  1. I think some of these sevadaars take the phrase "Sikhi CAMP" quite literally. Camp = ostentatious, exaggerated, affected, theatrical; effeminate or homosexual; pertaining to, characteristic of, homosexuals. So as a noun, 'camp' behaviour, mannerisms, et cetera.
  2. So much undercover gay and paedo stuff. Are the numbers seemingly par for the course relative to our overall numbers as a minority, or do we have a serious problem that is being ignored? And why do they apparently seem drawn to one particular jatha?
  3. Why has nobody ever seen the ghost of a dinosaur?
  4. Do you think the floor plan of the darbar hall in Gurdwareh on Indian soil mimic the layout of Harmandir Sahib if we were to look at it from above? It's similar to what you're describing. The slightly off-vertical (nearer to the back) location of the building itself / Guru Granth Sahib Ji, while the fairly long-ish middle path leading up to the building / the location of Guru Granth Sahib Ji. That's interesting.
  5. Punjabi, even in its most unpretentious and earthy form, is actually rather descriptive and metaphorical. My appreciation for it has definitely grown the more I've looked into it.
  6. The thread title sounds like the beginning of an off-color and depressing joke but in the style of the old, "Why did the chicken cross the road?" type of things.
  7. You know why this behaviour has been exacerbated in our people in the West? Relative financial success and subsequent status attainment has overridden all other equally important issues pertaining to the development of character, ethics, and behaviour standards. As long as a person is raking in the cash, nothing else seemingly matters. He could be an absolute cretin without any redeeming traits, but if he's onto a nice earner, nobody is on his case to become a better, whole personality. Nobody says, "No, that's wrong. You shouldn't be doing or saying things like that" when someone like that exhibits the worst traits of their personality. Instead, I see, those who benefit directly from his graft (parents, wife) are at pains to downplay and excuse his behaviour with a laugh, because they're on the gravy train, and they don't want the ride to end. This then enables such people to continue as they are because they aren't challenged. These types of Punjabi males are essentially overgrown children. They're about as deep as a shallow puddle.
  8. I was invited to a Sukhmani Sahib paat at the Gurdwara a couple of years back for the first time in ages, and I was blown away by the total shambles of the sangat assembled. Full-blown conversations on both sides; people playing with phones and watching football highlights; kids running around like it was daycare, etc. I was disgusted. I got up to tell the stage secretary to make a polite announcement to inform the sangat to keep it down and have some respect, which he did, but that lasted for barely 5 minutes. Pathetic. This was me at the end:
  9. The one thing that really gets to me about people's behaviour during an Anand Karaj is the complete lack of solemnity for as long as they're in the diwaan hall. There's no hushed voices or even an attempt at some semblance of humility. They talk as loudly as if they're standing or sitting in any old communal setting. The focus of the attendees is entirely on the bride and groom, which may sound silly, but I remember when Guru Granth Sahib Ji was the focal point of an Anand Karaj. Even Sehajdhari couples seemed to understand the gravity of that moment back in the day, but couples today swan into the hall as if they demand to be the centre of attention. I'm not an old fogey (yet) but I can only guess that the parents themselves have no idea of the behavioural standards expected in that particular scenario. It's like watching the gradual degradation of something precious and good. It's sad because some of us can still vividly recall a period when it wasn't like what it's become, and strangely it wasn't so long ago when that standard was mainstream. What's happened to us?
  10. My best friend in secondary (high) school was a Saudi. His family emigrated to the UK when he was a baby. Great lad but the things he'd tell me about that part of the world and the people. For some reason, the Pakistani lads hated him, which is weird considering he was, one might argue, from the very heart of where their faith originated, but he was treated with indifference by his so-called brethren. You won't hear me dispute that ^^^ !
  11. The passage through Muslim countries is a joke. I'd rather swim.
