Maybe Harisimrat Kaur would be a good compromise candidate as CM of Punjab. What do you think Kanwardeep Singh ji?
Yes She can become good CM of Punjab but personally I prefer her to do What She is doing now and that is taking the cause of sikhs and Punjab to center.She regularly Attend parliement and speak like a lioness.Her communication skills are excellent.Unfortunately majority of Akali leaders of all parties are of rural background and lack communication skills.Harsimrat also speak very well in English and because of this English News channles Like times now and CNN IBN now regularly invite her in there prime time shows.She regularly mention contribuition of sikhs as farmers and amount of foodgrain Punjab produce and also express failure of central Govt for not
having appropriate storage space.We should remember That in democracy power flows through media.So What she is doing is excellent


I had similar hopes with Navjot singh sidhu but he turned out be a big dissappointment

Sikh Scholar Niki Kaur Honoured

http://www.sikhnugget.com/2010/12/sikh-scholar-nikky-guninder-kaur.html


The department of historical studies of Punjabi University, bestowed a fellowship on Nikki Guninder Kaur Singh, chair and crawford family, professor of the department of religious study, Colby College Waterville, USA.

Guninder’s father, Harbans Singh, had earlier taught at the same university in the department of religious studies.

She also presented a lecture on the relevance of Guru Granth Sahib in the modern society at the university. She said historical scriptures were valuable in today’s society. Stressing on the fact that all religions taught humanity, Guninder said Guru Granth Sahib, Bhagwad Gita, Bible, Quran and Buddhism taught the same thing in different dialects.

According to her, they taught the universal truth of life. “All these scriptures change our values and how we look at everything. It is important to interpret them,” she said.

She said Sikhism was a powerful medium of teaching right things in life and her main focus was to bridge the gap between Indians and Americans. Kaur said many Americans were interested in Sikhsim. “I am working to translate Sikh religious works into English,” she said.

Guninder stressed on the five themes that had vital contemporary relevance, Historical Reality (Guru Granth Ji Manio Pargat Guran Ki Deh), the infinite one (ikk onkar), egalitarian ethics (khatri Brahman sud vais updes cahu varna ko sajha), a magical planetarium: worlds beyond worlds (patala patal lakh agasa agas), a feminist text: the divine is both male and female (ape purakh ape hi nar).

Chief guest at the function, former MP Tarlochan Singh, lauded the work done by late Prof Harbans.

Dr. Jasdeep Kaur Joins NASA's Mission Mars

by GAUTAM DHEER


Dr Jasdeep Kaur, a dentist from Kapurthala district in Punjab, is all set to be part of NASA's Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) Mission 100B as its Health and Safety Officer.

The 27-year-old Jasdeep Kaur will also double up as a biologist in Grand Junction, Colorado, U.S.A., where the mission is underway. She is part of the six-member crew of the Europe Space Agency.

A Mars-like atmosphere has been created in a desert in Grand Junction where the team is undertaking real-life experiments for the final mission to the planet.

Jasdeep Kaur's task in Grand Junction will go beyond just health and safety issues of the crew. She will prepare guidelines for the real MARS mission and will explore the deep subsurface of MDRS as well as the existence of deep subsurface organisms in the world.

Her parents, Dr Harbhajan Singh, a homeopath and mother, Ravinder Kaur, a manager with a national bank, are ecstatic about Jasdeep's achievement.

"Our daughter has keen interest in forensic odontology and space dentistry. Jasdeep is currently working on effect of microgravity on human body," Dr. Harbhajan Singh said.

In 2008, Jasdeep Kaur was in Mangalore to receive the top honour from the prestigious Student Clinician American Dental Association for her table clinic. After her dental degree from Ludhiana, Punjab, she completed a double Master's in Forensic Odontology from Belgium.

Dr. Harbhajan Singh said the university, based on her research in space dentistry, recommended her name to the European Space Station. "There, she undertook research on the impact of space pressure on tooth and jaw. When the Mars mission came up, she applied and was selected after a series of interviews and tests," he said.

Dr Jasdeep Kaur is also the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Aeronautic Dentistry and President of International Forensic Odontology. She has published three medical books and has four patents pending on her research studies.

She is training to set up a desert research station for NASA, in preparation a MARS mission. Teams simulate conditions in space at these stations, therefore the space suits. NASA teams are typically international teams. Therefore an Indian. The picture is cropped, otherwise you would see 2 or 3 other people, also in space suits. You can read the article.

Chandigarh, June 1
Attain exceptional levels of performance, 31 of the 33 students of (UIPS), Panjab University, who appeared in the Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test 2011 (GPAT) conducted nationwide have cleared it. This rigorous exam is the gateway to masters in pharmacy program in prestigious institutions in the country and makes a candidate eligible for doing PhD in pharmacy.

Ekjot Kaur of UIPS scored the first rank in the test outshining 40,000 students across the country. Besides, seven other students of the institute have made it to the top 100. Incidentally seven of the eight top rank holders are girls.

The Indian Pharmaceutical Association (IPA) introduced the test last year for entrance to the MPharma course in leading institutes including the eight National Institutes of Pharmaceutical Education & Research (NIPERs). Admissions to the course were earlier done on the basis of the GATE exam. In 2010 and 2011 10,000 students across the country cleared the exam conducted by MS University, Baroda.

Besides Ekjot, others from PU who secured top slots in GPAT include Sukneeraj Pal Kaur (rank 5), Anurag Singla (17), Tanya Choudhary (26), Pooja Goyal (39), Ashna Puri (56), Ranjana Bhandari (87) and Navjot (96).

“Since the first day after enrolling in the BPharma course our teachers had been motivating us to work towards the entrance test for the masters program. Even during the GPAT exam our classroom lectures helped us score better than others,” said Ekjot, who aspires to seek admission to NIPER, Mohali.

“The mode of teaching at our department is so rigorous we were very well versed with our syllabi. First were taught in the class, followed by practical training and at the end we used to submit our synopsis,” she added.

Pooja, who scored the 39th rank, said besides academics all top rank holders also participated in extracurricular activities. “Students in this department are so disciplined they set an example for others on the PU campus. Our teachers guided us and encouraged us, not only for the entrance exam but also to participate in extracurricular activities”, she added.

“I began preparing seriously for the test last year and the classroom instruction was of great help,” said Ranjana. She, Ekjot and Pooja won positions in the college competition in the National Pharmacy Week organized by IPA.
