Solo Players by Meir Geuz BOOK REVIEW




Mystery is the secret behind the power of Solo, a highly covert organization of assassins, whose most senior members don’t even know who they work for.

Solo chooses its missions carefully and carries them out under the cover of innocent events or accidents. The only condition: the assassination must serve the good of the Jewish people.

Mikey is tasked with the simple mission of guarding a famous actress, but finds himself right in the middle of an international affair when a British minister is found dead.

As secrets from the past begin to surface and good friends are revealed as enemies, Solo’s hit list continues to lengthen. How is Mikey connected to these strange events? And should he be concerned about his own fate?

Remembering 9/11 as a Sikh


How life would change for so many of us. 20 years ago, we couldn't believe what we were seeing. We’ll never forget those who died, the many injured and the countless left to endure the loss of loved ones. It's imperative to take a second of your day to pay respects.

As a Sikh and others in and out of my community, 9/11 is also a day that would change our lives forever. With the news being broken of the planes being hijacked by "Terrorists" who apparently "looked like me" - (their words not mine) the hate crimes began.

Balbir Singh Sodhi, a successful American gas station owner got murdered in the aftermath of 9/11. The first of several cases as supposed acts of retaliation. The same goes for so many of our Muslim brothers and sisters who endured much harassment and still.

From personal experience, touring and exhibiting has not always been the nicest experience. An interesting observation wearing a chunni has certain public in open conversation with me, but wearing my chunni had more drama. Staring, moving away on public transport, being called "Terrorist" to name a few of many incidents.

Sikhs are often misidentified as Terrorists or Muslims by citizens who know nothing or little about religion and faith. And before its said, NO! it does not make it right targeting, or throwing another's faith on the line. It takes an open mind and will to learn and celebrate our differences.

But as always, my community knows how to rise above any challenge, it comes naturally and instilled in our blood from the time of our Gurus. It's why we're known to be warriors and serve humanity first.

As a Sikh who has seen and experienced the aftermath of 9/11, today is not only about remembering each and every individual who lost their life meaninglessly on the WTC attack. Its also a reminder and a pledge to carry the name high, of those in and out of my community who lost their lives being murdered, attacked and STILL getting discriminated on for "looking like them" - (again, their words not mine)…

Why am I Sikh? Why do I want to marry a Sikh man?


 Hello,readers!

So, I was a practicing Buddhist for a majority of my life. I've been aware of Sikhism and the belief system behind it. A couple of years I started reading more in depth about Sikhism. I attended a couple of gurdwaras, which is considered a place of worship for Sikhs. Just reading the rich history and culture of these brave men that martyred themselves for the sake of there religion made me quite interested. I converted instantly after reading these stories and how brave these men are. They do so many selfless acts,which is known as seva.

I've only told two people I know about my conversion and they found it quite interesting. They found it even more interesting that I want to marry a Sikh man. Ive been striving to learn more about the culture and the Punjabi language. I even was taught how to make samsosas,pakoray and chappattis at my local gurdwara.

I feel highly attracted to men that wear turbans and have long beard. I think they look wise and extremely handsome. I want to marry an Amritdhari Sikh man, even though that may sound impossible. An Amritdhari Sikh follows the 5 K's and are completely devoted to the Gurus and Waheguru ji.

I would have never thought years ago I would be following this path or wanting to marry Sardar ji Sikh man. I really hope I'll marry one in the next couple of years or so.
