This song is from an event called Jakara 2006 Regional Mata Khivi Day. The clip is from the San Jose group, but the song was sung in different cities across California on Saturday, October 28, 2006.

In 9 cities—Livingston, Turlock, Fresno, San Jose, El Sobrante, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Orange County, and Bakersfield—Sikh youth gathered to celebrate Mata Khivi and talk about issues related to gender that still impact our community. Join the movement for change. We are the ones making a difference.

Here are the words to the song, feel free to join in and sing along if you'd like!

Kaur Kaur Kaur is my name (tap chest 3 times with hand open)

The Guru has made me a queen (hands together and touch top of head as if crowning)

I will always believe in myself

And always reach for my dreams (reach to the sky)

Kaur Kaur Kaur is my name (tap chest 3 times with hand open)

And I know the Guru loves me (hug self)

Strong, Smart, and Beautiful am I (flex, point to temple, open hand down forehead to mouth over face)

Second to No-bod-ee (nobody) (put two fingers up and nod head saying no)

The powerful lyrics of this song resonate with the spirit of empowerment and collective effort to make a meaningful difference. Through the affirming words of the song, participants embraced their identity, strength, intelligence, and beauty, reinforcing the message that they are second to nobody. This musical expression encapsulates the unity and determination of a community striving for positive transformation.
