An awesome AJ+ video shining the spotlight on American desi truck drivers. AJ+ producer Shreen Khan takes a 12 hour road trip with Satnam Singh to film the documentary capturing the growing number of truckers in the U.S. are Sikhs from Punjab, India. Some of them have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border and faced detention to realise their American dream.
Along the way, she joins Satnam for chai made on his mobile stove. She also listens to Bollywood music in his big rig while hearing about his life on the road, why he left Punjab and the discrimination he’s faced in the U.S.
A must see video to get a glimpse of Sikh truckers in the US. Go here.
