"I wish my children grow up as Sikhs..."

Two weeks ago I came across a young Somalian man. He said, "Mr Singh, I really respect Sikhs. You give free food in your temples. I have eaten many times." I smiled back. He then said, "You Sikhs are the one's who have come to rescue the world. You are special." I was bit taken aback by his remarks. 

He ended with, "I pray that when I have children they wear turban, have long uncut hair and wear a kirpan like you. I would like them to wear the 5 Ks and have the same beliefs as you because you are good people and come to the rescue the world. But not everyone is blessed to be one."  

A very short but moving conversation.

Dhan Hai Guru, Dhan Hai Teree Sikhee!
