    sikh soldiers born and brought up in the plains of punjab do pretty ok when they r sent to leh ladakh side which has very harsh winter. some of them get frostbite in winters there.

    I think your right!  I know our Singhs have strong resilience and the mindset is to succeed in all situations.  Chardi kala wherever or whatever the situation ahead of them.

    A nihang chaunni in Siberia will be amazing. winters r harsh but there is great potential for shikaar.

    I don’t think the Nihungs would be able to cut it in that environment.  Probably need about a couple of hundred years to evolve to endure such a harsh cold and bitter climate.

    iv never been to a horse mandi b4!  iv only been to a maj/cow mandi! lol       i only go punjab in December  

    They have these all over Punjab.  The one in Amritsar used to be held once a year and you can purchase horses as well as rent out your Stallion for breeding purposes.  Some people just turn up to show off their horses, after a long year of hard graft looking after these animals.  Good place to see and talk to experienced individuals about breeds.

    You know when you see people standing on the horses back, with like one foot on one horse and the other foot on the other horse   is that damaging for the horses back?  or is it ok? 

    With the power and strength the horses possess, I doubt the horse would even notice.  The saddle is only for the comfort of the rider really.  Also the weight is distributed between two horses so that lessens the load and also experienced riders know exactly where to place the foot without causing discomfort to the horses.

    really interesting   just googled it    really powerful majestic looking horses      i remember the police used to ride these horses not sure if they still do     back in the 90s we used to have the police on these horses at the nagar kirtans as well 

    Yeh these horses now used for shows and parades to make a presence.  You see these types of breeds in the Queens parade with the military drummer on them.  They aren’t really that good for riding because they have a really broad back, you’ll end up walking like John Wayne if your not careful.  Great for pulling carts and heavy loads like the old time beer drayman and coal wagons.

    Blue Arabian horse

    Beautiful example!  These are really majestic horses.  The interesting thing about Arabians is that there skin under their hair is black.  So when you see a white Arabian the muzzle, eyelids and brows are always black.  You’ll never see a completely white Arabian.

    In the UK I remember there used to be those horses with long hair on their hooves   dnt see them anymore  

    Shire Horses!  They are huge horses that were used to pull ploughs working the farmS.  Really strong breed but gentle in nature.  Problem with keeping a horse in the UK is the running cost.  Buying them is relatively cheap but the food costs and stable costs would bankrupt most people.

    I was listening to katha of giani sher singh ji and he was saying that at anandpur sahib,there was one normal big tabella of horses and then there was one small special tabella for extraordinary special horses.

    It would have been amazing to view the collection of horses.  The most amazing thing is that most of the most rarest and valuable possessions of Guru Sahib, such as the white elephant, blue horse and white falcon were gifted by people who’s hearts were filled with the most love for their Guru.

    Any1 know which breed of horse guru gobind singh jis horse was?  You can actually get horses that are of a blue shade but they dont belong to any particular breed. 

    The blue Horses are sometimes referred to as dappled grey or blue.  Nobody really knows what the exact breed was that Guru Gobind Singh Ji possessed, but it would have been the best and most sort after breed of it’s time whether that be Persian, Arabian or Turki.  I actually remember visiting a horse mandi near Amritsar many years ago and remember seeing a dappled blue Marwari stallion.  The horse was stunning and was hot blooded which is also a trait of the breed.  Unfortunately I’ve never seen one like it again.

    plz tell which breeds were used by puratan Singhs?

    Most likely central Asian and Middle Eastern  breeds such as the Turki, Persian and Arabian.  They had the best breeding stock of the time and would have made there way into Hind by Mughal rulers of the time.  Marwari horses would have naturally been used locally by the Rajputs so I’m sure Sikhs would have used these also but the most sort after would have been the horses used by the Mughals and Persian invaders.  The breeding programme was introduced by Maharajah Ranjit Singh during his reign, and again he favoured the most sort after breeds of the time, most likely Arabian just like his most prized horse.  

    Looking back through historical art, the horses used by the Sikhs did not always have inward facing ears in the illustrations, so we can get an idea they were not Marwari.  As soon as you try to cross the breed with other horses, the offspring loses it’s unique feature of the ears.  This is why the Marwari is so unique and beautiful.

    Also the Gurus were gifted the best Horses and Shastars of time, so we can assume the Horses were made up of the best from Central Asia and Middle East.

    not all are marwari.

    the one with baba bidhi Chand dal doesn't look marwari.

    it has Indian map on his neck.

    There’s only one other breed which has the inward pointing ears, the Kathiawari horse.  Similar to the Marwari but with a more longer and broader neck.  Same gene pool but slightly different in the way they look.  They are both beautiful looking breeds but I don’t think these breeds were the war horses that were used by the Puratan Singhs.

