RE: Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind (Kamboj)
Much of the necessary information relevant to Dr. Bhagat Singh Thind, a great personality from Kamboj community is already on the internet, but I still want to add the following:
Dr. Thind was indeed an institution himself. He was a saint, a missionary, a philosopher, a freedom fighter, besides also being a philanthropist and an excellent human being. The Sikhs in particular and the Americans in general owe much to him for all his missionary dedications and the contributions he has made in their cause.
“Doctor exemplified his teachings by his own transformed and beautifully – lived life; he was a fountainhead of energy and wisdom.”
From Bhupinder Singh Tufaan-Nihang
Dear David, I was thrilled to receive the books and will send a money order after the first of February. The package has 2 addresses and would like to know just which address I should use. I have a friend here that has been to India and likes the lady “Amma” very much. He would open one book at a time and begin to read. It was a thrill to read something that is truly inspiring and applicable. Your father was and is a man that I must say is the Rosetta stone I have been searching for over 37 years. I have heard in the past that Sikhism is a Scientific path, have read through many libraries in many Sikh Gurdwara’s and have found history or peoples opinions about whatever; but nothing like your father. Is there a chance I might have a photo of your father in his WW1 uniform?
Thank you so much, Your humble servant, Bhupinder Singh Tufaan-Nihang
