  1. This guys been rolling around got years! His dera is on Ghara Road, Jalandhar. One look at the architecture of his dera is all you need know about this fraud. Open shop for everyone and anyone. Hes got domes with the Jewish star of david, the cross, the moon and star and god knows what other symbols on his building.

    He's definitely on the government payroll and not much different to the Radha Swami outfit but not as large!

  2. Wake Singh!

    There's no smoke without fire! I have utmost respect for Baba Thakur Singh but I am also a realist. It is a well known fact that the Taksal has been heavily infiltrated by the central government.

    KPS Gill has been documented by saying that he would end the Sikh movement where it all started.

    So I don't think Maan Singhs association with the present day Taksal is a good character reference!

  3. For a long time I've heard Singhs crying over one thing, and this finally needs to be said.

    "Sikh girls don't find men with beards and turbans attractive"

    "Sikh girls want clean shaven men"

    "Go to India to find a decent Sikh girl who will accept your kesh"

    "I think about cutting my hair so girls will like me"

    What have you guys been smoking?

    Firstly, how do you define "Sikh" girls? It seems that most people are actually referring to typical Punjabi kurriya, in which case, why is the word "Sikh" being thrown around? It takes A LOT more to be a Sikh of the Guru than simply being born into a Punjabi Sikh family. Punjabi and Sikh = two entirely different things, stop confusing them!!

    Secondly, why do these "Sikh" men with beards and dastara want to be with these cut haired, night club type Punjabi girls? Why do they want so badly to be accepted and liked by them? It is beyond me.

    Thirdly, if you're the type of "Singh" who considers cutting your hair so some shallow girl will like you, how can you even consider yourself a Singh? Putting some girl in front of your Guru... I would never want to be with someone like you.

    You guys are so deluded. Although I'm aspiring to become an amritdhari Singhni, even before I was into Sikhi I'd look at men with kesh and dastara in awe... as weird as it may seem, with cut hair and make up, I saw Singhs as higher than any other guy and I wanted to be with one. And no, I'm not from a religious amritdhari family.

    There is nothing more amazing to me than the Khalsa roop. Nothing more powerful and mesmerizing than a Singh with a long beard, an akali blue dastar and baana... wow. A saint soldier.

    (Of course, my image of Singhs has changed since I found out what the majority of these so called warriors are really like.)

    It was the same a few years ago, and its the same now; my friend (cut hair, fyi) and I talking about how absolutely amazing it is, hardly having any words to describe it... daydreaming like little girls lol.

    And no, its not a "needle in a haystack" type thing - if you're after girls who like to drink and party then what do you expect? Can you seriously complain? If you open your eyes and actually see that there are Gursikh girls who wouldn't settle for a non-Singh, then maybe you'd stop fretting over something so stupid and shallow!

    I'd also like to say, if you're one of these Singhs who goes out looking for attention from girls in order to feel that your beard and turban are attractive, then I wouldn't want to be with you.

    Real Singhs, please come forward.

    Lastly, I'd like to ask why you guys fret over what your dastars look like to outsiders and girls, but you dont consider how difficult it is for Singhnia wearing dastara and growing their kesh. They're more warriors than you are, going against all social norms and causing confusion amongst the public, who don't even know Sikh girls wear turbans. Do you think the average non keshdhari boy is going to want to be with them? But do they care, or are they looking for real Singhs? Stop complaining guys.

    This wasn't meant to cause offense but rather to open your eyes. One last piece of advice - Singhs, be kind and sweet to everyone you meet. Don't be judgmental, obnoxious, loud or cocky.. always strive to be the best person you can be. Obviously this applies to girls too, but I say this because briefly meeting dome nice Singhs recently impacted the way I think about Singhs (in a positive way).

  4. My thoughts are similar to Majhail-Jat!

    By creating the PP Party the Congress will be crippled during an election they would otherwise have one hands down.

    The Akali Dal Badal know that Punjab politics is about sharing terms. One term Akali Dali next term Congress, but by having a third party there would be a need of coalition for the both parties to be elected. So who better than his nephew to damage Congress votes and keep Punjab secured for future elections!

    However once Snr Badal dies then there could be a power struggle between Manpreet and Sukhbir!

    Either way the situation for Punjab is very bad!

  5. The problem especially with the Sikh community that our people are becoming to academic. This leads to people losing their physical competitive nature and ultimately leads to poor results in sports or physical events.

