“There is a lovely tradition in Sikhism introduced by guru gobind Singh. He believed there was no difference between male and female. So Sikh names are not gender specific and defined by adding Singh for a man and Kaur for a woman. So if there’s a Kuldip Singh, there’s a Kuldip Kaur. It’s a great tradition of equality.”- Gulzar in conversation with Nasreen Munni Kabir
