    Kambdi Kalaai, Directed by ISH AMITOJ KAUR, 2006

    Billed as a tribute to the leading Singh Sabha ideologue Vir Singh, this is a reasonably well done independent film. That is assuming you accept the simplistic and flawed ultra-orthodox premise that a rejection of the Khalsa form is necessarily due to a lack of conviction rather than a passionate and informed alternate belief.

    When confronted with what is portrayed as religious infidelity on the part of their Sikh boyfriends, the two main female characters in the film reiterate the sentiment, 'If you can't be faithful to your religion, how can you be faithful to our marriage?'

    Religion, according to this film, is something immutable that is handed down from above as opposed to each individual's unique search for the truth.

    I don't know what you are trying to say here.Do you mean conviction is different from a passionate and informed belief?(I agree it is).Conviction is a better word and there is nothing flawed,simplistic or ultra orthodox about it.If things don't match your way of thinking it doesen't mean they are wrong--you should examine and allow for the possibility that you could be wrong.In any case why should a religion not be 'orthodox'(what is orthodox by the way--something that doesen't match your taste?)--would you accept it if it were modern(what is your definition of modern?).See,a religion's job is to tell the truth the way it is--independent of whether you like it or not or what adjective you choose to use for it.


    I think there's an element of truth here.
     
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!
