I Am Sikh

Khushwant Singh told a friend:

“Once I was travelling from Mumbai to Singapore. A woman sitting next seat continued looking at me. I understood that this lady had never seen a Sardar before. Midway in the flight when the tea and snacks were served, I struck a conversation with the lady. Her name was Margarita and she belonged to Spain. During the conversation, she asked, “what are you?” I replied, “I am Sikh.” “I am sorry,” said the young lady, “hope you get well soon.” To this I replied,”no dear, I am not sick as that of the body, I am Sikh as of religion.” The lady was very pleased and shook hands with me and said, “it is nice meeting you, I am also sick of religion.” ”
