When a baseless accusation is made by ill-wishers... । ਜਦੋਂ ਸ਼ਰਾਰਤੀ ਅਨਸਰਾਂ ਵੱਲੋਂ ਬੇਬੁਨਿਆਦ ਇਲਜ਼ਾਮ ਲਾਇਆ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ...

    

Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh Ji wrote about the life of Akali Kaur Singh Ji that is included in the book "Jeewan Britant Akali Kaur Singh Nihang" (page 168). In one recollection of Akali Kaur Singh Ji, Bhai Sahib writes about an inspiring episode which many of us can relate to at some point in life and feel reassured by:
 

ਤੀਜੀ ਝਾਕੀ ਕਈ ਸਾਲਾਂ ਪਿਛੋਂ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਸਰ ਦਰਬਾਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਵਿੱਚ ਇਸ ਵਿਅਕਤੀ ਦੀ ਹੋਈ; ਪਰ ਚਿਹਰਾ ਬੜਾ ਉਤਾਰੂ ਸੀ, ਰੂਪ ਰੰਗ ਵੀ ਅੱਗੇ ਵਾਂਗ ਨਹੀਂ ਸੀ। ਚਿਹਰੇ ਉੱਤੇ ਉਦਾਸੀਨਤਾ ਛਾਈ ਸੀ। ਵਾਕਫਕਾਰਾਂ ਪਾਸੋਂ ਪੁਛਣ ਤੇ ਪਤਾ ਲੱਗਾ ਕਿ ਇਹਨਾਂ ਉੱਪਰ ਕਿਸੇ ਦੋਖੀ ਨੇ ਅਣਹੋਈ ਊਜ ਲਾਈ। ਇਸ ਕਰਕੇ ਇਹ ਗਮਗੀਨ ਹਨ। "ਸੋ ਡਰੈ ਜਿ ਪਾਪ ਕਮਾਵਦਾ ਧਰਮੀ ਵਿਗਸੇਤੁ ॥" ਬਸ ਇਨਾ ਕਹਿ ਮੈਂ ਇਨਹਾਂ ਪਾਸੋ ਵਿਦਾ ਹੋਇਆ।

My third sight [of Akali Kaur Singh] came after many years in the Parkarma (circumference) of Sri Darbaar Sahib, Amritsar. But this time his face seemed down, and his colour and demeanor were not like before. His face had a certain sadness upon it. After asking those who knew him what was the matter, I found out that one of his enemies had made a baseless accusation against him and because of this, he was depressed. 

I said the following to him and then took my leave:

ਸੋ ਡਰੈ ਜਿ ਪਾਪ ਕਮਾਵਦਾ ਧਰਮੀ ਵਿਗਸੇਤੁ ॥ 
so dar'ai je paap kamaav'daa, dhar'mee vig'seyt.

The one who commits sins lives in fear,
while the one who lives righteously remains blossoms (i.e. happy).

(Raag Siri Raag, Ang 84)

"ਭਾਈ ਮਨਵੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਯੂ.ਕੇ." ਦੇ ਨਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਭੰਬਲਭੂਸਾ । Confusion over the name of "Bhai Manvir Singh UK" (Panjabi Version)

