  1. Counselling can help. We sit down, and hear his issues and figure out how to resolve them.
  2. Admins and Mods: As discussed, this will be my last post on this forum. Please deactivate my account afterwards. I confess that I actually did enjoy my time on here, but paradigm shifts are manifesting in the Sikh world- the traditionalist Sikhs are slowly, albeit surely, being questioned and their status as some de-facto priestly class is being effaced day-by-day. The Sikh youth, long fed on the dribble of some autonomous religio-political Khalistan, are beginning to awaken and unite to control their own future. Tragically, violence and Ad hominem seem to be the only retorts which the traditi
  3. I have always perceived it in the same vein as Bhai Gurdas Ji's vaars. It augments the message of Guru Granth Sahib Ji allegorically whilst underscoring the importance of sovereignty for the Khalsa.
  4. The modern day Dasam Granth is heavily expunged. Several banis have been excised though some individuals still print them in the Granth. https://tisarpanth.tumblr.com
  5. Conflating Punjabism with Sikhi is only shooting ourselves in the foot. The Panj Piares were from contemporary diaspora, Banda Singh was from Kashmir and the list goes on. The underlying factor for Sikh sovereignty must be religion rather than geographic nationalism.
  6. You just love jumping the gun don't you? https://tisarpanthdotcom.wordpress.com/2018/07/21/beyond-the-crescendo/
  7. BEYOND THE CRESCENDO Punjabi Media and the Sensationalizing of Current Issues. (At Tisarpanth we encourage our readers to contribute their own articles to our site. Below is an article written by Satpal Kaur, of Germany, who is currently studying the role of the modern media in augmenting political narratives vis-a-vis state policy. Having observed the Punjabi media, particularly the musical facet, since the past ten years she shares some of her observations on the lack of responsibility among Punjabi singers). In early 2013 Punjabi pop-star J
  8. Ladi Shah's dargah holds langars where drugs are openly distributed, for free, in the name of seva. Other than Dhadrianwale or the missionaries, no one else has called them out.
  9. Imagine those uncles in the corners sitting with her dad, "ta phir me suniyaa onne odi b*and maar to.." looks at dad, "thuadi kuri nai si es maar mariyee che..."
  10. The appropriation of religious sentiment for cultural profiteering (pub, club today and dharmic geet tomorrow); intentional conflation of inimical cultural traits (misogyny, androcentrism, substance abuse and blind belligerence) with religious sentiments is beginning to tell on the kitsch Punjabi media. Punjabi singers are actually beginning to be questioned. https://tisarpanthdotcom.wordpress.com/2017/02/12/a-two-faced-muse/
  11. This refutes the Jat myth: https://tisarpanthdotcom.wordpress.com/2016/04/24/misconceptions-ii/
  12. We had fuddu Tara Singh, and when that kanjar went we had the bhen da yaar Sant Fateh Singh.
  13. Other than Gupta's unsubstantiated assertion, no other historian has ever categorised him as a Guru "with a large following in Madhya Pradesh." Maybe he was deified by his own small band as one, but there is nothing to imply that he had some "large following."
  14. Our field of intellectualism is limited to the dogmatic injunctions of sampradas, or the tedious fallacies of alleged intellectuals with their theories of what pre-colonialism was. There seems to be no principled effort at alleviating our community's moral/sociopolitical regression. Ad hoc bodies are established from time to time but these are only temporary. Maybe its high time that the fifth takhat, the Dal Khalsa be resurrected.
  15. The cow belt has a sizeable population of Dalits.
  16. The Indian education system has brainwashed them into imbibing the myth that the very purpose of Sikhi is to guard India- ironically India, in itself, is an Occident creation and Sikhs dying for it are only dying for an illusion.
  17. Nanakianism, provocatively, abnegates the political state’s infringement of personalized liberty on the fallacious ploy that the state is supreme in toto. (1) If perceived from the latter purview, it is no wonder then that the history of the Sikhs consists of unflinching resolve even in the face of abject political tyranny. The bowdlerized variation of Sikhi, promulgated by political institutes and atrophied sampradas ,depicts the Sikh as a bovine. Herded in the morning by pseudo-Saints; butchered in the afternoon by opponents of an uncaring state- a caricature fast becoming reality. Historica
  18. Ludicrously, Santa Sio Nang stepped over the bodies of the innocent Sikhs slain in Operation Bluestar to build the "sarkari takhat-" he is a hero; Banda Singh created the first Sikh Raaj, he's a villain.
