This past mother’s day, to celebrate Sikh mothers and mother-figures, Kaur Life & the Dasvand Network (DVN) ran a photo contest where readers were invited to submit “throw-back” and vintage photos of their mothers (or any Sikh woman).

The two winners: “Most Votes” and “Best Picture,” will be announced on May 17th, 2015. In the mean time, enjoy the wonderful submissions!
