Sikhlens North American Special Presentation of Proud To Be A Sikh II
Synopsis: Proud To Be A Sikh II tells the story of a gursikh professor who returns to India after decades of self-exile following the massacres of Sikhs in 1984. He finds a radically different Punjab, where young Sikh men are cutting their hair, not studying the scriptures, and in general not caring about their Sikh heritage or identity. A well-meaning Khalsa College student’s misinterpretation of Sikhi arouses the interest of his professor. The student, learning from his professor, befriends a non-Sikh and learns what it truly means to be a good Sikh. Meanwhile the professor tries to embody both saintliness and a warrior’s character as he faces challenges and difficulties of his own. By the end, he has inspired all those who know him, and learned new things about himself as well.
