The world knows that Sikhs are now a global presence. There is no country or continent where they are not. True that they are largely, if not entirely, immigrants from the Punjab and India. They are and remain a small minority wherever they live, even in India.
It often frustrates us as also our non-Sikh neighbours who see us unduly preoccupied with the home (India) that we came from. This doesn’t really surprise me? As an immigrant to America I see that all immigrants, be they Italian, Polish, Germans Irish, Jews or Brand X, spend a generation or more with such preoccupations. Home is where the heart is and for a generation the heart still longs for the home it has abandoned, with much energy consumed in trying to recreate it.
