  1. When the ‘Wild’ proved more educated By Hema on February 19, 2010 When the British conquered Lahore in 1849, Lord Dalhousie, the Governor General, declared that he would educate the “wild illiterate Punjabis” in a new system of Anglo-Vernacular education. When they started the East India Company Board was shocked by what already existed. The board was amazed to find that the literacy rate in Lahore and its suburbs was over 80 per cent, and this was qualified by the description that this 80 per cent comprised of people who could write a letter. Today,
  2. Does anyone know any former students who went to the Akal Academy at Baru Sahib located in Himachal Pradesh? I keep on reading online reviews about the place which are full of positive feedback left by people who claims it is a top notch boarding school.
  3. I think we should send our children for year to be educated in Punjab, so they understand Sikhi culture, grow a bond with their homeland, learn to read/write Gurmukhi. I have noticed a few of these parchar on YouTube spent a lot of years back home. Jagraj Singh from basics of Sikhi and Satpal Singh both are two that come to mind. I know Muslims used to do this back in the day, dont know about now. Seen a few posts about the youth of today, and this popped in my head.
  4. We need to come up with an idea of building more religious sikh schools in Punjab as a way to teach our children about their history just like how we have these catholic school system in Canada. I did go to a catholic school and although they barely taught anything useful or convincing about Christianity(I mean anyone would be put off the religion by the rudeness of half of the people there) but we can follow a similar model in punjab where sikh parents can send their children to such schools so that they dont get brainwashed by these secular schools which tell them they shouldn't care about t

    Back into education

    Sangat ji, I was just wondering if anybody has experience going back into education in their 20's/30's? I'm currently employed, but finding the working hours difficult and in these uncertain times, I'm grateful to even have a job. However, I can't see myself doing this these shifts for the long term. Realistically, It would take me around 4 years to retrain. With all things considered, I wondering if it is worth it?

  13. WJKK WJKF, Ever since I've gotten into sikhi I have started thinking their isn't much use in education. Im not saying education is useless and everyone should not go to school. Im trying to say people put too much stress on education than sikhi. The things we learn in school arnt going to be of any use after we die, but the naam we japed and the things we learned from bani will. For example ever since I was young my parents said their is only use in education and nothing else, but if they had put that much emphasize on sikhi than education who knows where i would be. What are your t
  14. Pretty self explanatory. I was reading something on societies where there's a discernible class divide between northern and southern territories, and in most cases where the levels of education were low (what people are quick to label as 'backwards') the religious fervour and adherence was at its peak, whereas in areas where there are greater numbers of educated professionals there is a noticeable relaxation in religious adherence. Opinions on why that might be the case? Anyone else disturbed by the suggestion that religious adherence suggests a lack of intelligence (if measured by one's loca

  16. one of the reasons I believe most youth don't attend gurdwaras and most people only attend gurdwaras for functions is cause lack of good teachers a good teacher makes a subject exciting to learn for everyone and takes complex matters and simplifies them one of the problems with western education in the school system is lack of good teachers I remember khalsa camps being boring and sneaking away with friends I hated it and a lot of these khalsa camps havn't changed accept for a few what can be done to produce more inspirational teachers ive heard the excuse that a lot of Sikhs today are a
  17. By no means is this post intended to hurt the patriotism of these respective nations, but I just cannot help myself and criticize their education system. In India, under 'the great reformer', BJP, a new educational booklet has been published. The Tejomay Bharat aims to teach: STEM CELL RESEARCH In case you didn’t know this, Stem Cell Research, for example, dates back to the Mahabharat and the Vedic times. The text book explains, by citing the text of the mythological epic-poem which Hindus consider gospel: “… Kunti had a bright son like the sun itself. When Gandhari, who had not been ab

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Just two days after the India was shocked over the video of a principal at a Hyderabad-based school mercilessly caning three visually challenged children, a private tutor at Lake Town in the northern fringes of Kolkata was caught torturing a three-and-half-year-old on CCTV.
