Ajitpal Kahlon was a professional basketball player for his local police department for five years in his native India when he joined his aunt and mother in the Lodi area in 1985.

Kahlon, 52, said he came to America with hopes for a better life. His aunt had already moved to Woodbridge, and then his mother moved to Bouldin Island in the Delta. He lived on Bouldin Island for a few months before moving to Lodi.

    Very nice article- I think most Americans love sharing our country with people that appreciate it and respect it. It appears that the Sikhs have found a way to hang on to their traditions, while sharing in ours- a perfect match!
