I love the videos above! Very inspiring!

Having had discussions with many Sangath and Bhaee Sahibs about why there aren't any Bibia Parcharaaks, I wish to point out the following points:

- Many Jathas feel that Bibia shouldn't do Katha or Akhand Paath Raul Seva

- Less importance and encouragement given in areas of Santhia and Ithiaas to Bibia

- More emphasis made on Keerthan

- Many feel that Bibia should focus heavily on raising Bhujhangia and the needs of the family

- Bibia are at fault due to lack of unity amongst Bibia and not enough support/backing is given to pursue such aims

- Lack of Bibia role models for upcoming generation/youth to look up to

I personally would love to see Bibia doing Parchaar but I also believe all of the above to be true and feel that there's always a valid and practical reason as to why those points were made.

Just like to ask ... Were Bibia doing Katha in Puraathan sameh? ... I assume that Bibia were raising families at that time and Singhs were held responsible for Katha/Veechaar?

Our sisters have just as much role and expectations that our brothers have and vice versa and shouldn't be stopped from doing anything within the bounds of Gurmat.

We need more Bibi parcharaks. The way I see it, a bibi can have equal love and devotion to Sikhi therefore they can and should do katha equally.

If someone says you can't do something, i wouldn't believe them, but that's just me!

The way I see the whole "taking care of kids thing", if Mai Bhago can pick up the sri sahib and fight in jung with an over 6 foot long rifle, then men can take care of women and make food for the family.

I think in old times I don't think it was odd if Singhs made food at home, cared for kids as much as the Kaurs did.

Who knows though, i'm just guessing.

Its nice to hear that Singhs want Bibia to do Parchaar and are thinking more broadly in terms of just raising a family. Just considering this from a different angle, I personally feel that a Singhanee that's Tyaar Bar Tyaar in her Rehanee, Behanee, Kehanee and Sehanee and is raising her family (the future Panth) in such a way that's filled with Prem for Sikhee is more than enough Parchaar for every Kaur and non-Kaur out there ... Just from looking at her character and the way she carries out Seva is in its own way an immensely positive way of doing Parchaar ... A sense of respect and admiration follows from looking at a Singhanee in this way and has a dramatic impact to draw others in and inspire them into adopting similar traits and GurSikh Jeevan ... Though the next stage would be to do Sangath with such Singhaneea so in a way Bibia ought to become more united and realise we're all Soul Sisters here, just look out for one another rather than backstab and do nindhia etc (which is quite common from what I've seen) ... Maharaaj Kirpa Karan that we stay united and support each other in order to inspire the future Panth and engage in doing positive Parchaar ...

Another point thats interesting is that Singhs do know how to look after themselves i.e. cooking, cleaning, raising family. If you go to a Nihang Dal in Panjaab, the Singhs would all make Langar Parshaada together and clean the place as well as looking after the Bhujangia ... It's amazing to see such sights and really acts as inspiration for all those lazy Panjaabi lads in the West that make the lady to make them something as simple as a cup of tea haha!
