The Langar Hall in 2008

As we approach the calendar year 2008, it also marks a year of our existence.

Looking at our top 10 posts in terms of the number of hits, I guess it is sort of a mixed bag on how The Langar Hall is finding its voice. Our top hit getters were usually part of the first comers rule. Our bloggers were the first to put up the Kenneth Cole Sikh Ad and our comment board became a one of the first internet hubs for fans to mourn the loss of Ishmeet Singh.

Still our breakthroughs, in my opinion, were our original commentary that sparked various discussions whether it was about Sikhs and the Media in Will the Revolution be Televised?, the issues of drug distribution in our community in the still popular Balbir Dhami article, looking at the role and effects of Punjabi Sikhs in the ensuing mortgage crisis, or even in creating our desi list in Sikh Medicine.

For the full list, see below the fold:

10) What does Ishmeets Victory Mean?
9) Mumbai Attacks: Terrorism has no Religion
8) Mortgage Crisis, Foreclosures, and Punjabi Sikhs
7) On BC Bud, Cocaine, and Balbir Dhami
6) Simmering Sikhs
5) Sikh Medicine and How Babay Bhangra Paunda
4) Will the Revolution be Televised?
3) Navraj Bassi Sikh CFL Football Player
2) Raising Awareness or a Turban Commodified
1) Ishmeet Singh Passes Away

While I featured, my favorite Sikh post of the year last week, I think my favorite this year by my esteemed fellow Langa-(w)riters was the Green Gurdwara post that deserves renewed attention.

If it isnt obvious, I like solutions and suggestions for them. The Green Gurdwara post was one of the best posts in really helping to enable the commenter-generated community we seek to create in The Langar Hall.

So what are your thoughts? Did you have a favorite for 2008?

Well either way have a wonderful New Year, at the Gurdwara or wherever you bring it in!
