Kirtaniya From Manchester Smagam

Gurfathe ji

WE have choosen not to "advertise " whcih international keertanis will be attending. Guru jis darbar is not a stage show. everybody is aware that when a big nam eis advertised the sangats flock to the program and once the keertani finishes their slot half the sangat gets up and walks out, that is not what the essense of a rehanbhai should be. Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir singh and other Gursikhs woudl do rehansbhais that where 60 hrs long without anyone getting up. We all strive for success in our spiritual journey, but this can only be acheived by understanding what true love really is. If we truly love Guru ji then each word that si sung shoudl peirce our hearts and it shouldn't matter wether its "MAnpreet singh " or just a novice keertani our focus is the shabad not the funky tune

SO I welcome all the sangat no matter what differences you might have lets come together and lets singh Gurujis prasies :wubc: :wubc:

Good post Tarunjeet Singh Jee, though it is a fine line - in the initial stages of spiritual journey a good Keertani (and his tunes!) can help one concentrate on the Shabad. It is only with blessings and apaar kirpa of Guroo Sahib Jee that one becomes solely attuned to the Shabad, regardless of the Keertani or the Paathi. Though the issue you raise is a valid one, as the Darbar hall really did empty once certain Keertanis finished at the Manchester and Slough Smaagams!

agreed. the real reason too why manchester is always rammed out is because well known keeranis are always doing the keertan.

now if you where at manchester rainsbhai for when manpreet singh came, who saw how many people got up after he finished? like half of darbaar sahib lolll

anyway, everyone try and come to smagam and get as much laha as you can

True, but I guess thats a loss for them then ..

I believe Bibi Harjeet Kaur did kirtan seva right after manpreet singh jee.

Shes a great gursikh with a lot of gyaan, and been around in jatha for a looong time now.

Listening to her do kirtan seva is a blessing !

But mainstream AKJ smagams also do the same, whenever the main kirtanea leaves the sangat goes, i think the issue is that manchester smagams rock and akj dont like it as they get akj kirtanees BUT akj dont organise it.

I think thats why tarunjeet wrote the article, other akj smagams do the same. Its a well known fact.

end of the day gurbani is gurbani no matter who sings his praises. so dont jus attend these smagams because a certain famous keertan is attending, attend it to listen to the words of the Guru regardless of whos singing and get the pura laha of it.

i have to agree with majority of posts above. kirtan has become a professional job in most jathas now. some people say its fine because these famous kirtanis bring people to programmes, well if these kirtanis are hyped up soo much and this practise continues then only guru sahib knows what the condition of the panth will be in 5years time. give prime time to youth and the pros can wait for their turn lol.

we should do ardas that kirtan is done like it was done in the olden times like in bhai randhir singhs times. reading such accounts is sooo inspiring, it makes your heart cry out for such kirtan.

though it is inspiring to see some people trying to keep kirtan nirbaan and pure within jathas and the panth as a whole.

