I have been bickering back and forth with spnadmin ji about this news story which is now more than a week old. Spnadmin ji has doubts about the value of this story. I, who am only now recovering from a fractured skull and concussion, and hope to be back soon with my Haanji threads, should not be getting worked up. Our bickering is not good for my recovery. Nonetheless, spnadmin ji has consented to my posting this article as long as I also post her basic reaction to it. "Forget about the 'lust' discussion raging on baba derawale facebook pages. The thing that bothers me (spnadmin ji) is the message, "Keep a beard, tie a turban, and be a chick magnet !!!!" That is the part that bothers spnadmin ji however there would be many Singhs who would not mind. GAP Holiday 2013 Ad Campaign Features Turbaned Sikh http://www.voiceonline.com/gap-holiday-2013-ad-campaign-features-turbaned-sikh/ Over the last several days, many shoppers around North America were surprised to find Waris Ahluwalia staring them in the face at the mall, in flyers, and in magazine ads this week. The Sikh American actor/designer/model is apparently being featured in clothing retailer Gap‘s current national marketing campaign. It’s a safe assumption that Gap has not entered the retail market for turbans, but it might be interesting to walk into your nearest Gap store, point to the poster, and advise the salesperson that you’ll wear what he’s wearing. Some of the familiar faces in the campaign are Waris Ahluwalia, actress Malin Akerman, Q-Tip, and Harry Belafonte. Waris Ahluwalia is an Indian-American designer and actor. Born in Amritsar (Punjab) he later moved to New York at the age of five. His company, House of Waris, is based out of New York and has collaborated with a number of other designers and artists throughout the years. House of Waris came into being after the owners of Maxfield’s in Los Angeles noticed Ahluwalia’s elaborate diamond rings and placed an order, which sold out.
