    Yeah, I don't think thats a Sikh viewpoint. Perhaps they are silently calling out for help, but we are just ignoring them. The crops in Punjab have failed this year, some farmers are just sitting in the market and no one is buying their produce, you have children from Sikh families not being able to go to school, they walk the streets doing drugs, you have families that were devastated by 1984 and the subsequent genocide. You have Sikh farmers killing themselves because they are in debt or their crops have failed. You have Sikhs being converting to Chrisitianity, because that House of Guru Nanak, that house that once empancipated the common people is now ignoring its own people. Its easy for us Sikhs in the west or the rich ones in India to ignore their plight, to say "oh, they are drug users and prostitues, they aren't asking for help". What do you think our Gurus would do? Would they have ignored the people's suffering? Did the sadhus and homeless people ask Guru Nanak Dev Ji to set up a langar? Or did Guru Ji see people who needed food and shared what he had with them? We should sort our own people out first. Even our own charities don't help Sikhs. Who is helping the Sikhlighar Sikhs? They don't even have homes to live in, they want people to do Sikhi parchar, they are asking for it. Why is no one helping them? We haven't even been able to do anything for those who survived the pogroms of 1984. Why have we ignored our own people? Its good that we help other communities, thats what we should be doing. But shouldn't we be supporting Sikhs as well?

    The high density of the Punjabi population in particular diaspora pockets permits them to not only bring India/Punjab but remain in India in places like Surrey. Surely there are multiple reasons and one can’t assume anything about any single person. But as a community here are some observations not necessarily about the youth, but the families and society in which they are raised (and therefore what kind of outcomes one can expect). It is important to recognize issues/observations and call them out as issues of a mentally ill community rather than celebrate them as we currently do. 1. Financially “Secure”-Unlike so many wayward youth populations that are in some way disadvantaged, usually economically, there is no inherit disadvantage for the Punjabi communities. In fact the majority are financially well off, often by way of all the wrong reasons. 2. Morally Bankrupt-Having said the majority of families are financially well off, they are also morally bankrupt. They operate on societal rules in India, giving shirts off backs at times, yet so immune to their own fraudulent ways they won’t don’t even see it. Also very willing to hurt others economically for their own gain and rationalizing it as some kind of “will pay one day”, or “he owes B who owes me” or “his money was dirty, so OK to steal it”. aka stealing is all good. 3. Bling is King -(for 55 year old family men too!)-Money and showing money is king. Gaudy, gross, tacky, and having the courage and security of sheep. Who needs sheep when the lions clothes are now cars, houses and lifestyle. Better economics can permit a community to build and mature. Perhaps it is a blip but better economics for Punjabis/Indians means greater ability to be corrupt and hurt others for own gain. Kids observe that money is the goal. 4. No Sikhi-Having no concept of sikhi. Assuming it is a caste birthright and bole sonayhal has something to do with tweaking a jatt mustache while holding a rifle in the other hand (and applies to all Punjabi “Sikhs” who identify with any caste). Hence ability to claim the label of high ideals while living as a caste hindu. Claiming the high ideal of Sikhi and being a proud Punjabi ‘sikh’. Claiming the heritage of brave warriors while licking the boots of white masters every morning with a shave and every few weaks with a haircut. Hypocrisy upon hypocrisy can’t teach values no matter how tough we pose. 5. Education is not School –having no concept of what education actually is. Formal educations might assist but real education starts in the home and at it’s core values, respect, and love. Punjabi’s/Indians have a very high degree of unique anti-social uneducated traits amongst “educated professionals”. Many even use those anti-social traits in climbing to that “educated status”. All communities have this, but ever want to easily find a doctor who will hurt patients for financial gain, Punjabis/Indians are second to none. I also suggest true gursikh professionals because of their background are amongst the best in the world. How are kids suppose to want a sincere education when we simply adopted academic degree bling as the new caste system. All cultures have negative issues unique to them. A number of points could be written about any group. The Punjabi ‘sikh’ community is no different but it is so sad given that the teachings of the most amazing guides available to humanity of the Guru Panth and Guru Granth are within reach. Grow up in households with values described above and there is greater chance you will be a gangster. Those are also gangsters who own companies, wear suits, are doctors, lawyers, tradespeople etc. These Punjabi business/professional gangsters are just wiser about hiding their anti-social traits. Question is why are you and I k**s**ng a** rather than calling them out? These traits are no less a disease than abuse of anand karag.

