Nagar kirtans in broad daylight still make me more uncomfortable rather than give a feeling of spirituality . I know it sounds really ridiculous and to a point, insulting also, but my intention is not to insult . But growing up I think , even in india, I felt sikhs were treated as outsiders. The constant joking, and embarassment , I only used to like nagar kirtans when they were early dawn, but once it got sunrise I used to feel uneasy. "What are all these people going to think about us ?" "Do they find us amusing because so many of people in procession wearing only chola and kachhera.?" "Will they laugh at us ? Do they find us amusing people who forgot to put on their pyajamas" I used to feel embarass when they would shout jaikare (Bole so nihal , sat sri akal) Again I don't wish to sound rude, but I just share my personal experience . This is how I felt ! I respect sikhism but I find public marches of our faith uncomfortable. Again sorry, I don't wish to sound anti-sikh . I am not. Now you can also call it result of brainwashing campaign of indian govt to make sikh youth feel ashamed of their culture. I don't know if I sound incoherent but I have felt like this and still do , but at the same time I feel elated whenever someone respect sikhs. Do I have inferiority complex or low self-confidence which I project onto the community ?
