Posted October 23rd, 2014 at 3:33 pm.

In the recently published Her Name Is Kaur: Sikh American Women Write About Love, Courage, and Faith, Sangeeta S. Luthra ’88 shares a chapter about her experience as a Sikh woman. In the anthology, Luthra writes about her Darji, or grandfather, and his spiritual influence on her during her time at Bryn Mawr and throughout the rest of her life.

Luthra is quoted in this review explaining, “People don’t realize that Sikhs drove the reform movement in India in the early 20th century. We are the first generation (of Sikhs) to be brought up in the United States, and this book is a way to make sure our voices are heard.”
