Contribution Required For The Huge Sevaa Of Outdoor Screen Project At Sree Darbaar Saaheb


Recommended Posts

Very bad idea and if it does goes ahead , give it a few years and the management in darbar sahib will probably start using it to advertise birthdays like all the other Sikh media around the world to raise revenue . Take your project and place it where there is no parchar of gurbani, or maybe the organisers just want there picture in the press.

I thank the Toronto Sangat for their efforts in this idea. While I think the motives are great, I think some more thoughts and input form the sangat should be there before doing anything. This is not

Firstly, they look terrible. The place has been damaged enough already through shoddy construction work. Secondly, the last thing the committee there needs is funds. The place is rolling in money.

Amritsar is the holiest place on earth, not Times Square or a scientology temple. If we wanted amritsar looking like an apple store thats what it would look like. The focus is on the Guru not bill gat

SIKH_TORONTO where are you since you have posted for money you have'nt had the courtesy to come back and answer the sangats concerns?

MKHALSAORIGINAL your designs 100% shows that the screens are a Disneyland distraction like being at a football match all we need now is the Indian-Punjab Government to sponsor political banners on it!

I for one am 100% against this idea and oppose it.

MkhalsaTo, as many members stated including Gurmustak Singh that the intentions of the sewadars of this project are very noble but needs a bit modifications on the location of the screen. It seems that the sewadars did all job done by going to tradeshows, inquiring all about the product and its installations etc. However they missed one big part which is to consult someone who protects fragile historical structures. Kar Sewa Babay in punjab nor SGPC understand the the importance of consulting environmentalist/heritage protectors. BUT organizers are from the west, and we all know the importance of taking advice from experts as mentioned in my earlier replies. If SGPC agreed to put historical gurdwara sahibs under UNESCO then their plan to install huge lcd's anywhere in the complex (outer or inner) would have been thwarted in the very first meeting. Maybe organizer knew that they will get a BIG NO from experts and decided to bypass this important step. Look at the structures in Israel and they are preserved the same way as it was thousands of years ago.. Taj Mahal could have done easily with huge screen installation without any problem in fund raising (they charge 700rs/entry) but they would never do such stuff as they are under UNESCO protection..

Change the location, resize the screen (if needed) and put it up anywhere outside of the complex (manji hall, bagh, rest houses etc...) Also, sttm has many countless errors and not good enough to put it up @ Sri Harmander sahib. If no compromise in locations then consider other options; Hire Sikh youth in punjab, train them to be a good tour guide and put a big stall for visitors to pick a tour guide free of charge. This way it will help unemployed proper singh or singhnia of punjab.

Your project is nice and you don't have to donate $ to any organization but instead carry on such techie related stuff but with respect to architecture structure. Take a look @ Sikh Museum @ sri harmander sahib complex (huge part for visitors) and consider to renovate the whole museum floor to world class level. But again dealing with such stuff, talk/consult with a specialist and then take advice from sangat around the globe BEFORE finalizing the whole project on its own.Organizers need to take step out of their comfort zone.

Translations and Gurbani media do help people take the first steps in Sikhee like learning Gurbani, improve pronunciation, learning vocabulary. After that stage they become a hindrence.

All the current Gurbani media have tonnes of errors and as for the translations.. Gurbani is a lot deeper than that..

Sri Darbar Sahib isnt a football stadium - this should be referred to those who know about Heritage Conservation as too much damage is being done to our historical sites in india as it is.

as for the SGPC dont even get me started..

So when I posted on the other thread, I had no idea how big the screen was going to be. I agree this huge screen will be a distraction and as someone else had mentioned, the people that will watch the screen will have their backs to Darbar Sahib. I was expecting much smaller screens to be around the Parikarma. I can't believe SGPC is allowing this!

So the Toronto folks are adamant about installing these screens.

Benti to Toronto Sikhs - before installing the LED screens, please please please inform the global Sangat, so everyone at least knows about this project.

I found out thanks to SikhSangat - but not everyone (barely anyone) checks out online discussion forums.

