  1. Names like Arshdeep and Sukhdeep should also be avoided in the west.

  2. There were huge protests around India and many Sikhs helped protestors and very vocal about opposing the bills some years back. But why exactly did Sikhs oppose NRC & CAA? Wouldn't that bill be beneficial to Sikhs? Since it granted a swifter path to Indian citizenship under the assumption of religious persecution to any individual belonging to the specific minorities of Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan, who entered India on or before 31 December 2014. According to the Intelligence Bureau, the immediate beneficiaries of

  3. We've had a failed 'war on drugs'. The 'war on terror' has turned out to be a debacle. What I'm now proposing brothers and sisters, is our own 'war on bhangra (and giddah)'. Are you with me people!!!!

  4. They are probably following standard Hindu/Indian names. There's also an Indian cricketer named Hardik Pandya, maybe they're fans? I don't think they realise what the names mean. A few prefix/suffix Panjabi names can also end up sounding weird! That's why I believe traditional Sikh/Panjabi names were best prior to this suffix/prefix trend.

  5. I've heard of Gujaratis having these names, never apne. I once worked with a Harshit, the guy was obviously embarrassed by his name and abbreviated it to just Harsh.

  6. Sikhs are unprepared not because they think that God will hand them the raaj on a platter but they are unprepared because they have gotten used to the comforts of life and think nothing is going to happen so no need to do anything. Just look at the state of the world in 2022. Things were not like this before 2020. The world can change any moment but alot of Sikhs are so used to comfort they think nothing is going to happen. Specifically the ones in western countries. People who are too used to comfort will be the worst hit by a war. In fact people in India living in worse conditions can face t

  7. The world would be way worse if these people were not born. I think their purpose is basically to direct people towards the truth. How did Baba Banda Singh Bahadur change after meeting Guru Gobind Singh jee? Many people who sometimes are on the wrong path realize the truth after meeting pure souls.

  8. Any discussion on this topic would need to begin with discussing why your username is “Misterr” rather than “Mr”. You might say ‘mr was already taken’. But serious point - that’s how some peculiar names/id’s come about. What the person wanted was not available, so they picked something else. Even as a bit of a joke, maybe an auto suggestion, then it sort of sticks with them in real life. The names you mention probably originate from gaming platforms

  10. Veerji, in all my posts, I have never said that we are looking at Shaheed Singhs as our saviors and we should sit home and do nothing. What I am speaking about is the truth that Vaheguru ji always has a Shaheed Singh Fauj presence in earth that always guide us and are always in Chardikala for Khalsa Raj. As a panth and as a Khalsa it is all of our duties to ensure the stability of the Panth. The responsibility does lie on us but that doesn't mean that there isn't a Shaheed Fauj present with us.

  11. What makes it worse is how these Punjabi women dance these days, mimicking the men with their hands in the air, stomping their feet on the ground. At least the giddha from back in the day had some feminine qualities to it.

  14. I preferred Punjabi names even prior to the "Preet", "Pal", "Inder", etc., Punjabi etymological movement of the 1960s onward, lol. It's sad that we'll never see young Sikhs with names likes Manmohan, Harbans, etc.

  16. Are you referring to saints being born in kalyug? If you are then let me just share something. Those saints and pure souls who have taken birth despite it being kalyug, they come in Pyaar. They come because they have experienced Vaheguru ji's kirpa and they want to spread it to others . Their not born in a wrong yug! Their purpose is to change the yug and spread the qualities of Satyug. Other souls that come are also Shaheed Singhs and Singhnis. They come for similar reasons as well. Some come to get justice, such as the thousands of Khalsa that have taken birth and are all present now mostly

  18. Would you believe it! There’s a growing fashion trend in UK since last 10 years where teenage boys and young guys with kesh tie their hair back and wear a patka or african ‘durag’. They feel ashamed even to be seen with a joora on their heads. Meanwhile in Punjab (from what I see via social media) it’s rare to see an older teenager wearing patka. By age 14 onwards boys are tying really beautiful dastar or dumala.

