I am mixed-race; my mom is white and Jewish and my dad is south Indian. I have been confused for Mexican, Dominican, Salvadoran, Ethiopian, Arab, and many other ethnicities by white people and other people of color, alike. Growing up in Washington, D.C., I existed as a cultural chameleon. There isn’t a strong Indian or Jewish community in the city as most live far out in the suburbs. The neighborhood where I grew up and my elementary school was majority Latinx, my high school was very mixed but majority Black.

Growing up I always heard stories of how Punjab was the land of rebels. The greatest of these rebels were the Khalsa: a group of people loyal to no worldly power, a clan that overthrew regimes only to give the power back to the people. They never ruled, they simply showed other people how to do so, and they only were loyal to the creative essence of this universe—the same one that flows through all that we see. To call it a God would be to betray their most essential beliefs.
