Sikh Dharma is an expression of love

Without kaysh(hair), no one will "see" you as a Sikh.

A Sikh is a disiple. Hair or no hair, one can be a Sikh... But you sure cannot be a Khalsa without Hair...

It is like "All KHALSAs are Sikhs, But not all Sikhs are KHALSAs". Though all Sikhs are supposed to become Khalsas....

Thats how I see it...

Bhul Chuk Dee Khema....

Thank you Sarvjeet Singh Ji for your comment.
In this post I'm not saying who is or isn't a Sikh. I'm only saying who will be "seen" as a Sikh.

On a lighter note, looks may be deceiving sometimes.... :-)

Kesh is the identity of a Sikh.If we take admission into a school we have to follow the dress code.Not keeping kesh and calling urself a sikh is like calling yourself student of a school just 'cos you are standing at the gate.Remember admission is only taking amrit!
only those wearing the dress are seen as students of the school....
so only keshadharies are seen as sikhs.A lion in a herd of sheep will be spotted immediately.
But just wearing a dress doesn't make you a good student.
Yes Sifar looks can be deceiving.The best example is our sikh politicians.Looks are only to take the votes and grab the post for personal benefits for them.Otherwise they are not even worth being called men forget about calling them sikhs

Waheguru. Nice post and good comments.

Just to add, Kesh is not a "DRESS" or "UNIFORM". Kesh is A PART of our BODY. It's an ORGAN (ANG). Everyone is born with Kesh. However, the unique Khalsa ties their hair on top of their head (in a Rishi-knot) COVERED WITH A TURBAN. The TURBAN is the UNIFORM.

Sikh lives in the GRACE and GLORY of God. The Kesh are magnificant. Biologically, physically and spiritually they do so much for us. Looking at the Kesh of a Sikh one see's the Sikh principle of "LIVING IN THE WILL (BHANA) of GOD" with stories of Great Sikhs like BHAI TARU SINGH jee and countless Shaheeds being a LIVING REMINDER of what the Kesh means to the Khalsa.

Bhul chuk Maaf karnee jee.

Sat Bachan Upinder Kuar jee, Manveer Singh jee & Prabhu Singh jee.... How I look things might not the only way they are...

Thank you Manvir Singh for correcting me.I was tring to mean turban as uniform and not kesh. Yes kesh is an organ and very much a part of the body.
