  1. Check out gumtree.com Easymove.com Your uni's accomodation office and website. Speak to people in yr above (esp final yrs) who will be moving out.
  2. No offence I spent a good 2 hours reading this piece of text and its nothing more than emotional blackmail.
  3. The only unsettling idea is that Kama is unfair....which means that the idea justice is not fair.. If someone could say why human life form is considered special....
  4. Its true. Most people wear knickers but that defies point of kachera.....in my opinion thats just kachera as showpiece. Actually there is a special way to tie your nala where you secure the underneath loose kachera part so you pad does not slip...best thing to do is to ask any aunty from India as its hard to explain. In essence you need a long nala like they had in the old days...you wrap it around our waist, flip it underneath and knot it..but mind you, its not exactly easy so speak to people and do what your conscious says.
  5. Actually Valli Singh I hold a view, which explains why there is no free will. As we all kno we are all molecules.....chemicals.....our emotions, judgement, decision making skills are a complex interactions of these chemicals, memories, clues and past experiences. Therefore we are living nothing more than an interaction of these substances. When we die we are broken down...our molecules become something else...its like energy being changed from one form to another.....therefore yes, I believe in re-incarnation...... But God is described as infinate source of energy which can only be accessed through the human life. Therefore there must be something special about humans....
  6. The only way this would make sense if there was free will where karma can be translated to 'evey action has a consequence'....so the two co-exist mutually... If as you say there is not freewill then the system is highly unfair as the ones suffering are the innocent party and the causer of it all faces none....
  7. So life is not fair as karma is unfair.
  8. I could ask what led to differences of the souls in these places....but that would be going around in circles because you wiil say God decided it...so instead please explain how karma is fair when original difference was God decided.
  9. To bring the discussion back to karma,....If we are to believe souls descended from sach khand due to the above story then the action of the souls was the same....therefore surely the predesined fate of each of us should be the same...but its not so whats the reason for this variable....
  10. So your saying freewill does not exist and how this life is a predestined fate of our last lives....and thus punishment is according to our past actions.....and how we should therefore view life as a domino effect of past lives. So lets go to the life where we were first born...ie the very first first first life.......who decided the first act....how could it be predestined on fate of past lives when there was no life before it....
  11. If there is no freewill how are can we be judged for our actions....
  12. If everything is predestined.....how is there free will
  13. whoah whoah SRK RULES!!!

  14. I'm so stupid. I think I posted a thread but when I checked again it did not appear. Anyways gonna try second time. My friend is doing a project on Indian culture etc. She has covered most things like music, foods, languages, clothes etc. She wants to cover dance and as part of her project she needs to interview various people. If anyone knows of a bharatnatyum dance teacher or group in bham then can you please pass me the contact details. Thanks!
  15. Hey can u email me the number to my msn address cos my sikhsangat messenger is full! Thanks...also if the school has an email address then let me know.
  16. You shouldn't sleep after Amrit vela. I know so many people who get up, don't wash their face but do their prayers and go back to sleep. I am not even going to tell you what I think of this. I feel these people believe Amrit vela is about praying at a certain time but in reality Amrit vela is not about how 3am is more holier than 9pm. Its actually about synchronising your body clock to the natural daylight clock. Therefore whats the point of getting up and giong back to sleep cos u just mess it all up. Amrit vela actually changes.....ie later in winter and earlier in summer. My advice is for you to do amritvela like this.... 1. Get up 2. Shower 3. Change into new clothes 4. Do your prayers 5. Do ardaas 6. Carry on with the rest of the day....
  17. hey I rang the school all day today from 9am in the morning. Then around 11am for break time and 3 or 4 times at lunch time. They only have an answer machine on.....Do you have another direct line number plsssssss???
  18. Hey my messenger has got full! I need to delete some messages. lol. Anyways thanks for the compliment. I've enjoyed reading your posts too!

  19. As a punjaban I can tell you that that you need to research some more. I disagree with the notion that its among the jatts....culturally its widespread across all punjabis with each tribe/caste following it to different levels... I can tell you that its more among the pathara caste/tribe. They go upto grandparents.......so rather than 4 sets of data you have 8 sets to deal with....the rest of the tribes/castes only go as far as parents. Sikhi says nothing about who you marry. Its very open. Marry your dad and your fine cos it doesn't say in Sikhi don't marry your father. Sikhi only says to marry someone who brings you closer to waheguru....if ure father does that then fine marry him... Logically if we think then it does make sense. Its about gene pool and avoiding similar genetics but its upto you if u want to see that. I disagree....its all about the alleles the couple give to the offspring. Obviously beyond cousins the risk of recessive illnesses decrease but that does not mean its not a problem. Medically even if you have a non-cousin marriages you can produce genetically ill children. In all honesty, war, migration, families not talking to each other means this is not possible. I don't know about you but I started doing my family tree and its tough..hence why i appreciate this ancient system of keeping track of relations.
  20. oooOoooo my turn! Fluently English Punjabi Hindi Urdu French Others German Latin Spanish Farsi (Afgan dari) Arabic Gujerati Mandarin
  21. according to sikhi, there is NO restriction on marrying someone who's mother is from the same villiage as yours. please don't encourage jatt culture in a sikhi forum. Jasleen bhanji. i know u mean well but its not jatt culture....its punjabi culture because I know pathare, tarkhans and many other tribes follow the same principles too. Also Punjabi culture is not all bad. In regards to sikhi all souls are considered the same...however that does not mean we marry our dads, brothers or cousins....No where does it say in sikhi that I cannot marry my dad. However it is not acceptable to marry my dad due to the close genetic link. Likewise this is the same prinicple but it is extended to tribes and pinds where genetic features are similar.
  22. what kind of behaviour goes on in these pinds that people don't even know if they're related? :o lol u never know! Jokes. The guy hasn't told us here but I bet you the guys dads and girls mums surname are the same cos pinds are small. Also if ure going in the same pind people are likely to have similar genetic characteristics, features which is why they settled together...so its for that reason that its considered as good as tribal overlap... This question is basically about perspective and whats best...technically we can marry anyone....and we should... But then if i love my cousin should I marry him...in our society marrying ure cousin is taboo.....but in some cultures especially mirpuri culture its actively encouraged as they consider it an insult to reject a family member for a 'foreigner'. You see its all about perspective. For mirpuris not marrying ure cousin is like saying i hate my family, they are not good enough for me so i will get someone else but for the vast majority of the population marrying your cousin is ewwww. Now in all honesty nothing in this world is right or wrong but there is always whats the best practical option. Again best differs for people and in all honesty best is based on individual and society experiences etc. In Punjabi culture people apply the principle of not marrying in close tribal or pind relations. Like I said its to increase the variance more than others might do.
  23. Your definately supposed to not marry someone as the same tribe surname as your parents and or grandparents tribe as your considered to be related, even if you cannot establish a direct link... eg. If my mums tribe is sandhu and my dads tribe is gill then i cannot marry a sandhu or gill. Now I may find a Sandhu or Gill and they may not be related to me but the fact that there is a same tribe name means there was a link somwehere and its considered too close of a relationship. The same goes for the pind thing....your considered too close. Its basically done to keep the gene pool mixed and reduce genetic problems etc.
  24. Omg thats gd news.....one more question....you said i only need to go for the exams - does that mean you have no lessons? Like it says e-learning on the website. What kind of school is it: do we get lessons and will they help me with UCAS???
  25. Thanks I got ure PM, I called the school but it is closed. I wanted to find out the exam boards for sociology and history but the school website does not work....can you also tell me if you do AQA Sociology and History?
