 Scholars please correct factual errors, if any. 

But the point of interest for me is about the culture and the mindset: The minority syndrome, the willingness to unshackle ourselves of our past, accept the reality, and NOT wait for the angels to come and change our fate; to take the reigns of our destiny in our own hands. 

There I admire the Sardars more. 

[That there are no Sardar beggars clearly is an exaggeration] 

Real Eye-opener::::

We all love Sardar jokes. But see this unknown facts....

During the last vacation, few friends came to Delhi . They rented a taxi for local sight-seeing. The driver was an old Sardar and boys being boys, these pals began cracking Sardarji jokes, just to tease the old man. But to their surprise, the fellow remained unperturbed..

At the end of the sight-seeing, they paid the cab hire charges. The Sardar returned the change, but he gave each one of them one rupee extra and said, ''Sons, since morning you have been telling Sardarji jokes. I listened to them all and let me tell you, some of them were in bad taste. Still, I don't mind coz I know that you are young blood and are yet to see the world. But I have one request. I am giving you one rupee each. Give it to the first Sardar beggar that you come across in this or any other city !!!"

The friends said, "That one rupee coin is still with us. We couldn't find a single Sardar begging anywhere."

The secret behind their universal success is their willingness to do any job with utmost dedication and pride. A Sardar will drive a truck or set up a roadside garage or a dhaba, run a fruit juice stall, take up small time carpentry, ... but he will never beg on the streets 

Because Sikhs contribute: 

* 33% of total income tax
* 67% of total charities
* 45% of Indian Army 
* 59,000++ Gurudwaras serve LANGAR to 6,000,000+ people everyday! 

All this when THEY make only 1.4% of the total INDIAN POPULATION.

And they don't ask for reservation. - Amazing living examples for all of us.