  21. At first I was going to correct you to say that he hasn't been President since January 2021 ... but then I realize that this is another @MisterrSingh head-fake. Nice. But it just goes to show, it doesn't matter how much these politicians pay lip service to diversity and minorities, and such. Sikhs always seem to get the short end of the stick.

  22. What I mean is the names are so similar like majority of Punjabi have names like gurpreet harpreet harinder. Old school names are barely used. Its just weird to have majority of names sound so similar. The names are not an issue its the fact that literally majority of the names are so similar with no variation

  23. Old ones were fine, too. The prefix/suffix names are fine, if parents give a thought to what prefix you are applying. I mean, some of those names have no recognizable meaning, others have no recognizable Gurmat meaning. Once these become extinct, some parents will use them again, I think. When a name becomes too common, you lose all thought of the beautiful meanings of such names, and I think that's what happened with them, they became old and tired: ਮਨ-ਮਹੋਨ: The One who enchants ਹਰ-ਬੰਸ: Of the lineage of God

  26. I am not necessarily talking about Saints but more like ordinary everyday people who would typically be Satyugi type people. These types of people might be completely unaware of what they are but find themselves out of sorts in the type of society we live in. I sometimes get the feeling that Maharaj's hukam works paradoxically in some cases as well as linearly and cyclically. It must be some kind of test to see how these Satyugi types cope in a scenario in which they would typically struggle in. Conversely for all we know there may have been Kalyugi types in Satyug era.

  32. I think so. Might come up sooner than people think too. We have to be careful of characteristic stupidity from juts in our panth too. Simranjeet Singh Mann has proven this with recent statements.

  33. Always keep your eyes open and think critically. Never let anyone you care about be drawn into the circle of these degenerates no matter what public front they convey. Granted, some people are very good at keeping secrets, but most let the mask slip.

  34. I've noticed the media tends to highlight "Sikh" if a person of Sikh origin commits a crime. Yet they refrain from writing Pakistani or Muslim if someone of that background does anything wrong. Especially the UK media seems to have an anti-Sikh rhetoric running. The BBC has also received criticism for pro-Muslim bias in their reporting. Another one is when Al-Jazeera, an Arab-Muslim news network made a hypocritical video on UK Gurdwaras not allowing interfaith Anand-Karaj but they never question Muslims for not allowing interfaith weddings in their religion.

  38. Make up, lighting and photoshopping. If you saw her in real life, she won't even look like these pictures. She will just be a tall ,skinny,gangly South Indian girl. Saw Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra at Heathrow once. Both are a lot darker in real life and Shah Rukh is very grey, he looks a lot older in real life. These guys have bad diets, smoke like chimneys and get very little sleep.

  39. In the year 1510 AD, Taajudin Naqshbandi, a Persian/Arabic writer met Guru Nanak Dev ji during his journey through the Middle East. For the next two years, Taajudin lived with the Guru and kept a detailed eyewitness account in a manuscript titled Siyahto Baba Nanak Fakir. After taking a leave from Guru ji, Taajudin deposited the manuscript in a library in Medina. In the year 1927, Mushtaq Hussein a young man from Kashmir, while studying as a moulvi in Medina came across Taajudin's manuscript. The manuscript changed Mushtaq's life, and he converted to Sikhism and and went on to bec

  40. Quick thing The Sau Sakhi split into 5 was actually 500 sakhis written by Baba Ram Koer which has been misplaced. The remaning 100 that stayed with one of the 5 singhs has been produced by the patiala Museum. I have it upstairs some where If you wish to purchase the Steeks of the Sri Sarbloh Granth edited by the Buddha Dal you can purchase it from DTF Bookstore in the UK. The best steeks on the Sau Sakhi are by Giani Partap Singh Mehta produced by Chattar Singh Jeevan Singh. They are available from the Sikh Missionary centre in Southall. This again is a set of two books for around £8. Very