And, secondly, obtain approval from the global Sangat (and Guru Ji as someone suggested). Harmandir Sahib belongs to every Sikh (not a few Sikhs who feel that having LED screens that display Gurbani/Kirtan are absolutely necessary and they must be installed no matter what).

If these screens create chaos & divide within the panth (as they are doing online)...what is the point of installing them?

Waheguroo jee ka khalsa waheguroo jee kee fateh!

I know some of the main sevadars on this project and I endorse it 100%. It seems to me that it would be a great boon in educating the masses and teaching them about gurmat and why they are at darbar sahib in the first place. First and foremost it will be good for the local population, secondly for visitors and thirdly for non-"sikhs" who are only there as tourists.

Imagine if it was there during the upcoming Obama visit.

These screens have been in the works for over 2 years. Engineers and designers have worked on the designs, and the SGPC has gone through an approval process. All that remains is the funding to install it. The sevadars have flown all over the place to trade shows and done much research in finding the most effective screens.

These screens are NOT jumbotrons, video screens or ad billboards. At darbar sahib they will ONLY be used to display SikhiToTheMax or equivalent of the shabad currently being sung.

By the logic of some here, perhaps they should remove the loudspeakers as they are a distraction while on the parkarma.. the noise and all...

These sevadars do NOT want to big up there name. They are the same sevadars that have installed STTM screens at every gurudwara in GTA, whether they wanted it or not. This has resulted in massive parchar and benefit for the sangat. The sevadar I spoke to told me how the basic understanding led him into being strong in Sikhi and then wanting to get santhiya etc.

Think about all of the Sikhs who do not know much about Sikhi and how much they will learn from this. Why do we have to attack everything good that others do? While doing nothing good ourselves?

Wow what a response to genuine concerns by people raised on this forum.

In response to the above points,

I would venture that most people do not go to Darbar Sahib to learn about Sikhi (in the way that most of us understand learning as), they go their to EXPERIENCE sikhi. The gurbani, the kirtan, the darshan of maharajh, the seva etc. The learning comes through the experience and participation, not through staring at some gigantic screen.

You say first and foremost that it would benefit the local population. Please could you explain how?! How does installing 4 gigantic screens translating gurbani into english and other 'foreign' languages help the local sangat? The visitors and tourists are the people that these screens are aimed at. Because they have been useful in the west, we assume that they are needed and would be as useful everywhere else. And we all know what assumptions make ...

As one of the other posters said, who cares about Obama?! Do we really think that he cares/would care (even if he was going!). These visits by big names, politicians, actors, etc its all done for publicity and to win favour.

Please could you detail what approval process has the SGPC undertaken? If they actually have then it must have been the first time in at least the last few decades! Unfortunetly, I dont believe that a process was undertaken, more likely that the idea (and the fact that it would be self funded and that apparently all the western sikhs would love the sgpc for doing this) was introduced to one guy who then spoke to another guy, who then signed it off. With the rest of the guys not giving a hoot about what was happening, as long as their positions were safe.

If sevadars have done 2 years of work for this, then well done. Unfortunetly, just becuase we put in effort, doesnt mean that we have to go with it. Sevadars should also have the humility to accept that if sangat is unhappy with the decision, that they shelve the idea of adjust it/discuss other options.

I think the fact that you think the screens would not be used for other purposes shows a level of naievity. For example, at our local gurdwara we use the screens to congratulate people on vaisakhi and have rolling slide shows etc on gurpurbs to educate people. Im pretty sure that the same/similar would happen there, that on vaisakhi, you would have HUGE happy vaisakhi coming out of the screens. And knowing how punjab works, this happy vaisakhi sign would be endorsed by Mr Badal and family with their pictures along the bottom. There is nothing that anyone has that can guarantee that these screens will not be used in other ways.

The loudspeaker example is silly and takes away from the topic at hand.

The fact that you say that these sevadars installed these other screens in places, 'whether they wanted them or not' shows a degree of stubborness. Although the result may have been good, again it doesnt automatically mean that the same is needed at Darbar Sahib!! You say that the screens influenced one person, I would say that they have probably helped a lot of people, BUT I would 100% believe that doing darshan of Sri Harimandir Sahib, sitting on the parkarma, listening, cleaning the batteh, washing the parkarima, just standing there... WITHOUT HAVING TRANSLATIONS will have gotten A LOT more people into Sikhi.

