The main focus of this article is on the economic and social status of the Sikh community in Myanmar (erstwhile Burma). While there is very little scholarship available on persons of Indian origin (PIOs) in general, the Sikh community of Myanmar has drawn even lesser attention. Before discussing the current position of Sikhs in Myanmar, a brief background to India’s increasing engagement with Myanmar in both the economic and non-economic sphere is given. It also briefly discusses the position of other PIOs in Myanmar, before moving to the discussion on the Sikh community in Myanmar.
