  1. An excellent article.The Sikh community of Yuba City must be commended for their efforts This is so true. We need to reach out to other communities in order to be understood. This is what we have been doing here in Metro Vancouver in general and Richmond in particular. Our on-going Inter-Faith Bridging project has been doing just that. Balwant Sanghera

  2. I’ve been telling our youngsters that for years now (people of my generation are too stuck in their ways). In mainstream American social circles, I tend to find myself very much of a minority (too much of a rarity), therefore I’ve considered myself a Goodwill-Ambassador-of-sorts for Indians and Sikhs, educating people about my culture. It’s amazing how much of a difference even one person can make.

  3. Excellent article indeed. @Balwant Sanghera, I’m from Yuba City and we recently started Yuba Sutter Interfaith and Cultural Council (visit YSICC.org).It would be nice to network and share ideas. Please visit the ysicc.org website and use the contact form to send me an email.

    What Dr. Kang, Tej Mann, and others from the Punjabi American Heritage Society have shown is passion to reach out. There are a lot of people who want to do things but often don’t know how. If a few people take charge – others will join.

    I was surprised to learn about a lot of Sikh groups doing great things. The problem is no one knows about them unless you know where to look.

    If you would like to a part of these groups, look for the Interfaith groups in your area. If you are a member of a Sikh organization, please connect with us at ysicc.org, punjabipioneers.com, and punjabiheritage.org.
