Consciousness needs expression in the physical self as ideology needs expression in social practice. Both are interdependent and causal. From its origins, the Sikh world has remained steadfast against an onslaught of denigrating forces, while simultaneously embracing the right to rational egalitarian thought. However, today there are undeniably disruptive tremors within the Sikh world— destructive energies which inject a character that is both essentially "Brahminical" in theory and praxis. In this context the Sikh must transform both his or her inner and outer world so as to preserve the teachings of freedom for society as enunciated in the Guru Granth Sahib, as well as his or her own freedom in its most pure and sacred form. About the Presenter: Dr. Manisha Bangar is a practicing Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. She is an Executive Committee Member of the Research & Development Wing of BAMCEF India and serves as National Vice President of Mulnivasi Sangh, a frontal off shoot of BAMCEF India. She is a frequent public speaker on political and social topics, with a special interest in the role of women and gender in Indian history and contemporary culture.
