  1. We don't sell any Gatras for 3ft Kirpans just yet however, you'll start seeing some on our website fairly soon!
  2. Yes we do. Take a look at: www.sikhistore.com/product/patka-with-tassels/
  3. Yes, shipping from UK to USA is expensive. However, even with that taken into account, for someone in the USA, it is still cheaper to buy from us based in the UK rather than buying form US based websites.
  4. VJKK VJKF... We did some price comparisons today for Dastars and we thought we would share what we found to save you the time when your looking in the future! Hope it helps.
  5. SikhiStore

    Gatra

    You could open up an existing one to see how it is sewn together. Or you could just get a premade one... See our range at: www.sikhistore.com/category/gatrey/
  6. The Widow Colony is an award winning 74 minute film (available to buy from http://www.SikhiStore.com) that takes an in-depth look into the lives of the widows of the Sikh men who were killed in the anti-Sikh massacre of November, 1984. The film, directed by Harpreet Kaur, explores the suffering of these women, their battle for justice and their struggle for survival in India. "The Widow Colony – India’s Unsettled Settlement" by Sach productions borrows its name from the settlement in Tilak Vihar, on the west-side of New Delhi, which is locally called the Widow Colony or Vidhva Colony. The film takes the viewer to the areas of Trilokpuri, Kalyanpuri, Sultanpuri and Mongolpuri, the same localities that suffered the major brunt of the Sikh killings in November of 1984. Along with the testimonies of the widows, supplemented with imagery of the killings and destruction that followed after the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, the film conveys the intensity of the tragedy that occurred 30 years ago.

  7. We sell these Kachera which are known as Barekaan Wala Kacherey or Rave Kachera. You can order online and we deliver worldwide: http://www.sikhistore.com/category/kakaar/kacherey/
  8. We've been selling dastars worldwide via our online store (www.SikhiStore.com) for over 2 and a half years now. Take a look and see. As Amritdhari Gursikhs ourselves, we struggled getting our items and online Sikhi Shops at the time as you say seemed a bit hit and miss. This is the reason we started SikhiStore. We are a professional UK based Sikhi Store offering low cost quick delivery (all orders placed before 5pm are posted out next working day) and we only stock good quality items we would use ourselves. As it was set up as a self sustaining service for the Sangat and not about making lots of money, all our prices are also very affordable. Take a look: www.SikhiStore.com
  9. Maybe wait until they get a Hukamnama from the Gurdwara for the babies name and get that printed and framed for them? And maybe something like: www.sikhistore.com/product/ik-chota-bacha-sikh-nursery-rhymes/. Our little one loved that, we sing him them nursery ryhmes a lot.
  10. We sell these on SikhiStore. See: www.sikhistore.com/product/digital-finger-tally-counter-simrana/
  11. Not sure if it helps you but we stock Taksali Kirpans/ Sri Sahibs on our online Sikh Store. Can order online and have it delivered to you. Take a look at: www.sikhistore.com/category/kakaar/kirpans/
  12. They are normally made of dastar material of which there are 3 main types. Mal Mal, Full Voile or Rubia. We sell all 3 types online at: www.sikhistore.com/category/dastars/
  13. Not sure if this helps but we have some available on our website at: www.sikhistore.com/category/rumala-sahibs/ We'll be adding more soon.
  14. We stock the same material you will find in the high quality range of dastars at Sardar Pagri House in Amritsar.
  15. Next time, try to get a 'colour fast' dastar. These are dyed in a way which means they are resistant to fading. All the dastars we stock at: http://www.sikhistore.com/category/dastars/ are 'colour fast'.
  16. Have you tried us? We at SikhiStore stock Rubia, Full Voile and Mal Mal dastars and we try to only supply high quality colour fast dastars. Can see our dastar range at: http://www.sikhistore.com/category/dastars/
  17. For any books that are in English, I'd highly recommend that you use some OCR software that can 'read' the text and then save as an ePub file. This ebook then has searchable text, bookmarking, remembers which page you were on, allows highlighting, chapters etc etc. It is the standard format amongst things like the Kindle and mobile devices.
  18. Fully agree with this. I think actually taking responsibility for a certain Seva and putting some time and dedication towards it will definitely show results and it amazing what you can achieve and what we can all achieve together. We know this from our experience. We thought there was a need for an online Sikhi Store a few years ago. Maharaj had blessed us with the skills and expertise available to make it happen. We contemplated it for a long time, but one day we thought you know what, we need less of the talking and thinking and more action. Maharaj kirpa naal, SikhiStore started. Takes around 1-2 hours each day but almost 2 years later, we still thank Vaheguru for being able to serve the Sangat each and every day in this way.
  19. Baal Updesh in is Punjabi. The above youtube videos of Giani Takhur Singh Jee is of them going through/ following this Baal updesh book. You can also see a slightly older version of Baal Updesh as a PDF at: http://www.damdamitaksal.org/pdfs/baal-updesh.pdf
  20. We sell a range of colour fast Mal Mal (F74), Full Voile and Rubia Dastars online and we deliver worldwide. Take a look at: http://www.sikhistore.com/category/dastars/
  21. Sadda Haq is most awaited Punjabi Movie of 2013 and now it’s finally available to buy on DVD from SikhiStore! It is story of a hockey player Kartar Singh Bazz who joins militancy. Why did Kartar Singh join militancy and why did thousands of Sikh youngsters like him also decide to take up arms..? This is their story. Support the producers by purchasing it legitimately at: http://www.sikhistore.com/product/sadda-haq-movie-dvd/
  22. Congratulations veerji! The material you use is just personal preference. The 3 main types are Mal mal (F74), Full Voile and Rubia. Mal mal is the lightest material, full voile is slightly heavier and Rubia is the heaviest. We stock all 3 if you wanted to try them out: http://www.sikhistore.com/category/dastars/ I personally tie a small dastar under my main dastar, both full voile. Normally I keep the main dastar tied all day. Sometimes though if just at home I will tie just the small dastar. Some children and elders for sports tie a patka: http://www.sikhistore.com/product/patka-with-tassels/
  23. We are based in the UK and sell Kacheras at: www.sikhistore.com/category/kakaar/kacherey/ Once you have one you could take it apart to see how to sew one yourself and to see how much material is needed.
  24. SunSingh explained it really well. Another option is the newer 'digital simranas'. These work better if you can't do full malas in one go. See our website for more info: http://www.sikhistore.com/product/digital-finger-tally-counter-simrana/