    @MisterSingh, i hear you Paji. I think your point about things getting progressively worse year after year is exactly what it's all about. As the same applies in relation to the problems of alcohol, drugs, infanticide, illiteracy, biraderi, cancer and poverty as all those social indices have worsened since 1984. So we can either throw in the towel or we can look at every single problem as an opportunity to make the Sikh Panth stronger going forward. So more and more people marry those of other backgrounds which is inevitable for a 1% minority. So instead of alienation and digging our own demographic grave we should look at that as an opportunity that with the right interaction and engagement with the couple from Sangat and their local Gurdwara we can build a bigger, stronger and more diverse Sikh Panth going forwards in the future and realising the importance of Sikh population numbers by looking for every reason to include people in the Panth rather than to exclude them (as our opponents want us to do). This also has huge relevance in the importance of defining sehajdhari's of non-Punjabi (and now commonly called HP) backgrounds who bow down before Maharaj as in fact being Sikhs as they were prior to 1950 (for example Kabirpanthi's, Sanatani's and Jatavs as easy examples numbering close to 70million "Sikhs" that the Nehru-Gandhi Empire cleverly got defined away as non-Sikhs in 1950 due to their sehajdhari background ... as our opponents feared what a 100million strong Sikh Panth population could achieve for equality in society and an end to their corruption). Sikhi is Universal and an unopposable Truth as everything stands up to scrutiny. So the answers are straight there. Alcohol - we need to make it uncool in Punjabi culture, restrict the sale of it, increase alcohol detox centres and stop all the new outlets. Badal Dal won't do that with Majithia's hand in the distribution so come 2017 AAP might end it. Drugs - We need a Khalsa Fauj on the border stopping drugs coming in from Pakistan and also vigilante forces in every village to prevent the wholesale proliferation of drugs. If people have no meaning or motivation in their life (junkies) there is so much seva they can be directed towards in order to change their perspective a little. We won't succeed in every case but we can do our best. Infanticide is a self-inflicted Genocide that is far worse than occasional outbreaks of Beadbi (which is a ruse by our opponents so that we take our eyes off the real problems that urgently need addressing). We are all too ready to fight each other at the drop of a hat so why can't we easily unite to put the abortion clinics out of business (vigilante style). Biraderi and apartheid run Gurdwara's are a no brainer. We should have only one single united Gurdwara in every pind and locality in India and the West. United we stand and divided we fall. Prior to the 2021 census we need to make this a reality (otherwise Sikhs could fall below 50% in Punjab) and we in the West need to lead the way by attacking biraderi discrimination and matrimonial apartheid if we genuinely want to see United Sangat Gurdwara's everywhere. Illiteracy, cancer and poverty are social problems that primarily need our Sangat money poured in to in order to make a difference. The more schools, hospitals and social programs we can voluntarily create the stronger the Panth will be. So instead of worrying about how much gold we are going to adorn on some domed roof or how many millions we are going to extravagantly spend on new buildings we need to direct a greater proportion of the funds towards education of children. Sikhi comes from the heart rather than based upon how flash some building is. To that effect I would encourage anybody who agrees to support and other organisations making a real difference: http://barusahib.org/

    It is good to see Sikhs giving aid to the victims in Nepal. However there is great hesitation to give aid to fellow Sikhs that are in much need. There are the 1984 Genocide victims who living in dire poverty in many cities of India for the last 30 years , evidence of girls having to resort to prostitution to make ends meet. There are the drug victims, drugs that have caused devastation to the youth in Punjab. When a Sikh charity like Sewa 84 , Ensaaf or Khalsa aid request funds for these victims very little is given. On the contrary many will say the Charities and the victims are terrorists or will run off of the money etc. What is the difference between Sikh victims and non Sikhs? As far as I know no non Sikh charity or country has ever helped Sikh victims. I really find it hard to understand this reluctance to help Sikhs but not non Sikhs. Could Khalsa Aid and others ramp up aid to Sikh victims after Nepal?

    I take a nap during the day around 2-3 hours to make up sleep I loose during the night. So together in a day I get about 6-7 hours of sleep total. 10 hrs of sleep is a little too much bro I know you need at least 8 hrs to be healthy as for teenagers. You need to start changing your sleeping routine and it isn't easy. I pushed myself only by reminding me self if I want to please Guru ji and want to connect closer with Akal Purakh I'm going to have to sacrifice my sleep. Don't forget naam simran during Amritvela does give you energy for the whole day, some people say that's bs but you will have to try yourself.

