I took a day off to participate in Nagar Kirtan which happened on April 19 in my city Surrey . As I work as transit operator and my second reason to take a bus instead of driving my car was to avoid the hassle to find a parking spot and frustration to get out of the traffic at the end of day.I took lot of pictures thinking that I will share it with my friends . But what happened in the bus when I was coming back home was so soul touching that I couldn’t stop myself to write this.Despite of cold weather and rain I seen 5 Singh and 5 ( piaray ) loved ones, were walking bare feet in front of Guru sahib float . They had to walk at least 7 hours like that .For me it was great faith and dedication but somehow my mind wasn’t ready to accept it . Is it really needed or necessary ? Why can’t they have shoes on ? My mind sometime makes me think !!!!I was the last person to get in the bus . There was a poor man sitting on left side the bus , I sat on the right side opposite to him . On the next stop, Muslim guy came in the bus and sat beside me . I felt that he want to start conversation but I kept playing with my phone to avoid it but not to ignore him. Before he got off the bus , this Muslim guy took his shoes off including his socks , he pushed toward this poor fellow . Saying that it’s ok . Take it . I live close by . Don’t worry about me . After saying that he quickly got off the bus, not even giving this poor man chance to say Thanks .I grabbed my phone and took two pictures . One this guy putting shoes on ( I noticed he had his feet wrapped in plastic bags and had no shoes . And I also took the picture of Muslim man who was walking home bare feet .What a great human being .His bare feet walking home was so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes.

Anonymous asked: How can you Sikhs be so loving and open to us Muslims? My community calls you infidels, and believes you'll burn in hellfire, yet how can you guys still treat us with brotherhood? I feel truly blessed to know Sikhs such as yourself.

ਅਵਲਿ ਅਲਹ ਨੂਰੁ ਉਪਾਇਆ ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਕੇ ਸਭ ਬੰਦੇ ॥
ਏਕ ਨੂਰ ਤੇ ਸਭੁ ਜਗੁ ਉਪਜਿਆ ਕਉਨ ਭਲੇ ਕੋ ਮੰਦੇ ॥੧॥

Aval Allah Noor Oupaaeiaa Qudharath Kae Sabh Bandhae ||
Eaek Noor Thae Sabh Jag Oupajiaa Koun Bhalae Ko Mandhae ||1||

First, Allah created the Light; then, by His Creative Power, He made all mortal beings.
From the One Light, the entire universe welled up. So who is good, and who is bad? ||1||

When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody notices, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.

“I hate the indifferent. I believe that living means taking sides. Those who really live cannot help being a citizen and a partisan. Indifference and apathy are parasitism, perversion, not life. That is why I hate the indifferent.

The indifference is the deadweight of history. The indifference operates with great power on history. The indifference operates passively, but it operates. It is fate, that which cannot be counted on. It twists programs and ruins the best-conceived plans. It is the raw material that ruins intelligence. That what happens, the evil that weighs upon all, happens because the human mass abdicates to their will; allows laws to be promulgated that only the revolt could nullify, and leaves men that only a mutiny will be able to overthrow to achieve the power. The mass ignores because it is careless and then it seems like it is the product of fate that runs over everything and everyone: the one who consents as well as the one who dissents; the one who knew as well as the one who didn’t know; the active as well as the indifferent. Some whimper piously, others curse obscenely, but nobody, or very few ask themselves: If I had tried to impose my will, would this have happened?

I also hate the indifferent because of that: because their whimpering of eternally innocent ones annoys me. I make each one liable: how they have tackled with the task that life has given and gives them every day, what have they done, and especially, what they have not done. And I feel I have the right to be inexorable and not squander my compassion, of not sharing my tears with them.

I am a partisan, I am alive, I feel the pulse of the activity of the future city that those on my side are building is alive in their conscience. And in it, the social chain does not rest on a few; nothing of what happens in it is a matter of luck, nor the product of fate, but the intelligent work of the citizens. Nobody in it is looking from the window of the sacrifice and the drain of a few. Alive, I am a partisan. That is why I hate the ones that don’t take sides, I hate the indifferent.”

"Why should some people walk barefoot, so that others can travel in luxurious cars? Why should some live for thirty-five years, so that others can live for seventy years? Why should some be miserably poor, so that others can be hugely rich? I speak on behalf of the children in the world who do not have a piece of bread. I speak on the behalf of the sick who have no medicine, of those whose rights to life and human dignity have been denied."
