  1. They end after (ਦੁਸਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥) because after this, Guru Sahib ends the Benti and now thanks Akaal Purakh for completing the Granth (Charitropakyan). I personally think its fine to read the last 2 Pauris (ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਕਰੀ ਹਮ ਪਰ ਜਗਮਾਤਾ ॥ and ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਸਿਧੁਜ ਜਬ ਭਏ ਦਯਾਲਾ ॥) and the Arril (ਸੁਨੈ ਗੁੰਗ ਜੋ ਯਾਹਿ ਸੁ ਰਸਨਾ ਪਾਵਈ ॥), but I do not see why the Choupai after that one (ਸੰਬਤ ਸਤ੍ਰਹ ਸਹਸ ਭਣਿਜੈ ॥) needs to read. This choupai is literally just mentioning the date and location where the Granth was completed. It makes sense if someone was doing Paath of the whole Charitropakyan granth, but not when doing Benti Chaupai.
  2. Here is a view from our House in Banga, Punjab.
  3. Due to his tax cuts, our middle class family paid less on taxes. In my opinion, with the buzzwords aside, he is doing a OK job. The only thing I think is bad about him are his annoying tweets and his immoral character.
  4. I only watch Shapiro to find what masala is happening in politics, otherwise there are better intellectuals to watch. Milo is a dead meme, he is a provocateur and has no substance.
  5. With the recent replacing of the Door of the Sri Harmandir Sahib Darshani Deori and now this incident, hopefully it will stop. They all denounce it now because it has been made public and majority of the Panth is against them. These Kar Sevaks have been under with SGPC for over 4 decades now destroying our heritage, but these guys never said a word. Where was Dhumma (who has a large influence in SGPC in the past decade) when these decisions were made? This is SGPC's fault, they authorized these Kar Sevaks to do the damage they did. The SGPC is frantically trying to fix its image by blaming the Babas, but reality is that the blame goes on them. The Kar Seva Babas are just contractors.
  6. This Gurdwara is where my Parents and Grandparents used to go as they originally came from Banga. While the land for the Gurdwara was given by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the building itself was built in the 1920's I think.
  7. I posted a photo earlier of some guy destroying the Original Sri Akal Takht Sahib that was built by Guru Sahib, people do this type of stuff.
  8. Look here: http://dailysikhupdates.com/collection-rare-pictures-sri-harmandir-sahib-ji/
  9. http://karsewatarntaran.com/karsewa.aspx?SewaId=7&Sewa=Completed Look the first photo of the tree. How is that tree going to survive!!?!?! So many Historical trees have died because they literally choked the tree roots with marble.
  10. Yea, some of them they just plated the original building with marble and painted them. Thats fine, but I never understood them knocking down the whole building, even if it is structurally unsound. They should be hiring experts to preserve them.
  11. If they were proper civil engineers and architects, they could have a plan to build on top of the original building and solidify it. Then expose parts of the original historical building (and maybe cover with glass for protection) to show sangat. But nope, lets just let Kar Seva babay knock it down and rebuild.
  12. My hope lies in Pakistan, where Gurdwaras are still have been mostly left untouched ever since partition. While a few Gurdwaras have crumbled and gone away, there are many that are have no one looking after them but are still standing. I want to see real Civil Engineers and architects restore these Gurdwaras without knocking anything down.
  13. It's good to see people are now FINALLY waking up to what these Kar Seva Babas (which SGPC gave permission) have done. Here are a few pictures of Anandpur Sahib (Qila Anandgarh Sahib): Old: New: (notice the similarities, keep in mind the angle is a bit different) There is hope, look at the original brick work exposed.
  14. The Indian Government paid Santa Nihung to rebuild the Sri Akal Takht Sahib. The Sikhs at the time did not accept this new Takht and called it the Sarkari Takht, so they tore it down and built a new one. In reality, they just used Santa Nihung to "legitimize it". He never built it, Indian Government contractors did. Santa would get some his guys to pick up buckets full of rocks to show they were doing something while being recoreded on Doordarshan TV.
  15. That brick is the original Takht built by Guru Sahib. Maharaja Ranjit Singh built on top of it. I think if you go there today, the brick is exposed behind some glass. Where Parkash is done is on top of the Brick Takht.
  16. These guys are illiterate, honestly. After '84, when they were knocking down the Sarkari Takht and rebuilding the Sri Akal Takht Sahib, some Maha Moorakhs had started hammering away at the original brick Takht that was build by Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji and Bhai Gurdas Ji!!!! Giani Mohinder Singh (the first secretary of the SGPC, who is retired at the time) had to protest there and tried very hard to convince them to stop destroying the Takht built by Guru Sahib. If it wasn't for him, we would have lost the original Takht!!!! Here is a photo:
  17. They have done this for years, look at the Tanda Burj recently for example.
  18. With the money, knowledge, and connections SGPC has, they should be hiring experts to preserve these buildings and solidify them for the coming centuries. SGPC had to bring international scientists to make sure the Dukh Bhanjani Beri didn't DIE at Sri Darbar Sahib due to the Marble around it (which was put by Kar Seva Babas), the tree roots couldn't get enough nutrients. Why SGPC can't do the same with buildings baffles me. There are also many other Historical trees in other gurdwaras that are either dead or dying, but no one cares as they aren't popular gurdwaras like Sri Darbar Sahib.
  19. Why can they not just restore it? That is also Kar Seva. If these Babas really want their name on the building and want $$$ in their pocket, restoring Historical buildings still gives them the same outcome. What incentive to they have to destroy it? There has to some agenda to destroy our heritage.
  20. The Indian scholars are already reforming and changing the calendar anyway. They switched from Suraj Sidhant to Drik Gannit in 1967, and they have hinted that further reform is needed as Hindus are worried about their festivals drifting with the seasons as well.
