Sikh Students Coming Together

We tend to complain a lot. Really, we do. We complain about thelack of activisimby Sikh youth. We complain about not being able to understand Gurbani or be able to do Kirtan. We complain about the disconnect between Sikh elders and Sikh youth. It’s the status quo – to spend time dwelling on what’s wrong in our community rather thancelebrate what’s actually going right.

However, in recent years we’ve been seeing an increased number ofSikh student or Sikh youthsikhstudents.jpg run events – which means it’s becoming clear that the status quo is no longerokay. I think itis not only important, but necessary, for Sikh youth to take more of an active role in their community. So it was refreshing for me to hear about this studentinitiated event which is beingplanned in collaboration with the Sikh Student Associations across California. This Diwan Night, which is to be held on January 24th 2009 in Southern California, will bring together Sikh students from across California for a night of Rehraas, Kirtan,Sewaand Langar.It’s important to support these types of initiatives and encourage Sikh youth to participate incoordinating these events. I hope this is one of many student initiated events which brings various organizations together in the hopes of actively involving youth in Sikhi.

The event is on January 24th, 2009 from 5-11pm at Walnut Gurdwara. If you would like to participate in Kirtan, call GaganKaur at 602 538 5507. For general information, call Rimmy Kaur at 818 309 7282.

    I would be interested in attending this but am curious what types of issues will be discussed? I've attended one too many 'discussions' about who is a Sikh and who isn't – and those discussions are just not for me.

    SAT SRI AKAL JI,

    UNTIL THE WHITEMEN STOP THEIR FEMINIST NONSENSE, THERE CAN BE NO TALK WITH THEM. THERE ARE OTHER MAJOR POINTS OF DISAGREEMENT, SUCH AS PRE MARITAL RELATIONS AND FAST FOOD.

    BUT UNTIL THE INSANE WHITEMEN FORCE FEMINISM UPON US, WE CAN'T EVEN HAVE A DIALOGUE WITH THEM!!!!

    MERE VICHAARAN VICH, THARAM-YUDH KARNAA CHAHIDAA HAI!!!!

    SAT SRI AKAL!!!
