I took a day off to participate in Nagar Kirtan which happened on April 19 in my city Surrey . As I work as transit operator and my second reason to take a bus instead of driving my car was to avoid the hassle to find a parking spot and frustration to get out of the traffic at the end of day.I took lot of pictures thinking that I will share it with my friends . But what happened in the bus when I was coming back home was so soul touching that I couldn’t stop myself to write this.Despite of cold weather and rain I seen 5 Singh and 5 ( piaray ) loved ones, were walking bare feet in front of Guru sahib float . They had to walk at least 7 hours like that .For me it was great faith and dedication but somehow my mind wasn’t ready to accept it . Is it really needed or necessary ? Why can’t they have shoes on ? My mind sometime makes me think !!!!I was the last person to get in the bus . There was a poor man sitting on left side the bus , I sat on the right side opposite to him . On the next stop, Muslim guy came in the bus and sat beside me . I felt that he want to start conversation but I kept playing with my phone to avoid it but not to ignore him. Before he got off the bus , this Muslim guy took his shoes off including his socks , he pushed toward this poor fellow . Saying that it’s ok . Take it . I live close by . Don’t worry about me . After saying that he quickly got off the bus, not even giving this poor man chance to say Thanks .I grabbed my phone and took two pictures . One this guy putting shoes on ( I noticed he had his feet wrapped in plastic bags and had no shoes . And I also took the picture of Muslim man who was walking home bare feet .What a great human being .His bare feet walking home was so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes.

it’s like someone just said that to harper’s face and this is the moment he tries to process the fact that he’s irrelevant
