Punjabi Sahit Sabha Seattle is a statewide literary association of Punjabi poets, prose writers and singers. It is a non profit organization working to promote Punjabi language, literature, art and culture. It also welcomes Punjabi authors from across the Canadian border. Dr. Jasbir Kaur also teaches Punjabi as a second language to young children on the Weekends at a Punjabi School run by the largest Sikh Temple in the state of Washington. That Sikh Temple is located in the city of Renton and Avtar S. Adampuri is serving his second term as the General Secretary of Temple Management Committee elected by the largest congregation in the state. Mr. Adampuri is a very busy man and that was the reason he could not accept Amrik's suggestion to serve as Sahit Sabha's President this year and instead requested Amrik to serve as its President for another year. Punjabi Sahit Sabha is planning to have several literary meetings this year that began in June and will end in June of 2004. The first such literary get together will occur in July, 2003 at Mr. Adampuri's house in Kent, WA, USA.
