On October 1, 2005 The Scotsman reported, "A film made by young Scottish Sikhs in Edinburgh is set to be shown at the third annual Spinning Wheel Film Festival in Toronto. It's Like Juggling celebrates the lives of Sikhs around the world. The film was produced by Media Education in partnership with Save the Children in Scotland, the Family Resource Network and Sikh Sanjog, an organisation providing support and information to Sikh families living in Edinburgh. The 15 children and young people involved with the project, aged between ten and 15, all attend the Sikh Sanjog Youth Centre. The film features interviews with the youngsters who were also involved in the production of the film, operating cameras and handling sound equipment. It provides an insight into the lives of children and young people in the Sikh community and looks at what it is like to be a Sikh living in Scotland and having to 'juggle' with two identities."