ਫੇਕ ਆਈਡੀਆਂ ਪਿੱਛੇ ਲੁਕ ਕੇ ਝੂਠੀਆਂ ਗੱਲਾਂ ਬਣਾਉਣੀਆਂ ਤੇ ਹਾਸੋਹੀਣੇ ਕਮੈਂਟ ਕਰਨੇ ਦਾਸ ਤੇ ਬਾਕੀ ਸਾਰੀ ਦੁਨੀਆਂ ਲਈ ਕੋਈ ਨਵੀਂ ਗੱਲ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ। ਇਹ ਹੀ ਸਮਝ ਆਉਂਦੀ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਇਹ ਲੋਕ ਮਾਨਸਕਿ ਤੌਰ ਤੇ ਬਿਮਾਰ ਹਨ ਜਾਂ ਈਰਖਾ ਤੇ ਨਫ਼ਰਤ ਦੇ ਭਰੇ ਪਏ ਹਨ। ਝੂਠ ਤਾਂ ਲੋਕੀ ਬੋਲਦੇ ਹੀ ਸਨ, ਪਰ ਹੁਣ ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖ਼ਤ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਦੇ ਸੰਦੇਸ਼ ਨੂੰ ਵੀ ਨਹੀਂ ਬਖਸ਼ਿਆ। ਝੂਠੀ ਖ਼ਬਰ ਅਨੁਸਾਰ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖਤ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਵਲੋਂ ਦਾਸ ਨੂੰ ਬਾਈਕਾਟ ਕਰਨ ਦੀ ਅਪੀਲ ਕੀਤੀ ਗਈ ਹੈ। ਦਾਸ ਤੇ ਦੋਸ਼ ਲਾਇਆ ਗਿਆ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਦਾਸ ਨੇ ਬਰਮਿੰਘਮ (ਯੂ.ਕੇ.) ਵਿੱਚ ਇੱਕ ‘ਸਤਿਕਾਰ ਕਮੇਟੀ’ ਬਣਾਈ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਜੀ ਦੇ ਬਹੁਤ ਸਾਰੇ ਸਰੂਪਾਂ ਦੀ ਸਾਂਭ ਸੰਭਾਲ ਦੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਕਰਨ ਦੇ ਨਾਮ ਹੇਠ ਬੇਅਦਬੀਆਂ ਕੀਤੀਆਂ ਹਨ ਅਤੇ ਇਸ ਸੇਵਾ ਦੇ ਨਾਮ ਹੇਠ ਸੰਗਤਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਗੁੰਮਰਾਹ ਕਰਕੇ ਪੈਸੇ ਇਕੱਠੇ ਕੀਤੇ ਹਨ। ਪਹਿਲੀ ਗੱਲ ਦਾਸ ਬਰਮਿੰਘਮ ਵਿੱਚ ਨਹੀਂ ਰਹਿੰਦਾ। ਦੂਜੀ ਗੱਲ ਸਤਿਕਾਰ ਕਮੇਟੀ ਯੂ.ਕੇ. ਨੂੰ ਸਥਾਪਤ ਕਰਨਾ ਤਾਂ ਦੂਰ ਦੀ ਗੱਲ ਹੈ, ਦਾਸ ਤਾਂ ਇਸ ਸੰਸਥਾ ਦਾ ਮੈਂਬਰ ਵੀ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ! ਜਦੋਂ ਦਾਸ ਨੇ ਪਹਿਲੀ ਵਾਰ ਚਿੱਠੀ ਪੜ੍ਹੀ, ਤਾਂ ਮੈਂ ਸੋਚਿਆ, "ਕੋਈ ਕਮਲਾ ਬੰਦਾ ਇਹ ਨਾ ਸੋਚ ਲਵੇ ਕਿ ਇਹ ਮਨਵੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਮੈਂ ਹੀ ਹਾਂ!"


