2007 Progress Report-

Feeling the need of Sikh's own media for a long time, I wrote an article on the subject of "Need for Sikh's own media",, which was published in Sikh publications like "Institute of Sikh Studies" Chandigarh and "Sikh Review" of Calcutta. 

To fill the need of Sikh’s own media, we started producing and broadcasting Radio and TV programs in Washington, DC area (the most powerful city in the world) in 1988. One hour Radio program every Sunday was started/produced and broadcast on a commercial Radio station in 1988 and was aired immediately after the newly started Rush Limbaugh Radio show (which is now a very popular nation-wide conservative radio show). 

In 1988 we also produced/broadcast two one hour each special TV Punjabi Cultural shows, which was converted to a regular weekly TV series in 1993 called “Passion For Truth”. This TV show is an English language panel discussion on Sikh issues in India and world-wide, with panelists who are mostly Americans, movers and shakers of Washington, DC establishments like White House, Capital Hill, National and International Think tanks/foundations and editors and International bureau chiefs of National Newspapers like Washington Posts and New York Times. 

In 1995 we started a second weekly TV series “Punjabi Community Hour” dealing exclusively with Sikh scriptures, Katha/Kirtan and Sikh documentaries. Both the TV weekly series are going strong.
