Though I have associated with Sikhs for many decades, I am embarrassed to confess that I only came to fully appreciate ‘Vaisakhi’ last year.

That ‘Vaisakhi’ always coincides with the Sinhala New Year — which is typically on April 14 — makes it even more special and memorable. They are basically both Spring festivals.

In general Sikhs are good people, have good hearts. I like Sikhs.

So, Happy Vaisakhi 2019. Enjoy.

Have We Got This Stupid, Or Are They Trying To Make Us Stupider?

by Anura Guruge



Saw this sign in a church in Wolfeboro on Thursday. They actually had quite a few of these.

OK, maybe it is because it is a church and that God thing etc.

But, HHHmmmm ….

What do most people do when they hear a fire alarm? Light up a fag.

Strange. Very strange. This country is going to pot.

Compassionate 7-Eleven Owner Who Fed Thief, Is Probably More Than An Indian, He Is Likely A Sikh.

This was a GREAT story. It made my day. So good to see that we still have decent, compassionate, charitable folks like he.

Mr. Jay Singh, please take a bow. You have done all of us Asians proud. Good on YOU.

This is from the story:

“He said, ‘I’m hungry. I’m stealing it for myself and my younger brother.’ I said you need food? I’ll give you food. That’s not a problem,” Singh said.

Mr. Singh, modestly, attributed this compassion and charity to ‘Indian culture’. That is true.

But, I have a hunch that it goes beyond that.

I cannot, alas, be 100% sure, but I suspect that Mr. Jay Singh is a sikh — despite the lack of a hat on his head, or a bracelet on his arm.

Jay Singh can very well be a Sikh name.

All ‘Singhs’ are NOT Sikhs, BUT ALL Sikh men are ‘Singhs’. Get that. Having a last name Singh is the norm for a Sikh man.

So, why am I making a big deal that he might be a Sikh.

Sikhs have a deeply ingrained tradition when it comes to charity and giving — especially food to the needy.

I know quite a few Sikhs. Most are AMAZING folk. Generous to a fault.

That bracelet they are supposed to wear bears testament to that. They wear it to remind them that that is the hand with which they do good.

Sikhs, because some wear turbans and have beards, are often mistaken for Muslims. They are not Muslims.

Get to know a Sikh.

This just happens to be a great time to talk about Sikhs. They have a major holiday, ‘Vaisakhi‘, that always coincides with the Sinhala New Year, coming up this Sunday, April 14.
