  1. I was blessed with a baby son a couple of weeks ago and gave him a nice desi name, it's also the name of a historical Sikh figure. My wife has been going to midwife appointments and she has seen the majority of apne our age (30s) have given their kids western names like Cameron, Jayden, Jordan, Kieran, Sienna, Tiana, Harvey, Cara, Kai, Keira, Emelia, Antonio. My former next door neighbours and my current neighbours have also done this and they both have khande logos on their cars. It's pathetic! Talk about being confused! What is the logic? I understand that the apne who grew up in

  2. Congratulations bro Yeah iv got a Simon and Jason in my family too! And a few others that I can't remember now Just another step in forgetting who you are and your ancestors and assimilating into the local culture. It's why it's so important to teach your kids Punjabi. Language keeps you tied to your culture and ancestors. Punjabis are fast becoming like the local people, without any identity, and at a very fast rate too. Theres going to be a lot of changes in the coming years. Best thing to do is keep close to your sangat as much as you can and raise your kid

  3. These types of names chosen are by the brown/blond highlight haired and blue eye contact lense brigade. It's brown chavness. Bit of a strange phenomenon really. When racism was rife, people chose traditional names but now they choose names so that their kids peers can remember them. Weird! A lot of times you see these kids, the names don't suit them. I understand people don't like long names because they tend to get shortened. So they will try to pick shorter names. People will think they are getting "unique" names so that they think they are standing out but like s

  8. 100%. A lot of the names themselves sound pure chavvy as well - Jayden, Harvey, Tiana, Sienna. I don't feel like associating with such parents. There are plenty of short desi names that are easy to pronounce, I've chosen such a name. In fact I was worried that the name we chose might be too common but my wife has said his class will be full of Jaydens, Jordans, Camerons not Amars, Arjuns, Harmans! So giving your kid a western name is going to be very far from being unique.

  10. This would be correct if the word was broken up ਸਦ+ਰਸ (which it can be, but usually you would find it written seperately as ਸਦ ਰਸ rather than ਸਦਰਸ) But in Katha, and from what I have heard from Giani Singhs, the way the word is pronounced in this context is ਸ+ਦਰਸ/ਸ-ਦਰਸ ਸ = In this context could mean samaan (equal) ਦਰਸ=Daras i.e. vision/seeing. I.e. To be seen as equal to i.e. in Panjabi what we would say as ਤੁੱਲ or ਬਰਾਬਰ. This is echoed in the meaning by Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha - ਜੋ ਸਮਾਨ ਦਿਖਾਈ ਦੇਵੇ. - i.e. jo (that) samaan (equal) dikhaee deve (which is seen) - that which is see

  11. This word comes up in Mahan Kosh as ਸਦ੍ਰਿਸ. It means 'equal to'. In sanskrit it is सदृश (sadarsh). As written in Mahan Kosh: ਸੰ. सदृश ਵਿ- ਸਦ੍ਰਿਕ੍ਸ਼੍. ਜੋ ਸਮਾਨ ਦਿਖਾਈ ਦੇਵੇ. ਜੇਹਾ. ਤੁੱਲ. ਸਮਾਨ. "ਕੂਰ ਕੁਪੱਤਾ ਸਦ੍ਰਿਸ ਕੁੱਤਾ". (ਗੁਪ੍ਰਸੂ). To illustrate the meaning given in Faridkot Teeka by Singhstah above: ਅਠਸਠਿ ਤੀਰਥ ਸਗਲ ਪੁੰਨ ਜੀਅ ਦਇਆ ਪਰਵਾਨੁ ॥ ਅਠਾਹਠਂ ਤੀਰਥੋਂ ਕੇ ਇਸਨਾਨ ਅਰ ਸਭ ਪੁੰਨੋਂ ਕੇ (ਪਰਵਾਨੁ) ਸਦਰਸ ਹੈ ਜੋ ਜੀਵੋਂ ਪਰ ਵਾ ਆਪਨੇ ਜੀਵ ਪਰ ਦਯਾ ਕਰਨੀ ਹੈ॥ Having daya (mercy) on all Jeev (souls) is Sadaras (equal to) all the merits/ bathing in the Athaahat Teera

  13. Welcome back. Pls, before you hand it over to someone else, can you remove me from the restriction you’ve imposed upon me? It would be nice to be free of it. I know I am not a regulator poster here but it would be good to be free, especially now that I am stranded here due to COVID travel restrictions and have no Sikh brothers or sisters to talk to. My hormones were playing up and causing a lot of aggressive behaviour in the past but now they have settled and I have grown up since then. Thank you.

  14. Ever so sorry to hear about your illness. Some people still don’t realise how serious this virus can be, you still see many people not wearing masks or adhering to 2 meters distancing. It is not nice to get sick but they don’t care. I am very happy to learn you are safe and sound and back. Still take care and follow the instructions to keep yourself safe and protected. Welcome back. You are totally correct, until something as serious and life threatening as this happens to a loved one people regard it as nothing to worry about and ignore its implications. There are some that think i

  18. Brother Singh 375, Your going is a pity. One needs not to be full time at one place, you can spend half an hour here if you want as leisure or hobby. Of course there are 1 or 2 nasty people as much here, but the rest are all good fellas. Your posts are quite inspiring for all of us as they are out of personal experiences. Do not let the stupids or bully and negative affect you in any way, it only shows the low class they are. These stupid type ones have always been and will continue being here and there, so just ignore them, no matter how much they may try to act

  21. EPISODE DESCRIPTION Singh Sahib Giani Mal Singh Ji (Head Granthi Sri Derbar Sahib) discuss the importance of teaching Gurmat to young children from home. It is important that parents practice and preach Sikhi to their children from home and dont depend on Parchaariks at the Gurdwara Sahib. https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/harkeekatha81878/episodes/2013-04-05T01_13_15-07_00

  22. BHforce do you know who the giani talking in the Video is? He is Giani Gurvinder Singh Ji Nangli Wale, a fully fledged Nihang Singh respected by all vidhvans of Budha Dal and Tarna Dal. they themselves run a Gurmat Vidhyala under Panth Akali Tarna Dal Baba Bakala. The recent Budha Dal Sarabloh Granth Sahib Paath Bodh was conducted by Giani Gurvinder Singh Ji, Giani Ji is a great vidhvaan who has studied aadh, dasam, sarabloh, vedant, Sanskrit and Farsi in depth. The old Budha Dal Gutka has many typo mistakes as it was printed by Chattar Jeevan Singh Amritsar rather than Budha Dal directly. You
