    Hi everyone! I am Haanji, a 21st Century Sikh, and a citizen of the world. This my very first thread posted for Sikh Philosophy Network. Each week I take a look back on the week that was and share some news briefs that caught my attention. Expect a new thread every week.

    Please comment on this thread and even add news briefs that intrigued you. Just keep it short, only one or two paragraphs, from an article with a link to the original article, so that forum members can read more.

    The thread will be looking at news categories such as Art, Music, Cinema, Books, Politics, Religion, People in History, Punjab, Society, and even Crazy News. The articles won’t fit exactly with SPN sub-forums, but a Sikh who is watching our complicated and changing world should find them interesting nonetheless.

    Eventually Haanji plans to have some thread contests too! Best Video, Best Humor, Best Cartoon - things like that.

    Let's roll!

    Haanjio ji

    You scared me there. I don't think I have ever run into you before this morning. Thanks for starting a news digest. Sometimes alternative articles can be quite cool.

    Haanji is delayed with future installments. He blacked out on the job last Wednesday and spent 2 days in the hospital with a fractured skull. Naturally he needed some time to recuperate. He will be back as soon as he can do it. Thanks for the feedback.
