Apologies for the lack of posts in the last couple weeks. Schedule has been hectic and my laptop is increasingly difficult to lug around.
Since my last post I have visited Boston – the city’s leaves were right in the middle of changing colors and the atmosphere was just beautiful.
I had the pleasure of interviewing a diversity of Sikhs in Boston. Perhaps the most poignant stories came from previously non-Sikhs who came to the faith through their own means – through self-discovery and information they gathered from classes or peers, not through a particular figure or because they were born into the faith. Their take on Sikhi was culture-free and focused on principles and values and gurbani. It was refreshing to speak with these individuals.
I am now in North Carolina and am looking forward to the stories I encounter here!
Peace to you,
