  1. A nation that looks to cure terminal conditions with openly drinking ‘Cow Urine’ and worships ‘Shivs Johnson’ has no place as labelling Sikhs ‘dumb’. For those of you who are not from the UK should know that Gao Mootar use for a cure against Cronavirus made it on the BBC world news. They’ve got worry about there own image before trying define a Sikhs!
  2. I understand your concern, but remember Aamir Khan is very picky about his movie script and generally makes movies that have a good message. I might be wrong on this but my gut feeling is the movie will portray Sikhs in a good light. Besides who cares we have our own Punjabi movie industry now, so we can portray the truth about our own people, we can also expose the truth about Brahmins.
  3. You have just done it again! Using the term ‘thick’ to label hidden disabilities is not right for a Sikh to be using in this context. A Sikhs character should be to protect the vulnerable and stand up to the bullies, not be worried about being on the receiving end. I don’t think you have done this intentionally but I do suggest you watch ‘Forest Gump’ again and try and search for the inspirational message within. My take on it was that no matter how much Forest Gump was limited by his disability and the cards that life had dealt him, he had the hand of ‘Akaal Purkh’ protecting and providin
  4. What does this quote say about you as an individual? Having an disability is being dim witted and of low iq? So you feel having someone of Sikh heritage portrayed like Forest Gump is something for Sikh community to be ashamed of. Seriously go and educate yourself!
  5. The ‘Green Revolution’ is far from being a ‘failed’ experiment. It has done exact what it was designed to. The water table has depleted to the point where harmful elements are carried into available drinking water causing cancer. The real culprit is not the farming but the diversion of the mineral rich water from the Himalayas, that once used to fill the canals carrying water into the fields. The Tractors came along and the once hilly terrain was levelled flat to the point that natural irrigation was no longer affective, as water could no longer roll down the hills to water the fields like
  6. Good! We don’t need Kutte to go on and reproduce more Kuteer!
  7. Seems as though a lot of these limitations you have placed upon yourself. I can honestly say that I have never felt being restricted or or weighed down by being Sabat Surat. I don’t think there is a single profession in the world where a Sabat Surat Singh has not excelled at. I think a lot comes down to Singh mindset, whether you actually have the courage to take on the world or you just want to be a part of it.
  8. Absolutely correct! Kachi Lassi is the name for the solution and yes it is used because it is non-corrosive to the marble surface. We also use Swaa (ash) and Reht (sand) to clean Untensils in Gurughars but again it’s used because it has no chemicals and is non-corrosive. Nothing to do with Sadhus applying ash to their bodies before anyone tries to make that connection. Lol
  9. The context is completely different. We as Sikhs feed people ‘and’ wash the marble with milk not one ‘or’ the other. Hindus on the other hand do nothing to eradicate poverty or hunger and feed idols to perform miracles on their behalf. Ranjit Bawa should be given a ‘Saropa’ for calling out the Hindus. This isn’t the first time he has stuck his neck out for Sikhs, he performed a song while ago with Lehmber Hussanpuri for the movie about Sukha and Jinda. Most Artist’s run a mile from anything like this but Ranjit Bawa has once again shown his worth!
  10. I remember hearing Sant Singh Maskeen Ji talking about his discourse of Japji Sahib going back 30 years ago, how he said that he didn’t agree with what he had interpreted looking back since his most present Gyan. He said he wouldn’t say it was wrong but correct according to his understanding when younger, but as he accumulated more Gyan, he said his new discourse would be different.
  11. Balle Oh Shera! Swaad aah gaiaa! Now that’s what we need more of!
  12. This makes sense! I’d imagine quite a few words used in Gurmukhi are pronounced and written differently to now such as ‘Sat’ which is ‘truth’. ‘Sat’ is no longer used in modern day spoken or written communication.
  13. That’s interesting to know. I’ve always only ever seen it as ‘Thinking’. I’m surprised that there are two versions of the translation out there. But then again what else would you expect from the SGPC with such important matters.
  14. Sochia Soch Na Hovai Je Sochia lakh VaarII By thinking, ‘He’ cannot be reduced to thought, even by thinking hundreds of thousands of times. Soch- Think/Thought Sucha/Sucham - Clean/Cleanse Slight difference in the way word is written and pronounced but meaning can be misinterpreted.
  15. Cheap air travel! That’s the other elephant. Everyone is out there clocking up air miles and filling up their Passport. It’s considered trendy to travel everywhere and anywhere nowadays. This depletes the disposable income which ultimately leads to maxing out the credit card, so marriage gets pushed further back.
  16. We don’t need to breed ourselves into significance! All we need is ‘one’ Parcharak/Leader that can connect with the masses and before you know it, the numbers will multiply faster than anything you have seen. Sounds familiar to the great leader that emerged in the 1980’s and changed the landscape of Punjab and the Diaspora. Have faith and pass on Sikhi to your children and spread it to those who know nothing about us and watch everything that happens before your eyes. Stay Chardikala!
  17. Really good photos! It’s quite refreshing to see Dastaaran wale as the majority back then, but equally sad to see the complete opposite to present times.
  18. ‘Portraits are only sold of those whom have not sold themselves’
  19. What the same uniform those haraamis use to harass common folk whether they are young, elderly or female. That same uniform that they use for the extrajudicial killings throughout Punjab. They can ‘F’ Off out my homeland and take their hand 🖐 with them. You can do one too!
  20. Yeh I agree! Those Criminal Police Officers completely used disproportionate force with their Lathis, especially now that you just pointed out that the Singhs were just out looking for Vegetables to feed their families.
  21. I’m sure the Khaki Kutteh were armed and were outnumbering the Singhs. Some people actually know how to use their Shastar and not just play dress up on weekends.
  22. Those wooden things are called ‘Persian Clubs’ which are used to strengthen hand grip and shoulders. Dangal Wrestlers (Pehlwans) still use them as part of their daily training. Bodyweight momentum squats and ‘Hindu pushups‘ as they are known are the core exercises used to develop strength. Also pushing and pulling trees is also an old exercise which was used to develop strength. The key to getting strong was always to do massive quantities of repetitions with these exercises, have daily massages and consume lots of nuts, milk and gheeoh!
  23. Good point! Belonging to a Punjabi background and being born into Sikhi, I forget that all races and ethnicities could potentially become Khalsa. Tadpole in a small pond mentality sometimes kicks in.
  24. Yeh definitely do that. Also go and see the horses that never make it to shows or the mandi, which are kept by the Nihungs. Baba Bakala Nihungs or Harianwala Nihungs have some of the best horses. Those Nihungs have a wealth of knowledge too.
  25. Maharaja Ranjit Singhs Horse Laili! Looks like a Arabian in the illustration. Still to this day the most expensive horse in history. 12000 troops sent to war with the Afghans and RS 6,000,000 the cost to capture this horse.
