Vahiguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vahiguru Ji Ki Fateh
I am 61 and have just entered a new phase in my life, which is as good an excuse for starting a blog as any I have ever heard.
I write a column called The Man in Blue, which will be regularly posted on this blog. Apart from that I want to get in the habit of writing a public diary of what I have been up to, interesting meetings I had and so on and so forth. My first project will be posting a simple introduction to Sikhi, including some pictures of me in full Sikh outfit.
I am a Sikh, a Dutchman, live in West London where many other Sikhs live too, but my work brings me to all corners of London, and also recently to Scunthorpe, Grimsby, Ipswich, Penrith, Stockton-on-Tees etc etc.
Today I went to Slough to talk to somebody working for the borough council about involving the Sikh, Muslim and Hindu community of Slough in ‘Green Projects’. The person I talked to was 20 years younger than me, but we had a lot in common otherwise, and it was very nice talking to him. More as and when the project progresses (or fails …).
I also went flat hunting in Southall, and found a place that would be ok, right in between the two Singh Sabha Gurdware.
This is the start, more to come, watch this space !
