  1. I guess he is a cultural sikh, so will culturally go to family events. Just like how some sikhs only go to gurdwara for family events
  2. they are not silent, it's probably better that you are pronouncing them. Check santhiya classes online and you will see that they are pronounced., and the way they are pronounced.
  3. my local MP is Boris.... Actually the Man before him was a good person, and was quite close to my family.
  4. oh it would be funny to see what modern gatkabajis would turn nunchakus into, they could put lights on it and make a light show LOL As for shastarvidiya, I reckon nunchaku could fit in with Varaha (Boar) pentra, and would fit in well with the close combat nature of pentras in shastar vidiya. Khalsa used to be good at taking in foreign weapons and reverse engineering. We need to continue with this!
  5. are we still replying to the original poster, since the thread was opened in 2017? I am sure he is 20 now!
  6. I mean before SGPC, the Akali Nihangs used to do jhatka in front of Akal Takht/Bunga (admin please don't get annoyed just stating history!!!). But I guess in a way ordering meat in is still kind of shameless since it isn't parshad like jhatka!
  7. I am not vegetarian, but I have lactose related intolerance and allergies. So I avoid milk however butter, (clarified) ghee and yogurt are ok to eat due to low lactose content, real lassi is ok to drink too as long as regular milk hasn't been mixed. Some people can also handle Raw milk as opposed to pasteurised supermarket milk. Also Guru Gobind Singh really recommends ghee to eat.

Under the control of the SGPC, this practice of Dasshera was stopped. However it still takes place at Hazur Sahib and the Akali Nihang Singh Khalsa. In a dispute about the leadership of Buddha Dal the Sikh mystic Akali Baba Mitt Singh said that who ever ensured this tradition with Shastar Puja,would remain intact, should be the rightful leader, to which Baba Kaladhari agreed. According to Uday Singh, in the foreward to Dusshera Mahatan Granth Sahib, he states that the worship of weapons was an ancient practice of the Devas and when the Guru formalised Shakti into the tradition of Bhakti, the worship of weapons was important to the Khalsa. Due to the Khalsa being a Raj Yogi, and needing to prepare the mind and spirit for battle. According to him this was stopped in the Akal Takht Sahib by the new commitee after 1919. At Hazur Sahib, Baba Mitt Singh ji had this Granth written by Bhai Ram Singh and Sewa Singh. it was first printed in the 1940s. The path is Akhand for nine days with the bhog on the tenth with these following bani's repeated: Jap Sahib, Akal Ustat, Bachitra Natak, Chandi Charitra Ukhati Bilas, Chandi Charitra, Chandi di //, Gian Prabodh, Chaubis Avatar, Ram Avatar, Krishnaavatar, Nihkalanki Avatar, Paras nath, Shabad Hazare, Svaiye, Khalsa Mahima, Shastra Nam Mala, Charitropakhyan first invocation, on the last day. Jap Sahib, full Chaupai Sahib, Ramavatar, Zafarnama Sahib, Svaiye, should be read."
  9. the committee system just doesn't work and we need an overhaul
  10. you are absolutely right. I especially see some jathas appropriate their members as gursikhs in order to take their behaviour and views as almost-perfect! Such a shame!
  11. Some of the jatha Singhs wear East Africa/Kenya Singh paghs, maybe the material in the pic is the same material for those kind of paghs?
  12. I mean you could tell them to do that, but the original poster hasn't posted on this forum since 2013, so I think your answer is 7 years late. Of course, since you're a guest on here, I have no idea if you are going to reply lol
  13. yeh, it would be good if someone brought back a site like sikhpal or sikhportal, they were good for meeting sikhs!