ਅਸਲੀਅਤ ਇਹ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਇਹ ਪੱਤਰ ਬਾਬਾ ਸੰਘ ਗੁਰਦੁਆਰਾ ਸਮੈਥਵਿਕ (ਬਰਮਿੰਘਮ, ਯੂ.ਕੇ.) ਨੂੰ ਸੰਬੋਧਿਤ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ ਸੀ। ਉਸ ਵਿੱਚ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਗਿਆ ਹੈ ਕਿ 'ਸਤਿਕਾਰ ਕਮੇਟੀ ਯੂ.ਕੇ' ਬਣਾਉਣ ਵਾਲੇ 'ਮਨਵੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਯੂ.ਕੇ' ਉੱਤੇ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਜੀ ਦੀਆਂ ਪਾਵਨ ਬੀੜਾਂ ਦੀ ਬੇਅਦਬੀ ਕਰਨ ਦੇ ਦੋਸ਼ ਲਾਏ ਗਏ ਸਨ ਜਿੰਨਾ ਦੇ ਉਹ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖ਼ਤ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਨੂੰ ਤਸੱਲੀਬਖ਼ਸ਼  ਜਵਾਬ ਦੇਣ ਵਿੱਚ ਅਸਫਲ ਰਹੇ। ਇਸ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਉੱਤੇ ਗੰਭੀਰ ਦੋਸ਼ ਲਾਏ ਗਏ ਕਿ 'ਸਤਿਕਾਰ ਕਮੇਟੀ ਯੂ.ਕੇ' ਦੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਦੇ ਨਾਮ ਹੇਠ ਬੇਈਮਾਨੀ ਨਾਲ ਪੈਸੇ ਇਕੱਠੇ ਕੀਤੇ ਗਏ ਹਨ।


ਐਤਵਾਰ ਨੂੰ, ਫ਼ਰਾਂਸ ਸਮਾਗਮ ਵਿੱਚ ਹਾਜ਼ਰੀ ਭਰਦੇ ਹੋਏ, ਮੈਨੂੰ ਕਿਸੇ ਨੇ ਇੱਕ ਫੇਸਬੁੱਕ ਪੇਜ ਦੀ ਪੋਸਟ ਭੇਜੀ। ਉਸ ਪੋਸਟ ਵਿੱਚ ਵੀਡੀਓ ਦਿੱਤੀ ਗਈ ਸੀ ਜਿਸ ਵਿੱਚ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਹਰਪ੍ਰੀਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੀ ਤਸਵੀਰ ਲਾਈ ਹੋਈ ਸੀ ਅਤੇ ਤਸਵੀਰ ਦੇ ਹੇਠਾਂ ਪੰਜਾਬੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਗਿਆ ਸੀ, "ਮਨਵੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਯੂ.ਕੇ. ਦਾ ਜਥੇਦਾਰ ਨੇ ਬਾਈਕਾਟ ਕਰਨ ਦਾ ਸੰਗਤ ਨੂੰ ਦਿੱਤਾ ਸੁਨੇਹਾ"। ਜਦੋਂ ਦਾਸ ਨੇ ਇਸ ਵੀਡੀਓ 'ਤੇ ਕਲਿੱਕ ਕੀਤਾ, ਤਾਂ ਦਾਸ ਨੇ ਆਪਣੀਆਂ ਹੀ ਵੱਖ ਵੱਖ ਫੋਟੋਆਂ ਦੇਖੀਆਂ ਤੇ ਲਿੱਖੇ ਹੋਏ ਝੂਠ ਨੂੰ ਦੁਹਰਾਇਆ ਗਿਆ। ਵੀਡੀਓ ਵਿੱਚ ਖੋਜ ਕਰਨ ਜਾਂ ਅਸਲੀ ਜਾਣਕਾਰੀ ਪੇਸ਼ ਕਰਨ ਦਾ ਉੱਦਮ ਬਿਲਕੁਲ ਨਹੀ ਮਿਲਿਆ, ਜਿਸ ਕਰਕੇ ਬਹੁਤ ਸਾਰੀਆਂ ਸੰਗਤਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਗਲਤ ਜਾਣਕਾਰੀ ਫੈਲਾਈ ਗਈ ਅਤੇ ਬੇਲੋੜਾ ਸ਼ੰਕਾ ਪੈਦਾ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ। ਇਹ ਸਪੱਸ਼ਟ ਜਾਪਦਾ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਕਿਸੇ ਈਰਖਾਲੂ ਤੇ ਨਫਰਤ ਪੈਦਾ ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲੇ ਅਨਸਰ ਨੂੰ ਝੂਠੀ ਜਾਣਕਾਰੀ ਫੈਲਾਉਣ ਦਾ ਇੱਕ ਮੌਕਾ ਮਿਲਿਆ ਹੈ।


