During the evening we will be launching a book – Life of a Gurmukh featuring on Sant Teja Singh ji’s life.

The history of Sikhs of North America may reveal new possibilities and perspectives in the multicultural understanding of Sikhs’ existential situation.

Coupled with the historic accounts of their struggles and achievements over the years, the speakers would touch upon the importance of lessons learnt and the new challenges emerging in the context of the present times. This should be of great significance particularly when Sikhs are emerging as an influential community of Canada both politically and culturally.
