Sikh temple, Delhi

At the Sikh temple in Delhi with appropriate headgear. The spokesman there was very helpful and informative, even if our conversation got off to a slightly disjointed start; as I heard it:

Sikh: Do you smoke cigarettes? [He actually said: Do you know about Sikhism?]
Me: No, I don't smoke.
Sikh: What would you like to know about cigarettes?
Me: What would I like to know about cigarettes?
My wife: Sikhism.
Sikh: Yes, we talk about Sikhism now, not cigarettes.
Me: Oh, Sikhism. I don't know much about it.

You really ought to subordinate your addictive impulses to the important needs of the moment.
In any event, thanks for sharing the pix, Ken. I'm glad you made it out of that snake-ridden temple (the earlier one -- not the cigarette one).