ਦਾਸ ਮੁੜ ਦੁਬਾਰਾ ਸੰਗਤਾਂ ਲਈ ਸਪੱਸ਼ਟ  ਕਰਨਾ ਚਾਹੁੰਦਾ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖ਼ਤ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਦੇ ਪੱਤਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਜ਼ਿਕਰ ਕੀਤੇ ਹੋਏ ਯੂ.ਕੇ ਦੇ 'ਭਾਈ ਮਨਵੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ' ਦਮਦਮੀ ਟਕਸਾਲ ਯੂ.ਕੇ. ਨਾਲ ਸੰਬੰਧ ਰੱਖਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਹਨ, ਸਤਿਕਾਰ ਕਮੇਟੀ ਯੂ.ਕੇ. ਦੇ ਮੁੱਖੀ ਹਨ, ਅਤੇ ਬਰਮਿੰਘਮ (ਯੂ.ਕੇ.) ਵਿੱਚ ਰਹਿੰਦੇ ਹਨ। ਇਹ ਭਾਈ ਮਨਵੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਹੋਰ ਵੀ ਨਾਵਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਜਾਣੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਹਨ ਜਿਵੇਂ ਕਿ ‘ਮਨੀਪਾਲ’, ‘ਮੰਨਾ’ ਅਤੇ ‘ਮਨਬੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ’। ਵੱਖ-ਵੱਖ ਨਾਵਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਜਾਣੇ ਜਾਣ ਕਾਰਨ ਸੰਗਤਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਕਦੇ-ਕਦਾਈਂ ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦੇ ਅਸਲੀ ਨਾਮ ਬਾਰੇ ਗਲਤੀ ਲੱਗ ਜਾਂਦੀ ਹੈ।

ਦਾਸ ਸ਼੍ਰੋਮਣੀ ਗੁਰਦੁਆਰਾ ਪ੍ਰਬੰਧਕ ਕਮੇਟੀ ਦੇ ਅਧਿਕਾਰੀਆਂ ਦਾ ਧੰਨਵਾਦੀ ਹੈ ਜਿੰਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਤੁਰੰਤ ਕਾਰਵਾਈ ਕੀਤੀ ਅਤੇ ਗਲਤ ਵੀਡੀਓ ਪੋਸਟ ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲੇ ਫੇਸਬੁੱਕ ਪੇਜ ਨਾਲ ਸੰਪਰਕ ਕਰਕੇ ਇਸਨੂੰ ਹਟਾ ਦਿੱਤਾ। ਬੇਸ਼ੱਕ ਵੀਡੀਓ ਨੂੰ ਹਟਾ ਦਿੱਤਾ ਗਿਆ ਸੀ, ਪਰ ਫਿਰ ਵੀ ਇਸ ਨੂੰ ੬ ਹਜ਼ਾਰ ਤੋਂ ਵੱਧ ਲੋਕ ਦੇਖ ਚੁੱਕੇ ਹਨ ਅਤੇ ਬਹੁਤ ਸਾਰੇ ਲੋਕਾਂ ਨੇ ਇਸਨੂੰ ਹੋਰਨਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਸਾਂਝਾ ਵੀ ਕੀਤਾ ਹੈ। ਲੋਕਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਕੋਈ ਵੀ ਖਬਰ ਜ਼ਿੰਮੇਵਾਰੀ ਨਾਲ ਸਾਂਝੀ ਕਰਨੀ ਚਾਹੀਦੀ ਹੈ, ਤੇ ਇਸ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਨਾਲ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਦੇ ਭੈ  ਵਿੱਚ ਰਹਿ ਕੇ ਨਿੰਦਿਆ ਕਰਨ ਦੇ ਗੰਭੀਰ ਪਾਪ ਤੋਂ ਬਚਣਾ ਚਾਹੀਦਾ ਹੈ।

