As part of . . . circle through New York this month Punjabi TV network Jus Broadcasting is shooting episodes of its shows at the St. Philip's Church in Harlem. Watch this episode of their topical show Honestly which asks members of the St. Philip's congregation questions such as: How do you feel about the abuse against minority citizens in America? What's your view of interracial relationships? If African Americans and Indians had a dance-off who would win?
This month Jus Broadcasting is taking up St. Philip's Church's call to action. They have specifically decided to reflect on the lack of Punjabi women actively involved in political scenarios. Why are they not involved and what are some ways they can get involved? These include, but are not limited to, gurudwara (sikh temple) politics, Punjab politics, Indian politics, American politics (local and federal).
During the . . . circle through New York Open House Jus Broadcasting invited the general public into thier studio to shoot an episode of the show Honestly. The questions of the day related to the role of women in contemporary politicl life.

Interim Director and Professor of the History of the Exact Sciences in Antiquity, Alexander Jones, has written a poem for Pinkie.
Limerick for Pinkie
Our Pinkie's no garrulous cockatoo!
She seldom will speak when she's talkèd to.
We'll forgive her; she's blest
With a fine salmon crest,
And besides, she's an expert nutcracker too.
