I'm a Sikh and I disagree. Participation in British Raj is the greatest sin of my ancestors. Village simpletons were deceived by the white folks into fighting their wars while treating them with contempt. Churchill making fun of a Sikh who helped carry wounded white people in Afghanistan by calling them a Gollywog ie this- I was also reading about how a Maharaja of a princely state in Punjab was given the rank of Col in the British Army but was then yelled at by mere jawans of British Army to not travel in the same train car as white officers and to travel with the natives. Sorry for the slight offtopic, but I think it is relevant.
