    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.

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!