    That's the narrative that the Muslims want us to believe so that we can be their useful idio.ts in fighting against the CAA which incidentally helps Sikhs from Pakistan to get political asylum in India. The stupidity of those Sikhs who think that just because they have a common enemy in the RSS means that we should be making common cause with the Muslims is the same mentality that enslaved us in 1947. When will Sikhs wake up and understand that there is no such thing as friendship with Muslims without a heavy price that will one day paid by the Sikhs in the future. 

    All this characterisation of Muslims as being victims which is being propagated by the Sikh media will disarm the Sikh population and leave them unable to understand just what a danger Islam is. While the rest of India is getting rid of their Muslims, our actions are ensuring that any Muslims who want safety will want to come to Punjab and our naïve Sikhs will be ripe for a love jihad onslaught and the useful idio.ts in our community will be financing the building of Mosques and ensure that Islam once again becomes the danger that it was pre-1947 in East Punjab. 

    If we have to come common cause we should be making common cause with the Dalits and Advasis who are the real victims of Hindutva. Making common cause with Muslims and Christians in India is to empower those who have evil intentions towards us. 

    We stand with truth. We speak up for the down trodden.  We stand up to the oppressor.  That’s what our Guru has taught us!

    i think its coz bjp lost in delhi, and aap party won  so modi sent his men over to terrorize.

    This has been brewing since Kashmir and the new discriminatory act which puts Muslims at disadvantage.  Modhi wants to put Muslims in their place and at the same time empower the Hindu mobs to carry out cowardly acts, we see this every 2 decades or so against minorities.  Gunda Raj is here and we will see a lot more of this, whilst the world turns a blind eye to forge new trade relations.

  14. By entering the gym you are not discarding your articles of faith or turning your back on your beliefs.  When you take a flight on a plane you have to remove your Kirpan, but this is not considered as turning your back on your Guru.  All you are doing is removing your Kakkars for a short period of time, to allow you to participate without injuring those around you. You could have your Kakkars close by to you, so that you are reminded of your obligations to your faith during a bout or training.

    If you become successful you would inspire a whole generation of young Sikhs to take up the sport and do a wonderful job of promoting your Religion.  This would be a great Seva.

    Come on man!

    According to your own admission: "I watch nearly all Punjabi movie releases."

    That's a whole lot of musicals. The vast majority (if not all!) of it being brain dead dross too. I don't think any straight guy would do that myself.

    I'm not judging it but you should maybe do away with the self-deception and come out of the lamaari bro.....

     No I’m alright bro! These are not ‘Singhaan de kam’.  Big time besti, matheh te kalank, moo kala karauna, nak vadhouna, shitraan walian kartoottan, kanjarpuna to the next level.  See all the benefits of watching Punjabi Cinema.

    Bit of a tangent but Samurai armor is not designed to keep you from dying. It's designed to keep you from dying to arrows so you can live to die properly to melee weapons. 

    Samurai armour was really quite deceptive when it came down to appearance, it looks really fragile and not fit for purpose, but was extremely tough.  The Samurai developed a special lacquer which was used to toughen natural materials.  This enabled the armour to retain toughness and lightweight properties which enabled the Samurai to move with speed and agility.  They wore face masks that were intended to frighten the enemy whilst masking ones own expressions during battle.

    You're what we'd humorously call 'GT Road Utey' when younger. 

     

    GT standing for G** Tendencies.

    I don’t know what your talking about!.. I’m a ‘eighties kid’.  Homos and alphabetties didn’t exist in the eighties.  You know that, you’re old enough to remember!

    Ardaas 1 and  rabb da radio 1  are really gd movies  both on youtube     about social issues     qissa, tale of a lonely ghost is one of the strangest movies iv ever seen! surprised that some punjabi made it, its about a man who wants a son but his wife gives birth to a girl but he doesnt wanna accept it so he raises it as a boy! he even marrys her of to a girl!  strange movie    

    i dont really watch hindi movies but i liked padmavaati and haider. 

    I watch nearly all Punjabi movie releases.  Recently I watched ‘Chall Mera Putt’.  It’s a good comedy about the struggles of ‘Fauji’s’ in England.  It also has a message of better community cohesion with PakistanI Punjabi’s, who are also acting alongside our people.  Seems like since the opening of ‘Kartarpur Langa’, a major effort is being made on both sides of Punjab to embrace each other’s similarities.

    Punjabi film industry seems to be growing, but there seems to be too many releases flooding the market, with the same copy and paste storylines and repetitive use of the same actors.  Also I don’t know why but all the main lead actors are music artists and rarely does any new grassroot talent get a chance to showcase their talent.  You do get the odd gem like Ardaas and the Black Prince which breaks through but you have too sift through the pile of crap to find them. Gippy Grewal is showing he has a really good skill set as a Director, but he needs to take his time in selecting the right script rather than cashing out for quick releases.
