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

    • Not just North Punjabi/Mirpuri Pakistani types in the UK, presumably the below article refers mainly to white males   Samaritans volunteers met vulnerable callers for sex https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-58057031 By Jennifer Meierhans BBC News Published 50 minutes ago Share IMAGE SOURCEGETTY IMAGES Samaritans says it has introduced new safeguarding measures after volunteers met vulnerable callers for sex. The charity, which offers a helpline to people in distress, will reportedly monitor calls in future to prevent inappropriate relationships. The Telegraph found incidents of middle-aged men using their position to meet up with female callers for sex. The charity told the BBC it did not dispute that a "very small number of safeguarding incidents" had occurred. Samaritans chief executive Julie Bentley said the "extremely rare" incidents had been identified and that swift and appropriate action had been taken. According to the Telegraph, a memo to volunteers said 44 serious incidents had occurred since 2017. Ms Bentley said Samaritans' 20,000 volunteers provided vital emotional support to anyone who is struggling, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Volunteers on the charity's telephone service have answered more than 13 million calls in the four years from January 2017, she said. 'Robust investigation' "Running any national service on this scale means that, on extremely rare occasions, high standards are not always met and from the millions of calls answered, a very small number of safeguarding incidents were identified," said Ms Bentley. "Our robust investigation procedures meant these incidents were handled swiftly and appropriate action taken. "Any safeguarding matter is one too many and as such we review our practices on an ongoing basis and have introduced further measures as part of our commitment to delivering a consistently high-quality experience for our callers." Incidents are investigated by the charity's Serious Safeguarding Panel and are reported to the Charity Commission, Samaritans said.
    • I think this type of attitude helps keep Panjab economically backwards.  
    • This history seems true. It's not a new discovery, and this Zorowar Singh palit has a history and legacy in Bassi Pathaan that people there still acknowledge.  Info has been out about Zorowar Singh Palit since the late 60s at least, when Ganda Singh put out Sri Gursobha. That people here haven't heard of him here says more about their own piss poor study of history than anything else.  Plus this figure being from a tarkhan background would have motivated the usual jut casteists to jealously try and bury his memory, so that probably played a big part in his occlusion and hence so much ignorance about him. I'm not too familiar with Uhdoke, what makes you say the above about him?
