Vaisakhi is a festival celebrated by the Sikh community to commemorate the establishment of the Khalsa in 1699, by the 10th Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh. The Sikhs of the Khalsa can be identified with the given Five Ks and titles of Singh and Kaur which are gained after the disciple is being baptized into the order of the Khalsa.
Once an individual becomes a member of the Khalsa they overcome the inside-evils and the shred weakness of the body, mind, and heart, and become brave as lions. The Khalsa is expected to perform no ritual, either Hindu or Muslim, and to believe no superstition of any kind but believe in only one God who is the Master and the Protector of all the only Creator and Destroyer.
This picture is hard; indifference is worse.
UNICEF, the UN children’s agency, says that Afghanistan is the worst place in the world to be a child. One in five children do not live past the age of five.
No one growing up in Afghanistan has ever known what it is like to live in a country at peace. Think about it.

"My generation just doesn’t have the best taste in leadership. And weak leadership means little to no cohesion. If there’s no cohesion, there’s no real chance for effective protest or politics. Obviously, looking at Occupy Wall Street, there are a few in our bunch who still give a damn enough to rally and shout. This will change once I’m elected President."
