    The Khanda Contest


    The Khanda is the corporate logo, if you will, of the collective Sikh community around the globe. It follows Sikh presence no matter where we go, what we do ...
    It adorns our gurdwaras, our homes and workplaces, our literature, our art and artifacts, our jewelry, our cars - even the T-shirts we wear at play or leisure!
    Its origin remains unknown. Many theories abound, but good and proper research on the subject is yet to be carried out by our academics.
    In the meantime, the icon has grown in our daily lives. It actually appears more frequently and pervasively today than ever before in our five centuries-long history.
    We think it is time to let our creative energies, through our artists and designers and dreamers, to go at it and formulate some artistic renditions of the Khanda by capturing, in their unique and respective ways, what the symbol means to each ... what each one sees in it, what it signifies to each one in his/her life.
    Hence, this contest.

    We invite submissions from all of you across the globe - young and old, Sikh and non-Sikh, professional artists and amateurs, or even those who've hitherto never drawn a thing - of your personal graphic interpretations of this historical motif which is so central to our Sikhi.
