I don't use those words myself. I prefer to speak to indviduals and have individuals speak to me on a first name basis. Otherwise, I feel I'm not really connecting with them on a personal level.

In the olden days it was mother, father, then mummy, daddy, then mum and dad. Likewise language is always changing.

Veer actually means warrior. In the olden days girls would call their brothers warriors ie veerji.....then people started calling brothers bhai ji....and from BHAI JI people shortened it to PAJI. Likewise people shortened the word BHEN JI to PENJI for girls.

Personally I prefer to say Veer Ji rather than Paji since the word Veer has heritage and a deeper meaning. But each to their own. :)

I say Paaji though I like Veer Ji as it sounds wicked lol. I called one Paaji, 'Veer Ji' and he didn't like it, apparently it makes him sound old lol :lol: Though I've noticed alot of brothers get shy when they're called Veer Ji!

singhs shouldnt get shy when called veerjee. they ARE our brothers lol paaji sounds like it just started for a 'fashion' thing in this modern world. In my opinion everyone should say veerji thats how it was in the older times. We try to follow so many things from the olden times, then y not this. i know its small thing but lets try to keep it the way it was please

lol cute!

i am used to saying paji/bhaji

its funny...when i see an amritdhari (unless i have known them before ) i use veer/veer ji. it depends on how close i am to them and if they prefer to be called by their name or "veerji"...

(havent we talked about this before?)

nyhow i grew up calling my elder brothers paji thn veer ji so i jus used that for them

umm something funny though:
