  1. I use to get triggered and upset when my dad use to go off on apne using similar phrases to the one you've used above, lol. Little did I know at the time he was spot-on.
  2. In my experience that's true, but I've seen the exact same brand of unhinged behaviour from "shaehriyeh lok" i.e. people who pride themselves on not living in pinds like those pendu "sorts" they think are beneath them. It's so pervasive in the culture regardless of background it's actually rather sickening. I found myself drawn to the god-forsaken Pakistani and non-Sikh Indians for some respite and common sense! Imagine: your own people are such a lost cause that Muslims and Baiyeh are preferable as company, because they actually know how to treat a person with decency. That little period in m
  3. These women are more savvy and street-smart than a born-and-raised Western, middle-class Sikh male. Fact. They all (the men) have deception, wiles and charm in their arsenal but they have no response to violence and intimidation. That's one guaranteed way to get them in line. They also have that pathological Indian need to defer to whiteness, which is rather amusing and simultaneously pathetic to observe.
  4. History... written... victors... etc. Losers of wars are seldom provided the courtesy of constructing the narrative and terms of their defeat. If anything they're demonised and humiliated, and accused of doing the very feats they were at pains to avoid.
  5. Where have I argued any differently? I've suggested a soldier does the job definitively so that his enemy can't be nursed back to health by a religious do-gooder. If someone wants to enter God's Abode, I'd argue the battlefield is the last place to virtue signal. It shows a distinct lack of concern for one's fellow brothers in arms. It's actually incredibly short sighted and selfish. I'm beginning to suspect these tales have been constructed by people who've never had to fight in their lives, because only such people could ever completely ignore the reality of war. For one moment, imagine
  6. They know what they're getting themselves into. They aren't children. In most cases, this period of their life becomes a "war story" of sorts they look back on and chuckle about amongst themselves in private. Empathy should be reserved for those with similar values. Most of these people are sociopaths who wouldn't urinate on any of us if we were on fire. I had the misfortune of working with these exact brand of Sikhs for 18 months a few years back when I was getting back on my feet, and I promise you they possess ZERO of the sentimentality that we pampered, gullible, and out-of-touch West
  7. The people getting roped into fighting wars will need PHDs in religious philosophy and an extra requirement of rubber brains to navigate the mental gymnastics apne churn out at times to justify certain concepts. Just accept it's okay to want to see your enemy dead. I don't want to hug him or love him. I want his blood, not his friendship. The rest are superfluous concepts too complex for Punjabi minds that have never been adhered to in the cold harsh reality of war, and if true would get good men killed needlessly.
  8. I suppose Bhagat Ravidas Ji's heart-wrenching lamentations about caste discrimination (which later became part of Gurbani) were just a figment of his imagination?
  9. What do you propose we view them as when they become the enemy again ONLY because they were nursed back to health by our side? If we keep healing them and they return to reduce our numbers thanks to our demented efforts to please God knows who, what then? It's cloud cuckoo-land. Who fights a war to WIN with such a horribly confused philosophy hanging over their heads? Too late for this now. My cynical self suspects this to be revisionisim to save face or rectify centuries of damaging parchaar that has had the opposite affect of what was intended. NOT ONE giani or kathavachak has
  10. When the cornerstone of Sikh religious philosophy (that's been repeatedly expounded to the sangat for centuries) is of a beloved Sikh sevadar who provided succour to enemy combatants on the battlefield rendering the soldierly efforts of his fellow Sikhs to be next to useless, is held up as an aspirational mentality to be cherished and emulated, then what else should we expect?
  11. Almost as unbearable as some Singhs constantly crying about not being able to get women for vague, unspecified, and unconvincing reasons!
  12. Hey there, bro. Thanks for asking after me. I'm surrounded by timber, tiles, and paint from morning to evening, leaving little time for much else, lol. I've stopped getting notifications on mobile unless I login on a computer, but I haven't had time to do that for months. Thankful to be earning a crust in these tough times. God's grace as always.
  13. Any so-called spiritual figure that throws their weight behind a political regime to the extent that he has should be viewed with skepticism. He's obviously entitled to his views, but you can't market yourself as this great and balanced transcendental figure, and then be a staunch Modi mouthpiece on principle regardless of merit. I can't take that kind of partisanship seriously. I expect it from the uninformed average man but not from someone who's supposedly a viewer of the bigger picture.
  14. I'm sure most of you would refuse to acknowledge any person who considers themselves a Sikh who doesn't believe and follow the basic tenets of Sikhi regardless of their self identified labels. Same theory applies to "Muslims" of the Guru period (as well as those whose Bani was included in Sikh scriptures) who rejected Islamic philosophy and practices. They were viewed as apostates by the Qazis and the general knowledgeable Muslim population, but we, in all our "wisdom" seem to love reminding the world how these saints and devotees were definitely Muslim. How could they be Muslim when they arri
  15. I'm glad you've raised this issue, Singh. Sikhs need to be aware of and reject the erroneous propaganda about Sufism that's been run rampant among us for centuries. We've been convinced that Sufism is the acceptable, friendly, and pro-Sikh brand of Islam from which we should take some of our cues. History proves that powerful Sufi contemporaries of our Guru Sahib's were far from enthusiastic about Sikh growth and their existence in general. But we love to get our Sufi on and act like we're a bunch of desert dwelling mystics like Sartinder Sartaj and the rest of that bollox. As I've said
  16. From my experience homelessness is linked to severe drug addiction. If the drug dependency can be tackled the homeless problem can be fixed permanently in most cases. Nobody decides to be homeless. It's usually the result of a rather grave set of circumstances spiralling out of control. The subtext of whenever we meet a homeless person is, "I need money for drugs and possibly something to eat and drink." Grinding their gears with anything else designed to inflate the ego / standing of the person assisting is cruel IMO.
  17. They're probably the black equivalent of their white racist counterparts. Someone or another is riling them up with nonsense.
  18. https://www.wagmtv.com/2021/05/02/sikh-man-struck-in-head-with-hammer-on-way-to-work-in-nyc/ Don't know why black men in the U.S. seem to be going after orientals and Sikhs in this way?
  19. Covid is something that certainly exists but this kind of media bull5hit doesn't help those who like to stir the pot.
  20. I spoke to a younger relative of mine in india who's currently training / on a placement in the medical profession, and she says the Indian media is causing hysteria. Apparently, it's like as if a switch has been flipped and they seem to be going all-out with a particular narrative. There are obvious problems but they've always been there since the outbreak started. Quite interesting from someone on the front line. I don't think she's a desh bhagat defending Modi.
  21. One aspect of religious mass gatherings during the pandemic is the idea pushed by prominent preachers / personalities that God will protect his "true" devotees from the Corona, so there's no need to worry about distancing and the rest. Hilarious and dangerous.
  22. What's caused this explosion in cases? I mean, why now and not earlier?
  23. They've really started to enforce various unrelated minor things since the pandemic legislation came into force. It's like they've been given a greenlight to be busy bodies.
