  1. Try harder. It's a waste of time and emotional effort. Learn a practical skill that you normally pay another person to do (home repair / maintenance, etc) or a martial art to aid fitness. Or just read something. I was a little more than an average gamer but not quite hardcore. I was in my late 20s, mindlessly bashing buttons one day. Opposite from where I was sitting was a mirror. I saw myself, a grown man, playing a video game, and it hit me like a ton of bricks; a tide of overwhelming shame washed over me. "You soft b*****d" I said to myself. Next day I sold my consoles and all my games

  3. This is just my take on this There's an increasing number of Panjabis in western countries learning Bhangra professionally, making Bhangra societies in universities and holding grand Bhangra competitions. Although Bhangra is a hybrid dance done by males with modern hip-hop moves, women are also seen in these competitions & performances. Some parents in the west are encouraging their children to learn Bhangra from these academies. The reason they give for joining is Bhangra connects them with Panjabi culture and they feel "proud" seeing their children on stage. I don't think Bhan

  4. As requested, my story in detail: So as I mentioned, during my younger years my mum had me involved in the gurdwara and I would probably go atleast once a week if not more. All the usual gurdwara trips and gurmukh camps used to be part of my normal life. I would play football with the lads from the gurdwara and would be active in social events. I am mona and whilst I reflect back and wish I had stuck with that crowd, I realise there was a part of me that felt like I didnt fit in (because I was mona). I naturally started hanging around with a different crowd which was all good at the time

  5. It is not non-Muslim countries that actively invite Muslims in, it is the liberals in these countries that emotionally backmail the rest of the population into allowing Muslim migration in and shout 'racist!' if there is any voice which wants to restrict their migration into non-Muslims countries. In Punjab it is the same, it is liberal organisations that started the trend to build Mosques for them and started the propaganda that they are 'beecharay' Countries that have voted in right wing governments understand the danger of Muslim migrations, countries such as Hungary, Poland and Serbi

  7. There is a misconception here among some apne that only Mirpuris are carrying out grooming activities in the UK. The reality is some of you are naive. Many grooming gangs have been Pakistani Punjabis, and even Bangladeshis and Afghans. The partition violence, genocide and mass rapes were initiated and committed by Punjabi Muslims against Sikhs. The forced conversion of Sikh girls in Pakistan is carried out by Punjabi Muslims. Pakistani Punjabis are themselves no better than Mirpuris but scapegoat Mirpuris for everything wrong in their own communities. Many of the groomers have been

  8. Although people accept the Shahmukhi script as a valid script for Punjabi, there are number of Punjabi words which can be misread if they are written in Shahmukhi script rather than Gurmukhi. We need to stop catering to their whims and insist that Gurmukhi is the only script for Punjabi. One thing that I have noticed is how Pakistanis misspell Sikh names as well as other words associated with Sikhi. I think it is intentional, a way to show that these are unimportant.

  9. I love you Watch the movie chaar sahibzaade, read jeevan of sants, and shaheeds. Channel the emotion towards how special opportunity you got. You got a chance at Sikhi only because countless died for it. Remember them, pray for strength like they had The only reason you fall is because you’re trying in the first place. It’s never too late.

  12. The Lower Mainland gang violence disproportionately involves (Canadian-born) Punjabis. Most of the gangland killings involve Punjabis killing other Punjabis. The police considers them mostly low-level guys who can’t control themselves, unlike the sophisticated Asian and Biker gangs that work silently but control most of the networks. It’s saddening to see another dead young brown kid every second week. It has nothing to do with bullying or racism, or other any economic reasons. They come from our typical well-off Punjabi households with immigrant parents who have worked hard to realize th

To alleviate this, the source of life, the universe and creation, manifested themselves in the form of our Guru's to show the world a path to eternal peace and freedom that lies within each of us. To walk this path, our Guru's instructed us to rise in the golden hours of the morning and seek connection to that source through remembrance and bhagti (devotion). Through connection our pains will be lifted and we'll become truly str

I was actually meaning on starting a similar thread on this topic and still probably will as I have so much to show and say. It's mindsets like SinghPunjabSingh that are actually a part of the problem. The racism from said community is much much more widespread than he thinks as this is happening in the UK too and is not at all limited to a handful of crackheads as suggested. No, this does not mean we should start 'hating' the community (I have to say th

  16. I think you need to step back and put your ego in check @shastarSingh. Referring to Baba Nand Singh Ji with such little respect isn't in your interest. These Mahapursh have contributed to Sikhi in ways we can't put a number to. Inspiring people to follow Sikhi in a genuine way and igniting the joy of bhagati is not an easy task. You can lump all intellectuals gyanis and parcharks on one side and they can never inspire the way a mahapursh Sant mahatma can. Don't take this the wrong way, we need all the intellectuals we can get, but their domain is never going to extend into the realms of these

  17. Indian origin faiths don't have the cunningness, hatred and aggression to deal with Abrahamic faith's especially Islam. Malaysia and Indonesia were once Hindu/Buddhists and now they are overwhelmingly Muslim. Islam wants to conquer, they see secularism as a weakness to expose and when Muslims become a majority they impose sharia which forbids the populace from leaving Islam. So it's a one way win win situation for them. You can never have a Liberal attitude towards them or it will come back to bite you.

