Portrait of Makhan


171112a_

Makhan was originally from Punjab, India and practiced sikhism. He had been living in the United States for over 28 years.

Makhan was a very religious man who “tried” to be religious by participating in the following: faith my God, keep my principles, I do hard work, I don’t cheat any system and not on anybody, so I can make my money and then give 10% of my salary.

Makhan was dressed in all white because “it is what my Guru Granth Sahib suggested to dress that way.”

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