You say that Sikhs will learn from this .. which Sikhs? Are we talking about ourselves again, when we go as visitors for 30 mins, or maybe even stay a few days? Is all this being done for our benefit?!

Also your comment " Why do we have to attack everything good that others do? While doing nothing good ourselves?" is very interesting. To start with, we here are speaking against something which WE view as bad and not good. It is called having a disagreement, and we are having a discussion, which is something the sevadars probably should have had with the wider sangat before doing what the SGPC does all the time, do what it likes, when it likes. Secondly you ASSUME that those who are against this idea, DO NOTHING GOOD THEMSELVES?! Maybe you might want to take a step of that high horse my brother. For all we know the people who are against this do fantastic seva, some gupt, some openly, some may help one or two people, others may help thousands, lets not jump to that tragic conclusion that just because someone is against our fantastic idea, that they must be going agianst 'good' and that they are lazy good for nothings that sit around doing nothing but complaining!!

Your later comments about how the heritage there has already been changed may be correct, but it doesnt mean that we go on loosing more and more. We have to draw a line somewhere. You say that these objections are unfounded, yet there is nothing to support your view that these screens are a good idea. All we have seen is a request for cash! Please can you provide some evidence of appropriate thought processes, analysis, discussion, heritage and conservation considerations, health and safety concerns, project plans, etc etc etc.

Has anyone heard any feedback from the Canadian guys? Are they aware that smaller/more discreet screens are already placed around the parkarima? (according to the report put up by a singh in this thread?)

Ps has anybody ever been using STTM or other versions and ... perhaps you cant find the shabad ... or the programme has frozen ... or an internal bug messes up the font ... or had one of a number of other random problems? Anybody struggled to keep up with kirtanis that use lines from different shabads as parmaan's to the main shabad resulting in finding the new shabad on STTM by the time kirtani has finished and returned to the main shabad ... im trying to imagine the fun this would cause on giant screens around the parkarima. :(

I agree with you about VIPs.

English has become the defacto second language for everyone on Earth to trade with. It is taught worldwide. The plan is to have 3 languages though.

Regarding your strange view of "history"... The marble on the parkarma is brand new becuase the SGPC wanted to erase all history of the "militants"

The walls of the buildings? NEW. The paint is white wash over actual historical art.

The gold was added against the wishes of the panth.

The Bungas were destroyed and replaced with high walls. Darbar sahib was actually supposed to be open to all.. the 4 doors thing is NEW..

And lastly, history gets made somehow.. in 50 years, these screens will be called historical value to the complex. Its what you make it. I for one am very inspired by this.

You cannot be serious! Do you realise you sound insane?!!!

Screens adding historical value LOL, and you just added reasons they shouldn't be installed. Nothing as major as this should happen without the backing of the panth, knowing all of the things not approved by the panth you seem willing to add another thing to the list.

You really have a nerve coming on here backing a project you know the majority of the panth will oppose, your feeble attempts at backing this completely outrageous project will not stand against the panth.

You obviously do not believe in democracy or true worship, if you did you would not want to ruin the sacredness and peace of the holiest place on earth and that makes two of you, Indira Gandhi and yourself.

Has anybody been in touch with the 3 Sikh channels? especially Sikh channel maybe they could have a debate about it to highlight to the general sangat what a disgusting proposal this is.

The Akal Takhat needs to be informed of the disapproval of the sangat worldwide. We need to mobilise and do is fast before this insane project gets off the ground.

We need to make our voice heard. :o

Puting aside the fact that this is a ridiculous idea, who are this organisation - Gursewa Charitable Society?

Are people based in the Greater Toronto area familiar with its work?

The addresses given are residential properties. Could it just be a scam??

