Press Release Summary: The largest Sikh Social Network - - relaunches
its new site as exclusive invite only social network for Professional Sikhs

Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 14/02/08

Press Release Body: During his last semester at university, Richard Ivey School of
Business student, Ash Singh, was chosen to participate in an exchange program at the
Chinese University of Hong Kong. A turbaned Sikh himself, Ash was eager to make Sikh
contacts in Hong Kong. He was especially eager to find out key information, such as,
whether there was someone to teach him how to play the tabla at the Gurudwara in
Hong Kong; he wanted to find out if there were any Sikhs in the export business so
he could get some guidance on how to launch his own company in China; moreover, he
was eager to see if there were other Sikhs studying at the Chinese University.

Unfortunately, his inquiries in the months leading up to his departure came up
short. \"While the web is teeming with Sikh sites of all kinds, I never found a site
that was meant to link people. You\'ll find many matrimonial sites and sites focused
on teaching Sikhi, but a site where people go expressly to make business or
spiritual Sikh contacts was nowhere to be found.\" Says Ash.

So Ash, an entrepreneur in the tech industry, decided to build the site himself. He
brought together programmers from China, web designers from Singapore, and Gurmustuk
Singh Khalsa, the founder of SikhNet, became his mentor. Combining the best from
each field, and adding his own business savvy, Ash built a site just for Sikhs.

Thus, was created and in May 2004, made its appearance on the web.

Sikhpal is a spiritual, social, and business-networking site, meant to connect Sikhs
of all ages and of all nationalities. Moving to a new area within your own city?
Find a contact in your future neighbourhood, on Visiting a new country?
Find yourself a Sikh tour guide on Want to find a kirtan teacher in
your area? Use Sikhpal.

Sikhpal\'s effectiveness is maximized by its use of the concept of \"Six Degrees of
Separation.\" The concept centres on the idea that a person is separated from any
other person in the world by at most, six steps. Sikhpal\'s focus is to make those
six steps easier to take. A main feature on the site is that if you find someone
whose profile looks interesting to you, you can ask to become his or her \"friend\".
Once you are that person\'s \"friend\" you have access to their friends list, which in
turn allows you to see who they\'re friends with. Find someone interesting? Add them
to your friend list too. The more contacts you make, the more contacts you will have
access to. It is really that simple.

The site also features a clubs section, which allows like-minded members to meet and
discuss common interests such books, music, or more specific aspects of Sikhi.
Members are given their own \"Friendbook\" which allow members to put in a good name
for their friends. A \"forums\" section also exists for people to post their thoughts

Sikhpal\'s goal is to bring Sikhs closer together. Sikhpal wants Sikhs to connect
with other Sikhs be it for business, spiritual, or for social reasons. \"In just 2
weeks, hundreds of Sikhs from all over the world have signed up and are interacting
and connecting like never before.\" Says Ash. \"And as more Sikhs join Sikhpal, our
users will continue to benefit in new and interesting ways.\"
