  1. This is an example of how we are seen by a lot of non-Sikhs: 400m Indian athlete, Milkha Singh. Wiki: '..one of 15 siblings, 8 of whom died before the Partition of India. He was orphaned during the Partition when his parents, a brother & 2 sisters were killed in the violence' I have yet to meet a Sikh I don't like, beautiful people.
  2. Charities rarely help the people they claim to help. The money you provide goes to the administration costs and salaries of the charities. The question is how the money is being allocated and is it being effective in the way it is being spent I personally think instead of whining about poor Sikhs in India we should find a more effective way. Why don't we choose a poor Sikh kid and sponsor them for their education. Help them with books, school uniforms etc, school fees etc. Poor Sikhs like many of us Sikhs can be quite stubborn to ask for help. We have to help them in the r
  3. This does not set a good presedence for the Afghan Sikh and Hindu community. Because the next time there is an atrocity in Afghanistan and these Sikhs and Hindus ask for help then India will turn their backs on them.
  4. It's more like he's seen this type before. Fortune tellers are dime a dozen in India. Just merely a bit of amusement for Sant ji.
  5. From twitter, the FedEx building apparently has 90 percent of Sikh background. But out of the 8 killed, 4 were Sikh and 4 were non Sikh. However, Sikh twitter is considering this as a hate crime. But if there are non Sikh killed also, can it be an anti-Sikh hate crime. If a lone gunman who happens to be white and kills white people, black people, brown people. Does the fact that he killed black people and brown people make him a racist?
  6. We don't how Maharaj's hukam works in it's entirety. Man is part of nature too so it is possible that man's interaction with animals creates adaptation. Dogs came from wolves and they would not be what they are if it was not for humans.
  7. "It is the mark of a charalatan to explain a simple concept in a complex way."
  8. One of the examples you can see Ahankar and Nimrat that can be seen working together is with sportspeople. I have always wondered why sportspeople can seem full of themselves, quite arrogant and cocky. But I guess the nature of competition does this. Having Ahankar has a part in the competitiveness. Then question is then does having Bir Ras have level of Ahankarness. But when 2 ego-heavy come against each other and there is conflict. You see this with boxers a lot. But after the fight, you see the humility and mutual respect.
  9. This is something that has mulled me for a long time. Even though Ego is a vice and Humility is a virtue and you would think they are complete opposites and have nothing to do with each other. I have come to the realisation that these two are related to each other. I see them on a see-saw in that if one of these goes up, the other one goes down. However, I think the ego is another necessary vikaar (it does serve a function) because too much humility can make one like a doormat. These two need to be seen in their contexts and they need to be balanced like yin and yang.
  10. Gretadeep is the type who accuses you of beadbi if you accidently drop parshaad in the gurdwara.
  11. Modern Science talks about emotional stress and how it impacts the nervous system. You have sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Anger/Krodh is an emotional stress that maybe has a short term function but can cause health problems if it is prolonged. Now psychologists talk about meditation as an aid to calm your nervous system and to help manage stress? What do you think Gurbani does? What does naam simran do? It helps to calm your nervous system, it helps to manage stress. Gurbani not only helps you spiritually but also mentally and physically too.
  12. I read a lot of stuff from a western psychological perspective. It's what makes me value and appreciate gurbani even more. Bani is so far ahead, modern science is trying to catch up.
  13. I am all for renewable energy. But sometimes I do wonder about it's reliability. I do wonder about whether the environmentalists have thought things through properly. I don't want to fight with the Gretadeep Kaur Thunbergs though.
  14. This is an example of Krodh from Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump. He was a fauji and he wanted shaheedi like his father and grand father but he lived but lost his legs in the Vietnam war and he was angry with Maharaj. He was in a storm and his anger came out: But he had to submit to Maharaj's hukam and he found Sukh:
  15. Krodh is a very peculiar vikaar. Me personally, my Krodh can be directed towards Maharaj because I sometimes feel there is great injustice in the world and I sometimes feel that the least deserving get the best outcomes and the best people get the worst outcomes. And I do ask Maharaj, "Why the great paradox? " In life, I understand there are obstacles and struggles and they must be overcome. Otherwise if life was smooth sailing, there would no point in being here. We have a part to play. I have had to change my perspective on the way I look at things. This has only ha
  16. It is Maharaj in his kirpa that can decide whether a Non-Sikh will go to Sachkand. Maharaj's hukam is universal. It is not for us to be able to assume whether a Non Sikh will not go/ go to Sachkand. A non-Sikh has to be answerable to their karma like the rest of us. This is between the Non-Sikh and Maharaj.
  17. Depends where the solar panels are placed. Is it going to be a blot on the landscape? What's next? Wind Turbines?
  18. The only way they could make it £299 is to make it like an Indian bus and have 900 standing passengers. And I can bet you that if parachutes were provided, someone would say that they can see their pind from 20,000 feet and you can drop the hatch and they will skydive from there
  19. They don't tell you about the taxes that will go with that price. It will more like £500 to £600.
  20. I find these type of articles kind of misleading. One of things about some female MPs is that they focus on the sisterhood than all their constituents. If a male MP focused on male constiuents like some of the female MPs focused on female constiturnts, there would be uproar and claims of misogyny and toxic masculinity. For example: We have no understanding at this moment what the impact of those cuts are [or] where those cuts are. It’s disheartening – 20 million more secondary school-aged girls could be out of school after the pandemic [and] an additional 47 million wome
  21. Well, the Jihadis and Hindutvadis may cause of a war attrition between themselves and exhaust themselves.
  22. That is how we need to think as a quam. There maybe opportunities for us and we will have to leverage our position. We could become power brokers.
  23. That is how far ahead the Chinese are thinking. They are thinking in decades. They control Lithium market and if anyone understands what lithium is , it is what the batteries for mobile phones and batteries for electric vehicles use. So imagine how well they have positioned themselves when petrol driven vehicles declines and electric vehicles take off. So when Tesla and Elon Musk are building their gigafactories and building cars, who do they depend on? A large part of Australia's economy as well as New Zealand's economy depends on China for it's exports. So it is also west