    Being academic is seen as a gold ticket to becoming economically strong so parents tend not to support their children in sports. The same problem most communities face who are driven by economics. The Jews and Hindus are prime examples and sadly this can be said for Sikhs too!

  6. Firstly my bodyweight at the time of performing those lifts was 94kg. My starting bodyweight was around 70 kg. The training period to achieve those lifts was between 3 to 4 years, however I feel I could have achieved those lifts earlier if my training incorporated pyramid training as powerlifters do but I was young and all I wanted to achieve was size and strength was not on top of my lists.

    I wasn't vegetarian at the time but I don't feel that hinders anyone's progress as most bodybuilders/ strength athletes use milk based protiens to feed their muscles.

    My squatting was rubbish considering the hamstring muscles and quads are very large muscles. I did regular squats with bar along the traps and I went low.

    My routines were standard 4 day splits where one muscle group was trained to failure once per week.

    I injured myself during deadlifts because I didn't warm up well during a heavy pull so I had to rethink training.

    As for someone who doesn't train suffering from muscle fatigue! The answer is your muscles are not programmed to set number of repetitions or weight numbers so mentally you don't know when to fail. I no longer believe in counting reps or calculating weights or performing reps to a set time when performing exercises because this holds you back. Your body gets used to this. Train till failure and perform maximum loads when performing isometric exercises.

    I believe this works and if you've heard of Charles Bronson then you'll find he trains in similar ways due him being confined to limited space and not having access to equipment. He holds many world records. Old time Punjabi wrestlers trained in this method too and were untouchable in ther discipline. Training back to basics against immovable objects without mental blocks helped them achieve great feats.

  7. You're a hard Singh to win over! But never mind at least you're committed to your cause.

    Strength Training and Weight training are two different discliplines but I still feel neither can cross over to help you affectively in combat affectively. Marius Puduanski is a prime example. A world strongest man titlist who crossed over to Polish MMA with years of Strength Training and and years of Kick Boxing experience. He struggled in his second fight and was unable to overwhelm his out of shape and unskilled martial artist opponent. He could not man handle or grapple or even lift an mobile weight that did not want to be lifted.

    Stationery weight is lifted in form and humans whether trained or not are a totally different scenario when it goes down to dominating them. Most guys that train for strength or size are programmed to lift in low repetitions which hinders you in real life situations because muscle fatigues and more so there is a mental block once we reach our desired number of repetition in a set. So I disagree that a guy who trains for strength will have an edge against an untrained oponent. For a short window of time only the strength athlete will have an edge but once the muscle that is trained for lifting is out it's comfort zone then the untrained fighter will be able to close the gap.

    Again everything will boil down to mental strength!

    Lifting wise I never trained for single repetitons or tested my max. But I worked in reps of 6 and bench stat was 135kg, squat was weak at 160kg, deadlifting was at 220kg, military press on smith was 110kg. By no means were these great as there were guys who could push out 160kg bench presses with body support suits. These were my best training weights!

  8. If those chairs are disabled peope then it should be excused. But Gurdwaras should provide facilities which have well thought to accommodate the disabled community.

    And lastly why does Mandela speak as the third man?

    It'd almost like listening to 'Smiegel' from 'Lord of the Rings' speaking! Master 'Smiegel' wants the Precious!

    Sorry Blud I'm jus playin!

  9. I agree that the movements that you mentioned such as heavy squats, benchpress, deadlifts are usefull for increasing strength. If they went then these movements would not be utilised by powerlifters.

    I want you to think outside of the box! Let's take science into consideration. For strong powerfull muscles they need to be exposed to intense exercise, food for growth and rest to repair muscles. These three lead to growth and strength. The muscle has no eyes so it cannot differentiate between exercises or equipment or method used to workout. The muscle only responds to the pressures you put on it- so in theory the exercise or equipment used is irrelevant as only pressures and intensity matter. The back to basics approach can and does work but the intensity matters as it does in weight training or powerlifting!

    I also agree that Singhs need to look strong but they also need to be able to apply that strength to the real world. By just doing weight training alone you are limiting yourself to repetition strength and strength that is limited to the gym boundaries. Powerlifters are great at lifting stationery objects but put a moving person infront of them for a 3 min round and they would struggle. The reson being that their muscles are trained for limited repetitions and time so the muscles start to get fatigued quickly.

