On Friday, I had a great honour to deliver my speech on “Diversity and Inclusion” to RCMP (Canadian Police) officers at RCMP building in Whitehorse. I felt touched that for nearly 40 minutes, the officers listened to my talk and made efforts to learn what diversity and inclusion means.
Experiencing Old Crow cultural immersion through Old Crow families! All cultures are wonderful- yours and others equally! Being inclusive means just love all.
Moment with my viral video partner at the Pride! Mayor of Whitehorse had created history by becoming first mayor of Canada to learn the art of wearing a Sikh turban.
Meet Bhangra graduates from the Yukon University! It was fun to teach my Yukon University dance students during this winter and spring semesters. I felt amazed and wonderful by their dedication to learn.
Now they are officially Bhangra graduates 🎓!
They also deserve a big applause for their achievement! 👏
Nature and its beautiful creatures | I had joyous moments to have a very friendly company of Canada Geese.

It was my pure honour to see so many amazing people at “Bhangra Dance and Fitness Workshop”, which I organized at Squamish Dance Centre in Squamish, BC on March 3rd, 2018. Thank you so much, Squamish’s beautiful souls, for so much love and respect to my work. I truly felt blessed with your wonderful presence at my gathering! For me, it was a delightful moment to share the gift of bountiful happiness, high-energy workouts, active-and-simple living, togetherness, and positive dance energy with you lovely folks of Sea to Sky Country.

“Bhangra – Dance of Punjab 2017” concert in Whitehorse, Yukon was amazingly successful and wonderful! Inspired by our slogan “Diversity Over Division”, we have put together a show displaying that we can do things together!
We presented a show displaying that we can do things together! It was a fully Made-in-Yukon show. We had 90 performers, all Yukoners and 350 people came to watch it in the middle of busy December month.
And we showcased harmony in the Yukon diversity! We presented our Sikh-Punjabi culture in an exquisitely beautiful way and also blended it with many other Yukon cultures and arts. And we all did it together. We presented many arts from bhangra to Fiddleheads tunes, Celtic bhangra with Crooked folk, bhangra by the Yukon youth from EMYS, bhangra by Yukon College staff, bhangra-blues fusion mix dance, and many more things. We also screened 4 Yukon made viral bhangra videos. The mayor Mr. Dan Curtis learned once again on the stage how to wear a Sikh turban. We also had bhangra dance party after the concert. And thorough this show, the Yukon gave a great message to the world that “Diversity is over division” and we all are one.
And we succeeded in delivering the core message of acceptance of all the styles, choices, ideas, and diversity to the world, right from our Yukon stage!
