We were instructed by Guru Gobind Singh Ji to only use Singh and Kaur. Yet about 70% of Sikhs still use their family names. As someone who has always had Singh in my name I find it odd that people still cling onto their family name like some kind of badge of honour and false pride. Wherever I go people instantly know what faith I am by my surname and even respect me more when they see my surname as SINGH they know I have ditched any kind of castists backward name. That is the response I have got from many non sikhs. Who admire that name. Which is probably the best and well known name there is in India and abroad. Not some silly name like channa or bedi ect. Yet people still love to flaunt their caste names on twitter and facebook. Singh and Kaur is meant to create unity in the panth. Yet people would rather have some silly names that dont mean jack. Why do people have no pride in Singh or Kaur? having your silly pendu name just creates division.
