    This video was forwarded by Mai Harinder Kaur ji. Thank you Mai ji for bringing this to my attention.

    I think it is brilliant and very pertinent to todays increasing multicultural world. We all carry stereotypes that we should always be challenging. We need to approach modern media with some skepticism and be responsible for our learning and attitudes.

    Thank you for posting this. I think what she is saying is important. Not to mention she's a really good speaker and interesting, too.

    I wonder how many people believe a single story about us Sikhs.

    And I wonder how many people we believe a single story about.
