    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.

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!
