    Gyani ji,

    Guru Fateh.

    Well said, as usual.

    It is sad to notice that we have created these white elephants with golden domes all over and ignored the message of Gurbani to help the true helpers like United Sikhs and others. White elephants need a lot of money for maintenance.

    I have heard that the new HQ of SGPC is marbled, air conditioned and have all the amenities to be marveled about, all in the competition with the golden domes. Money wasted in the name of self centeredness and ego. Nothing more.

    I wish Maharaja Ranjit Singh had envisioned the mals of the loots which turned the Darbar Sahib into Golden Temple and with the result, golden domes everywhere. The latest wonder of the world is the Gurdwara in Dubai which leaves all the visitors in awe but sadly, hiding the stark reality about the deplorable living conditions of the majority of the workers, many of them Sikhs from Punjab who sold their lands for the dream of building castles in the land of sand.

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!
