Happy Baisakhi

Baisakhi is here In the tumult of excess that has come to mark our celebrations, let us all spare a moment to dwell on the shabad of Guru Gobind Singh: “Let wisdom be your guide…/ Eat sparingly and sleep sparingly, and have forgiveness and compassion and love within thee./ And live with good conduct and contentment, harbouring neither lust nor wrath, greed, obstinacy or undue attachment…/then you will see the quintessence of the soul and attain everlasting happiness”.

We wrote poems in dead languages and recited the Lord’s Prayer in Latin every Sunday night. At my previous school, in preparation, we had to race through cold showers every morning at dawn before a breakfast of lukewarm kippers or porridge. Fourteen of us, aged 9, shared a single damp chamber and, clutching teddy bears, thought of parents in faraway Hong Kong or Nairobi or (in my case) California. Well-meaning friends shudder when I recall my school days for them now; I glow nostalgically.
