Sexual Liberation is No Liberation
Ek Ong Kaar Kaur

July 23, 2003 : New York, USA
What gave me pause in my days as a feminist activist was the sheer anger women placed at the feet of men, without ever seeing that the men were equally as imprisoned as they were.

BOOK REVIEW
Reduced to Ashes
Jasbir Singh

Lt. Governor Bustamante of California has intervened into the investigation of the murder and attempted murder of two Sikh taxi drivers in Richmond, California. He is pressuring the Richmond Police Department and the Attorney General into investigating the matter as a hate crime.

LETTER: Inderbir Singh
July 22, 2002: California
You are absolutely right regarding Gurbilas Patshahi 6 and Rehat Maryada of Darbar Sahib. The Udasis, Nirmalas and Mahants were thrown out of the Gurudwaras in 1920's, however they are coming back in the form of so called Sant's in various Gurudwaras who are spreading their message throughout North America. The Gurudwara Management Committees should not allow these people to speak from the stage.
