Sikhs in Modern Wars
Duration:  06 minutes, 50 seconds
Release Date:  2004
Directed & Edited by:  Vicky Singh of SikhSangat.com


It is a little known fact that the Sikhs have served as soldiers in both World Wars with the American and British regiments, and are an instrumental force of the Indian army.  This slideshow created by Vicky Singh, pictorially highlights the contributions of Sikhs in the armed services.

An excellent overview of their contributions can be seen here.

This short debuted at a Punjabi cultural show at San Jose State University with an attendance of 10,000 strong.  If anything, this video offers a kind reminder to the Sikh community of a chapter in their history which seems to have been forgotten.

Furthermore this video pays homage to the Gatka 1: The Experimentation short by using its audio introduction.  That 2003 smash hit has inspired many more Sikh based videos to be created, such as this one.
