The idea of the X/ karavaan as we envisage it, then, is best rendered in this well-known couplet by Majrooh Sultanpuri: Main akela hi chalaa tha jaanib-e-manzil magar Log saath aate gaye… karavaan banta gaya Next slide image

Following reports, a case has been registered against him in Australian courts under human rights violence but not in India. Sikhs have written letters to Obama, Madame Taussads, Mayavati and everyone with any status whatsoever in the world to take action against him but no one has.
