Stories of discrimination were also narrated which highlighted the general lack of knowledge about the Sikh community from the general public. Other issues that were discussed included the domestic abuse women face and how the community can support these women and make a positive impact on lives shattered by abuse whether its mental or physical.
One narrative described how a man lost faith in his religion because he felt judged – it was a reminder to us all that how we must always be aware of how we treat people of our own communities and that judgment only works to ostracize. And when living in a country miles away from homeland, community needs to stick together, not divide themselves.
The evening was a pioneering endeavor in creatively telling the Sikh story. It tore away from the ways in which the Sikh community has been represented or misrepresented in media and relied solely on real people and their real experiences to bring together a show with which each audience member could identify.
