Welcome to Sikhpoint, a brand new Sikh Portal

Welcome to SikhPoint, a brand new Sikh Portal.

We are seeking diverse viewpoints and invite you to share yours as readers or contributors.

We would like to explore the heart of Sikhi -its magnificent inclusiveness, its simple spirituality, its lifestyle and culture, and take inspiration from its glorious past. We want to showcase our burgeoning new artists and filmmakers, authors and entrepreneurs, and of course face the challenges that confront us in the Diaspora.

We will go where the spirit of chardikalaa takes us, and in the process discover some new and extraordinary places.

We want to hear your stories- candid, fresh, authentic.

We seek your comments and your engagement. Your point is as important as anyone else’s. We won’t censor or censure you. But please be respectful. Disagree, if you wish to, but without being disagreeable.

We will steer clear of divisive issues. Very often we are bombarded with the negative and the hopeless. Let us co-create a portal that educates, informs, explores and inspires.

Guru mehar karan.
