  1. Sometimes it's black and white. Always seeking the middle ground or the grey area despite evidence pointing to the contrary may seem like the fair and balanced approach, but clinging to that type of relativism because the apparent reality is unpalatable and difficult to process, doesn't lessen the veracity of the truthful fact itself. It just means the person in question is reluctant, unable, or afraid of attesting to the truth.
  2. It's no coincidence the same families and figures continue to rear their heads in one form or another throughout history.
  3. Gotta agree with this. It's not ideal, but we need a strong "street" presence away from the lily-livered, soft intellectuals in the diaspora quom who've aligned themselves with factions that serve us no purpose or benefit, or in extreme cases serve to do us serious harm under the guise of friendship and tolerance. Invariably, these guys are going to end up rubbing some people up the wrong way because they don't temper their strength with spirituality, but at this point in time we aren't in a place where we have much of a choice. Perhaps in the coming years we'll be blessed with more rounded personalities who are in-line with the full gamut of Gurmat values, but for now let's think ahead a little bit. I just wish we had more Sikhs with the spirit of warriors but also the unwavering loyalty for Sikhi and our people, coupled with cunning and knowledge to deal with the wolves in sheep's clothing. Any so-called educated or intellectually minded Sikh who doesn't identify with the thug lifestyle seems to gravitate almost as default to the side of our opponents. There's no sense of rajneeti at all. For the sake of clarity, I don't have any ties to any of the personalities in this issue. I'm an impartial observer.
  4. I try not to get too caught up in something as nebulous as the Khalsa. It's like Catholics becoming upset when the Vatican doesn't seem to cater to individual or specific concerns. Plus, I'm not even sure how to define the Khalsa's strength as it pertains to an organisation such as City Sikhs. Do groups like City Sikhs even register their presence? How would the Khalsa go about interacting with these contemporary organisations?
  5. It's true, lol. I expect to see, in my lifetime, these types of Sikhs attempting to push so many of the current niche, Far Left lifestyle choices onto the Sikh community in the next 20 to 30 years. The only reason they're tempering that push at the moment is not through choice, but because they understand the backlash isn't worth the hassle. With the passage of time (and as these trends become the norm in the mainstream), this faction of Sikhs will grow more powerful and vociferous, with official legislation backing them up for support, until they feel safe enough to wade into religious matters.
  6. It's amusing because they'd consider themselves the creme of the crop among forward looking, modern Sikhs with their finger on the pulse of 21st century trends and moods. They'd probably consider most of us on here to be dinosaurs.
  7. Nothing too sinister. It's just a case of using the Sikh label for commercial interests (bidding for business contracts through links forged by these types of organisations...) and securing funding from government sources under the guise of, as they would say, ensuring extremist attitudes in the community are tackled, etc. Most, if not everything, of the manner in which they undertake their work is rooted in the contemporary liberal worldview (pro-LGBTQ, pro-Open Borders, etc., as spearheaded by UN affiliated organizations, among others, such as the Council of Foreign Relations...), and it's safe to say the broad Sikh orthodox religion practiced by most of us isn't what drives the central ethos or activities of these groups. When there's compromises to be made, Sikhi is usually the first thing that makes way. Just my opinion.
  8. There's a tonne of great documentaries on YouTube about every subject under the sun. Check them out. It'll take your mind off things and you'll learn something.
  9. It's easy to fall into the trap of cynicism when it comes to these types of organisations and personalities. Deep down, for those of us who've been round the block, we know exactly what drives these people and what the type of people they are behind the scenes, but if some small good can come from whatever it is they do, then I think it's a good thing. I'm probably being a lot kinder than I should, lol.
  10. I think for that transaction (between teacher and student) to reach and fulfil its most fruitful outcome, it requires exemplary character and personality on both sides, else I feel the exchange between the two parties might be rewarding for both parties (dependent on respective wants), but the greater moral and perhaps spiritual affects of imparting that knowledge is, in my opinion, devalued if the individuals involved in that transaction are unworthy or lacking in some way, particularly in the case of this subject as it relates to ensuring a unique art to a particular culture or group, does not gradually die out. Does that sound judgemental? Perhaps. I don't think that's necessarily a negative each and every time.
  11. Let me think about it some more. I'm somewhere in the middle of understanding the need to reward the instructors for imparting their knowledge, but also realising the nature of how our cultural habits work against us in areas where there's very little immediate enrichment and material value. It's an interesting subject.

    Problem

    No one's worth harmfully affecting your equilibrium to this extent. Extract the lesson that needs to be learned from this experience; use it to make you wiser and stronger, and move on. Don't fall for the destructive dramatics pushed by entertainment industries and the media. I can guarantee you the ex object of your affection isn't moping around succumbing to grief and questioning her reality, lol. As harsh as it may sound, why expend so much mental energy for someone who doesn't want you? In the years you've pined for her, or at least mourned the relationship, has she been in touch? No, course not. She's moved on. In fact, I'd say she's portraying more of a masculine, resolute approach to this than OP. Make up your mind to move on and mentally discard the memories of the relationship, and get to fixing the truly important things, such as your health and mending your religious and spiritual ties. Always look at the bigger picture which means looking at your life with a critical eye from a distance. Don't spend too much time in your own head. Good luck.
  13. I used H&S once (free sample through the letterbox, lol); never again. Made my kesh dry and brittle. Some of the more modest brands do a better job, such as Alberto Balsam and a few others. I've never had scalp issues but there must be a desi ilaaj for those type of flare-ups. It's one thing going out and smelling of various Indian oils, but I don't see a problem with massaging the head with oil for an hour or so before shampooing it out. Also aids in a peaceful night's sleep in my experience.
  14. It'll set a precedent they don't want to encourage, which suggests on some level they understand there may be a possibility the Kashmir problem isn't something that would be resolved entirely in their favour. The important thing to understand is that India is a country of myriad and opposing religions, cultures and languages that are somehow held together by national state apparatus that wants to keep it that way. Why'd you think they went to the extents they did -- and still are doing although in a more subversive manner -- against Sikhs? They did not want Sikhs to break ties with India and form their own nation state, because if we'd succeeded others would've been emboldened and followed suit, and what would remain of India? That's why the "One India" propaganda is pushed so vehemently, even more so in current times, because of the Indian desire to ensure it does not "Balkanise" into disparate states based on religion and language. That would be the end, and it wouldn't arrive without bloodshed. Granted, the Kashmir issue is a little more thorny and complex, but I think the general idea still applies, plus the added needle of ceding ground to their old adversary would be a national humiliation.
  15. The skirmishes between the two countries that took place during the 60s and 70s will never be allowed to happen again on that scale, until there's the inevitable and unavoidable regional conflict that will occur as part of a greater World War scenario where the Western string-pullers will be preoccupied with their own troubles to care what's happening. Like I said, an exclusive Ind v Pak situation will not be permitted to escalate as the rest of the world looks on. At best, we're looking at a behind the lines, t1t-for-tat situation of false encounters and border activity.
