As in the manner of all things formal, an intoduction is necessary and initial; my name (for this forum) is Legumes, and hello to you all. Of course this is not my real name, but I would like to tell you that: I am a 17 year old male coming from devout Sikh parents, I kept my hair until I was 13 and for reasons unknown to myself, I cut it. My understanding of the basic tenets of Sikhi is solid, but my belief in them has wavered for years. Up until now; something has recently awakened in me, and that is disgust at the RSS, in particular this website: http://www.info-sikh.com/PageRSS1.html Well, a recent discussion about Britishness concluded that it was born out of its differences with the French; and so is my interest in Sikhi; with the differences with Hindus. Am I getting back into Sikhi for the wrong reasons?
