    I think nothing tops those star plus dramas when it comes to destroying brain cells!  My mothers watching one currently and some guy who died a year ago just came back alive again to claim his baby that was born 12 months after he died! Some how that makes sense to millions of aunties around the globe.

    English and US soaps are even worse for dirty storylines though in general

    No I had what some would consider from the outside as a love marriage but it was a friendship that turned through mutual values and respect into a partnership in marriage , with blessings of Guru ji

    I think that's how a lot of people get married

    I've seen too many issues in arranged marriages, but these days it would not be the like virtually forced marriages of previous generations

    a partnership based on common ideas (belief in Akal Purakh, Honesty etc) , tolerance of the other foibles and all i.e. acceptance as I mentioned , yes discipline of making it work for you , your partner and your kids security, health and sanity. Worldly love is often used as a excuse for the worst sins I don't see it as an ideal  in any form .

    Did you have an arranged marriage ?

    I know of a lot of unmarried people in arranged marriages

    I was in a similar situation a few years back. We know this Punjabi family for decades and one of their daughters decided to get married to a Gujrati guy, they did the anand karaj in the early hours somewhere in Hayes, not sure where. I was caught between telling someone or not and i didn't at the end! because i walk past these same people and when i see them i greet them and then there i was going behind their back and reporting them. It didn't feel right, and my parents wouldn't of been happy at all if i did that. 

    It's a difficult one, who knows if it would result in negative karma for ourselves if we do something like that . 

    It should really be the Gurdwara that should decline it

    Keep the device at least 6ft away from people, preferably in a box or shielded by clothes, else some folks develop dental issues owing to the frequency used by the Bluetooth signal that causes gum inflammation issues, hence "Blue Tooth." I don't know why they don't call it BlueGum. Probably sounds strange, tbh. 

    No, I’m not surprised by any ‘damage’ that technology can do

    Even within regions there is a difference. Doaba is where you will find the most clean shaven boys followed by Majha. Within Punjab Sikhi is strongest in Malwa. Maybe it is due to the high degree of influence of Sants in Malwa

    Are you sure? Manga is the stronghold of Sikhi in Punjab. Most Khalistanus from there.

    Malwa has land and population equal to Diana and Majha combined or more, so it is difficult to label whole of Malwa as honegenous

     Any person with a little bit of common sense will look at individual cases and be able to tell, wearing a mask is very effective. This is the reason why people with common sense wear a mask.  

    I don't think it is much to do with 'common sense' 

    I think we should keep an open mind about anything we do not immediately believe

    My cousin in Canada is in a live in relationship, his girlfriend lives with the family and his ex girlfriend also used to live with them.

    A lot of families are very supportive of this behaviour. 

    I think people need to realise that the traditional punjabi family is in decline, traditional families are fast becoming extinct, and a lot of families actually support their daughters/sons behaving like this.

    Thinking that pubjabi families are still traditional and that their kids are rebellious is quite an outdated view! Many many "traditional" families have no problem with this behaviour! 

    A lot of mothers go clubbing with their daughters and get p1ssed on weekends! 

    Nothing ‘outdated’ about it. Society is changing gradually and generally not for the better

    Alice Ruggles murder: Trimaan Dhillon to serve minimum of 22 years

    A soldier has been jailed for life for breaking into his ex-girlfriend's flat and cutting her throat from ear to ear.

    Alice Ruggles, 24, was found fatally injured at her home in Rawling Road, Gateshead, in October.

    Lance Corporal Trimaan "Harry" Dhillon, 26, denied murder at Newcastle Crown Court, saying she had fallen on a carving knife during an argument.

    Sentencing him to a minimum of 22 years, judge Paul Sloan QC said the murder was an act of "utter barbarism".

    The court heard the Edinburgh-based signaller with 2 Scots became obsessed with graduate Miss Ruggles - originally from Leicestershire - and stalked her when he realised she was moving on after their intense relationship ended.

    Dhillon claimed she died as a result of an accident when she leapt at him with a carving knife.

    He told the jury they had been struggling, that he had tried to disarm her and she cut herself when he blocked a lunge, and the knife stuck in her neck when she fell to the floor.


