There were 4 Sardars in Mumbai. They decided to start a business.

They had a lot of discussions on the type of business and finally decided to start a hotel.

They selected the best of locations and cooks and built the hotel.

The hotel was inaugrated and was awaiting its first customer.

The Sardars waited and waited but nobody turned up.

The story was the same the next day. A week passed but noboby turned up.


Bcos there was a sign at the entrance "Visitors not allowed."

After the failure of their hotel they decided to start an auto garage.

They bought the best of car servicing equipments and soon started the garage.

The 4 Sardars waited that day for the first car to arrive but no car entered their Garage.

They waited for one day, 2 days ,a week but no car came to their garage.


B`cos their garage was on the first floor.

After this failure they decided to fall back on the good old taxi driving.

They bought a new Premier Padmini running on CNG and began to look for passengers.

They drew past Churchgate but nobody hailed their taxi.

They went to Nariman point yet nobody hailed their taxi.

They drove to Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus, even there nobody hailed their taxi.

In desperation they kept on driving all around Mumbai but alas no one hailed their taxi.


B`cos all the four Sardars were sitting in the taxi.

All the 4 Sardars were very disgusted with their naseeb and decided to push their taxi into the sea at Marine Lines.

They started pushing their taxi.

They pushed the whole day and were very exhausted but the taxi did not move even an inch.

They decided to rest for the night and start the next day.

The next day the story repeated itself.

The taxi just wouldn`t move.

They pushed for a whole week but the taxi wouldn`t budge.


B`cos two sardarjis were pushing from front and two from behind

We can firmly visualise that NONE of the Avatars/Prophets/Gurus/Masters (if they
were physically present in today's times) would advocate making fun of any other religion.

I believe that we must remember that various religions at the core talk about oneness
of humanity & advocation of human rights.

Let us ask ourselves a simple question - can we be happy when jokes are cracked on
things/people with whom "our" sentiments are attached (Eg: our Parents, Gods, Gurus,
Motherland, Freedom Fighters, etc)

Jokes on "Sardars" are made/cracked mostly by those who do not know Indian history
(500 years old). Here are few facts from Indian history:

a) Sikhs were popularly called Sardars (means Leader in English) because they
volunteered as Leaders (during the difficult times of Mughal oppression) -- Leaders who
first Lead themselves to be Universally "Empathetic" Human Beings & then Lead
groups to defend against tyranny.

b) The Holy Book of Sikhs (which they regard as a Living Guru) contains Holy Hymns
by Sikh Gurus & by Enlightened Saints of "different" Sects including Hindus &
Enlightenment of every religion is equally respected in Sikhism, considering all as

c) 1st Sikh Guru (Guru Nanak) advocated that Hindu & Muslims should live in peace.
Guru Nanak advocated that -- just by calling a FLOWER by different NAMEs does not
change it's FRAGRANCE -- similarly, calling God with Different Names / Ideas /
Ideologies does not change God's Roles or Properties or Laws !

d) On his many years long journeys to spread knowledge & enlightenment, Guru Nanak
Ji travelled on foot with his Muslim companion named Bhai Mardana, a minstrel.

e) Two Sikh Gurus suffered tortures & sacrificed there lives to prevent Hindus from
being forcibly converted by some tyrant rulers. Gurus saw it as the suppression of
"freedom to practice one's own religion".

f) The Sikhs took up to dress in unique "attires" (Hair, Beard, Bangle, Kirpan, Turban...)
so that they could be distinguished as defenders of humanity -- just as police
"uniforms" today are meant to distinguish persons who are defenders of law.
