In this forum we have discussed many topics-some pertaining to hair,,1984, sikh personalities,etc ,etc.But we have never discussed the real issuesWe have always turned a blind eye to situations which need our attention the most.Be it an ailing kid with a hole in the heart or be it this old man-who has been abandoned by his own kids. The old man stays in Chandigarh-home to many prosperous and educated Sikhs.But Alas!!! No one has given this old man shelter.Forget shelter..The gurdwaras have done nothing Is this is how its supposed to be. Where r those ppl who used to take initiatives and indulge in selfless acts.. I still believe in Waheguru but whenever I see/read these things , I begin to loose faith in what I have always believed in/ I wear a turban and keep my beard.I have never ever even thought about loosing my identity cos I am proud to be a sikh and I am aware of the sacrifcies made by our Gurus and his brave Khalsa.But we r letting it all go in vain as we do not even care for our fellow brothers and sisters. I am still a student so can,t directly indulge myself in any kind of seva.But even the Gurdwara's refuse to help those in need.So I wonder... Whats the use of Langar when fellow men ( not just Sikhs but anyone irrespective of class,caste,etc)) fails to act at the tme of need.? Whats the use of doing seva during Gurpurabs and other festivals when we can;t even take care of our own brothers and sisters? Whats the use of calling ourselves Sikhs when we have failed miseably as human beings?
