UK open to Sikh as head of armed forces, judiciary, says David Cameron! http://barusahib.org/wp/?p=3044

London: British Prime Minister David Cameron has for the first time said the UK is open to having a Sikh as the head of its armed forces or as chief justice. 

At a Baisakhi celebration event, Cameron heaped praise on “the hard working” Sikh community in the country andinvited more from the community to enter the parliament. 

“I’m proud that we have in Paul Uppal a British Sikh on Conservative benches,’’ he said. “Paul is here working hard – but we shouldn’t rest until we see more British Sikhs on green benches and red benches, until we see 
more British Sikhs at the top of every one of our organisations – whether that is our army, or our judiciary –not because we should believe in tokenism, but because we won’t access the talent of our country unless we 
demonstrate that everyone from every background and faith can get to the top of any organization that they choose and that is so important for our country.’’ ’’Read more here - http://barusahib.org/wp/?p=3044

WAKE UP CALL... Drug Addict Widows are living at Rs. 250 pension! says a Times of India feature. http://goo.gl/KhIyl8

This story written by Robin David, published in Times of India on the Sikh Sajna Diwas - Vaiskhi points out to the reality of Punjab that is now known as a Drug State. The point to be noted here is how a non resident of India knows the real state of Punjab too well and the Government of India is sitting blindfolded by not noticing the ever increasing drug addiction in Punjab! 

We, at The Kalgidhar Trust, Baru Sahib believe in bringing a positive change in the society by bringing a wave of Rural Transformation by getting out of school rural children back to school and make them the change makers in their families and villages. We believe that education is the only way out in the fight against drugs. There have been many kids studying at 129 Akal Academies who have helped in bringing their family members out of drugs. We believe in churning out change makers as the only solution to this problem of drug addiction engulfing the Rangla Punjab!
