Theatrical Release of “Ocean of Pearls” a film by Sarab Singh Neelam, a resident of Michigan, is scheduled for August 7th 2009 in Michigan. Check out the schedule for show-times.
Amrit Singh is a doctor in North America, a turban wearing Sikh, he has lived his life in Canada, out of sortsand out of place, cast adrift between the East and West. . He is born in a family that holds on to their religious beliefs and is bred in the ethos of professionalism, but Amrit Singh is of two worlds and he belongs to neither. When he sees his dream of becoming Chief of Surgery at a state-of-the-art transplant center in Detroit dwindle because of his appearance, Amrit goes against his life long tradition and cuts his hair. Hiding his decision from his girlfriend and family in Toronto is only the start of a series of compromises Amrit finds himself making as he deals with hospital politics and injustices of the American health care system. He struggles to be the man he believes he is and at the same time the person, he wants to be. When faced with a choice of what is right by his conscience he chooses dangerously but only then can he live with what he sees in the mirror. Straddling the conflicting positions of tradition and opportunity, Amrit understands more deeply, what it is to be successful and chooses to be the person that makes him happy.

I don’t mean to say every sentence of Sufi master matches with Gurbani. They are different spiritual traditions but I found the text helpful in understanding some of the Sikhi concepts.
