The seed for the reformation of humanity which was sown by Guru Nanak and watered by his successors, ripened in the time of Guru Gobind Singh and culminated in the creation of the Khalsa. The sword that carved the Khalsa's way to sublime glory was undoubtedly forged by Guru Gobind Singh but its steel was provided by Guru Nanak. From the moment of its initiation by Guru Nanak to its consecration by the tenth Master, Guru Gobind Singh, a period of years, Sikhism acquired its holy scripture, signs and symbols, and unmistakable form or stance. Transformation from one Guru to the other happened in the same way as one lamp were to lit from another.
Fundamentals of Sikhism
Most children accept such nonsense without question. From our short hair, to our penchant for beefburgers, to our inability to name the Ten Gurus of Sikh history, we probably would have been found unacceptable by any truly Sikh family. But then puberty arrived, and I developed a crush on a Muslim guy in our circle of friends. The heart, I started to realise, does not follow orders. For people who, by most standards, would be considered decent, liberal and secular, my parents were surprisingly narrow-minded about the kind of men their daughters should consort with.

A humanitarian campaigner was left feeling humiliated when a member of airport security joked about finding a bomb in his turban. Despite feeling hurt by the jibe, Mr Singh says education is a much better way forward than punishment. The founder of Khalsa Aid was changing flights at Vienna International Airport on Friday when he let security staff swab his turban. He walked through the metal detector without setting it off, but a member of staff then insisted on giving his headdress an additional scan with a handheld device.
