Jat Gil (Sikh traditions) of India

Introduction / History
Hollywood is a familiar name in the Western world for being the center of the entertainment and film industry, but throughout most of South Asia, the entertainment hub is nicknamed "Bollywood," centered in Mumbai. A name that crops up time and again in Bollywood is the surname Shergill. A number of Shergills are prominent in India's entertainment industry.

The Shergill name comes from the Gill Jat clan, mostly from India's Punjab State. The Gill Jat clan is found in the Punjab regions straddling eastern Pakistan and northwestern India. It is one of the largest and most aristocratic of the Jat clans. Historically they were renowned for their courage, honesty, and bravery. During the British control of India, Sir Lepal Griffin said that, "The Jat race is, for honesty, strength, and courage, second to no race on earth." As with other Jats, some are Hindu or Muslim, but most are Sikhs.

In every people group, there are pioneers ready to break with culture and tradition and explore something new. TV and film might be just such a venue for the gospel message.

Prayer Points
* Pray for God to anoint and appoint workers to create relevant, culturally sensitive Christ-centered radio, TV, and films that will be appropriate for the Gill Sikhs of India.
* Pray for the Gill Jats, even those who work in the entertainment industry, to see their need for Jesus Christ.