  18. It was the lived experience of millions of Sikhs. I would venture that Arjan Singh was a more articulate, sophisticated and adventurous person than someone like you who gets triggered at any mention of Sikhs in the army in WW1 or WW2. Whatever your views about him, he deserves to be honoured as do all those Sikhs who left Punjab to fight in both world wars. Another 'illiterate pendu' I found apparently this 'pendu' went on earn a PhD and fought the racist citizenship policies of the USA.

  19. These kinds of petitions don't work. If we had more unity, then all the Gurdwaras should declare her persona non grata. They should declare that they will not engage with any ministers or any conservative MPs or candidates unless Priti Patel is sacked. That would be much for effective than a petition. Priti Patel is a joke, she has been a total failure on the migrants coming on boats from France.

  20. Pakistanis in the USA are simply in far fewer numbers than the UK. White Americans are probably less likely to take any nonsense from them as well, most of them have guns. Even if more Mirpuris are involved than Pakjabis, both Mirpuris and Pakjabis hang out at school and are likely to influence each other. I cannot emphasise this enough - Islam comes before any silly concept of Punjabayat, which only laloo Sikhs believe in.

Punjab was part of the indus civilization and today we are in clash with the ganges civilization. We are taught a history that doesnt even belong to us. Punjab has a very old history starting from ancient persia. The punjabi language is very old and has evolved since then. The people of the ganges hate the indus civilization and are hell bent on destroying the punjabi language in both east and west punjab.

They have committed so many crimes on a large scale against people of color but act like they are defenders of morals. What a joke. Thats why every sikh needs to learn martial arts and show these people their place. When all we do is act like victims on social media they think we are weak.

  24. Lmao, bull5hit. Again, what's the definition of "pray" and how is it enacted? What exactly are they praying for, btw? This is like when people were polled about who they'd vote for between Trump and Hillary. People overwhelmingly asserted for Hillary... then the results came in and Trump won, which means the polled folks didn't reveal their true thoughts / intentions. There's a specific term for this phenomena that I can't remember at this time.

  27. From my understanding, Gurbani doesn’t dimmish the contributions of avataars, like Krishan and Raam, but reminds us of their limitations and end mortality. It’s telling us to look beyond the messenger. The way to convey this to the sangat is not easy. That’s why you have extreme positions in the Panth with some discarding all aspects of vedant/sanatan references and concepts, while the other extreme leaving sikhi indistinguishable from another branch of sanatan dharm. Also, giving references from gita is the same as Gurbani mentioning various events and personalities from the past. I

  31. Because that's what other US Sikhs have reported. It's not hard to look through first-hand accounts. One of the Sikh elderly who got attacked described his attacker as 'kaala' and OFC some retarded liberal Sikh got upset LMAO. He said we shouldn't call them kaala. Like LMAO our elderly man just got brutally attacked and that's what you're concerned about. BLM is cancer. This whole 'minority unison' is CANCER. If black people ever got in charge, as we see in South Africa, they will attack and isolate minorities. Whites and Indians are heavily scared of black people in South Africa.

We’d have some craic but sometimes he would froth at the mouth about Islam, saying that it is the greatest and fastest growing religion and that they were going to take over the UK. I stress that this is an alcohol drinking liberal one. Obviously he would never say this to any gora. The purpose of Islam is to dominate non-Muslims - that’s their opium. They pray en masse in the streets in France and in parks in the UK to gain a sense of control over public spaces and to intimidate kafirs. The high birthrate is another

Then we ask ourselves the question ," we thought us Sardars were so respected" We think it is through our good deeds that we were respected. No, it was through violence we were respected. It is through fear that Hindus and Muslims respect. They have lost fear. There is a Macchiavelli quote that says , " It is better to be feared than loved" Whenever I see the T-Shirts worn by our Singhs that says " Feared by none, Fear no one",

Meanwhile, at least 3000 Sikhs killed in Delhi in 1984. Thousands elsewhere, plus who knows how many more later on in Punjab. And basically not a peep from world governments. No taking over the entirety of a half-hour or hour news show to talk about Sikhs. No marches, no kesri flags on lapel pins. Was the Sikh situation discussed in the UN security council?? So that's why we don't really need to bother with

  39. It's always the case that our people have a few bad experiences and they shout it out from the rooftops as if their experiences represent the norm. We will accept all sorts of rubbish from non-Sikhs and not complain but when one of ours does anything wrong we go hyper. Also be careful of so-called 'experiences' many non-Sikhs are not averse to pretending to be Sikhs to badmouth Sikh institutions. Interesting how the OP asks about anyone who went to Baru Sahib as if he wants to know of any experiences and yet the title already has the leading title 'bad experiences'

  40. Indian colonial policies in Punjab exactly mirror the British colonial policies in India. Just as it was in the British economic interest to turn India into a raw materials suppliers which could then be exported to Britain and then the value added finished goods in British factories which could then be sent to India to be sold, in the same way Indian colonialism keeps Punjab a underdeveloped agricultural colony. Hindi imperialism is just one aspect of Indian colonialism. In the globalised world, Punjabis have more need for a language like English than Hindi. The only two languages than matter
