We all love those santa-banta jokes.But do you know that sikhs are one of the most hard-working and prosperous communities of the world.

After reading this real life incident, you might also consider it as true.It has had a deep impact on my thinking.

Last year, my friend invited his cousins on his sister's wedding to Delhi.They traveled all the way from Shimla.On their arrival, all of them decided to hire a taxi for local sight-seeing.The driver was an aged-Sardar and the boys being boys, began cracking sardar ji (santa-banta) jokes just to tease the old man.But, to their surprise, the fellow(sardarji) remained normal.

At the end of sight-seeing, they paid the driver cab hire-charges.The sardarji returned the change, but gave each of them one rupee extra, and said, "Son, since morning you have been cracking jokes on sardars, I listened all of them and let me tell you, most of them were in bad taste.But I still dont mind, because I feel that you are young blood, and are yet to see this world.But, I have one request, I am giving you all one rupee each, give it to the first 'SARDAR BEGGAR' that you see in this or any other city.

That one rupee coin is still with my friend as he could not find a single sardar 'begging' in the city!



The secret behind their universal success is their willingness to do any job with the utmost dedication and pride.A sardar will drive a truck or setup a roadside garage or a Dhaba, put a fruit juice stall, take up small time carpentry , BUT WILL NEVER BEG ON THE STREETS!


Do tell this story to all your friends and make them feel how hardworking sardars are!
