Hi,

I am Gagan Gandhi, in Toronto. What I am trying to find out is that since Gandhi is not a Sikh name...howcome I belong to a Sikh family. There is no one in my immediate surroundings that can answer this question.

Would anyone venture a guess!

Thanks.

Hi Gagan,

From what little I have researched, Sikh Gandhis from the punjab regions were basically arora/khatri aroras. That is warriors(khatris) who took up trading. In those times, many hindu families raised their elder sons to be a sikh and join the khalsa. Maybe that is the history of all the sikh Gandhis.
