Instead of our usual blog, today I want to share an interview I did with Simran Jeet Singh. Singh is perhaps America’s most prominent Sikh (just in the past week he was invited to the White House and published an article in Harvard Business Review) and someone I blogged about before. He has just published a wonderful new book called The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life. The book combines autobiography with Sikh teachings and draws on some unbelievable stories of people confronting horrible situations with amazing courage.

The book has received rave reviews and I certainly found it an inspiring read. The audio on Simran’s side has some background noise especially at the start – apologies about that – but you can hear everything he says and some of the stories catch your breath. 

I hope you enjoy.
