We all love Sardarji jokes. But do you know that Sikhs are one of the hardest working prosperous and diversified communities in the world. My friend told me about the following incident which I wish to share with you.

It has had a deep impact on my thinking.

During last vacation, his few friends came to Delhi . They rented a taxi for local sight-seeing. The driver was an old Sardar and boys being boys, these pals began cracking Sardarji jokes, just to tease the old man. But to their surprise, the fellow remained unperturbed.

At the end of the sight-seeing, they paid the cab hire-charges. The Sardar returned the change, but he gave each one of them one rupee extra and said,

“Son, since morning you have been telling Sardarji jokes.. I listened to them all and let me tell you, some of them were in bad taste. Still, I don’t mind coz I know that you are young blood and are yet to see the world..
But I have one request. I am giving you one rupee each. Give it to the first Sardar beggar that you come across in this or any other city.”

My friend continued, “That one rupee coin is still with me. I couldn’t find a single Sardar begging anywhere.”


The secret behind their universal success, is their willingness to do any job with utmost dedication and pride. A Sardar will drive a truck or set up a roadside garage or a dhaba, put a fruit juice stall, take up small time carpentry, … but he will never beg on the streets.

    Sikhs are a great community. I salute them for all that they have done for the country.

    This is very interesting. Yes, when I think about it, I have never come across any beggar who is a sardar, Bikram. My husband worked in a Punjabi cable company for 8 years in the beginning of his career and he always says that they are the most soft natured people, he had ever seen, though they look giant-like. They respect women and love and pamper children as if they are small gods.
