"fareeda khak na nindiye/ khaku jed na koye/ jiwendeyan pairan taley/ moyan ooper hoye". This is one of the toughest shabads to implement in day-to-day life. Although, prejudice isn't exactly nindya but it is a step right before that. Once we form an opinion about a person, it is very easy to fall into nindya. This is why Baba Farid reminds us to slander not even dirt ... I am truly moved by this post. Not because it's a great story. Quite honestly, being a regular reader, I knew there was a catch as to why Jim would't speak. I am moved by the story because you stand way taller than me as a Sikh. You have publicly acknowledged your shortcoming. May Waheguru bless you with naam simran so that you can fight the five demons every day ...

Another fine example of how first impressions aren't always right. I myself have had experiences where what I thought was 'attitude' or some sort of reservation to open up turned out to be something totally unrelated, sometimes even shocking!

You've made me cry.

What a great finale! ... Without interaction, we never find out!

5: D.J. Singh (U.S.A.), May 05, 2012, 5:14 AM.

I am speechless.

T. Sher Singh ji, I always gain something from your articles, you always leave me moved. Thank you for sharing!

It's a very good read. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thank you! Re-learned it again the other way!

What you see may not be what it is. Thanks for the unusual and beautiful lessons to be learnt from it.

It was neither pride nor prejudice. Simply misjudged, misplaced, misconstrued stereo-typing ... things we should all try not to engage in until evidence proves otherwise.

I coined a phrase for such situations a long time ago in my youth: "What seems to be the case may not be the reality; what seems to be the reality may not be the case at all." Stereo-typing is dangerous and can actually lead to disastrous consequences. Sikh men are the most common victims of stereotypes and suffer various forms of violence due to the current state of affairs around the world. An excellent article and good journalism that aims to inform and entertain.
