Rattan Deep Singh a C.A. from PwC provided community advocacy training to defend the right to wear Kakaar (articles of faith). Jagdeep Singh and Amardeep Singh, of the Turbanator team, spoke of an Indian cycling association that has banned turbaned Sikhs from participating in their events. There was an art workshop on human rights coordinated by principal Navneet Kaur and Jyoti Kaur, an art teacher of the American Embassy School, Delhi. Avneet Kaur of Basics of Sikhi did a spiritual family counselling session. Arwinder Kaur of Fateh TV coordinated games and quizzes to awaken the soul. Designer/Photographer, Maninder Singh of Basics of Sikhi, took our breath away with photos he took during his trip to Hemkunt Sahib in December. Jatin Singh coordinated the Tie a Turban Today session for all 150 participants. Komal JB Singh spoke of leading humanitarian relief missions against the odds. Bhai Esher of Hyderabad conducted a 'Relearn Japji Sahib' workshop. Joginder Singh of Bibek Trust shared his skills so kids and adults learnt punjabi in the workshop, 'Learn Panjabi in an Hour'. And there were live links between the participants and 84 yr old Bapu Surat Singh, who has been on a two year hunger strike for the release of long serving Sikh political prisoners.
