrace a Culture which hinders me from being who I want to be. So my project will be based on the 'conflict' of cultures and the things I should be embracing but dont really care for. I was wondering about other people views regarding this issue , especially teenagers as I would like to get everyone's view to help me with the project. Thanks.

    The google books are online interactive books. I find them to be excellent. You have to fiddle around a little and read through to find the sections you will need to use.

    The article above by Meeta Kaur has a lot to offer. i read it a while ago.

    In addition the sikhchic.com | The Art and Culture of the Diaspora web site has a search engine. The entire site is full of articles about Sikhs in the diaspora and the identity challenges they face every day. Good reading.
