    LONDON VISIT

    The rest of us non Jews in the west are not allowed to forget, there are whole museums, TV programs, movies , news items to remind us. Back in 90s, over 1 million Tutsis were massacred but they have no where near any of the coverage that we receive about the Jewish holocaust. The Jews in the west are thought in the same manner as the baniya/brahmin is thought of by the general indian public. The difference between the Jews and Christian/Muslim is that latter two want everyone to follow their creed. The Jews do not do that. However there are elements of their tribe who like to indulge in mischief making.

    The Jews do seem to lord over everyone in regards to the holocaust. But how long can this keep going on for. WW2 finished 75 years ago. Any Jew that survived the holocaust would at least be in their 80's. Once the generation of that era passes on and there would be no one who would have living memory of what happened, I wonder if things will change drastically. Eventually, people will start (if not already) get tired and fed up with hearing about it along with being called a Nazi and anti-semitic.

    They flock to the holy men because they are like rock stars and they are the fans/groupies. It also gives them an opportunity to virtue signal.

    I think that jaggo had to do with the bride's last day of freedom before getting married. They will make a racket and wake up all the neighbours in the village.

    Baby Showers - this is more of an Americanism. Sometimes with traditions, there was probably a logical explanation (like you mentioned above with the brothers) but these traditions stick even when they no longer serve their purpose. People forget why they were done in the first place.

    The problem is that a lot of western wedding norms are getting mixed up with our traditions. These "kids" think because that Church weddings have everyone standing when the bride comes in that we do the same, or when there is applause we should do the same. It is just ignorance. Sometimes it is pure common sense but these kids need it spelt out what is correct and what is not. If there is one western practice we could adopt is a semblance of the rehearsal like a rehearsal lawan. Then you could go through stuff with the couple and tell them what to expect and the correct protocol is. The video here shown is either from US or Canada. Canada in particular is far more extreme than the UK in that either Sikhs are very religious or extremely westernised or what they call "whitewashed ".

    I am talking about the additional shabads after the marriage ceremony has taken place and then some speaker they have afterwards. This is when people get fidgety. In India I have heard that Lawan are supposed to be done before sunrise.

    Being to a few Anand Karaj's in India, it seems that the Kirtan at the Lawan is more of a western phenomenon. On average the Lawan time can last about 2 hours, in India it seems to be done and dusted in 20 minutes. Just my observations

    I went to one particular Anand Karaj and straight after the lawan, the female half of the Sangat in the darbar hall clapped for applause and were whooping and hollering. The gyani gave them a ticking off and had to tell them this is not the correct protocol. I sometimes think that the Anand Karaj's in India are much better. You only invite close family and you just do the lawan, keep it short and sweet. No ragis, no speakers.

    Dealing with an angry wife

    It seems to be that in Punjabi society there is no room to be virtuous. They seem to side with evil because it is seen as strength. Strength over there is conflated with fear. There is a Machiavellian saying " if there is choice between being loved or feared it is better to be feared" Like all things Sikh, the correct course of action is to take a middle path. That is not to take dowry and be fair but if they step out of line, make sure they understand the consequences of their actions.

    I don't understand why these types don't just have a registry wedding. If they want petals and garlands and dress up them they can.

    It's a Goddess movement.

    Dealing with an angry wife

    I seen this problems so many times. A family marry their sons to a girl from a poor family as they feel sorry for them. They try their best to acommodate the girl into their family (even not ask for dowry) and hand everything to her on a plate and the girl turns out to be a right cow. No appreciation whatsoever. It is these kind of situations that make me see the reason why mother-in-laws can be harsh with their daughter-in-laws. I deplore the dowry system but I wonder if these kind of families sense weakness when a dowry is not demanded from them. There is an expression, " Those that bite the hand that feeds them, lick the boots that kick them". This girl I think subconsciously feels resentful because she has had everything handed to her in a plate, she hasn't earned it.

    My mum knitted me a tank top when I was a kid, though it wasn't multi-coloured. It was red with these blue patterns.
