A case of true nimartaa...
Baba Seva Singh jee Anandpur Sahib vale were visiting England and were leaving a house when a Singh picked up Baba jee's shoes and respectfully put them in front of Baba jee to put on.
Baba Seva Singh became very agitated. He cried out "You being a Sikh, why are you touching my shoes?"
He left his shoes there and left the house barefoot and said, "If I put my feet in the shoes that have been touched by a Gursikh, who will I ask to take the jutiyaa(n) waiting for me in the Dargaah (the Lord's Court)?"
