    perhaps something in the health care industry? it's seva, of sorts. :) at 17, i'm not sure what you can do... maybe Nurses Aide, or working in the kitchen or in hospitality (janitorial)? coincidentally my first job was working in the kitchen in a nursing home. it paid well and i felt like i was doing some amount of good in the world (though i may have been deluded), and they weren't terribly concerned with appearances...

    if you don't care about getting paid, i can think of a hundred jobs. but if you want money, it's tougher at your age to find a job where you can get away with wearing what you want. when you get a degree in some useful field, people stop caring so much about whether you wear a turban and whatnot.

    maybe try starbucks? they seem to hire lots of interesting people... :D

    Big bully Sinister, will you stop being so 'sinister' and leave Veerji alone.

    If you like it so much and or cant help yourself then go stand infront of a mirror and speak to yourself. Who knows your double ganger(doppelganger) might like it and both of you can live happily ever after in your atheist world.

    Interests include cooking (leisurely), reading, india, languages, religion, physical activity, growing plants (i'm growing my own pineapples)... etc...

    Pretty basic, just like everyone elses

    have you considered looking for a job at a garden center or nursery? not all of the jobs there involve people, some just involve taking care of plants. :) or you could volunteer with your local parks and rec service, they usually need people to do park/trail maintenance.

    see if your local library needs paiges... that's always a cool job. :)

    i can guarantee that the local gurdwara can always use a hand... maybe you can help out with the landscaping, put two of your interests together?

    there are so many opportunities out there... it's just a matter of deciding what you WANT to do. don't worry, if you don't like it, you can always change your mind. :)

    Nah those are unique talents. and they branch off into smaller ones. For example if you like physical activity, then what kind? How? There's dancing, running, sports, weithtraining, aerobics, cycling, <insert more stuff here> So maybe you could get a job where you're lifting stuff all the time. If you get a good basic understanding of Sikhism. Maybe you could teach in a Gurudwara. I have done that before. Could also get a simple job in a restaurant.

    Do I like cooking? No. Reading? Sikhism, science and philosophy. India? NO. Languages? maybe. religion? yes. Physical activity? working out. Growing plants? No.

    See, i dont do half of that stuff. So they are not everyone has those talents/interests.

    My sincere advice to you is do anything.Work hard and honestly please do not associate
    sikhism with work.Accept any kind of work given by god to you.At present may be you could find difficuilty but if you work hard and honestly then your employer too will be happy
    with you.And If one day he/she could ask you that you are good employee then tell him it is your religion that have told you to work hard and honestly.In this way your work will also be related to sikhism
