An Illustrated, Online Intro To The Turban





MY HEADCOVERING IS DOWNRIGHT SIKH, A Collection of Cartoons, by Vishavjit Singh, U.S.A., 2011.  


My latest collection of cartoons - 'My Headcovering is Downright Sikh' - was published as a paper-back earlier this year.  

Now, you can read it on your computer, tablet or smartphone for Free!

The inspiration for the digital book came mostly from the response of school teachers and non-Sikh visitors to the Sikhtoons booth at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art Festival and New York Comic Con earlier this year.

Accordingly, this illustrated introduction to turbans is now accessible directly from any internet enabled browser.

In a world where it has become all the more important for us to explain why Sikhs wear turbans and why we are not to be confused for any other group, I felt this was my way to create a more accessible educational moment on the internet that has the potential for making a more tolerant world.

Where can one get a hard copy? I would like to give this to all the kids in my daughter's class. At that age a comic book like this that they can hold is awesome. I love it! And thanks for talking about women and turbans!

Harvind, thank you for words of support. Here is the book homepage that has the link to the online bookstore -

Thank you, Vishavjit Singh ji, for this educational book. I would like to suggest you add a few more turbaned Sikhs in your next edition, such as the first Sikh President of India and the turbaned Sikhs in the U.S. Army (e.g., Major Kamaljeet Singh Kalsi).

Thank you, Vishavjit Singh ji for this. You have done excellent work.
