    Aman ji,

    This is wonderful. It reminds me of a news article where Sikh soldiers in the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon taught kids in a war torn neighborhood yoga.

    It makes the "other" side human and a source of fun, a break from the misery. :yes:

    His accent makes him sound like an American.

    So what makes me really happy about this is that the US Armed Forces is really a diverse group and the GI feels comfortable expressing his cultural identity and sharing it with kids in Iraq.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
