    Christian Hymns And Sikh Doctorine

    Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh Sangat ji, My gurmukhi is coming along well, but I'm left with a longing. I can sing and say kirtan and shabads well enough for the length of time I've been learning, but at this point I do not know enough Punjabi (to say nothing of any of the other...

    Georgia On My Mind by T. SHER SINGH Every time I hear the song “Georgia On My Mind,” it stills my mind and soothes the soul. There are scores of classic renditions, but my favourite ones that I return to regularly are the soulful rendition by Ray Charles and the languid version by Willie...