fateh

    • Paedophile doctor, 28, who groomed '13-year-old girl' on Kik using the username 'olderc**k' walks free from court after his lawyer blamed his actions on working long hours during the pandemic James Peter Farthing, 28, spoke to the 'teenager' on messaging service Kik He asked to see pictures of her and sent the account a picture of his <banned word filter activated> But the NHS doctor was actually speaking to an undercover police officer He admitted attempting to groom a child and was given a suspended sentence  A doctor who attempted to groom a '13-year-old girl' online has been spared prison after his lawyers blamed his actions on working long hours during the Covid pandemic. James Peter Farthing, 28, spoke to the 'teenager' on messaging service Kik - under the username 'olderc**k' - as well as on Snapchat. The junior doctor, who worked for the NHS in Stockport, asked to see photographs of her body and shared an image of <banned word filter activated>. The account was actually being run by an undercover police officer and Farthing was later arrested for attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child. However, today he walked free from Minshull Street Crown Court after being handed a suspended sentence. Lawyers mitigating for Farthing, said he had been juggling working long hours during the pandemic, his wife's health condition and his training.  They said he had 'emotional struggles', had been watching pornography and smoking cannabis at the time - but that he was working to address his issues. Her Honour Judge Tina Landale sentenced him to six months in prison, suspended for two years, after he admitted attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child. He was handed concurrent sentences for attempting to involve a child aged 13 or over in non-penetrative sexual activity; and attempting to engage with a child aged 13 to 15 to watch and look at images of a sexual nature. The court heard Farthing spoke to the 'girl' on Kik - under the username 'olderc**k', Fiona Clancy, prosecuting said. He also spoke to her on Snapchat, in March. He said he was 23 and from Leeds. The 'girl' was called 'Beth' and was said to have been from Liverpool. The cop used a picture of kittens to portray how young she was, Ms Clancy said. Farthing asked 'Beth' if she was into 'older guys' and if she would send him a picture. 'Beth' told him: 'I'm 13, by the way.' Farthing replied: 'Cool. Are you down for role play or sex?' He asked to see her body and offered to show her his <banned word filter activated>. The 'girl' said she was worried about sending a photograph. Farthing reassured her that if she didn't include her face, it 'should be fine'. 'The fact that the undercover officer was 13 was reiterated, but the sexual conversations continued,' Ms Clancy said, as the conversations moved to Snapchat. Farthing told 'Beth': 'I have spoken to a few girls that like older men.' The officer then sent a picture of a young, clothed girl.  Farthing sent a photograph of his <banned word filter activated>. 'I really want to touch your body and see what you look like naked,' he said. He then sent another picture of his <banned word filter activated>. Ms Clancy said that when officers arrested Farthing, he said he was 'ashamed' and 'tried to stop', but 'gave in to sexual pleasure', the court heard. Simon Gurney, defending, said Farthing, who has no previous convictions, was 'deeply ashamed and remorseful for his behaviour'.   His supervisor - a consultant - and training programme director provided statements to the court. Staff and patients 'all expressed shock' after Farthing was arrested, the court heard, as people thought he had a good 'moral compass'.  Mr Gurney said they 'stand by him' because they acknowledge his remorse. The lawyer said it was the first time in Farthing's career that he didn't enjoy his work - and that his family was in debt as a result of the pandemic.  Mr Gurney said Farthing 'only has himself to blame for jeopardising' his career.  Judge Landale said the 'girl' made it 'clear that she didn't want to talk about sex'.  Farthing was ordered to take part in the Horizon project; to complete 20 rehabilitation activity requirement days; and to undertake 200 hours of unpaid work. He was also made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order - to last a decade.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9995087/NHS-junior-doctor-28-groomed-13-year-old-girl-Kik-spared-prison.html  
    • Plus who said I was some 'admitted expert' about the dumbing down? There's no two ways about it, everything is dumbed down for pendus. Who can't see that? The only people who can't see it, are the dumb themselves. 
    • Who do you think is the dog's bollocks then? Go on, give us a laugh.  To be honest, they are pretty much all insufferable to me, that's why I prefer reading. This guy just smashed it with his santhiya readings, I can't count how many other people have also learnt to read Gurbani from his recitals. That's got to be acknowledged. I did see him a few times at Goodmayes Gurdwara and he was better than most I've ever heard (which ain't many). I mean I stayed till the end for the first time. lol Moms used to watch Maskeen a lot, but as a young energetic person, I always found his style a bit boring and couldn't engage. Plus you know all these guys like to add their things in. And you should know by now, given the opportunity, I prefer trying to decipher the original puratan texts when I'm able to.  It's like shastarsingh said on another thread, You can pick up important information within two minutes in a book that you have to listen to two hours katha for....  Katha not my thing, so I'm no expert about it. But seeing as it's mainly done for rurals, I don't have high expectations anyway. At least they aren't bhangra paa-ing like fudhoos I guess? Not until later in the evening anyway.  PS - I think maybe because he is of a considerable girth, his vocal delivery is clear. Some others I have heard sound like they are mumbling somewhat which is off putting.  
    • You've got to be joking me, bro. This Singh is a top kathavachak for you? You, the admitted expert about the gradual dumbing down of Sikhi to appeal to the lowest common denominator, defending this religious gentleman? I hope you're trolling me.
    • Plz listen at 9:00 sec Some people using kisan andolan to fool nri Sikhs.