ਕੁਝ ਲੋਕ ਯੂ.ਕੇ. ਦੀ ਦਮਦਮੀ ਟਕਸਾਲ ਤੇ 'ਸਤਿਕਾਰ ਕਮੇਟੀ' ਦੇ ਭਾਈ ਮਨਵੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੇ ਬਾਈਕਾਟ ਬਾਰੇ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖ਼ਤ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਦੇ ਪੱਤਰ ਦਾ ਅੰਗਰੇਜ਼ੀ ਅਨੁਵਾਦ ਸਾਂਝਾ ਕਰ ਰਹੇ ਹਨ, ਪਰ ਇਹ ਗੱਲ ਸਪਸ਼ਟ ਨਹੀਂ ਕਰ ਰਹੇ ਹਨ ਕਿ ਕਿਸ ਮਨਵੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਯੂ.ਕੇ. ਦੀ ਗੱਲ ਹੋ ਰਹੀ ਹੈ। ਇਸ ਦੇ ਨਤੀਜੇ ਵਜੋਂ ਜਾਣੇ-ਅਣਜਾਣੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਦਾਸ ਬਾਰੇ ਗਲਤ ਜਾਣਕਾਰੀ ਅਤੇ ਭੰਬਲਭੂਸਾ ਫੈਲਾ ਰਹੇ ਹਨ।

ਰੱਬ ਹੀ ਰਾਖਾ!

Confusion over the name of "Bhai Manvir Singh UK" । "ਭਾਈ ਮਨਵੀਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਯੂ.ਕੇ." ਦੇ ਨਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਭੰਬਲਭੂਸਾ...

Knowing that people hide behind fake IDs to post utter nonsense and lies to defame others is nothing new for me and the rest of the world! People who do such stupid things are either mentally ill or suffer from jealousy and hatred! May Vaheguru bless them with wisdom and sense! People make up lies, however, this tops them all! Now, even Sri Akal Takht Sahib has not been spared. I've read that I ("Bhai Manvir Singh UK") I am boycotted by Sri Akal Takht Sahib because I have apparently set up a 'Satkaar Commitee' and collected money under false pretenses and committed acts of Beadbi (sacrilege) of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Saroops whilst doing restoration Seva.


The letter (Aadesh) from Sri Akal Takht Sahib is addressed to Baba Sangh Gurdwara Smethwick (Birmingham, UK) and reads that Manvir Singh UK who has set up Satkaar Commitee, has failed to respond and satistfy Sri Akal Takht Sahib for accusations of committing acts of Beadbi (disrespect) of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji whilst doing Seva under the organization of Satkaar Committee UK, and also of financial dishonesty in raising money for the cause of Satkaar Committee. Even though I don't live in Birmingham nor a member of Satkaar Committee UK, let alone setting it up, when I first read the letter, I thought "I hope no one stupidly thinks that this Manvir Singh is me!"


On Sunday, whilst attening France Smaagam I recieved a message from someone with a forwarded link to Facebook. The video had a picture of Giani Harpreet Singh and over and below the picture it said in Panjabi, "Jathedar's appeal to the Sangat to boycott Manvir Singh UK." When I clicked on the link, I saw photos of me flashing throughout the short clip, whilst the the written lies were repeated. The video lacked information and context, which made it highly suspicous and seemed like a clear attempt to defame me, and something that people who lack sense, breed jealously or feed off hate thought this is an opportunity to share and spread more nonsense and false information about me.


To clarify to anyone who hasn't already understood, Bhai Manvir Singh UK mentioned in the letter of Akal Takht Sahib belongs to Damdami Taksal UK, is Head of Satkaar Committee UK, and lives in Birmingham, UK. This particular Bhai Manvir Singh also has the alias names of 'Manipal,' 'Manna,' and 'Manbir Singh.' There is sometime confusion in the Sangat as they are known with different names.

