    Three sons left home, went out on their own and prospered.
    Getting back together, they discussed the gifts they were able to give
    their elderly mother. The first said, "I built a big house for our
    mother."

    The second said," I sent her a Mercedes with a driver."

    The third smiled and said, "I've got you, both beat. You
    know how Mom enjoys the Bible, and you know she can't see very well. I
    sent her a parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took 20 monks
    in a monastery 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to
    contribute $100,000.00 a year for 10 years, but it was worth it. Mom
    just has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it.

    "Soon thereafter, Mom sent out her letters of thanks:
    "Milton," she wrote the first son, "the house you built is so huge. I live
    in only one room, but have to clean the whole house."

    "Marvin," she wrote to another, "I am too old to travel. I
    stay home all the time, so I never use the Mercedes, and
    the driver is so rude!"

    "Dearest Melvin," she wrote to her third son, "You were the
    only son to have the good sense to know what your mother
    likes, that chicken was delicious."

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!
