Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! I am a long-time lurker on this site, and have just registered. I'm looking for friendly, reasonable discussion about Sikhi and other topics, and this is the forum to go to for that. I am, I think, the only gora Sikh convert in Nottingham. I stayed in Derby for a while though, apparently there are a couple more there and in other nearby localities. I was born in a non-religious family, but I spent a short period with the Sufis (of the orthodox Qadri type), during which Waheguru ignited the divine love for God, and brought me to Sikhi. I have been attending the Gurdwaras and joining the Sangat for 4-5 years now, learning about what it means to be a Sikh, and now I have decided that I want to make the best of my young age and take Amrit to become a proper, practicing gursikh, hopefully within a year.
