  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. SSA, don't worry I don't think your id is hacked. It's more likely that there is some bug in the forum software. There is another update pending that we will apply soon that may fix issues like these. Hackers don't spend time to get into websites to mess around with individual accounts like this. What could have happened is that you liked a post but the like never got saved to the database. Next time you visited the topic it showed up as not liked. If you guys see odd behaviour then please msg me with details of what happened, what you were doing and browser . Thanks Balait
  12. Speaking of attention, I was thinking how we simply follow our elders in one way or another. For example, ardase being read at the gurdwara. People give money and Want their name read out (God help the granthi ji if he gets it wrong), this to me is no different to youngsters posting on Facebook to get likes.
  13. Congratultions on the little one. We named our baby boy Jasdeep Singh. Deep for short.
  14. There are two gurdwaras in my town. Women spend the entire 3 days of akhand paths in the kitchen cooking and talking. Forget about the different variety of sabjiyan that get prepared, there are tonns of different kinds of sweets made as well, besan, gulabjamun etc The point I was making was that a lot of people now days are relying on foodbanks etc so if each gurdwara ran a simmilar programme but for the langar then that would stop us sikhs from turning the langar into a all you can consume free meal. Check out the site below... http://www.trusselltrust.org/foodbank-projects
  15. So i was reading the discussion about langar in the other topic and remembered the sakhi of this sikh couple who would do seva in langar and then eat langar every day. I think they were told that langar became like a payment from the guru to them so they were advised not to consume langar all the time. I might be wrong as i was very young when i read that sakhi. Anyway, so in our gurdwaras usually there is langar leftover after everyone has eaten. There is mad rush to fill tomato tins, Tupperware etc with langar to take home. As we know many people are struggling with expenses, should we be promoting langar to non Sikhs? There could be a list of people who sevadars could send the leftover langar. It would be better than us lot overeating langar. We used to do this at our old location, there was an old peoples home nearby and we used to send them the food.
