    One 28th March, 2014, our dear beloved spnadmin ji (Narayanjot Kaur) passed away, after a true warrior's battle with cancer.

    Whilst we take a moment in our day to remember her, also see if you can spare a moment to read this article about Talking With Someone Who Has Cancer. We at SPN know she would be honoured to serve fellow cancer-sufferers in this way.

    Yes, Cancer patients are like warriors. They have to fight a big battle facing all odds. I know it first hand, as I have one in my family, my wife, Gurpreet Kaur who dedicated herself to doing Raag based Gurbani Sangeet. She has sung Gurbani in practically all the Raags mentioned in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji. For the past one year she is fighting the toughest battle of her life in the form of a Brain Tumour, Glioblastoma Multiformae.

    Some interesting things about NK ji.

    She eloped with Jim when they were not quite young. The details are very interesting how that happened.

    She never had a driver's licence hence Jim had to take her everywhere- Chemo and all.She was always in chardi kala even through her not so good times but she never let them steal her eternal optimism.

    She was a tireless worker, got her college's accreditation for the Psychology department approved after working day and night for two years beside looking after us at SPN.

    Antonia, una bella italiana, fell in love with Sikhi, learnt Gurmukhi and Sikhi through Missionary College Ludhiana, then became Narayanjot Kaur. It is interesting to notice how each of us find peace in life. NK who had Phd was looking for peace and ended up at the Guru's door which she did not leave till her last breath. She was a better Sikh than many of us here who had the fortune to know her a bit.

    The most interesting thing is that I always feel her presence here which puts smile on my face when I open SPN everyday.

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!
