Since the time of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, women have made a huge contribution to Sikh society. Then in 1699 they were given the honour of being bestowed with the beautiful title of Kaur by Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
Kaurs are core to the Sikh community; for centuries Kaurs have given, sacrificed, made change and created betterment for all those around them. We want to celebrate Kaurs.
In celebration of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh’s upcoming Gurpurab, Nihal Nihal Nihal Productions introduce the Mata Sahib Kaur Ji Awards; to celebrate the Kaurs in our lives.
In 2018, Nihal Nihal Nihal Productions announced the first animated movie as Motherhood: The Journey of Mata Sahib Kaur which is coming soon; an untold story of an incredible, powerful female leader. We believe by highlighting the unique story of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji, many around the world have wanted to learn about the spiritual Mother of Sikhs and have empowered themselves in their daily lives. Let’s celebrate this great success and keep spreading the movement of female empowerment.
All Kaurs should be celebrated.
