Meet The SikhNet Staff

Guru Mustuk Singh Khalsa - Webmaster (full time)

Gurumustuk Singh spent his early years (1983-1994) going to school in India. After graduating from high school, started a project to create a book (For the Youth, By the Youth). The aim was to share experiences and help educate other youth about overcoming the challenges of being a Sikh and growing up.


After returning to the USA he started his first website on the internet. He quickly realized that this was the best medium to reach the youth and decided to setup a website instead of creating a book. This site grew to become what we now know as SikhNet.com, and was founded in December 1995.

Gurumustuk Singh lives with his wife and son in Espanola, New Mexico and continues to develop the SikhNet website with the rest of the SikhNet team. Periodically he travels to different cities around the world to participate in Sikhi camps, network with other Sikhs, and share his experiences.

You can read his daily Weblog (www.MrSikhNet.com) which chronicles his life and the lives of the Sikhs in Espanola, New Mexico.
