Mata Sahib Kaur, wife of Guru Gobind Singh (10th Guru of the Sikhs), was given the title ‘Mother of the Khalsa’ by the Guru himself. She was a strong female leader, armed warrior and fearless pioneer in the 17th – 18th century.
Mata Sahib Kaur had an extraordinary childhood and led the Khalsa nation for over 40 years after Guru Gobind Singh. She continues to be revered at every Sikh Initiation ceremony, however Mata Sahib Kaur’s actual contribution to society is still largely unknown.
Motherhood: The Journey of Mata Sahib Kaur animation movie is a celebration of Mata Sahib Kaur’s devotion, selflessness and strength and will give society a new female role model.
Everyone involved in creating this movie firmly believe that this will inspire and empower women and girls around the world. This is much needed in society today, where women and girls are suppressed, be it through media pressure, gender-based violence, sexual grooming and in some culture’s female infanticide/foeticide.
Why use animation?
In addition, teachers are also using digital technology much more these days to help educate children in the classroom, since 80% of what children learn is through their vision.
Our vision goes way beyond classic cartoon entertainment. We believe that the power of real-life story-telling and animation to showcase Sikh history is quite possibly the most time-effective and innovative way to teach children about a history they don’t yet know. They will not only be captivated by what they see on screen. They will also be inspired and learn important life values like compassion, courage, righteousness and love that will transfer into their own lives.
