Joining the Army, need advice/tips on how to keep rehit
Guest posted a topic in GUPT FORUMVaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, I am leaving for the U.S Army in the next month (basic training for 10 weeks at a fort where I will be cut off from the rest of the world). So I wanted some tips on how to keep practicing Sikhi in an environment that is not so conducive to it. I'm having paperwork done to get the religious accommodation to keep my kes, dari and wear a dastaar. So that exception will be made (which is my biggest relief) but I have so many other questions! I would really appreciate the help from anyone but especially those who have been through the military or army basic training specifically. -How do you care for long hair when you have minimal time/products? -How do you wear a kachera when doing athletic activities all day long and wearing thick pants over? Did you wear one? I really want to but I also want to be practical. Are there special types of kachere sold? Like athletic ones? -Does anyone know of someone who has personally been through basic training and done the gas mask test with their beard? Was the mask seal adequate enough or did it leak air? -On Sundays everyone is allowed to attend a religious service, they have many available but have to make special accommodations if they don't have what someone needs. (They don't have Sikh services so they'll have to make one somehow) How does that work for Sikhs? Do have some granthi or parcharak come? Would they let you go off-base to Gurdwara? If they can't accommodate me then I'm thinking of just attending the Contemporary Christian services so I can sing God's praises there because I heard out of all the options, they sign the most. -How is the vegetarian food? I know MREs come in veg option. How was the overall experience? -Kirpan? Did you wear/bring one? Gatra? If they don't allow it then could I just ask them to issue me one of their approved military tac knives? -Dastaar? What kind of cloth, is it the typical kapra? Do they issue you one or expect you to buy one separtely that matches the camo pattern of the uniform? -Gurbani? You can't bring any books or text with you except for a religious or holy book, so I recently bought a Gutka that I want to bring. Will I even have time to read it? I bought a big one with like 10+ Banis, should I just bring a smaller 5 Bani Nitnem instead? This is my first Gutka ever since I normally just use phone apps, but we will get our phones taken away the first day, so a Gutka was necessary to buy for me. How should I treat it? I keep it wrapped in cloth when I'm not reading it, I know it's not exactly our Guru Granth Sahib but I still want to respect it correctly. What are the rules on how we treat Gutkas? How do you do this while traveling or away from home? Any other tips you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

INQUALAAB2012 posted a topic in POLITICS | LIFESTYLEIT IS TIME TO MAKE A CONCERTED EFFORT TO ACHIEVE A FREE PUNJAB! THIS REQUIRES ACTIVISM IN THE INTERNATIONAL MEDIA AND POLITICAL FORUM. HOWEVER, THAT WILL NOT BE SUFFICIENT TO ACHIEVE JUSTICE OR FREEDOM. WE NEED TO HURT INDIA ECONOMICALLY BY BOYCOTTING AS MANY HINDU PRODUCTS STARTING WITH THE BOLLYWOOD CRAP THAT SO MANY OF YOU "SOLDOUT PUNJABIS" ADORE SO MUCH! WE CAN ALSO PUT PRESSURES ON HINDUS LIVING AMONGST US OUTSIDE OF INDIA (LET'S MAKE LIFE HELL FOR THEM. WE NEED TO STOCKPILE ARMS AND TEACH GATKA/COMBAT TO OUR YOUNG. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY WE NEED TO GET OUR SIKH BROTHERS TO TURN THEIR BACKS ON INDIAN MILITARY. THIS MUST BE FOLLOWED BY REACHING OUT TO ALL ENEMIES OF INDIA INCLUDING MAOISTS, PAKISTANIS ETC (MY ENEMY'S ENEMY IS MY FRIEND). INQUALAAB IN PUNJAB.....LONG LIVE THE RESISTANCE.....RAAJ KAREGA KHALSA!
