Sardarji community and we

A TRUE STORY........In the Diwali vacation, Jayant and his couple of friends had gone to Delhi. They rented a taxi for local sight-seeing. The driver was an old Sardar, and Jayant and his pals began cracking Sardarji jokes, just to insinuate the old man.

But to their surprise, the fellow remained unperturbed. At the end of the sight-seeing, they paid up the hire-charges.

The Sardar returned the change. Moreover, he gave each one of them one rupee extra and said, (in Hindi, of course), ''Son, since morning you have been telling Sardarji jokes. I listened to them all and let me tell you, some of them were in a very bad taste. Still, I don't mind coz I know that you are young blood and are yet to see the world.

But I have just one request. Here I am giving you one rupee each. Give it to the first Sardar beggar that you come across."

Jayant continued," That one rupee coin is still with me. I couldn't find a single Sardar begging on the streets anywhere"

Friends, we all love Sardar jokes. But the fact of matter is that Sikhs are one of the most prosperous and diversified communities in the world. The secret behind their universal success, according to me, is their willingness to do any job with utmost dedication.

A Sardar will drive a truck or set up a roadside garage or a dhaba, but he will never beg on the streets. Infact, I found that in CANADA SIKHS are among most prosperous of all communities.
