Who are the Sikhs? Noel Cheer on Face Television

Who are the Sikhs?

The religion of the Sikh people came to birth about 600 years ago in the Punjab region of India –  the gateway to the Indian subcontinent for people from Greece, Central Asia and Iran. 

Simplistically put, Sikhism blends the Dharma-based religion of Hinduism with Abrahamic concepts from Islam.  

The guest this week In Conversation with Noel Cheer on Face Television is a member of the Sikh community in New Zealand, Mr Rajinder Bedi J.P.

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
