  1. Look, the same points you made about Gujarati Kenyans, I can say the same thing about Sikh/Punjabi Kenyans. They were more educated on average than immigrants direct from India. I worked with a Gujarati from India and he told me that Gujaratis are not known for being educated. Compare Gujaratis from Kenya to Punjabis from Kenya and also Gujaratis from India to Punjabis from India.

  2. Stop marrying these Punjabans and shipping them over to the West. There's no excuse for it in this day and age. You're not getting an obedient, dutiful, demure female from over there. They don't respect Western born guys unless they're complete gundeh, in which case they bring a who!e new set of problems to the table. The common religion between the two parties is a misleading trait. It's irrelevant. Cultural values and upbringing is where it's at. Baba and dera culture has spiralled out of control in Punjab. It's a miracle to find a family that isn't into this stuff. Your brother needs to make her see sense. He needs to lead and be worth following. He needs to stop hiding behind mummy and daddy, and grow a pair so that the wife's previous beliefs, whatever they are, she willingly discards in favour of her husband's values. A woman automatically does this when she perceives her man is worth deferring to. If she's playing up, she's detected a weakness, and she's exploiting it. So the problem of her running around after pandits is irrelevant. The issue is that your brother has been unable to put an end to this bukwaas for the sake of stabilising his married life and home. That's his fault.

  4. I am talking from personal experience. The Punjabis were working in factories mostly. Mostly from villages. Opening a shop is seen as marginally better. Plus being peaceful they made a positive impact on the perception of Indians generally. Gujjus were also better qualified and hence became accountants too. The fact that they came with nothing is not because they had nothing as most had huge assets in Africa which they were forced to leave behind. The fact is that the Kenyian economy virtually collapsed and they invited the Indians to return with a promise if their assets back. If they were forced into detention camps it was not their fault.

  5. Good on the sikh kid. A few days ago some kid was making fun of my brother's dastaar, got the sh1t beaten out of him, guess I've taught my brother well. The kid learnt a good lesson, don't think he'll be messing around anymore.

  6. Oh the people that have moved abroad as young people in my family have been repaying their parents back and been working pretty hard abroad to pay for themselves. It's sad to see the kids not taking any responsibilities or becoming independent. We're not going to get anywhere if our majority can't look after themselves.

  7. Bodybuilder marries sex doll after long-term romance A bodybuilder from Kazakhstan decided 2020 wasn’t already weird enough, so married a sex doll he’s been “dating” for nearly two years. https://www.news.com.au/sport/sports-life/bodybuilder-marries-sex-doll-after-longterm-romance/news-story/a2c68f4438e48886a345048e3fef756a https://www.instagram.com/p/CIIPe8npdbJ/

  8. There's gonna be some hate no matter what. I saw a few major goray 'meme' pages on insta posting about how good the Sikhs are and most of the comments were actually really nice. There was one that i think was written in Arabic to a mate, google translate didn't help but it said somethng about Hindu. It's kind of good to get recognised for once.

  9. I can't go vegan. Literally impossible for me. My mum would kill me if I stop drinking milk. Back to OP, a lot of people go vegan for health as well. Gorey loose a lot of weight from cutting back all the meat.

  13. The first time I ties a dastaar I was 4 years old. It was when I did this sakhi/katha at gurdwara sahib. Then I started wearing dastaar more constantly around the age of 5. Up until I was 13 my mum used to tie it for me but now I do it myself. I used to do the final part myself but then I started doing it all myself my own style. I used to try to tie it at home when I was 8-10 years old but never really got it until I was 13. It got better after time. I took pics when I first started tying my own dastar and compared it to now, there's a difference. You'll get it eventually.

  14. If she's right, then punjabi men are pretty bad as well. But seriously, what is wrong with these people, have they got some mental disorder thinking god loves you even though you're a kanjar.

  15. But sometimes hanging out with males is a bit better than hanging out with females. Too much drama with most females these day. With most males, you can actually have a proper conversation about something interesting. But I get where you're coming from.

  16. of course they are, cause this is the 21st century where theres freedom of speech as long as its no 'hate'. sikhs are allowed to have gay marriges and are allowed to do bujjar kurehats and can do whatever the f they want cause religion has no importance anymore **Edit** Im being sarcastic

  18. Women arent supposed to be in panj pyare. I heard in this katha that women have a role of giving birth physically and men have a role of giving birth spiritually. Thats like saying 'we need more men giving physical birth'

  20. Yes, Guru Sahib penned them on top. If you look at early Birhs of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, they all have them on top generally with the rule I had mentioned. They were not mixed, bottomed, and centered how they are like current saroops and senchyia printed today by printers. I don't care about the SGPC, but please don't call scholars like Bhai Randhir Singh (Scholar), Gyani Gyan Singh Ji Nihung, Nihang Naurang Singh (One who standarized Sarabloh Granth), Bhai Joginder Singh Vedanti, and Bhai Joginder Singh Talwara as lacking knowledge on Sikhi. They have spent more time studying Puratan Saroops than all of us.

  21. Please don't take this is a bad way, this had nothing to do with money. This was done by demands from Sikh Scholars, literally most early Birhs from the 1700's have the Manglacharans on top. There is a standard rule, the Manglacharan would be on the right side, while the raag + mahala would be on the left side (but still lower than the Manglacharan). If you look at very old saroops, you can see this system present. Slowly it went away as more "artistic" birhs started being scribed. Please don't bring in other un-releared issues pls.

  22. Don't think so - it comes in Bani as well. Bhagat Dhanna says "Gopal Tera Aarta". Other shabads have "Aarti". So they call it Aarti-aarta or most of the time, just Aarti.
