Sikh community may have to evolve and adapt, says Singapore professor, Business Standard, 3 November 2019

Business Standard, a daily Indian business newspaper, carried an article about how Sikh community institutions, organisations and gurdwaras which had traditionally defined Sikh culture may have to evolve and adapt to maintain their identity. The article carried comments by Yale-NUS President and Professor of Humanities (History) Tan Tai Yong, who gave a lecture on 2 Nov as part of the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of the Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev. Prof Tan noted that engagement with youths will be a major challenge, and that the key to continuity is in getting Sikh youths interested to “take some form of ownership in the preservation of Sikh religion, traditions and culture”.

The Tribune, Asia Samachar, LatestLY, and OutlookIndia carried similar articles.
