Who is your legend? Who is the most influential / inspiring Sikh?

Little did I know that it will be so hard to get answers for these simple questions. Being a white sikh (you can call me gora), I'm learning Sikhi not the usual way but with the help of husband, Internet, online newspapers and etc. What should I do is to start reading Punjab history books and I will....

Did you hear about Sonny Caberwal from Kenneth Cole ad? Click here to read more about him. I've read so many good comments about him- NEW FACE OF SIKHS. Many young people are inspired by his success. He is like the coolest sikh guy in USA.

That day I was thinking who are those people who inspire Sikhs/Punjabis? Who are those Sikh legends? So to get some answers for my questions I decided to run poll on Sikhpal and Sikhphilosophy sites plus ask my friends.

Sikh-who am i to explain sikh? guru ji has already explained. you can search shabad "gur satgur ka jo sikh akhaye." you can search bhai gurdas jis vaaran also. "rahini rahe soyi sikh mera.." and all that. To get most of the answer you can repeat "ardaas". sikhs recites name of their heroes everyday in their ardaas. i am not able to add any other name into it. True sikh can not be a good politician as per todays standard politics.