I am thankful to the officials of Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee who took swift action and contacted the original Facebook page posting the above video and got it removed. Although the video was removed, it has had over 6 thousand people view it and loads of people sharing it! People should be more responsible and have fear of Vaheguru and the result of nindia (defamation/ slander)!

Some people are sharing English translation of Sri Akal Takht Sahib’s letter about the boycott of Bhai Manvir Singh of Damdami Taksaal UK/Satkaar Committee UK, but are not specifying which Manvir Singh UK they are talking about. As a result of which people are knowingly or unknowingly spreading misinformation and confusion about me.

Don't be scared, he's a Sikh । ਡਰੋ ਨਾ, ਉਹ ਸਿੱਖ ਹੈ...


I was going for an evening walk a week ago, wearing my usual Gurmukhi Bana (traditional Sikh attire). When I got to one road, I was walking and on the side was a house where young children were playing in the front yard. I was wearing my large Kirpan without it being covered with a jacket or cardigan. The children, who seemed aged 4 and 6 years old, saw me and got scared. One of them while pointing at my Kirpan said, "Look, what that man's got!" The other said, "he's got a knife!" 

I stopped, so I could respond to the children. However, the children's elder brother, aged about 10 years, looked at me and then looked at his brother and sister with a smile, and said, "Don't be scared, he's a Sikh." I was shocked to hear this. He went on to say, "He's not got a knife, it's part of his religion and is part of his special uniform... Sikhs are nice people." I said, "how do you know this?" He replied, "You came to our school and gave a talk early this month... I go to Dashwood School..." I then recognized the child. 

The younger children stopped being scared and started to smile and said, "Can you please get it out and show us? Please!" I assume to silence his now excited siblings, the eldest boy told them, "It's not a real dagger, it's just a cover and handle. There's nothing to see. It looks cool though." His response calmed the children down, and I said I had to go now. They all said bye and waved at me. 

I was amazed at how effective a simple school visit could be. I would urge all Sikh brothers and sisters to visit schools and engage with the local community, so barriers of ignorance that lead to fear can be removed.

When a Dutch young man said "If I were a Sikh..." । ਜਦੋਂ ਇੱਕ ਡੱਚ ਨੌਜਵਾਨ ਨੇ ਕਿਹਾ "ਜੇ ਮੈਂ ਸਿੱਖ ਹੁੰਦਾ..."


On Sunday 24th July, my dad and I were at Amsterdam airport, on our way back from Khalsa Camp Europe. My dad had ordered special assistance at the airport. A young white Dutch man greeted us and said that he has been assigned to take us to the gate. He was really friendly and looked happy to see us.

As he was pushing the wheelchair, we all talked to one another. During the conversation, I asked, "Do you know we are Sikhs?" He replied, "Yes, I know you are Sikhs... I study with a Sikh at university and learnt about your people from him. However, other than the Sikh at university I have not seen many Sikhs in the Netherlands." He then went on to say, "You are the warriors of India, you are brave and saintly people... I really respect Sikhs... who wouldn't?"

At the time I was wearing a white Chola (Khalsa dress), a white Hazooria around my neck, blue coloured Dastaar and Khanda on Dastaar. He looked at me and said, "If I were a Sikh I would always wear what you are wearing. Your appearance shines respect. You have lots to be proud of, and therefore, if I were a Sikh, not saying I am going to become one, but if I were a Sikh, I would definitely wear my robes all the time with pride and respect." I was overwhelmed by this young white Dutch man's admiration for Sikhi and Bana (Khalsa dress). I felt perhaps this man had more respect and admiration for Bana than most young Sikhs of today who would rather wear jeans and a t-shirt than wear the traditional dress of Bana.

When we got to the gate, the conversation had reached about Gurdwaras. I was sharing with him how there is a Gurdwara in Amsterdam and it is open to all and how we have Langar. He was so impressed with the concept of Langar and the spiritual lessons behind it. He said, "You Sikhs are truly wonderful people who have so much to give to the world. Your religion is beautiful." At this point, he thanked both my dad and me for the conversation and said goodbye.
