    30 Minutes: Punjab youths' exodus from home

    For young men in Punjab, nothing is as appealing than an opportunity go to a developed country. For many, going abroad means an opportunity to earn more money and live a better life. Every year close to 50,000 people leave Punjab to go to a foreign country. Till recently, Australia was the preferred destination. Reason: Almost anyone could get a visa. And after your studies, permanent residency and then citizenship was almost certain. And although the recent attacks in countries like Australia has brought down the total number of migrants to 4,000, the desire to go abroad remains a big goal.

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!