    gsingh9 Ji, 4. When you get these thoughts in your mind, the swearing etc this is what you need to do. Stop your paath or simran. Warn off those inside you. Tell them, in your mind, "Go away." then do quick benti to Guru Ji - " Guru Ji this is not me speaking, forgive me they are trying to stop me from your paath". No karam has been made. Then carry on with the paath or simran. NO guilt, NO torturing yourself. Be happy and love your Guru like your father. All is cool.

    gSingh9 1. Don't worry and don't give up. You have been given this janam after a long long time so do not give up. You already have kirpa of your Guru - You been given human janam. - You are born in a Sikh family - You are trying to do naam. So the kirpa has already been done on you. Guru Ji has already gazed his beautiful sight upon you so don't give up. 2. Take things step by step, do not over stretch yourself. If you cannot do full japji sahib, if it is causing you stress and worry then stop! Start with mool Matra. Do just 1st pauri tha paath. If this causes stress, then just do Akaal-purkh Waheguru tha jaap. If this stresses you out, then just sit, concentrate lightly between your eyes and expel all thoughts from your mind (difficult to do but persevere ,make your mann shaat. Concentrate on the nothingness in your mind, calm your mind). Keep to this regime for a week, two weeks, a month. However long you feel easy with, then progress, slowly. 3. About the swearing. You must understand what is happening. Once you know, then you can do something about it, else you are going to torture yourself like you are doing. Have you noticed that when you watch TV, movie, read a book, converse with people, you can concentrate totally. No swearing , no bad thoughts for the Gurus, why? Why only when you do paath ? Because those within you are trying to stop you from the path you are traversing. The panj-thieves inside are trying to stop your simran, and what better way than to put bad thoughts in your mind, swearing etc, . . . . and the result is - you stop your paath, mission accomplished. NO. You must not let them accomplish their mission. In this life, in this janam YOU MUST WIN. You must leave this world with a mountain of naam with you, you must leave this world with the blessing and love of your Guru so that Guru Ji comes to meet you when you pass-over. So , do not despair, do not give up. Do ardas to your Guru, ask His assistance, He will help you.

    http://www.tribuneindia.com/news/world/time-for-foreign-rescue-workers-to-return-home-says-nepal/76063.html Kathmandu/New Delhi, May 4 The Nepal government today asked hundreds of foreign rescue workers to leave the quake-hit country as immediate relief has already been provided and the remaining tasks will be carried out by its Army and police. It, however, clarified to India that its decision to ask foreign rescue personnel to leave was not directed at it but encompassed all other 33 countries present in the Himalayan nation which was now moving into next phase — rehabilitation. The focus can go to Sikh issues now that Nepal has asked foreign rescue workers to leave. The 1984 victims ask for help everyday, the press have coverage every other day regarding protests from the victims. The Shaheed families also say hardly anybody comes to help them. The Sikh channels have covered interviews many times.

