Sikh Awareness Week

By Salima Stanley-Bhanji

The University of Calgary Sikh community meets every Wednesday to practice Simran — the realization which is the highest aspect and purpose in one’s life. This week — March 12-16 — is Sikh Awareness Week, part of the Students’ Union’s Culture Month initiative. Sikh Awareness Week promotes Sikhism through film, music and conversation. Events during the week included the movie “Ocean of Pearls” and a lecture on Sikhism, culminating with Sikh Cultural Day on Friday. It is presented by the SU in association with the Sikh Students’ Association.
