WOMEN ARE GIVEN VERY HIGH STATUS IN SIKHISM

As to those women on whose part you suspect disobedience admonish them first, next refuse to share their beds, and then beat them…..from Quran.

There is no God on earth for a woman than her husband.....She must on the death of her husband allow herself to be burnt alive on the same…

THE POOR DISCRIMINATED HINDU BIHARIS CONVERT TO SIKHISM IN BIHAR, INDIA

halhalia.jpg



It’s a nondescript temple at Halhalia village in Bihar’s Araria district. It doesn’t have an idol; a mound of earth in one corner of the roofless one-room shrine represents Din Bhadri Devi, the local deity. Its walls are bare, but for priest Amlanand Rishidev, there is a more pressing problem than the upkeep of the temple: there is no one to inherit his priesthood. Halhalia village is home to over 100 families of which 28 have converted to…

THE 120th DAY OF PREGNANCY

by Alessandra Khalsa

 

 

It was the summer of 1998 and I was lounging in the passenger seat of my friend’s car. Spots of sunlight touched us as we made our way through the winding road of trees. I looked up at the bright green, waving leaves and was suddenly struck by the most vivid vision I had ever experienced. Smiling green eyes looked down at me from a round little face, framed by very…
