  1. My sister learns tabla at bebe ki gurdwara, hockley in Birmingham...its near Soho Road gurdwara below the flyover going to the city centre. The Gurdwara looks kinda deserted and has unfinished building work...but I like to think of it as being like the freezing cold Namdhari gurdwara - the building might need more work but there is excellence in music. You didn't say if you were from Birmingham but if you are then this is the best place to learn. Its taught by Narinder and the teaching is all classical. They are actually trying to do gurmat sangeet how it was in the olden days with sarangi an
  2. The answer to this is that no two people following the same religion will follow it exactly the same. Also in general its accepted that we incorporate things into our life once they start makin sense to us. Ie just because our faith says do not remove ure hair: this does not mean people follow it. Infact suprisingly the majority of Sikhs actually cut or remove their hair. But we must remember that someone might cut their hair and later on they may start keeping hair. This is cos they understood/had the belief and hence they incorporated it into their life. Likewise someone will keep this reh
  3. I don't mind questions and no question is ever naive. I think you people are confused. From what I can gather your thinking its cos non gursikhs are untouchable and so anything nongursikhs touch becomes impure. This is absolutely not the reason. It's not about looking down upon anyone; the people concerned only want their food made a certain way. I have about 8 mins to explain this before I have to go and catch my train home so please excuse me if my explanation is short. So let me begin explaining - This rehat involves the belief that you are what you eat. The society we live in already be
  4. I think we should respect people's lifestyle. As people may or may not know there are group of Gursikhs who only eat food cooked by Gursikh people. This is actually part of their rehat. Shopping for raw things like potatoes, vegetables from shops such as Sainsburys is okay as its not cooked food. As is being served by people at Sainsburys for these raw goods....but you see the actual cooking has to done by fellow Gursikhs. Since it is part of their Amritdhari Rehat then I think we should stop trying to force them to break it. Anyways to bring the thread back to topic: sher_punjabi did u fin
  5. This problem came about due to huge public scrutiny of superbugs like MRSA. The hospitals in essence responded by introducing all these policies however no one knows if they make a signnificant difference ie do we actually know whether wearing kara increases infection rates? In my opinion they need to conduct more studies before writing everything off as being infectious. Also as msckan said I too refuse to take my kara off when people are allowed to wear wedding rings. Anyways enough of my opinion: I think msckan you should google for the sikh doctors medical association and see if they hel
  6. In the olden days it was mother, father, then mummy, daddy, then mum and dad. Likewise language is always changing. Veer actually means warrior. In the olden days girls would call their brothers warriors ie veerji.....then people started calling brothers bhai ji....and from BHAI JI people shortened it to PAJI. Likewise people shortened the word BHEN JI to PENJI for girls. Personally I prefer to say Veer Ji rather than Paji since the word Veer has heritage and a deeper meaning. But each to their own.

  23. By reading this and the inconvenience caused I don't think we should allow bollywood filming at all. I don't understand how this article leads to the conclusion that the golden temple had no control over what scenes were to be shooted. Normally you have a contract and its within ure right to know what is going to be filmed and how etc so if something goes wrong u can ask for it to be deleted. When I was little I had a film made of me and in my contract it had notes about my rights. It covered everything from how I can change the editing if I did not like it down to little details like storage
  24. I just came across this thread. This is going to be offtopic but in this hukamnamma it talks about 5 tigers and 10 wolves....does anyone know what this is in reference too, I've never come across this before.
  25. I dunno if its me but I think sikh names are easy to work out. Most people have one of these in their name - deep/dip - jot/jyot - preet/prit - jit/jeet - vir/bir - inder/vinder - sharan/charan - there are more but cannot remember them! Anyways I wanna see real pics.
