A group in India, Akal Purakh Ki Fauj, is organizing a competition to chose the World’s Best Mr. Singh. Do you think I should enter? I do meet the minimum requirements. :) See the television advertisement below. Missing from all the materials is a registration deadline. I sent them a mail asking about it.

Requirements:

  1. Saabat soorat Sikh boys from all over the world.
  2. Age: 18 to 30 years.
  3. Married/Unmarried.
  4. Educated.
  5. Minimum height: 5’8”. (relax able as per rules and regulations)
  6. Good appearance and Physical fitness.
  7. Should have good interests and hobbies. (like martial arts, Music, reading, writing skills)
  8. Knowledge of Sikh history and Sikh principles.
  9. General knowledge.

HRW and Ensaaf have released a report called “Protecting the Killers: A policy of impunity in Punjab, India.” That’s a pretty powerful and self-explanatory title. I’ll let you read the summary of the report below. More information can be found at Ensaaf’s web site.
