Any English/Hindi Kathas I Can Listen To?


Recommended Posts

So I am not fluent in Punjabi and I dont understand it that well, so to actually know more about sikhism I guess I need to listen to kathas, do you guys know of any great kathas I can listen to in Hindi or English?

Thank you,

By the way, may i ask how you know Hindi and not Punjabi?, curious as it must be easier to understand and learn Punjabi/Gurmukhi if you know hindi. I heard from people the best way to learn about Sikhi is to read Gurbani for yourself. There are some nice translations in the Gurbani section done by DalSingh/PJS and other Sikhs there. Check that out too..

Hindi is a dirty/rubbish language and a copy of urdu (which was brought over by turks and is a language which has stolen most of its vocabulary from old old rubbish panjabi from lahore). This is why many of Guru Nanaks quotes have unfortunatly (in my opinion) words like "aap/hum/kabhi" etc instead of the beautiful present day "Tussi/Tusaan/Assi/Assan/Kadha/Kadhi". But it dont matter, coz Guru Nanak is the king of kings anyway.

Panjabi is the greatest language, apart fom sanskrit, its the oldest language in the north!, as tamil is the oldest in the south! A propoganda has been made by pakistani/indian anti-panjabi superiors that panjabi is some sort of rubbish language, which is only good for cussing someone's mum with or for comedy. Even my mum has sed that hindi is a "polite" language, ours is jus pendu rubbish?!

Panjabi is the same language which heer/ranjha, sassi/punnu, mirza/sahiban and sohni/mahiwal were written in, bulleh shah's poetry is in panjabi and Guru Granth Sahib Ji is in panjabi (gurmukhi) too, it goes without saying!

sorry about my rant!

i would recommend bhai sukha singhs katha, hes a bad boi preacher!

Brother, Hindi is not a dirty/rubbish language. It is a beautiful language like any other in the world. And it is not Hindi that was influanced by Urdu but Urdu that was influanced by Hindi. When Muslim warriors from central Asia moved to India, they mixed Turkic and Farsi words with Hindi spoken in UP/Bihar and created the beautiful language of Urdu.

Guru Nanak Dev Jee's bani is the most perfect and beautiful expression of love for God. Gurbani is not some ordinary writing. Gurbani comes directly from Sachkhand to Guru Nanak Dev Jee. To say his bani is not perfect is puting doubt on perfection of Vaheguru. We are imperfect and our understanding is imperfect, but the Guru is perfect and so is his Bani.

No language should be considered dirty/rubbish. As Punjabis, we need to promote Punjabi as much as we can, but certainly not by putting down another language.

@jonny101 - for goodness sakes bro, I DIDN'T Rubbish Guru Nanak's bani in anyway, read wat I said carefully. I simply said that instead of the old panjabi words, I wish he could of used present day panjabi words that's all, this sites users somwtimes read wat they wanna hear and can't wait 2 jump at others throats.

Oh and btw urdu WAS copied, because when the turks ruled india, they brought with them a language called 'zabani Ordu' which they talked in secretly infront of their hindu slaves, so the himdus wudnt understand wat they were saying. Only until they started 2 use hindus for their own gain, did they teach them 'zabani Ordu' or now 'hindi'

    • Number of suspected modern slavery victims hits new record with more than 4,000 referred to Home Office between April and June this year, figures show From April to June, 4,171 potential victims of modern slavery were reported  The figure is the highest on record and a significant rise from that of last year  The rise has partly been driven by claims of slavery to avoid deportation     There are more victims of modern slavery in the UK than ever before, new figures show.  Between April and June, 4,171 potential victims of human trafficking, slavery or forced labour were reported to the Home Office.  The figure is the highest since records on modern slavery began in 2009.  It is also a rise of 10 per cent from the previous quarter and up a third from the same period in 2021. Figures show the highest number of child victims and 589 referrals involved county lines drugs gangs, also the highest number since records began. Overall, 14 per cent of referrals involved county lines, with three-quarters (446) of these concerning boys. The figures for suspected modern slavery victims have risen each year, excluding 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, 2,727 potential victims were identified - the highest annual figure since records began, when the number was 552. Of the potential victims, 54 per cent claimed exploitation as adults and 39% claimed exploitation as children. Some 43 per cent claimed their exploitation took place overseas, compared to 36 per cent in the previous three months. The vast majority, 79 per cent, of the suspected victims were male. The most commonly reported form of exploitation for adult victims was labour exploitation, 32%, while children were most often referred for criminal exploitation - 44%. Maya Esslemont, director of After Exploitation, a non-profit organisation, said the news: 'Could represent a loss of trust between survivors and the authorities, as the latter can no longer promise victims that they will be protected from deportation if they comply with an investigation.  'We are worried to see a rise in recorded modern slavery cases, at a time when the life circumstances of so many survivors seems uncertain. 'Since the Nationality and Borders Act was brought into force, survivors no longer have a "guarantee" of support even if they are recognised by the Home Office's own decision makers as victims. 'Today's figures show just how urgently this government needs to step up and address the long-term challenges facing each of the victims recognised as an NRM statistic.' Last year, almost 30,000 people were known to have crossed the channel in small boats to reach the UK - likely an underestimate. This was a huge rise from 2020 when just 8,400 made the crossing. The rising figures are likely driven by the rise in illegal immigrants claiming to be victims of modern slavery to avoid deportation. In 2020, almost one in six used the defence as victims of trafficking or modern slavery are protected through the National Referral Mechanism (NRM), a unit run by the Home Office. Claims doubled from 5,135 to 10,613 between 2017 and 2020. It was reported last year that those making the claim included Albanian gangs growing cannabis in the UK.  Albanians comprised the largest number of claims from foreign nationals in the last five years.  One case included Armelind Rexha, who appeared in court in 2019 charged with growing cannabis worth up to £672,000. A judge accepted his claim that he had been forced to do it after he cited the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Home Office minister Baroness Williams of Trafford said last year: ‘There are concerns about the potential for a referral to the NRM to be used to frustrate immigration enforcement processes to gain access to support inappropriately.  'There has been a growth in NRM referrals being made after a person enters immigration detention. ‘This raises legitimate concern that some referrals are being made late in the process to frustrate immigration action and that legitimate referrals are not being made in a timely way.’ The government has proposed to crack down on the use of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to block deportation and criminal prosecution. So far in 2022, over 13,000 migrants have crossed the English Channel and the total number for the year could double that of 2021. The surge in channel crossings has largely been fuelled by people-smuggling gangs helping migrants to make the dangerous journey across the Channel. According to the Home Office, 50 suspected criminal gang members were arrested last year in connection to small boat crossings.  The National Crime Agency (NCA) has also made several arrests this year connected to human trafficking as the number of Channel crossings continues to rise.  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11102361/Number-suspected-modern-slavery-victims-hits-new-record-4-000-April-June.html
    • You sound like an expert, I don't even know what that is. Plus bro, if you've grown up in the UK, you'd know that whatever its origins, bhangra has now pretty much become synonymous with being plastered at the same time.   
    • I don't think that is near contemporary, I'd guess the mid 1800s give or take a few decades either side.  And let's keep it real, the others which some believe are contemporary show Guru ji with an earring. Interesting image though, got any background to it?
