  1. There was a discussion here a few days ago...I think it was in the wedding photo thread...about Sikh / Punjabi fashion. I was never terribly into fashion myself...to the great disspointment of my dad who to this day still has his bon marley stylee Gabbicci knit-ganzee cardigan hanging in his wardrobe. But the internet, Joobie tube, instabook, face chat, snap crack and popple are absolutely jam-packed these days with Singhs and Kaurs displaying their 'style'. We're overloaded with dastar wearing girls posing in shots showing how stylish and fashionable they look and it seems a Singh can't be a proper singh and get his picture on the world-wide web thingy these days unless he's laying on the dapper style with a cravatte, sporting the world's biggest turban or playing tonsil tennis with a transvestite. But what do i know about fashion ? Not that much really. I know uncles from Birmingham and the Midlands have a penchant for wearing cheap trainers with their suits and ladies from India will wear extraordinarily lovely gear from the top of their head to their ankles but will round it of with either the most horrible shoes or cheap nasty looking grey socks....under which are the hideously deformed feet that almost every female from India has. But apart from that, what do I know. The answer is nothing. I know this picture coming up below is meant to be really fashionable but to me looks like 3 extremely effeminate fellas heading off to the kusra convention: I know this Singh needs to re-think the whole length of the beard approach in order to make this work: I know the less I say about this Singh the better: I know in a few years Diljit's gonna regret ever being seen in public wearing this monstrosity and MC hammer pants: I know she doesn't look half as good as she thinks she looks : I know I'd like to punch these 3 in the face : I know given the chance I probably would; and i know if its cold enough to require a scarf and gloves you should at least give some thought to perhaps wearing a jacket or coat. but other than that.....I don't know much about fashion at all.
  2. advertised talk on FB of Sikh Discover Inspire GT1588 Initiative page , taking place at Khalili lecture hall , london WC1H 0XG on September 8th 2018 at 13:00 ticket 5GBP In our fifth talk of the series, Emeritus Professor at the University of Warwick, Eleanor Nesbitt, takes a journey of discovery through the writings and artworks of western women including the Eden sisters, Madame Helena Blavatsky and JK Rowling to reveal unique perspectives on the Sikh ladies they encountered over two centuries. This illustrated talk will be followed by a Q&A session. Eleanor Nesbitt is Emeritus Professor at the University of Warwick.

She has written numerous scholarly books, monographs and journal articles and has spoken at conferences in Europe, Africa and North America on the subject.

Note the dastar and chakar and farla ... another example of suppression of Kaurs' history by our own ?
  3. These two were lucky no serious harm had come to them but, given that we have already seen stabbing of another Kaur at College in Kashmir for refusing islam , days of safety for apnay are well and truly over in Kashmir: https://thekashmirwalla.com/2018/08/two-sikh-girls-kidnapped-from-chattisingpora-rescued/
  4. WJKK WJKF, thought we could appreciate some work from our brothers/sisters. this is the first writer, the name of the writer is unknown and some beautiful work below! (Should we start a series for the purpose?)
  5. WJKK WJKF, Now before this discussion begins, spare us all with "you aren't perfect so stop talking", "they might be better off on the inside" wale bachans, because yes, they might be better than us on the inside and we are not perfect. But as a panth, we should have the right to make sure that people are not misunderstanding sikhi and defining it their way, instead of that defined by Guru ji. there are quite a few women, who tie dastars and are amritdhari, beautiful but then some of them constantly reject the maryada. Now, I have been taught that a true Sikh never neglects the maryada and a true Sikh aims to follow the most of it. These women wear make up, shorts and low-neck shirts, dancing and singing songs, swearing. While feminism has a great role to play in the whole "make up and clothing" choices, they often blame some Singhs for exposing their body, which I am against, simply because both parties are luring the other into "lust" (read it from a post, makes sense) i read a few posts from kaurlife and they wish to achieve women equality by wearing fewer clothes because singhs do it, participate in the panj pyare and walking beside their husband during anand karaj. Ignoring that as a panth we are all in it together, we shall help each other instead of trying our best to let the other spiritually down. It is hard to have them listen to us, so... Opinions ?
