  1. Just watched it this afternoon. Speechless. I had low expectations when I first heard of it, because it's made by India, but saw what @dallysingh101 had to say, and thanks mate for your opinion on it, it was amazing. Genuinely think there should be more Punjabis making this sort of cinematic beauties, could get a much bigger market than middle aged aunties and uncles watching Punjabi cinema.

  3. The real figure of Sikhs in East Punjab (practising or not) today is definitely below 50%. There are many things going behind the scenes, the recent declaration by the Jathedar is a sign that panthic leaders are realizing the grave situation we have landed ourselves into without realizing (once again proving the anecdote with differing approaches to a coming storm by the foresighted Hindu, the adapting scheming Muslim and the dimwitted Sikh). Doaba will be the first region where Sikhs will be reduced to a minority below 30% of the population, this will be a first for a district in Modern

  4. Wow, that's not even what the Anand Karaj crew is saying. Among other things, the Jathedar has stated that people getting married should: 1. Have names Singh/Kaur. If not, file with the government to change name. 2. Affirm that they believe in 10 Gurus, Guru Granth Sahib ji, and no other religion, as in SRM. Nowhere is there any mention of kes or not. Why is it that people can't fulfill these simple requirements?

  7. First of all, it seems "Gulbarg Singh Basi" is another beard-tying rationalist Uncle Ji trying so desperately to make Gurmat fit into a nice Western modernist box. Also he's the head of the "Global Sikh Economic Forum", which, I guess, instead of meeting in Davos like the World Economic Forum, must meet in Pathankot or something. Likely, it's 5 people and a fax machine. Anyways, as to his assertions: 1. He claims he's not the first person to question ੴ . Nirmal Singh Kalsi and Devinder Singh Chahal have as well. Oh, OK, so if Nirmal Singh Kalsi said so, I guess it

  9. Haven't found videos but it's pretty easy. All you need is the full voile material. Here is a video that has similar steps but I'll tell you what things you need to do differently. Tie your joora up and start the video when the Singh begins to tie his yellow material. Okay, here are the different steps you need to do. With his yellow material, this Singh makes a triangle base larh and covers his ears. What you wanna do is go above your ears. Once you do this step, cover the triangle (like he does). This is personal preference, but if you want material to show on the side of your dastar y

  17. In the UK, a part of it was the white establishment (police and social services) pandering to the notion of misogynistic Sikh father who cruelly oppresses his wonderful daughter. They'd whisk these poor oppressed girls away to 'safe houses' which were actually the opposite of what their name suggests. But they wouldn't do this to certain other communities. Plus, with broads, if you're strict it's 'oppression' and when you ease up, you've gone soft. Plus I know a lot of apneean behave appallingly in the face of any attempts at discipline and expectations of not acting in certain debased w

  18. I'm pretty sure their kind are on this board too keeping an eye on us. For some reason they are obsessed with us and cant let us do our own thing. They always have to insert themselves into everything we do. Karma works in mysterious ways. Been causing troubles for Sikhs since 1947 through treachery dont forget that there are 250 million Muslims on your land now. They say God works in mysterious ways.

  23. I think we are seeing a real change in the attitude of our people. The secularisation that began a few decades ago is now on the back foot. Sikhs are willing to voice opinions today that would have seen them being shot down just a few years ago by our own people. What I find interesting is that criticisms of KA that were discussed here over the years are now being discussed outside of this forum and in real life. Has anyone else noticed how Khalsa Aid have now started to tweet more and more about what they are doing in Punjab. This is all due to pressure from our people, I think Ravi Singh ha

  26. If you expect Western Punjabi youth to get into speaking and understand Punjabi then it should be in things that they are interested in. They are not necessarily going to be interested in Pardes/ Des Gippy Grewal type stuff. Though youtube has been a God send. I like watching some off the track travel shows on youtube. Got watching some Punjabis like Navdeep Brar who is travelling around the former Soviet Union. It's conversed in Punjabi and you can watch it with the elders as well.

  30. Punjabis generally have this disconnect where they expect that their children are born speaking Punjabi without having to teach them. It's laziness because their priorities are elsewhere. It's like expecting kids to have big muscles without taking them to the gym.

  31. This was a surprisingly well made film! I had avoided watching this thinking it was the typical overacted, propagandist stuff like those three bhagat singh films they made in early 2000s or that gaddhar movie. Like dallysingh already stated, there is heavy Sikh representation and parallels to near and distant struggles against the powers that be. I’m actually surprised with those behind this film, that as non-sikh theywould go this far for us. Maybe it was unintentional, maybe not, but the gutt-wrenching end scenes will have every sikh thinking about 84. Honestly, I have not seen any Indi

Yet how many of us celebrate the Birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Or even know when it is for that matter? Just one example of the white washed Sikhs of today. Who know more christmas carol songs the shabads.

