    My friend Kane’s father was a television repairman in the 1950’s. One day Herman went out on a house call to service the TV of an old man named Jake, who lived alone. Herman found that Jake’s television was missing a tube, which he replaced in a few moments. Then Herman spent about 20 minutes chatting amiably with Jake.
    Three days later Jake called Herman to fix the same television. This time a different tube was missing. Herman replaced the tube and hung out with Jake for another little while.
    Several days later Jake again reported that his TV was on the blink. This time a different tube was missing. It did not take Herman long to figure out that the Jake himself was removing the tubes. He just wanted some company. …▲

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!
