    Describe yourself in one word: Inspired

    Why will you run the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon?

    I'm running the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon to challenge the stereotypes that drive us apart and to show people why I believe the New York City Marathon truly brings the world together. I want people to see me for who I am -- a Sikh American -- and recognize me for my humanity and as a representative of America’s culture. I am excited to run by the tens of thousands of supporters who will cheer as I run through the streets of NYC and perhaps for the first time, connect with and appreciate someone who looks like me. I am running this race because, after a rash of violent hate crimes targeting Muslims and Sikhs in this city, I want to show people that I am not afraid, and that I will embrace them and encourage them to do the same. I want to show everyone that I love this city, and that its diversity is its greatest asset. In short, I want to run the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon to send a message to everyone in the running community that we can lead the pack and celebrate and ensure a diverse and united community.

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!
