    [​IMG]The Ashram of the late Harbhajan Singh Yogi in Los Angeles, where Nishan Sahib flies below the Star and Spangle banner, something of a confused mixture of two cultures and a symbolism which does represent a belaboured effort at enmeshing two cultures while at the same time a not very thought out action as far as representation of the Sikh banner is concerned. Many Sikh bodies have achieved an enmeshing with the American values in a more balanced and appreciable manner. The recent debate about the Sikh banner of Nishan Sahib at the Lodi gurdwara is likely to remind us of several such aberrations which aren’t great examples to be quoted as precedent.

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!
