Asia Samachar |15 June 2015
Listed below are 23 entries by Asia Samachar for the first two weeks of June. A big majority are original material, first published at this news portal for Sikhs in Southeast Asia. Producing original reports/articles on Sikhs in this region is one of the key objectives of Asia Samachar.
The entries include 8 reports from Malaysia, 5 from Singapore, and one each from Thailand and Myanmar. There is also a report from Surrey, Canada, on the activities of Sikhs who had moved from Southeast Asia to that part of the world.
There are also two death annoucements, both in Malaysia. This is a service provided by Asia Samachar.
You also have 3 features: one on gurdwara design (with some awesome architecture drawings) and a two-part series looking at the movie Nanak Shah Faqir.
All these stories can be viewed at www.asiasamachar.com.