    I am by no means anti weight training as I too used this type of training for years but I feel that I have found an allternative but unorthodox way of training that works for me personally and requires far less regimented style of routines or equient. But hey whatever works!

  10. I think no one is questioning the parchar, just the man conducting the service. I'm no baba basher in any sense and I feel there are many babeh doing good work but there are also some that are not worthy of conducting katha service. Maan Singh is one of those!

  11. Everyone needs to calm down and look at the bigger picture! The biggest threat to Hindutva and Indias so called Democracy is the unity of Muslims and Sikhs. Kashmiri Muslims and Sikhs both have the same agenda as far seperate homelands are concerned, so any steps towards unity even if temporary will favour both communities. I'm not saying we should all be best friends but we should use this oppurtunity to engage in dialogue with both community leaders to work alongside eachother to take the campaigns further. Whoever gains independence first will pave the way for the other.

  12. That's a good account for the spiritual significance for tying your hair towards the front of our heads! But what's the viewpoint for tying it on the back and I assume covering the head in a bandana style?

    I feel that a patka serves a purpose for certain age groups and people who engage in sports but I'm also confused about why hair being tied back is frowned upon.

    I think one explanation is that some fall into the habit of never tying a dastar!

  13. These jokes are uttered with bad intentions to degrade the Sikh people through hear say and social media in attempt to break down the spirit of the Sikh people. But no one can destroy us or our forefathers legacies. The truth is none of these characters or jokes matter in the real world because in reality the world is told of how the brave souls handed the death of a dog to the darling of Hindustan 'Indra <banned word filter activated> haraamdi Gandhi'!

  14. Being new to this community I recently stumbled across the Health and Fitness topics. I found that most guys especially were seeking answers to how to gain size, get toned or increase strength. I feel that most people associate strength with muscular size and weight lifting stats. This is something I used to do also until I questioned the gains you get from that type of training especially when applied to real life street combat situations. I mean that bench pressing equals strong and big chests but that also leads to a slow delivery of a punch when throwing hooks. Boxers rarely build their chests this reason. Curls enable you to build large bicep muscles but this type of strength does not help you in any life situations. The same goes for many weight training exercises because most are designed to pull or push weights at different angles but do little for real life situations of combat.

    After some thought and research I questioned what exercises and training should be implemented to gain an edge in the heat of a fight in need to defend yourself.

    My theory is that your exercise program should be designed around your action. For example throwing a punch requires powerfull fast movements similar to throwing a ball or chopping with an axe at a tree so why not practice these movements to build the correct muscles involved to that job. Stamping on someone requires powerfull driving of legs so why not practice this by legpressing with one leg against immovable objects to build those muslcles involved. Grappling requires immense grip strength so train those muscles by attempting to squash apples and potatos in each palm. To build overall body strength try to push against an immovable object like a wall or a tree, this involves the use of major muscle groups and smaller ones that get neglected during weight training exercises. You could also try pulling a rope tied against pole to increase your man handling power. This type of training is back to basics and serves a pupose not just something designed to increase muscular size for aesthetics. Because in all honesty bodybuilders look strong and powerfull but the low bodyfat and low water levels for tone and cuts is gained by sapping the body to show definition but a person in that state is at their weakest point. Just ask how a bodybuilder feels after a competing. Their power is only useful for lifting weights at controlled angles and do not serve any purpose in the real world. We need to be powerfull but we need to be strong for a purpose. Stamina needs to be on top our priorities, we should also be able to climb and jump. By practising these movements and feeding our bodies we can build those muscles to do that job efficiently. The best thing about this back to basics training is that you can apply it out of the gym anywhere. Incorporate press ups and bodyeight exercises such as chinups, bodyweght squats to increase natural strength without weakening the body by injuring it. Isometric exercises are also great for this type of training as they require no equipment and the resistance is again made up by natural exercises such as pushing your palms together and applying pressure or locking out your arms against a door frame. My reason for writing on this topic is because I too was into weight training but asked myself questions on how the people in the ages before modern equipment and time for long complicated training routines were able to build powerful bodies that could be efficient in combat.

  15. After further research I have learned that the number '84' used for units of past measurement is flawed and disputed. Units similar to the metric system have been used in Punjab region for centuries. So the 84 lakh literally means 8.4 million species as stated in Sri Guru Granth Sahib. This is an amazing assessmen and this figure is more credible than the 8.7 million as it is from the supreme creator. I apologise for my previous flawed post, but hey I'm only a mortal!
