    How agonising it is to find people making donations at religious places for the sake of gaining fame and reputation. The essence of the donation is lost and it makes a mockery of the noble institutions of "Daan" and "Daswandh" which our Gurus started for the welfare of the community.

    An old man on entering the gurudwara starts searching for something. On being asked, he says that he is searching for his name on the marble slabs, which was promised to him last year when he donated Rs 2100.

    One wonders as to whether people go to Gurudwara's in search of their own name or the Name of God.

    Now , see how sikhs , Marod (twist) their Naks (Nose) .
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!
