    FENECH: Martyrdom and the Sikh Tradition with which we are concerned is both Bhangu's and Mal-colm's emphasis upon the Sikh desire to don "the crown of martyrdom." To many contemporary Khalsa and non-Khalsa (or sahaj-dhari) Sikhs the Sikh sahid or martyr is a highly revered figure, an unambiguous exemplar of virtue, truth, and moral justification.

    Sahibzada Zorawar Singh (Punjabi: ਸਾਹਿਬਜ਼ਾਦਾ ਜ਼ੋਰਾਵਰ ਸਿੰਘ, 28 November – 26 December ) was the third of Guru Gobind Singh's four sons. He and his younger brother, Sahibzada Fateh Singh are among the most hallowed martyrs in Sikhism.   Guru Arjan Dev sacrificed his life but did not give up Sikhism, thus protecting his dharma. In Punjab, the Martyrdom Day of Sri Guru Arjan Dev is observed with the full reading of Guru Granth Sahib, a procession carrying the holy book and the distribution of the chabeel, a cold sweet drink. Sikhs also take a holy dip in Harmandir Sahib.

      Endearing letters of a young Sikh boy written to his Japanese pen pal, Takuya, provide the ambiance for Jessi Kaur's delightful presentation of Sikhism from the perspective of a child in Dear high quality of flawless writing and Brian Johnston’s eye-catching illustrations are an unbeatable combination in this delightful and heartwarming story offering glimpses of Sikh life.
