  1. Every person shud hv love for his mother tongue. I hv great love for my mother tongue punjabi but we can't say that Punjabi is sikhi and sikhi is Punjabi. That's what daler Kaur Khalsa said and it hurt some haryanvi jaats who hv become Sikhs. Jaats want to become Sikhs but they want to preserve and protect their mother tongue haryanvi. They told me that they would like to learn Punjabi as lots of sikh literature is in Punjabi but they can't backstab haryanvi.

  3. NOTE: This post is a work in progress Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Often times I hear Non-Sikhs bring up common arguments against Sikhi, and as someone who likes to create a lot online resource hubs for Sikhs, I am taking it upon myself to create a list of Q/A's. I recently got a series of arguments (posing as questions) from an anonymous user on the Sikh Reddit who was allegedly Ex-Sikh. He frequently made references to Islam, and also claimed that he had done a lot of research on his "questions", yet the questions themselves seem as if they are taken from wi
  4. This video illustrates notable female personalities across the globe where assorted topics are mentioned ranging from politics, career-paths, science, philosophy of Sikh heritage from a countless angles and breadth and depth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=husNH4RW-gQ Thank you.

  5. I have tried to refrain from commenting on this, but I have noticed these peculiarities in most posts on these forums over the years. So what is the explanation? Is it due to a different pronunciation in the Doabi dialect that most of you speak (I know most of you have roots in the Doaba region)?
  6. I just wanted to make my first post here because this has been playing on my mind for a while now. I feel like Sikhi Kirtan does not have the same passion I hear from other religious musical pieces, and as a result its not inspiring young people. I feel like the popular Kirtans are easy, dull, follows Bollywood/punjabi tunes and therefore lacks originality/identity/spiritualism. I have been listening to Islamic sufi music, Christian hymns and Hindu Kirtans - which I find all sound different and beautiful in their own way. With Sufi music drawing me in the most - even Bollywood adaptations like

  8. This applies to Punjabi’s too. why is lying compulsively and being dishonest and integral part of our culture. We consistently lie about everything from the trivial little lies to big white lies. The whole indoctrination of being “tej” from the other person by our parents, only a nicer way of saying how we should strive to be so dishonest and deceptive to get our “matlab” from someone rather than creating some actual value and having something good to offer. I came to Canada as an international student and just as any other student I’m currently on my work permit and at a m
  9. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. I thought as a positive, informative post, lets share punjabi food recipes and channels to help educate the youth on our beautiful cuisines and dishes. One good channel I found was Punjabi Veg Recipes: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-ND4aBWR5mlYxxZVBZm7fA Below are some of the recipes we've tried and taste nice: Roti (the essentials ) https://www.youtube.com/embed/gOZb1LGO9cQ Curry: https://www.youtube.com/embed/AKPdjnt6_Go Barfi (to wash it down with ) https://www.youtube.com/embed/hDEdyskQScc
  10. I was wondering is there anyone here who learnt to write punjabi on their own. I can read and speak well but can't write. I don't have a punjabi teacher. When I was a kid I used to go to punjabi class, but as an adult its hard to learn because you just don't know how to compared to my brothers who are coming from punjab. Like what type of exercises, stuff do you do. In the west punjabi is not a school subject. Please don't be generic. If there is anyone with experience that would be wonderful.
  11. As most of you are probably aware of the recent protests against Gurdas Maan in Canada and now spreading to the Punjab. All of this because of Gurdas Maans controversial support of BJP’s vision for India to become a Hindi speaking nation. People are feeling betrayed, as for years Gurdas Maan was seen to be pushing for Punjabiat through his songs and accumulated vast wealth in the process, although some of us were already aware of the negative influence of his songs on the youth of Punjab. His association with KPS Gill (the butcher) is well known but this has not tarnished his Demi-God
  12. After waiting ages to take a DNA test, I finally got around to it recently. The results were, for the most part, what I expected. Here's my estimate: Asia - 85.4% South Asian - 79.9% West Asian (Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Caucasus, Turkey) - 4.3% Central Asian (Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazahkstan) - 1.4% Europe - 14.6% North and West Europe Irish, Scottish, and Welsh - 11.6% Scandinavian - 3.0% Even though these are only estimates, they give an idea of my ethnicity in a broad sense. Nonetheless 14.6% is still conside

  14. Does anyone know any link for "Undithi Duniya" By Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh ji available to download? We have in English Translation, not in Punjabi here.
  15. vjk vjkf, Is there anyone here who is really really fluent in punjabi, like how they are in english. I can speak punjabi decently, but i still stutter sometimes, eat words, and sometimes break the flow of a conversation. I am not able to articulate my speech as I am in english ( and sometimes have difficulty expressing something because I don't know what words to use and how to construct that sentence in my mind) I wish to speak punjabi as I speak english, and let it be natural. How do you get there ? I can read in punjabi, but I am slower , and get tired of reading because i
  16. I am trying to learn punjabi language . what is real meaning of following words I heard randomly from some punjabi guys in college : 1) vichola 2) laada 3) aadi
  17. Shiv Kumar Batalvi wrote a poem about Guru Gobind Singh ji titled "aarti" he was a great man and did a lot of seva for Punjabi language during the time when the government was fast at work trying to replace Punjabi with Hindi and when Punjabi was seen as a ugly rural language he wrote some beautiful Punjabi poems.
  18. From certain people I was told now your marriage is over through the passing of my wife, that your ties to the family are now broken and I should not communicate, go over to the house etc. So my question is this what happens or is this a punjabi way of thought or is this taught to us through Guru Grant Sahib Ji?
  19. The Nirmale are a very old sect that was apparently started when a few sikhs were sent to Kanshi to learn Sanskrit from Brahmins under Guru Gobind Singh Ji's instruction. As a result, these Sikhs came back full of knowledge about Sanskrit but had been influenced by Brahminism as well. Thus this group twisted sikhi with a Vedantic view and claimed things like Guru Nanak Dev ji was an avtar of Vishnu and stuff. This sect has also had very close relations to Damdami Taksal. In the past, Nirmale Mahants/sants have had Taksali sants as their students and thus I think it is reasonable to assume that
  20. Just was wondering, I was totally oblivious to any caste system until i was 16 and went to college, it was not brought up in my house.
