Rediff.com is reporting (in a very untimely manner) on a Sikh Heritage dinner that took place on Capitol Hill last month. The dinner, organized by the Sikh Council on Religion and Education (commonly known as "SCORE"), was attended by over 300 guests and featured some very prominent speakers, including Senators Richard Lugar and Hillary Rodham Clinton, Congressmen Tom Davis, Jim McDermott, Frank Pallone, Rush Holt, and Joe Crowley.
In her remarks, Senator Clinton noted, "I am delighted to be the Senator from Punjab as well as from New York. It is always a pleasure and an honor to represent so many of my Sikh American constituents in New York."
I had the pleasure of being invited to this high-powered dinner, and was delighted that these Senators and Congressmen offered very uplifting comments regarding the character and accomplishments of the Sikh community in the United States. (On the other hand, I have never heard so many butchered "Sat Sri Akals" in my life -- "A" for effort, I suppose.)