    I do apologise for bumping this really old thread, however this is one of the top results appearing in Google when searching for sikh navratri. Therefore I am posting this reply in case someone comes across this topic using Google (or perhaps other search engines):
  15. Just posting this up to make it easier for sikhs to find out about how we are meant to celebrate Navratri and Dusshera. There is actually something similar for Diwali as well where Dasvin 10th Patshah actually uses the word 'Diwali'! Hopefully I will find it before Diwali. https://www.facebook.com/652447751445011/photos/navratri-and-dushera-are-days-to-do-shastra-puja-the-nine-nights-of-naurate-star/995158367173946/ Since this post contains content objectionable to some jathe, I guess you will need to lock this. However please at least leave this post up so sikhs know how to celebrate Navratri and Dusshera, and can see the historical quotes.
  16. I just wanted to provide historical context for food. I know that sometimes when there were food shortages, Singhs had to attack enemies eating Muslim langar and sometimes the food even had halal meat, so they would do bhog of the food with kard to be able to eat it. Actually, first time Singhs were forced to do bhog of halal meat was when Guru Gobind Singh dressed as Uch Ka Pir. Guru ji was able to avoid the halal meat by saying they were fasting, however the sikhs who were dressed as the disciples didn't have any choice but to accept the halal offering. This is where Guru ji explained to his sikhs to do bhog on the halal meat to make it acceptable to eat. In conclusion, I am trying to explain that it's probably best you do bhog of whatever food you are offered in the army... With regards to gutka, it would probably be best to take a gutka which contains das Granthi banis since you will require these banis as they are geared for warriors! Since you will be in the army, it's probably a good idea to add at least Chandi Charitar Ustat, Chandi Di Vaar, Ugardanti and ShastarnaamMala 1 into your morning nitnem. Also read a warrior style Rehraas and Warrior style Aarti Aarta in the evening. Since Nihang Singhs from Budha Dal Tarna Dal already live a military lifestyle, they are the best to ask when it comes to which banis to read and how Singhs lived historically during battles etc...
  17. I think one thing that is important is you get as much chance as possible to chat to the girl, and also talk to the vicholay as well. Make sure you are not pushed into getting engaged, as families in India can be pushy!
  18. I mean if we look in our families in Punjab, India and even the west, we have guys within families who are skinny or a bit feminine looking, does't mean they become gay? These guys just take the mick, with their creepy exaggerated joker smiles and exaggerated feminine dancing in the video! Just bare creepiness.... Also if you go to Sundeep's insta account, you will also see their videos and photos of their gay south indian wedding in the first Spotlight thingy! The dad looks like he has just given up! That Sundeep fella doesn't have many insta followers, and hasn't hidden his profile. Is he trying to get attention and followers? oh I see, good detective work lol!
  19. I used to be part of a site called sikhpal https://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/SikhPal.com , which was a sikhi forum but was also good for socialising with other sikhs. Then someone created something very similar called sikhportal. None of those exist anymore, but I think sites like those were really good for sikhs to get to know one another on a global scale and maybe even help with matrimony!
  20. How do you know that, I have no idea how to tell that? Is it from the weird expressions they are making in the pics and videos? Isn't a boy going to have mental trauma from being raped by older men who are supposed to be their mentors or tutors?
  21. also on the other hand, how would a guy find a "good" white girl and explain to her that he doesn't want to 'date' her in the modern sense, ie doesn't want to get into a partnership before marriage? I mean I think a white girl would be expecting to be picked up before marriage right, and not expect to wait until marriage to have a partnership? I mean there could be white girls that might understand, but I think there would be a lot of explaining required ?!?!
  22. How do you find white girls without baggage of ex boyfriends, I think you normally have to find a teenager to find decent white girls? Prove me wrong... How does one find a "good" white girl who doesn't have any ex-boyfriends from dating? there is a difference between looking at social media and posting lots of pictures and videos of yourself, a huge difference Just going to ask again, how does one find decent white girls who aren't into dating and don't have ex boyfriends? Also doesn't do glassy?...
  23. lol if there was a man sitting on another's lap in India like in the pic, it might just mean they are friends lol But I do understand, I mean if being deeply in love is about showing the world pictures of getting physical such as sitting on your partner's lap, then I really have to question their mindset about love and marriage.... I mean I can't take it seriously, the facial expressions the couple make in the photos and videos make it looks like some kind of comedy show, like they are a bunch of jokers!
