punjab can't be runned by democratic way.. They need someone who can kick their butts to keep them on right path.

I think dowry and ego is the big thing behind the less ratio of girls in punjab :@ don't ya think ??

Those are number one reasons.... I guess contuining a family name, will also come into the same category ... and also some just want male cuz of the male dominating working industry in india, for poor they 'think' it would be a benefit to them... :@:)

Satpreet ji......I have a question for u.As u said:
I am totally OPPOSED to LOHRI 

Whats so wrong abt LOHRI? :T:

I think u r refering to the same festival which we guyz celebrate togther and share sweets. right?

Bhul Chuk Maff

Balwinder Singh ji:

heres how i see Lohri: its a Hindu festival/holiday/occassion. Why do Sikhs in Punjab celebrate it? Why do Sikhs out here in foreign countries go to Punjab when they have a baby boy to celebrate Lohri in Jan? I guess thats where culture messed up our ppl :umm: @ .

Whenever I hear about anyone going to Punjab from here for Lohri it is always for a baby boy, never for a girl :D . T

Hey go there and give ladoo to everyone in the pind cuz they had a boy, but never when they have a girl :( . So that pisses me off cuz I was 2nd girl born in same year as my cousin sister, and when my grandparents in Punjab got the letter they were upset cuz I was a girl and not a boy :wub: . so there was no Lohrii for me :D . When my bro was born THEN THEY DID GIVE OUT LADOOS TO EVERYONE IN OUR PIND :D

Satpreet ji ,

I take lohri in very different perspective.Personally my family never celebrate special lohri for baby boy or baby girl.For me LOHRI is great because we all go to gurudwara sahib and I feel really nice to have gr8 sangat.I really enjoy Gurudwara sahib when there are a lotta sangat.

I dont feel bad if Lohri is a hindu festival.....becuase it give me a chance to be in sangat.

I dont feel bad if Christmas is a catholic festival.....becuase it give me a chance to be in sangat.

I dont feel bad if Thanksgiving is an American festival.....becuase it give me a chance to be in sangat.

I dont feel bad if Diwali is a hindu festival.....becuase it give me a chance to be in sangat.

I dont feel bad if new year is a western festival.....becuase it give me a chance to be in sangat.


Thats what I feel is gr8 abt any day which belong to other communities but gives me a chance to have sangat.I will be very happy if I find sangat on every other day, I wont care if that day belong to any particular community.

I have many many hindu frndz...and I love sharing my festivals with them( many of umm were with me on Vaisakhi...and they enjoyed kirtan).I personally donot have any hard feelings for any religion in this world.So I wud like to celebrate every community's day with going to gurudwara and sitting in sangat.

Thats why LOHRI ....NEW YEAR....THANKSGIVING....DIWALI.....and any other festival brings a big smile on my face.

bloody kuri maars

i hate punjabis who do that. We keep saying islam is this that punjab and india is no better. They still set alight a daughter in law in the kitchen and say its an accident n grab the dehj list presents that was the classic one. Just 3 years ago a man in delhi roasted his wifes body parts in the home kitchen to avoid being detected for killing her. in the dhuaab region of punjab gangs of girl smugglers prowl out for girls kidnap them and send/sell them to other parts of the east. asia is a hellhole for women.

    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
    • There was a young Singh from abroad who went to Anandpur Sahib Hola and got into a fight with some Punjabis who were playing loud non-religious music. He had bana and a weapon or two. There were more of them than him.  He ended up losing his life. Don't be like that. Not worth it to fight manmukhs. @californiasardar1 ਮੂਰਖੈ ਨਾਲਿ ਨ ਲੁਝੀਐ ॥੧੯॥ Argue not with a fool. p473
