Amongst The Sikhs
When some of the Sikhs left their homeland, an uncertain future stared them in the face. The antidote to this incertitude was their determination to make a name for themselves wherever their destiny would propel them. And so they did. Some spread Guru Nanak's message in the western hemisphere, while others went on to become members of parliament in their adopted countries. Yet others sang the gurbani in the west or were invested with the Order of the British Empire. They entertained the high and mighty at their chain of Indian hotels, and even regaled the world during wrestling bouts. Neither the lack of funds nor the feeling of cultural alienation could dwarf their will to succeed. Amongst the Sikhs: Reaching for the Stars is a celebration of Sikhs, especially diaspora Sikhs who came, who saw and who conquered.
