S.W.A.T.: Start year by doing something good!

S.W.A.T. team

I don't know how I found this group Help the SOUTHALL SIKH Homeless S.W.A.T on Facebook but somehow it's very close to my heart... I always wanted to volunteer and I have a lot of respect for those people who go on the streets and help...
Did you know there are over 100 young men from Punjab living on the streets of Southall? These people live in dustbins, cemetery's, under the bridges and etc. To read more go to:
Please donate to SWAT (Help the SOUTHALL SIKH Homeless - S.W.A.T) They have now set up a PAYPAL account to accept donations: please email with the amount you would like to donate. Contact info:s5dhillon@aol.com07943118441

There should be many reasons why these people are on the streets... One of them could be Indian students facing desperate times in the UK Very good article!

No comment day

If u think that u are tired, u are really tired.
If u think u couldn't, it means u will not.
If u want to win but u think
u will not,u probably lose.
In life battles not always will win
most strong and fast-thinking,
but soon or later win
that who was thinking that he is able to do it.

Happy Diwali from Gori Sikh!

Happy Diwali 2009 to all my readers and fellow bloggers! Last year I saw my first Diwali in India and it was crazy. The sky was white at the night from fireworks and local area was like New Year's Eve in Latvia. Beautiful! Golden Temple in Amritsar was unbelievable beatiful place to be (that year sikhs celebrated the release from prison of the sixth guru, Guru Hargobind Ji). I wish I was there with my Indian family!
