Why This Midwestern Man Became A Sikh Religious Leader (And Can't Stop Smiling About It)
On her YouTube channel, Bollywood actress and host Shenaz Treasuryvala introduces us to a unique stranger she meets on her travels across the globe. This week's episode teaches us that life is not about where you come from, it's about where you want to go. In Shenaz's home country of India, it's not unusual to see these religious leaders, known as Sikhs, walking the streets wearing turbans and traditional cotton garments. But on her trip to Puerto Rico, she spots a Sikh who did not seem to be from Indian descent and decided to approaches him to learn more about his story of becoming a Sikh. Turns out this religious guru originates from the Midwestern part of the United States and was introduced to the Sikh religion through meditation. The story of his unusual transformation certainly made us smile but our favorite part of the interview had to be when he refers to his wife as a radiant goddess. Guess that could explain why he's been happily married to his college sweetheart for 20 years!
