April was proclaimed as Sikh Heritage Month by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 2013. In Peel it is recognized by a month-long festival celebrating Sikh culture, arts and heritage.

Caledon educator and author Rosey Kaur is thrilled that her two latest books will be part of the celebration in April this year.

Rosey, a Valleywood resident, has become well-known for her creation The Patka (pronounced put-ka) Box. The resource, which JSC covered in a story about a year ago, has been enjoying broad acceptance and is still gaining momentum throughout the education system locally and abroad.

Not one to be idle, Rosey has since written two books. Knots of Identity: Patka Poems and Knots of Confidence: Patka Affirmations.

Her persistent efforts to connect with Chapters Indigo about her books finally paid off and they are being officially launched there in April. The event, which includes author-signing, takes place on April 5th from 5:00 until 7:30pm at Indigo, 52 Quarry Edge Drive, Brampton.

The Southfields branch of the Caledon Library is hosting a Patka workshop and book launch on April 6th from 1:00 until 3:00pm. This event is open to parents, teachers, and other school staff members. Register through Caledon Public Library.

There will also be a display at Caledon Town Hall featuring The Patka Box and Rosey’s books commencing April 3rd.

“My Councillors, Dave Sheen and Christina Early, have been so wonderfully supportive of me during this entire process” says Rosey. “I hope to be doing a presentation to Council in shortly as well so they are all aware of The Patka Box and the books.”

Rosey has long fostered inclusivity and an appreciation for diversity in her local community and beyond. Sikh Heritage Month seems the perfect time to showcasing her efforts!
