“I am an agnostic. I take pride in my Sikh identity, but I have no time for religion. I believe, instead, in humanity, truth, ahimsa and hard work. My creed is best expressed in Leigh Hunt’s ‘Abou Ben Adhem’ and Kipling’s ‘If’. These poems are my contribution to this festival which I am too old to attend. Take them with you and live by them.”

– Khushwant Singh
