    Actually that diagram with its caption is so bad it might stand being deleted so that ignorance and stupidity are not spread around the net any more than is already the case.

    ;)

    Kanwaljit ji

    I think you are right about that Yet where is the teacher who should have corrected glaring inaccuracies?

    Awe now I feel kinda bad.

    But like adminji said, where was the assessing teacher?

    I'm not one to dig through pages of google results... I found this last night while doing some google image searches to find a new Sikh wallpaper! My curiosity got the better of me. :kudifacepalm:

    Hahaha Teacher must have thought how could there be a religion without branches? Can someone give forth a unified school of thought? How could anyone go through 1430 angs of Guru Granth Sahib and not find one line conflicting other in any way!

    PS: And she could be one of the smarter kids there!

    I'm not sure what the problem is because if you ask anyone in your neighbourhood in the west (who is not brown/indian), then they will tell you something similar when describing sikh people.
    They will most likely say that there are 2 types, the orthadox one's with turbans & beards, and then the ones with turbans/trimmed beards or haircuts that can hold their drink and can always be spotted in the bars having a good time !

    Some years back I was actively involved in a survey that asked general non-indian citizens 'what they know about sikh people ?'

    The most common answers were-
    -They wear turbans.
    -They wear this steel bangle.
    -They are hard workers always accepting overtime and awkward hours.
    -They have their own business in nearly every field, ie.Doctors, lawyers, accountants, bus drivers, taxi drivers, food stores...etc..
    -They have these great big weddings with loads of free flowing food and liquor!
    - The men can Handle and Hold their drink !
    - They are very friendly and generous
    - They know how to have a good time and party especially when they do that bangra dancing !

    The web page was from a school in the state of Oregon/US.

    I thought that education and interfaith dialog was supposed to overcome stereotypes! Joke is on me and it is not even April 1. Just between you and me, that is more than the average person in the US knows. Leaving the score at UK ? / US almost 0 / State of Oregon In Progress !!!!!!!!!!!!

    We have to roll up our sleeves. There is a lot of work to do!

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!