    • All 10 Guru Sahibaan had same Akaali jyot. Guru Gobind Singh ji strictly prohibited topi and our rehitnamas also say that wearing topi is a huge mistake and can take a person to hell. Guru Nanak Dev ji always wore dastaar.
    • The line from Sri chand ji's matra bani is: Torra choorra aur janjir, Lai pehre Nanak Shah faqir. Hindi translation: Sri chand ji is saying to yogis and sanyasis to give up your outer symbols(choorra, janjir etc) and wear the robes of Guru Nanak Dev ji. These robes are the robes of a king.
    • I've been reading this blog lately. I find it really interesting, partially because it appears that the writer grew up in the same generation as me in the U.K., but also because of the broad, (very pertinent!) discussion taking place. I read a book of selected translations of bani by the author (as well as Christopher Shackle) many years ago, which I thought was refreshing. The way the author (in the blog) juxtapositions and compares experiences of racism in the US (where he now resides and works as a teacher), and deep rooted inequalities in India makes it a compelling read.  Check it out. https://www.arvindpalmandair.com/blog-post/   Here's a taste: Dialogues Between Arvind Mandair and Stan Kowalinski Arvind Mandair (ASM):  Since the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police on May 25th 2020, people from different walks of life and different cultural backgrounds throughout America have engaged in overwhelmingly peaceful protests that have in turn inspired similar protests throughout the world.  A major portion of the country has at last started to grapple with the fact that any attempt to overcome systemic racism will require a transformation of some core structures, systems and self-image that American society has of itself.  In a series of posts I want to reflect on the gravity of this current moment and what it might hold for the future. I’ve decided to title this series “Exorcising Racism” for reasons that will become clear later in this post and in forthcoming posts. However, unlike my opening posts on teaching about race and religion, these reflections will take the form of a series of conversations with Stan Kowalinski. By way of introduction Stan attended my AS334 class in Fall 2019 on Race, Religion & Caste in India and the United States. Stan is a US Navy veteran whose work experience also includes interaction with the police. Stan and I have kept in email contact since the class finished. At the time neither of us had any inkling that some of the issues we talked about in that class would erupt so suddenly and so tragically in the late spring of 2020 with the modern day lynching of George Floyd, an unarmed black man whose life was brutally choked out of his body by officer Derek Chauvin of the Minneapolis police. The conversations in the next few posts are a continuation of the after-class dialogues that Stan and I engaged in Fall 2019. Stan has since graduated as a Sociology Major from the University of Michigan (class of 2020).     Stanston Kowalinski (SK): Hello Arvind! First, I want to say that it is good to speak with you again and I’m delighted to be able to engage with you about these events. While taking AS334 I was intrigued by your method of teaching the class about race in the U.S. and abroad, especially the comparisons you drew to social caste in India, religion and philosophy in forming and shaping the ways we see and experience race and racism today. Taking our very different cultural identities and backgrounds into consideration, I appreciate being able to speak with you about the lynching of George Floyd and the other victims of police brutality and violence, as well as the recent response of communities and cities mobilizing against police brutality, white supremacy and systemic racism in the U.S. and many other countries around the world. With the myriad events taking place in the wake of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arberry, and the topics of race, white supremacy and violence, it’s difficult to pick a starting point. Although racism and extrajudicial killings have happened well before these three victims, it may be important to start with George Floyd’s death and the subsequent movement that followed since it re-catalyzed our discussion. What sort of thoughts have you had in regards to George Floyd’s death, and the overwhelming response of the Black Lives Matter and anti-racism movements that we are seeing today? Also, I want to ask if you’ve drawn any meaningful connections you’ve made between your work in studying and teaching on race, caste and religion, and your experience living in the UK and the U.S. with these events.    ASM: My immediate reaction right after I heard about Floyd’s death, before I had even watched the video, was a sickening feeling of helplessness, that it would become just another statistic; that there would be a flurry of protests, but these would fade away and we’d be waiting for the next one. My feeling was that people had become numbed into just accepting this as part of the status quo, that this would register as yet another case of systemic violence, but the system would just go on as normal. And the Alt-Right propaganda machine managed to blunt the initial impact of the Black Lives Matter movement prior to 2019.  After all we’d seen several choke-hold deaths in police custody in previous years, notably the killing of Eric Garner in 2014.  