Ignorance Is Bliss


Back in the 90s I was living in Swindon and the locals were in uproar because the local Sikh community were given permission to build a temple. One of my work colleagues at the time even ran as a Conservative counsellor for the sole purpose of wanting to prevent the temple being built. I now hear on the local news that the same Sikhs, on hearing that a homeless man had died on the streets of Swindon, have started a Seva (service) project to feed the homeless and down-and-outs. They even vary the menu and lay on stuff like pizza and pasta. It’s really strange in this life that quite often the people who we hate for no apparent reason are the people who bring us the greatest lessons in human values…
