    University of Waterloo Sikh Student Association celebrated the Canada Day Turban Way by crowning students and staff with red and white turbans. Fact sheets on Sikh philosophy and the importance of Turbans were distributed and a presentation depicting the Sikh values of equality, justice and community and how they match with Canadian values was shown. A video of the celebration can be seen at

    It is a wonderful gesture. We should have the same first in the Sikh neighbourhoods around the world for the Sikhs themselves to start using turbans.

    Thanks a lot. We were inspired by your suggestion. As such, in association with local Sangat, the Sikhs Student Association, University of Waterloo, organized a Dastar parade in the Kitchener Gurudwara Sahib during the annual Sport's day, today, Aug. 11. About 100 kids aging from 2 years to 18 years took part. First they crowned themselves with the Guru's gift and then took part in a parade around the ground. Enjoy the first set of pictures.

    This is a beautiful display. I wish there were some way to flash it on the home page. Our spot can do only 1 pic at a time.

    But thank you!
     
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!
