AGRUPAMENTO DE ESCOLAS DE CARVALHOSLanguage PortfolioMy Dossier (year 11)Language Portfolio (year 11) – Listening 4The term "Sikh" means disciple, student. Some historians suggests that the name "Sikh" is derived fromthe ancient term"Saka". A Sikh is a disciple/subject of the Guru.According to the Guru Granth Sahib, the Guru of The Sikhs, the definition of a Sikh follows:“ One who calls himself a Sikh of the Guru, the True Guru, shall rise in the early morning hoursand meditate on the Lords Name. Upon arising early in the morning, the Sikh is to bathe, andcleanse himself in the pool of nectar. Following the Instructions of the Guru, the Sikh is tochant the Name of the Lord, All sins, misdeeds and negativity shall be erased. Then, at therising of the sun, the Sikh is to sing Gurbani; whether sitting down or standing up, the Sikh is tomeditate on the Lords Name. One who meditates on my Lord, Ik Onkar, with every breath andevery morsel of food - that Gursikh becomes pleasing to the Gurus Mind. That person, untowhom my Lord and Master is kind and compassionate - upon that Gursikh, the GurusTeachings are bestowed. Servant Nanak begs for the dust of the feet of that Gursikh, whohimself chants the Naam, and inspires others to chant it." ”According to Article I of the "Rehat Maryada" (the Sikh code of conduct and conventions), a Sikh isdefined as "any human being who faithfully believes in One Immortal Being; ten Gurus, from GuruNanak to Guru Gobind Singh; Guru Granth Sahib; the teachings of the ten Gurus and the baptismbequeathed by the tenth Guru; and who does not owe allegiance to any other religion". Sikhs believe inthe equality of humankind, the concept of universal brotherhood and One Supreme transcendent andimmanent God (Ik Onkar).The Sikh religion was founded by Guru Nanak. The origins of Sikhism lie in the teachings of GuruNanak and his successors. The essence of Sikh teaching is summed up by Nanak in these words:"Realization of Truth is higher than all else. Higher still is truthful living". Sikh teaching emphasizes theprinciple of equality of all humans and rejects discrimination on the basis of caste, creed, and gender.According to Sikh tradition, the Guru spread his teachings wherever he traveled. Near the end of his lifethe Guru had many followers from many walks of life and religions. The Guruship was consecutivelypassed down to nine other Gurus, who were stated to have the divine light of God with them. TheseGurus strengthened and expanded the Sikh religion and the revelations of God. The final and lastGuruship was bestowed upon a combined institution of holy-book (Granth) immersed in The GuruGranth Sahib Ji and people (Panth) i.e the Guru Khalsa.Most male Sikhs have Singh (lion) and most female Sikhs Kaur (princess) as their last names. Sikhs whohave undergone the khanḍe-kī-pahul, the Sikh initiation ceremony, can also be recognised by the FiveKs: uncut hair (Kesh); an iron/steel bracelet (kara); a Kirpan, a sword tucked in a gatra strap; Kachehra, acotton undergarment; and a Kanga, a small wooden comb. Baptised male Sikhs must cover their hairwith a turban, while baptised female Sikhs can choose to wear a turban.The greater Punjab region is the historical homeland of the Sikhs, although significant communities existaround the world.

AGRUPAMENTO DE ESCOLAS DE CARVALHOSLanguage PortfolioMy Dossier (year 11)Language Portfolio (year 11) – Listening 4Plot (story) – brief summary: On 11 February 1990, Nelson Mandela is released from Victor Verster Prison after 27 yearsspent in jail. Four years later, Mandela is elected the first black President of South Africa. His presidency faces enormouschallenges in the post-Apartheid era, including rampant poverty and crime. Mandela is particularly concerned about racialdivisions between black and white South Africans, which could lead to violence. The ill will which both groups hold towards eachother is seen even in his own security detail where relations between the established white officers, who had guarded Mandelaspredecessors, and the black ANC additions to the security detail, are frosty and marked by mutual distrust.________________While attending a game of the Springboks, the countrys rugby union team, Mandela recognizes that the blacks in the stadiumcheer against their home squad, as the mostly-white Springboks represent prejudice and apartheid in their minds. He remarksthat he did the same while imprisoned on Robben Island. Knowing that South Africa is set to host the 1995 Rugby World Cup inone years time, Mandela convinces a meeting of the newly black-dominated South African Sports Committee to support theSpringboks. He then meets with the captain of the Springboks rugby team, François Pienaar (Matt Damon), and implies that aSpringboks victory in the World Cup will unite and inspire the nation. Mandela also shares with François a British poem,"Invictus", that had inspired him during his time in prison.________________________________________________________François and his teammates train. Many South Africans, both black and white, doubt that rugby will unite a nation torn apart bysome 50 years of racial tensions. For many blacks, especially the radicals, the Springboks symbolise white supremacy. BothMandela and Pienaar, however, stand firmly behind their theory that the game can successfully unite the South Africancountry.______________________________________________________________________________________________Things begin to change as the players interact with the fans and begin a friendship with them. During the opening games,support for the Springboks begins to grow among the black population. By the second game, the whole country comes togetherto support the Springboks and Mandelas efforts. Mandelas security team also grows closer as the various officers come torespect their comrades professionalism and dedication.______________________________________________________The Springboks surpass all expectations and qualify for the final against The All Blacks— South Africas arch-rivals. NewZealand and South Africa were universally regarded as the two greatest rugby nations, with the Springboks being the only sideto have a winning record against the All Blacks up to this point; however the All Blacks overtook the Springboks in head-to-headwins later in the decade, and also won a test series for the first time in South Africa the following year.The first test seriesbetween the two countries in 1921 was the beginning of an intense rivalry, with emotions running high whenever the two nationsmet on the rugby field._________________________________________________________________________________Before the game, the Springbok team visits Robben Island, where Mandela spent 27 years in jail. There Pienaar is inspired byMandelas will and his idea of self-mastery in the poem "Invictus". François mentions his amazement that Mandela "could spendthirty years in a tiny cell, and come out ready to forgive the people who put [him] there"._______________________________Supported by a large home crowd of both races, Pienaar motivates his team. Mandelas security detail receives a scare when,just before the match, a 747-400 flies in low over the stadium. It is not an assassination attempt though, but a demonstration ofpatriotism. The Springboks win the match on an added time long drop-kick from fly-half Joel Stransky, with a score of 15–12.Mandela and Pienaar meet on the field together to celebrate the improbable and unexpected victory. Mandelas car then drivesaway in the traffic-jammed streets leaving the stadium. As Mandela watches the South Africans celebrating together from thecar, his voice is heard reciting the poem "Invictus".___________________________________________________________2.
