Bibiya And Small Dastaar

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

I don't think tying an extremely large or fancy Dastaar will make you a better person. Some of the most Gurmukh people in the last 100 years, have tied small or 'messy' Dastaars.

Neither have I quite understood the need for people to tie excessively large Dastaars, some people tend to go on about Nihang traditions, etc, even though the current Jathedar of Buddha Dal himself has said the Dumala should not be too large, you will see many Nihangs in India have small Dumaleh. I do not see the practicality in a very large Dastaar - and I fail to understand why Bibiya in western countries would want to tie a huge Dastaar on a daily basis considering every Puratan painting or photograph showing a woman with a Dastaar, has a small one, in the traditional style as still worn in India.

It's not really about keski size, but I think it's funny how we try making our Joora smaller these days. I am a Sikh woman with a Dastar and do the same thing. Not to make my dastar smaller but to shape it. I still think it's funny that we do this though, as Puratan Sikhs clearly had high bungas (just take a look at Baba Deep Singh ji's Dumala shaster, they range from huge chakkars to tiny chakkars for the top of the bunga).

It's kind of funny how we're doing the opposite thing with our jooras now, lol. I can't blame anyone cause I do it myself but I really wish I didn't have to. Dastar power, Dastar pride.

    • Update they have not banned them Hindu have strong lobby   
    • https://www.nationalheraldindia.com/india/australian-senator-flags-issue-of-violence-by-extremist-right-wing-hindu-nationalists   They desperately want to seethe us and tarnish our reputation, so they can play 'victim' and any chance to scream 'Sikh extremism'  This is why we need to be careful, DONT SCOOP to their level and instead play by law and order and get them BANNED ! If we confront or take matter our own hands (which they want) then we lost like they did 80s 90s...need to be smart.  
    • We're drawn to honest physical labour despite being devious and calculating in our own social groups, yet if we were truly intelligent we would bypass the blue collar grafting, and want to head the various trucking unions and dependent organisations in white collar environments. In our case, every successive generation of immigrants start at the bottom instead of building on the efforts and sacrifices of the previous generations. There's a mentality of, "I suffered when I first came here, so why shouldn't they?" This creates a culture and ethic that remains firmly rooted in the same social dynamic with every generation. An intelligent community uplifts its own by creating opportunities for advancement. We seem to relish seeing our own facing adversity and having to struggle. Fundamentally, that's why we'll never achieve anything of note.
    • Politics, cricket and Bollywood is a form of escapism in India 
    • I think it comes down to the fact that most Indians are simple minded and rural. Most of them have nothing interesting going on in their lives, many living miserable wretched lives.  That's why Politics, Bollywood and Cricket are so big in that country. These three things give them a purpose in their empty rural lives, like a fantasy world. When India wins a cricket match, every Indian, including slum dwellers feel that they've just won something. Its the same with politics. I've been India during the voting season, and they go crazy as if the results of the elections are a personal family dispute. Telling the simple minded Hindu who walks to the fields to take a dump, that BJP will change India, save it from Islam and make Pakistan a part of India by 2025 and that his vote matters, gives the Hindu a purpose! it makes him feel he is a part of something. Its the same with Bollywood, it gives them a purpose, takes them away from miserable India and into a fantasy world with seductive women, flying cars, superheroes saving the damsel in distress. When Aishwarya Rai put on weight after having a baby, she was supposed to attend the Cannes film festival in southern France and Indians were saying how she's ruing India's image with her big size, letting India down on the world stage etc   It just shows you how empty these peoples lives must be!  Surely India has bigger things to worry about than an overweight middle aged actress attending a film festival in France?  But no!  Bollywood gives these people a purpose in life that's why they take it so personally. Remember whenever the Indian cricket team used lose a match, Indians used start throwing bricks through their bungalows lol ? Indians used feel that they personally lost something in life, like a deep wound. Its because they have nothing going in their miserable lives!  Its the same with politics. Its gives them a purpose, something to look forward to, they feel like they are a part of the change. Telling a Hindu that India and Hinduism is under threat and that his support matters, gives the Hindu a purpose.  That's why the Indian government will always keep its population the way it is, they are really easy to control and that's just where the government wants them to be.
