    • https://www.wanderlust.co.uk/content/astonishing-holiday-complaints/ 20 astonishing holiday complaints 1. "I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts." 2. "We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our swimming costumes and towels." 3. "The beach was too sandy." 4. "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all." 5. A tourist at a top African Game Lodge over looking a water hole, who spotted a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel "inadequate". 5. A tourist at a top African Game Lodge over looking a water hole, who spotted a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel "inadequate". 6. "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time - this should be banned." 7. A woman threatened to call police after claiming that she'd been locked in by staff. When in fact, she had mistaken the "do not disturb" sign on the back of the door as a warning to remain in the room. 8. "We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as yellow but it was white." 9. A guest at a Novotel in Australia complained his soup was too thick and strong. He was inadvertently slurping the gravy at the time. 10. "We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five Euros from a street trader, only to find out they were fake." 11. "Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined, as my husband spent all day looking at other women." 12. "No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled." 13. "It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It only took the Americans three hours to get home." 14. "I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends' three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller." 15. "I was bitten by a mosquito. No one said they could bite." 16. "The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the accommodation'. We're trainee hairdressers - will we be OK staying there?" 17. "There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners now live abroad." 18. "My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked." 19. "We had to queue outside with no air conditioning." 20. "It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel." These complaints are all taken from a survey from Thomas Cook and ABTA, revealing 20 of the most ridiculous complaints holidaymakers made to their travel agent
    • I disagree . Some top level athletes like boxers, swimmers, cyclists etc train hard and can expend a few thousand calories a day.  to maintain weight, they actually need to eat a lot more than an average diet  . Some people start to work out more and take more calories than they did before and can still lose weight - ‘reverse dieting’  yes, eat less and you will lose weight. But exercise is just as important or more to increase/improve metabolism. If you have higher amount of muscle mass that also improves basal metabolism  If you increase exercise, you do not need to worry as much about controlling your diet 
    • Ghokal Chand Narang writes: The founder of the Bhangi Misl, Chajja Singh, lived in a village near Amritsar. Chajja Singh took Khandey di pauhal from Banda Singh Bhadur.    Now, if Banda Singh hadn’t taken Amrit himself, how could he been in the Panj pyare, to give Amrit? Chajja Singh was a mighty warrior! There are some adulterations to this Granth. The British adulterated the Sau Sakhi, in order to break the Khalsa spirit.    The biggest bench mark that we have, is SGGS. Any historical event that does not conform to Gurbani, is contentious!
    • Tandon, that is a Khatri.  HP Khatri,  probably from Delhi.  They are very vitriolic against Sikhs.  Being Khatri, she probably has some Sikh relatives.  These types of Hindus I find have a visceral hatred of Sikhs.  
    • That's one leap in logic I'm struggling to comprehend. What are the Sikh contributions that are currently making society a fairer place? How are we any different to any other in demographic in practice as opposed to theory? Facts, please, not emotionally driven rhetoric.