    The court was told Miss Ruggles, who had complained to police about Dhillon's behaviour, was found on her bathroom floor on 12 October and had bled to death.

    Dhillon had climbed into Miss Ruggles' flat through an open window and set about murdering her, probably kneeling on her back and holding her head up to slash her throat at least six times, cutting through to the spine.

    She suffered 24 injuries, including defensive wounds, while 6ft 1in Dhillon suffered none.

    The jury was played a frantic 999 call by Miss Ruggle's friend Maxine McGill in which she described finding the 24-year-old "covered in blood" and named Dhillon as the killer, calling him an "absolute psychopath".

    In evidence, Ms McGill claimed her friend had complained to police about Dhillon's obsessive behaviour but that she felt she had been "palmed off".

    Northumbria Police said at the time no-one knew the level of threat Dhillon posed, but added it had referred their actions to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

    Miss Ruggles and Dhillon developed an intense relationship over the internet while he was serving in Afghanistan and she was working for Sky in Newcastle.

    The jury were told Dhillon soon set about alienating her from her friends, knocked her self-confidence and demanded her constant attention.

    His previous partner suffered similarly and her ordeal only ended after she took out a restraining order.

    The court heard when the relationship ended Dhillon stalked her ground-floor flat at night, knocking on her bedroom window and "terrifying" her.

    He was told to stay away from her by police, but the Indian-born soldier ignored the warning.

    Sentencing, Dhillon Judge Sloan told him: "Not a shred of remorse have you shown from first to last - indeed you were concentrating so hard on getting your story right when giving evidence you forgot even to shed a crocodile tear."

    After the verdict Miss Ruggles' family released a statement through the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, which helps people avoid becoming victims of violence, in which they said her loss would stay with them for the rest of their lives.

    Her mother Sue Hills said: "I just wish we had identified those signs of stalking which, with hindsight, are so obvious.

    "I would like what happened to Alice to encourage others to seek support if they are worried about someone's behaviour."

    Speaking outside court, Dr Hills said there were "important lessons to be learned".

    "We welcomed Trimaan Dhillon into our family and he came across as a normal person," she said.

    "Unfortunately he was a cruel, manipulative bully who made Alice miserable and took her away from us."


    Parents of Alice Ruggles worry killer could be released early if sent to India

    The parents of murdered student Alice Ruggles say they are worried her killer could be released early if he is sent to India to finish his sentence.

    Speaking to the BBC, Alice's father Clive Ruggles said he feared Trimaan Dhillon's minimum sentence could be interpreted as his full sentence if he was sent to his native country.

    Dhillon was sentenced to a minimum of 22 years in prison in 2017 for killing Alice in October 2016.

    Why have the police taped off part of your neighbourhood?


    "If he goes back to his home country, then that would mean that we wouldn't know where he is, we wouldn't be given information every year like we are now, we would just be constantly worried that he'd been released without our knowledge."


    Alice, originally from Market Harborough, had reported her ex-boyfriend to the police multiple times before her death.

    Dhillon cut 24-year-old Alice's throat at her flat in Gateshead, in the north east, where she was a student, in October 2016.

    During his trial, the judge described the murder as an act of "utter barbarism".


    Mr Ruggles also told the BBC that if Dhillon stayed in the UK, the Ruggles family's thoughts and views, and the judge's remarks would be considered before he was considered for release.

    A Ministry of Justice spokesman said the prisons minister had spoken to the Ruggles family to discuss the case and their concerns.

    The spokesman added: "While we are determined to punish and deport foreign national offenders, this would only happen where an appropriate sentence is guaranteed to be served overseas."

    No point. They assume that when us "foreigners" warn them of these problems, we're doing so not out of a desire for their welfare, but because we don't want them to leave India and settle overseas. I say let them come and suffer as horrible as that may sound. It's the ONLY way they learn.

    Most do not return. So probably most are happy abroad

    I'll have to ask my cousins what's going down over there, lol. They've never mentioned anything like this. They make it seem like an idyllic getaway.

    There was similar news a few years ago. This news need to be spread back in Punjab to discourage this type of emigration of negative
