  1. An update on the Gurdwara Sahib building. please donate and forward the donation link to contacts
  2. WJKK WJKF, everyone can see the current progress online https://www.facebook.com/100064734064661/posts/pfbid02CR1zjLhuh4vS6Cc7tmjD8CiQY8rzFmXxQx1sV3scN964jk6C3LCPyTjhg1xfhStJl/ It is disheartening to see that not much has been donated by the online community since I posted this topic. There was a time when we would raise tens of thousands on the forum. Please can you spread the word and help out. When you donate, please mention the forum online.
  3. The plans are on the justgivig page. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/gurunanakgurdwara-singhsabha They have been approved by the council and some work has already been carried out e.g. the asbestos roof has been removed. I will ask them for a better picture.
  4. I know the gurdwara sahib and the Sangat there. I can assure you that , all of the funds are going to be used for the gurdwara sahib refurbishment. Gurdwara sahib is located in the town centre and close to the Preston train station. Therefore, compared to other UK gurdwaras which are more in residential areas, this gurdwara and the sangat makes an immediate impression on the visitors of Preston, whether they are sikhs or not. Here are some examples of how gurdwara sahib makes a big difference in people's lives in Preston and tries to engage with non sikhs. https://www.facebook.com/prestonsikhsewa/ -> All of the food gets prepared in the gurdwara As well as feeding the homeless, they have Punjabi classes etc. Today at the gurdwara sahib there will be a workshop for kids to tie dastars.
  5. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa | Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/gurunanakgurdwara-singhsabha Guru Nanak Gurdwara Singh Sabha is the oldest Gurdwara Sahib in Preston, Lancashire, UK. Established in 1966, the Gurdwara Sahib has been a special place of learning and worship for Sikhs community and alike. Situated in the heart of the city centre and close to the university, the Gurdwara Sahib has served both the international students and the homeless community in Preston. Over the past decade the demands from the building have grown however, the community has been restricted due to costs of the project and the state of the building. During the Gurpurab's (traditional celebrations), weddings and larger events, the Sadh Sangat have to make the use of the car park (see photo) to accommodate the Langar service. The larger hall in the building cannot be used due to asbestos present in the roof and the condition of the room.. However, the issue of having an asbestos roofing has now been rectified and the new Divaan Hall (once completed) is envisaged to be two times bigger than the current one. This would allow the current Divaan Hall to be used as the Langar Hall Therefore, we are humbly requesting your donations and contributions towards the upcoming internal and upgrade work. Please forward this appeal to others in your network to help build the building a safer and more open space for worship and community gatherings. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/gurunanakgurdwara-singhsabha If you need to find out more, you can follow the updates on this justgiving.com or on this topic on sikhsangat.com. https://www.facebook.com/prestongurdwara19a/ https://www.instagram.com/preston_gurdwara_19a/ You can also contact and visit the Gurdwara Sahib at: 19a Bow Lane, Preston, Lancashire. United Kingdom. Phone: +441772 251008. Email: gngss.bow@gmail.com
  6. What is sangats opinion on graves (no headstones) on the gurdwara premises. Committee is considering buying a church and it has some burials. I personally don't think it is a big deal as long as we are respectful. The burials are out of the way and could be turned into flowerbeds etc with a hedge/fence around them.
  7. My main issue is the hypocritical attitude of desis. How many came through the lorries or other means and now are resenting students for wanting the same. There is no denying that large number of the students are not genuine but at least they have a chance to do something else here than in Punjab.
  8. Thanks all. He has found accomodation. He will share a house with few other students from India to minimize costs. It seems like a lot of Apne are trying to make a quick buck out of Indian students. He was quoted almost £300/month by one Singh and that was sharing a room with another student. He also said that he got a lot of stares at the gurdwara. There has been a large influx of students in UK due to change in English requirements. I don't think the existing Punjabis are warming up to the idea.
  9. WJKK WJKF, Sangat jee, a family friend has come to UK to study in Birmingham. Unfortunately I live quite far so the Singh needs a room to rent. Does anyone know any room share or rent share in Birmingham or surrounding areas. He will be studying at the Birmingham City University. He is an Amritdhari Singh and will be studying masters. Please let me know if there is anything suitable. Balait
  10. I use two paid resources but as I am a software engineer, I need to keep up with the tech. These are pluralsight and packtpub. I also travel almost three hours per day so I just listen to the courses on pluralsight whilst driving. Technology landscape is changing. You cannot restrict yourself to one language. I jump between c#, java, python, JavaScript and lot more from project to project. It's hard to say what would be in demand but front end work (JavaScript angular) is quite popular. C# can offer you a steady income and lot more if you are quite experienced but front end work can offer you more. JavaScript now will mean you can code client side using angular and server side using nodejs. But it's hard to say which one to go with. If you are making the switch professionally then look at the job market first in your area and what they ask for.
  11. Likes functionality is pretty much the same as the Facebook like feature. Someone like what you wrote or they like the fact that you are having a problem with the forum and it makes them happy Can't really say much about the YouTube dots but cannot investigate yet as i am on the mobile.
  12. Think of it this way, if she was going to run off then she would have already. You have an advantage here, your potential wife here is going to be more considerate because her family had already gone through a lot of hassle already. Bottom line, you shouldn't judge her or her family because of one family member.
  13. If anyone is still interested about the site we have upgraded the forum software and server software. Hopefully things will be a bit more stable.
  14. Fateh, We have a lot of pending updates and made the forum as secure as we could previously. We are looking at upgrading soon so hopefully things will become stable. We will also be reviewing the site security again to make sure everything is good. For now we have to opt for on/off method.
  15. Can't you secretly record them? Once you have evidence then take it to HR and if they don't take an.apropriate action then put it online. When the company's reputation is on the line, your company won't side with them.