  34. no it is not illegal or at least it wasn't then and teachers and headteachers were not constrained in how to teach as the current spoonfed neo liberal slush given to our kids. in the seventies , people actually still talked about the faith of the land ...nothing unusual really ...Indians are forever talking about their majority religions and forcing their chosen languages on others. it was a state school , and we all sang the songs when told to close eyes and bow heads I did the same but did naam japp ...same with my siblings

  35. I think you are missing the point mate. Is celebrating and joining in with the christmas festisvities setting a good example to young impressionable kids in the houshold? Many Sikh families have become agnostic as it is. Also it maybe harmless fun for a devout Sikh. Who is secure in his faith. but not all sikhs come from this secure background. Many will grow up thinking Sikhs will celebrate and join in with anything and everthing in the name of having a bit of fun. Such aa celebrating hindu occasions aswell. Just because 'its a bit of fun' as you say. Not to mention Sikhs who hardly cel

  36. Yes we do sit on chairs and wear socks, but we do also remove them and sit on the floor, if we want so. Have you ever been into a Gurdwara? How do you find us there? is it not similar to the video in your post? Then? What is your problem? Out of respect and tradition, when someone is doing parchar or keertan, we do sit in front of them on the floor and remove our socks. Chaudray jee, if you respect yourself, just respect our traditions. It is obvious, you have not paid attention to a single word in your video posted, rather looking at the surroundings.

  37. "Chaudry" Sahib da export da kamm hai: Here's his website: https://www.exportersindia.com/punjab/socks.htm Why are you all getting into his business? He was asking an earnest question, as to whether these Sikhras don't own any socks. He was a poor exporter looking to make a fortune selling each Sikh in the world two pairs of socks. Vechara Chaudry Sahib! Reminds me of this tuk: ਇਲਤਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਉ ਚਉਧਰੀ ਕੂੜੀ ਪੂਰੇ ਥਾਉ ॥ Eilath Kaa Naao Chaudhri Koorree Poorae Thhaao || The trouble-maker is called a leader, and the liar is seated with honor.

This story referred to below is about the time that the Nihangs had come to take over the Akal Takht, As the Akali leaders were in the bazaar, the Nihangs managed to get into the Akal Takht. You this account to state that the Nihangs had control of the Akal Takht from 1800s to 1920. A few hours in charge and then they received a beating.

I don't know whether she broke his legs but there were plenty of ex-soldiers among the Akalis who would have been quite capable of breaking legs if required. Your story is getting more and more ridiculous. You want us to believe that from being hunted down and having shoot on sight order in 1845 they Nihangs are in control of the Akal Takht in 1920! That ex-soldiers who had seen more violence and death and destruction that a Nihang could only imagine were so scared to confront the N

  44. YOU HAVE NOT PROVIDED ANY PROOF FROM 1920! Are you so thick that you don't understand that a reference from 1846 does not mean the same thing was the case in 1920. Come on, if you can locate a reference from 1846, a time when there were a lot less books being written, surely you can get a reference from 1920 when there were dozens of newspapers and magazines being published.

  45. Nihangs have been used by anti-Panthic forces against the Panth in the past and no doubt they will be used as such in future. They had an anti-panthic role in 1920 and their leader was Indira Gandhi's chumcha in 1984.

  46. You seem to have a major issue with Jhabbar. Are you perhaps related to the congressi Jhabal family? As for the Virks, It was because of Virks among others that Gurjranwala was the centre of the Sikh empire. You might want to look up Bhag Singh Virk. So you cannot tolerate the breaking of the maryana inside Harmandir Sahib. So how do you feel about the fact that the party that the Jhabal helped infiltrate into the rural Punjab also attacked the Harmandir Sahib in 1984? If you are a relative of the jhabals then only God know what a fool you must be trying to make them look Panthic by attack

  47. I haven't written anything against Dasam Granth. You are just spreading misinformation. You've been countered on the SA forum four years ago. There are no reference about the Akal Takht having a Nihang Jathedar in 1920. You only provided reference to the Nihangs being at Akal Takht in the 1830s. How would you feel if someone said today that Sikhs are the rulers of Lahore in 2013 because the Sikhs were ruling there in 1845? I urge others to read the full thread on SA. It is an eye opener which shows how these sanatan fools are trying to rewrite Sikh history.

  48. I think you guys are confusing the issue and not presenting all the facts. The use of chairs in the diwan hall is only for the elderly and disabled. I dont see anything wrong with it. This issue has been discussed lots of time under titles such as wheelchairs in the gurdwara etc. just do a search.
