India Farm Laws revoked: How #Sikhs captured the imagination of a nation

Even for someone who belongs to Punjab, this was an unforgettable lesson in sewa (service, although no English word can truly encompass the word and the selfless intent behind it) by a community whose indomitable spirit of perseverance has been unparallel once again in the last year- through a harsh winter, a brutal summer and the unpredictability of a pandemic.Over time Punjabis have been at the receiving end of deprecating stereotypes- from butter chicken at breakfast to happy hour with whiskey pegs on the head – the jokes are endless, the humour stale. Boisterous ‘chak de’ slogans at a match make the Punjabi cringe as does the belief that a Karan Johar movie resides in all our homes.
