  1. If we did not develop the electronic age as it is now with TV, cinema, computers/internet etc, what would be the state of Sikhi in India right now? I mean without all the rubbish Bollywood/Hollywood movies, cassettes/CD/Mp3/youtube music and TV influences on the masses? Would our heroes be only the Guru's and Puratan Singhs/Singhnian/Shaheeds rather than movie/music/sports stars? Also, would there be an inverse effect on those Sikhs who emigrated, i.e. without mass media would Sikhi be relatively weak in the West?
  2. With a great collapse imminent and with mainly of our cheap energy sources set to run out this century, will we go back to the good ol days and pick up the pieces or will a new source save us? Historically speaking humans have jumped back after at least a century of decline. Though with our very advanced and interconnected society, it may either be an asset or detriment to a collapse.
  3. I've been studying civilizations recently and I came across this essay by Sir Glubb. He essentially states the life cycle of the majority of world empires. To summarize, there are 6 ages.

Good old Gurmukhi names, usually one word, one meaning. These sorts of names persisted in vogue right up until the beginning of the twentieth century. But in the latter half of the very same century, a magical formula was concocted whereby a seemingly arbitrary prefix was shoved onto the beginning of a Sikh's name, and a suffix was chosen from
  5. Is the family and extended family not as strong or valued as it used to be? f I remember growing up I was very close to extended family and saw them regularly but as I have got older and with the changing times I am finding that I don't see the extended family as much. Not only that but we hardly see any of a close relatives these days either. Is this to do with the modern times in that family is not valued as much as it used to be or is it rather that as we get older we become more interested in our own immediate family/career ect then our outer network of relatives.
