The Danger Of A Single Story

This video was forwarded by Mai Harinder Kaur ji. Thank you Mai ji for bringing this to my attention.

I think it is brilliant and very pertinent to todays increasing multicultural world. We all carry stereotypes that we should always be challenging. We need to approach modern media with some skepticism and be responsible for our learning and attitudes.

Thank you for posting this. I think what she is saying is important. Not to mention she's a really good speaker and interesting, too.

I wonder how many people believe a single story about us Sikhs.

And I wonder how many people we believe a single story about.

Shabad Vichaar by SPN'ers

In an attempt to bring more Gurbani into our lives it would be great to analyse one shabad every week. It will be wonderful to get your thoughts about what the shabad is telling us and how we can...
