I donâ€™t think the issue is his tee totaling/clean living; I think itâ€™s his turban and beard. Now you consistently inspire nightmares like last week’s violence against an innocent Sikh cabdriver in Seattle, who was just trying to help an inebriated person get home, per the policeâ€™s request: Trying to escape the attack, the 48-year-old victim stopped in a car pool lane Saturday night on Interstate 5, near Columbian Way, and scrambled out, state troopers said.Today, we received another pained comment, from a different person (These women also cite 9/11 and subsequent discrimination against turbanned men as an excuse to avoid us like the plague. His attacker had punched, choked and bitten him, calling him an “Iraqi terrorist,” according to police reports…The suspect knocked off the victim’s turban and tore out clumps of his hair, according to reports.🙂 Rich: By the way, the white wedding gown, that’s the reason she targeted me. Sandeep: It was important to both of us and our families to respect each others religion.

Sandeep: For me it was having the traditional Indian wedding that every Sikh girl grows up dreaming of along with the fairy tale white gown Christian wedding.An even less valid reason is that some gurdwara management committees see mixed marriages in a gurdwara as an additional source of income.
The victim briefly was hospitalized at Harborview Medical Center for injuries that included a concussion and bite marks on his head, according to police and acquaintances. A Metro bus stopped next to the cab to block traffic after seeing the suspect attacking the victim in the road.

I’m not sure why, maybe it was because I was in Guru’s presence but I felt strangely calm as I waited for the Baraat to arrive.
With all of these factors, it is no surprise that most of our Indo-intercultural relationships blossom when the Indian partner is living abroad, away from their parents - and is able to be free, away from prying eyes, and able to make their own decisions.
Lately, via email - I have gotten so many letters for advice from other Whindian couples about how to tell the parents.