But something was clearly different this time. Was it the nature of the video of George Floyd’s death, its availability to the general public in such a short space of time? Was it the effect of the people being locked down for several months during the pandemic? Did it have something to do with Trump—the fact that he had been actively sowing the seeds of division, and fanning hatred in the lead up to Floyd’s death with his attacks on Asian Americans? Was it the arrogant look on Derek Chauvin’s face as he choked George Floyd for 9 agonizing minutes (“I can do this because I can and because I’m allowed to! I dare you to stop me!”)? Perhaps all of these things mixed together to produce something quite incendiary as it hit a real nerve bringing different sectors of American society together in a way that hadn’t been the case for decades. In the weeks following the death my initial feeling of helplessness turned to hope at the sight of so many peaceful anti-racism protests led by the BLM movement around the country. There were instances of rioting that marred the impact of the popular uprisings and there were tense confrontations between police in riot gear and protestors as the following images from some of the Detroit protests show. Some of the tensest stand-offs happened right below the GM building and in front of the Renaissance Apartments Complex (where, incidentally, my son was living).   However, this time round BLM’s messaging was so much better and more effective. Like many other people I was also genuinely surprised (but elated) at the response of mainstream corporations large and small which came out publicly against racism in America. The statement made by the ice-cream company Ben and Jerry’s is a good example: Other examples that turned the tide in favor of the anti-racism protests this time round include the reversal by major sports organizations such as the NFL the US Soccer League to allow players to ‘take a knee’ in protest against racial injustice; a gesture that was inspired the San Francisco-49’ers quarterback Colin Kapernick and much derided by Trump who encouraged/bullied people and organizers to ignore Kapernick effectively making him and BLM a pariah movement. In short, I think all of these movements have coalesced into a growing self-examination of American values (such as “freedom” – freedom for whom?), the American self-image (the land of the free and the brave, the very idea of the American dream). Basically, people are again asking what is the basic idea behind America? If America itself was born on the rotten foundation of genocidal violence and enslavement of non-white races, how can we make a new and better foundation? Stan, you also asked me about possible connections between the present moment of racial unrest and my research, teaching and experience of living in the UK? It would take me too long to unpack all of these connections—perhaps I can talk about it in the next few posts—but I will nevertheless make a few pointers. As I noted in my earlier post Visceral Memories of Racism, I grew up and went to school in the UK in the 1970s and early 1980s, an era of widespread racism and violence against immigrants. By the 1990s the UK appeared to have embraced a multicultural ethos and things were looking upbeat. I left the UK in 2001 thinking I was leaving behind memories of European racism and coming to a USA that also seemed to be forward looking and progressive. But 9/11 put an end to that dream. As Islamophobia swept the country in the years following the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, all the gains made since the 1990s were thrown out of the window as violence against visible minorities became normalized and the demons of American racism were once again awakened by political operatives who appeared to have hijacked the Republican Party pushing it more and more towards the extreme right. Note that I use the term ‘demon’ here. What I’m suggesting here is that racism has a spectral quality to it, but is also an evil that needs to be removed from the minds of individuals afflicted by it, as well as the body politic. In other words it has an intrinsic connection to religion which we can explore in the next post.  So for me the last two decades, but especially the George Floyd moment, if we can call it that, was like reliving the 1970s and early 80s in the UK. It was the same nightmare but a different decade, different continent. And as I mentioned in the Patterns of Prejudice post,  my AS334 course was a way for me to come to terms with the nightmare by sharing it with others. But what about you, Stan? Can you talk about how the current uprisings affect you, your family and broader community?    SK: Thanks for asking Arvind. Personally I’ve also experienced a range of emotions and thoughts, ranginging from rage to sadness, hope to defeat. I have to state that the emotions and thoughts I have pale in comparison to the African American communities and other persons of color who are constantly impacted by the violence of racism. I found George Floyd’s death to be especially egregious, particularly when I look at it from my background in the military, my experiences interacting with police and my previous work in bar security, where I’ve had to use physical force dozens of times to separate violent patrons. I’ve witnessed open racism in front of me, while in the military as well as interacting with police—as if I was okay with it due to being white and my position. This caused a lot of frustration for me over what should be considered human decency. Entering and serving in the military, you are enculturated into an idealism that this country is not only just but also worth fighting and dying for. However, you are simultaneously encultured into an institution that functions off of colorblind racism and utilizes an insidious form of labeling ethnic groups in pejorative racialized terms—methods that seem to only make conditions worse when you’re deployed to regions to interact with these people. When you peel back the layers of this belief system and shine a light on the contradictions and inequalities facing any person or group because of their race, income or identity, it becomes extremely visceral and compelling to either work towards changing it or jettison the construct entirely and start over.   