Not sure about the actual definition of a kirpan, but u can't have one on ur kanga, coz then it's not a shastar and therefore not a kirpan. It's definately not for show - what would be the point of carrying one? U gotta be able to access it.

Two??? When I wear one under my clothes I wear two 3 inch ones, and when I wear one outside I just wear a medium sized one.(And sometimes I don't take off my small ones so I end up wearing 3)My medium sized one is 9 inches with the handle. By 9 inches do u mean with the whole kirpan or just the blade?

The requirements for a kakaari kirpaan is stipulated in most amrit sanchaars, if not ask the panj when you take amrit who will clarify this for you.

To what I know your kakaari kirpaan (that you wear as your kakaar to do bhog/rakhya etc with) should be made of one piece of sarbloh (the blade and handle should not be 2 peices joined together) and practical in use e.g. the handle should be big/thick enough for a good grip.

As aforementioned, in most amrit sanchaaars the above requirements along with a minimum size e.g. 9inches (3inch handle, 6inch blade) to wear always is usually given as rehat.

Please add to this if need be Saadh Sangat Jee.

(added after) I also have heard (not sure) that your kirpaan shouldn't be sharp on both sides which makes it a khandaa type shaster, so a kataar would be invalid, thats why a kataar is called a kataar...because its not a kirpan.

    • Haven't been on tiktok for a while.  I kind of don't want to know, but what things did you see on tiktok?
    • It's because these congress and akalis promise things to certain people. I have family back in punjab and I remeber constantly trying to convince them to not vote for congress or akali but no luck, some of them you'd rather bash your head against a brick wall then try to argue with them, no use. They often promise them government jobs and stuff, in exchange for votes, otherwise the well paying government jobs are basically impossible to get, which is we have so many punjabi sikhs moving abroad, happen to a few of my second cousins. Another reason they vote for these akali and congress is because of 'connection'. A lol of people in my family have connections with them, some are related to them. So basically if you're out and you have the punjab police asking for stuff, and your missing a few papers or don't have a licence, they'll just call one of these politicians, pr pretend to, and get away without paying anything. In punjab, it's pretty difficult to get certificates, so if you ask one of the politicians, they'll make stuff 'easier'. Also, if you do illegal things, which is really common in punjab, a lot excape jail by calling one of these politicians. 
    • Krishna's method is meant to be seen as a yudh-pentra, battle tactic. Krishna is praised in the very next pangti for his victory. Kritastar Singh was splitting heads left right center. He needed a take-down in the classic Cchhalia style. Powerful adversaries require tactics to take out.
    • I know someone who had a mild stammer. They slowed down their speech and lowered their energy and volume level when speaking. Now I can't tell  they ever had a stammer. After a few years, their slow and calm method has become a habit and requires no conscious effort. I can't say if this would work for everyone, but just thought I might share a simple self help tool. Another plus, this person has become much more thoughtful and precise in what they say because of the slower pace. Everyone tends to listen to them quite attentively when in a group setting.
