This picture (although not in Britain) builds my Sharda for Maharaj. In the time of war Singh's carrying Maharaj and keeping Sharda for Maharaj. It's beautiful

Watch this, the Sakhi is incredible!

Had they not been slave soldiers, history of Punjab would have been much different.

Sikhs were able to uproot the Mughuls despite innumerable odds by fighting against them.

They could have thrown the pommies out too had they done the same instead of fighting for them.

It seemed for some time, Floral patterned turbans seemed to be quite fashionable.

When my dad lived in Southall in the 1960s, he told me all the goreh wore three colours: black, grey and brown. We brought some bright colours to the UK.