One particular frustration I have been having lately was the inability of several people within my social network, particularly white people, failing to connect how George Floyd’s death was not an isolated incident of one malicious or negligent police officer, but another example of the myriad ways in which violence is enmeshed with racism in our society. Prior to these events, I just completed my undergraduate thesis on Flint, where I connected themes of structural racism in Flint’s water restoration and relief efforts, work which landed me an award at Racism Lab’s Martin Luther King Jr. symposium at U-M’s Institute for Social Research this past February. It was difficult wrestling with the idea that several of the same people who liked my posts and content of this event and award online, who responded with love and praise for this achievement, then became fervently reactionary over the recent protests on my timeline. This left me feeling discouraged in my ability to connect with some of my relatives and former friends, that they will never break out of the belief system they internalize. That being said, outside of those who are still too ideologically intertwined with the problematic processes of this society, the size and breadth of the response to George Floyd’s murder, as well as Amaud Arberry, Breonna Taylor, and others has left me feeling hopeful for a future I doubted was possible during my lifetime. I’ve noticed many people who were previously non-vocal on social or political issues, suddenly becoming very active online and in their communities. Also amazing to see was the level of support work and logistics being conducted for protests as well in many communities including Toledo and Washtenaw County. As I write this at the end of June 2020, the threat of COVID-19 is still very real, and its unequal impact on low-income communities and communities of color is something not forgotten in these communities. Protesting then becomes not only a double-danger but a necessity to combat these effects. Seeing residents in cities of all races, religions, and backgrounds come together to mobilize against racism in the U.S. and abroad has reinforced thoughts and feelings that real change can be made, while also showing that the past and current m.o. of systemic inequality and racism in society and politics needs to be dismantled and society needs to be restructured with equity and empathy. I also agree with you that there are still many challenges facing this movement, several of which I look forward to engaging with you over the next several posts. One obstacle in particular is the response of police and city officials to the protests around the country. My own city of Toledo was recently published in a New York Times article of one of over one hundred other cities where police responded to protests with tear gas, rubber bullets, pepper spray and another crowd dispersal weapon called “knee-knockers” which I can explain more about later.   Witnessing the way police and politicians, especially Donald Trump have escalated tensions through reckless use of force against protesters and media workers, ignoring accountability for this escalation, and belligerently labeling Antifa as a terrorist group while ignoring the very real far-right boogaloo movement which has enacted violence and death, was deeply disturbing and highlights many of the topics we discussed in your course, particularly the rise of a distinct form of fascism in the U.S. and India. As I end my contribution to this post, I want to conclude by saying that I see this blog series as helpful in making me feel present and engaged in this moment we’re in and contributing in whatever way I can. Is there a particular topic or theme you look forward to discussing more in this series?    ASM: Thanks for sharing this Stan. As I’ve mentioned in class conversations I found your take on this situation to be fascinating and helpful given that you’re a veteran, albeit a very young one, a sociology major and have real experience of working with the police. In the next couple of posts perhaps we can talk more about the nature of systemic racism and how to overcome it. If the current uprisings and protests do indeed target institutional racism, and if overcoming racism requires a transformation of certain key systems and structures central to which is a narrative of America’s self-image, then perhaps what any anti-racism effort really needs to get to grips with are the very building blocks or cornerstones of racism, namely the idea of white supremacy and (this may surprise many people) the framework of thought that was supposed to combat and eradicate white supremacy, but in fact continues to sustain and nourish it: the ideology of liberalism. 
    • Anantanand of sangalwala dera did a huge sin of changing the bani of Sri chand ji. He changed the words 'Nanak Shah faqir' with 'sadhu udasi dheer'. Basically he dint like the word 'nanak'. Good sikh minded udasis call anantanand a dusht soul.
