Last night, I watched a repeat of a documentary initially marking the twentieth, and repeated to mark the twenty-fifth, anniversary of the miners’ strike. Not for the first time, I was struck by the admirable qualities of the Sikhs.
I have no sympathy for any second, bloody partition of the Punjab in order to create Khalistan; but then, who has, these days? And I don’t agree with them theologically, of course. But within the world as it shows every sign of remaining for rather a while yet, Sikhs, I feel, are a Good Thing.