    Stop feeling guilty about it. Thats a massive obstacle in your path. We all fall off the path, this is life. This is the journey of a Sikh. We are children of the Guru, we will all fall, we'll hurt ourselves, we'll make mistakes. But we should learn from them, we will become stronger and better people. ਸੁਤੁ ਅਪਰਾਧ ਕਰਤ ਹੈ ਜੇਤੇ ॥ Suth Aparaadhh Karath Hai Jaethae || The son may commit many mistakes, ਜਨਨੀ ਚੀਤਿ ਨ ਰਾਖਸਿ ਤੇਤੇ ॥੧॥ Jananee Cheeth N Raakhas Thaethae ||1|| His mother does not hold them against him in her mind. ||1|| ਰਾਮਈਆ ਹਉ ਬਾਰਿਕੁ ਤੇਰਾ ॥ Raameeaa Ho Baarik Thaeraa || Waheguru, I am Your child. ਕਾਹੇ ਨ ਖੰਡਸਿ ਅਵਗਨੁ ਮੇਰਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Kaahae N Khanddas Avagan Maeraa ||1|| Rehaao || Why not destroy my mistakes and shortcomings? ||1||Pause|| ਜੇ ਅਤਿ ਕ੍ਰੋਪ ਕਰੇ ਕਰਿ ਧਾਇਆ ॥ Jae Ath Krop Karae Kar Dhhaaeiaa || If the son, in anger, begins to hit his mother. ਤਾ ਭੀ ਚੀਤਿ ਨ ਰਾਖਸਿ ਮਾਇਆ ॥੨॥ Thaa Bhee Cheeth N Raakhas Maaeiaa ||2|| Even then, his mother does not hold it against him in her mind. ||2|| ਚਿੰਤ ਭਵਨਿ ਮਨੁ ਪਰਿਓ ਹਮਾਰਾ ॥ Chinth Bhavan Man Pariou Hamaaraa || My mind has fallen into the whirlpool of anxiety. ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਕੈਸੇ ਉਤਰਸਿ ਪਾਰਾ ॥੩॥ Naam Binaa Kaisae Outharas Paaraa ||3|| Without the Naam, how can I cross over to the other side? ||3|| ਦੇਹਿ ਬਿਮਲ ਮਤਿ ਸਦਾ ਸਰੀਰਾ ॥ Dhaehi Bimal Math Sadhaa Sareeraa || Please, bless my body with pure and lasting understanding, ਸਹਜਿ ਸਹਜਿ ਗੁਨ ਰਵੈ ਕਬੀਰਾ ॥੪॥੩॥੧੨॥ Sehaj Sehaj Gun Ravai Kabeeraa ||4||3||12|| In peace, slowly and steadily, Kabeer contemplates upon the Praises of Waheguru. ||4||3||12|| You need to change your mindset. It seems like you are almost forcing yourself to do bani. Don't force yourself to do it. Do it out of love, when you really want to do some bani. Don't do a lot at once. Just do mool mantar or some simran. You don't have to do the whole thing. Why not listen to some kirtan? ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਬਿਲੋਵਨਾ ਬਿਲੋਵਹੁ ਮੇਰੇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Har Kaa Bilovanaa Bilovahu Maerae Bhaaee || Churn the churn of Waheguru, my Siblings. ਸਹਜਿ ਬਿਲੋਵਹੁ ਜੈਸੇ ਤਤੁ ਨ ਜਾਈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Sehaj Bilovahu Jaisae Thath N Jaaee ||1|| Rehaao || Churn it slowly and steadily, so that the essence, the butter, may not be lost. ||1||Pause|| Sehaj, slowly and steadily. Don't force yourself to do it at once, make sure you do something, but don't try to go really fast. This shabad is using the metaphor of making butter from milk. If you mix the milk too fast, you will lost the butter. Do you do seva? Get involved with helping people. Interact with others and put Sikhi into practice. You should go to a doctor, just to make sure. Why does this happen to you? Why can't you read bani? Does it happen with anything else? Can you read other things?

    It happens. Ups and downs in spirituality. Seems like ur mind is fighting because ur going down the right path. Maya will take many forms to stop u, it will use fun and depression. Don't let it win. In pain, sorrow, stay with waheguru. This stage will pass, but if u want it to pass faster, do sangat. Go to camps, samagsms anywhere with chardi kala sangat. Also if u can't do paath, try other things kirtan, Katha. Seva. Keep bothering ur mind like its bothering u. Don't staganate just keep going and if ur mind isn't in something switch to something else. Be like 10 mins a day I'm going to do simran and 10 mins paath. Doesn't matter how much u do. Just stick to ur guns for the 10 mins. Then study for exams. And in evening do the same thing 10 mins simran and 10 mins paath. Also do ardaas asking for help in getting rid of these thoughts and feelings.

    Not in every case as you know, but i appreciate your point. Why not be honest and say, "I don't want to settle down with a Sikh guy" instead of coming out with the line about intelligent and respectful Sikh guys? Because I can easily say there's a complete dearth of intelligent and respectful Sikh girls, but oh, that would make me a misogynist, lol. Morals and principles aside, do Sikh girls know anything aside from the little world they inhabit inside their own heads? When was the last time you met a Sikh female who was capable of holding a conversation about politics, literature, music (not Bhangra fgs), philosophy? I haven't, and that's even after coming across those with multiple degrees. Of course, I don't expect a full and frank appraisal of Nietzsche every time we settle down to eat dinner, lol, but something a bit challenging and thoughtful between the ears wouldn't go amiss. Even a good heart with high morals would go far to meet those requirements. And then if one does happen to encounter such a fabled being, lol, what are the chances she has an inkling about Sikhi even in its most basic form? And I'm expected to live in close quarters day in and day out with such mind numbing infirmity for the rest of my life? That would be worse than any prison sentence a court could hand down. No thanks.

