  1. We learnt all about india we talked about what laungue they do and how is indian writing and we learnt lots about sikhisim and hinduism and they are religions in india.

  2. The Indian men and boys are called SInghs that means tigers and the ladiess and girls are called kaurs that means lovely princesses!

  3. The Sikh faith was founded by Guru Nanak (1469-1539) and shaped by his nine successors in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in South Asia.

  4. Hinduism has no founder, single teacher nor any prophets.
    Hinduism is not a Single Religion. Hinduism is the practices of a variety of different religious groups which come out of India.

  5. The Sikh scripture – Guru Granth Sahib
    Community Kitchen – langar
    Food is cooked by the members of the community and served by members of the community, to all people at the Gurdwara. The idea is to demonstrate equality of all people, irrespective of caste, creed, religion, race or sex.
    Four Doors
    The gurdwara usually has four doors to show that it is open to all.
    The “Nishan Sahib,” a yellow (saffron) triangular flag bearing the Sikh symbol of “Khanda” flies from every Gurdwara. The term ‘nisan’ means ‘flag’ and ‘sahib’ is a term of respect.
