Sikhs have a part of our community for as long as I can remember, and continue to hold on to certain customs, no matter their profession or business.
This character is inspired by a tow truck driver who took me and a sickly Maxima from Richmond to Berkeley a few years ago. We spoke at length during the drive, mostly about family. He was surprised to hear that I was not already married. When I explained that I was not financially stable enough to pursue a relationship, he asserted that "Two can live as cheaply as one."
I'll never forget that ride.