    The secondary reasons stem from one main point that I have shown to not be an authority on the topic of Jesus Christ being a Gurmukh, etc. Highest authority and only authority is Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji's Bani. End of story. If you feel there is another higher authority. Then say so and don't hid behind others. I will not be subjected to this back handed cunning tactics. Be a man and post in the correct thread and we can discuss. To give a little flavor. Rehat does not equal Gurbani. Rehat has changed over the course of the Gurus and Gurbani has stayed the same. So there is the simple logic you Baba and jatha culture people cannot accept. What gave you the impression I rely on english translations? Or is this one of your cunning ways to take away the validity of my post based on Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji's Bani? I really believe it is the latter. In the past I have translated the Guru's Bani myself from Gurmukhi to english on this very site. So your argument falls on deaf hears. Nice try though. Jesus Christ and every other so called messenger sent by God and actually sent by God is included in the Bani of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji. Plain and simple all lost to ego. Bhagat Bani was included in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji and those who passed the test are included in Gurbani. If there was one honest messenger/avtaar/prophet, etc out of them. Their writing would have been included in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji like Bhai Mardana Bani is. Dhan Dhan Dhan Bhai Mardana ji who did the seva of Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji Maharaj. The Sikhs of today can learn something from him today. Leave Gurbani as is and don't add your manmat too it.

On nandgarh, he was appointed by badal as jathedar and was in that post for more than a decade. Why he was keeping quiet all these years? Was he not attending meetings of jathedars all the time? Of course he was. Then where was he. He is a sham and should not be believed as he is indulging in calendar propaganda which is out rightly mischievous. He is playing in hands of missionaries who are doing damage to Sikhism. Fight rss as it is evil but do not trust stooges like nandgarh.

    The leftist Islamic alliance sure is a strange one. The left teaches equality of sexes, inclusion of homosexuals, equal rights for all and freedom of religion and conscience. Islam teaches women are inferior to men, death to homosexuals, Muslims to be superior above all other religions and death to apostates. A strange combination of ideas indeed. On the subject of Ukip my own thoughts are they are an ultra rich party for the ultra rich who want to cut back public spending to zero and give even more tax breaks to their rich colleagues. What they are doing is exploiting a justifiable fear namely too much of the wrong sort of immigration and too much money being shelled out to prop up a corrupt regime in Europe. Now it's easy for me to start a party that promises solutions to your fears of the future but actually coming up with a solution when in power, well that's a different kettle of fish. I'm thinking Ukip would be like the Republican party in the USA or the TEA party. Like I say, I haven't decided which bunch of no good low life liars to vote for yet.

    D = There was no retaliation from Sikhs. The Muslims carried out a campaign of systematic Genocide against Sikhs. 20% of the Sikh population was killed by the Muslims in Pakistan. So imagine 1.5 billion people being killed tomorrow and that's the extent of the suffering that Sikhs endured in 1947 at the hands of Pakistani Punjabi Muslims. In West Punjab the percentage population of Sikhs did not have a critical mass to allow Sikhs to defend themselves. However, in the districts of Majha, Doaba and Malwa fortunately the Sikhs comprised at least 30% of the population of those districts (that currently comprise Punjab). Now when the Muslims tried to ethnically cleanse Sikhs out of Majha, Malwa and Doaba they simply met their match because our population numbers in those districts were broadly comparable to the Muslims. Sikhs fought for their lives because the so-called high caste Muslim communities (Muslim Jatts, Muslim Rajputs etc) were intent on annexing Amritsar, Jalandhar, Ludhiana etc into Pakistan via the 1947 Genocide of Sikhs. D = Nonsense Jagsaw. I find it amazing that you are repeating fictitious claims by Pakistani polemicists. I think what you need to grasp is that if Sikhs did not stand their ground (where our numbers permitted) in the districts of Majha, Malwa and Doaba then east Punjab as we know it today would have been in Pakistan with millions of innocent Sikhs consequently killed by genocidal Punjabi Muslims. D = This an academic lie perpetrated against Sikhs. The actual reality is that Punjabi Muslims were intent upon the annexation of present day east Punjab into Pakistan via the ethnic cleansing and massacre of innocent Sikhs. This is clearly seen by what the Muslims started in Amritsar and elsewhere in order to include Amritsar (and present day east Punjab) into Pakistan. What the Muslims failed to realise was that Sikhs will never surrender or retreat where we have equal numbers or ammunition supply to the enemy. If Sikhs had not bravely defended Sikh Panth from the Pakistani Genocide of Sikhs in 1947, most members of this website would not be alive to see today. As the Pakistani Genocide of Sikhs was over 20 times worse in per capita terms than what the wretched Nehru-Gandhi Empire managed to inflict.

    How dare you ask such a silly question! They're all totally behind her. They don't want her to ruin her life by being stuck in a loveless, arranged marriage to someone of her cultural and religious background, because, as we all know, love marriages are totally not built on physical attraction, and the love between the two partners in such marriages never fades or wanes at all resulting in no divorces ever. It's a universal truth. And you're an extremist... a God-forsaken terrorist for attacking the beautiful couple on their special, magical day./sarcasm
