Though I hate Sarna Delhi congress agent but i have to give them praise for doing much better service for visitors. Delhi gurdwara Saran/niwas system is very nice and heard same from many different people.

My relatives in India who are well connected visits amritsar once in a while and they never able to get any room.. They never use names/safarish for anything. One time late night they didn't get any room and were walking away to make other arrangement.... An old sewadar at the outer gate suggested that Sita Niwas hotel is next door.. They replied in calm manner, guru ramdas jee deh gharoon kad keh, hun sanu Sita niwas bejo.

It won't be surprised if these front desk niwas sewadars or sgpc members get paid monthly from local businesses such as Mahan thug 'chatter Singh jivan Singh hotel' and others...

Generally the people in those nri rooms just say it is full they have some commission system set up even with the rikhisha, taxis and autos they commision people secretly, it can take bribes at times. They try send you to private hotels. You have to do underhanded things to get a rooms when you have underhanded people working there. Make sure you look after your stuff loads of people get jacked also in harmandar look after personal stuff people jack stuff, if you have women with you take good care of them. Loads of messed up things happen.

That is outright slander and a defamation. There is no commission system.

Delhi committee charges a fee of Rs 300 for getting room.This was introduced by Sarna.

When i went, i got a room...no argument, no one stole anything and everything went smoothly. No one tried to take bribes or try to send us to a hotel and no one said or did anything that would harm anyone.

People writing about bribing is a lie. There may be drawbacks in the system especially with increasing input of tourists. But asking for bribe

is just not possible.

VJKK VJKF!

I have just been to Darbaar sahib and spent over a week there staying at the NRI Nivaas. Theres no need for bribery or pulling strings as the sevadaars there seem fine. The rooms are very well kept and just outside Darbaar Sahib entrance and I was a Bibi alone and had no problems. You can come and go as you please..spend all day till early hours of morning doing seva at darbaar sahib if you want, and you can still walk into your room as and when. Amazing experience. hope u have a great time :)

SGPC is 100% rusty machinery and there is desperate need of overhaul and those who are opposing such change are living life with rose coloured glasses and they deny the wrongdoing going on because of their biased sooch. System is broken and so is our kaum in punjab who votes for wrong sgpc members, same members who decide budget of 600 crore in seconds by raising hands. Education revolution is the only solution in punjab.

I think there should be a journalist sting operation to highlight this thuggery to Sangat.

Best way is to get undercover cameras, hidden cameras. It is for real, just people are not aware you might want to sneak a camera you will be surprised what you find. You can get these special ones which you can hide on your coat and everything with mic, or you could record and upload it to youtube.

    • Too add another piece of the puzzle of what apnay experienced during the colonial period (as requested in the OP).         It’s easy to be mistaken by this picture of a gentle, stooped, grandfatherly 95 year-old. He was in fact one of the most feared and dangerous men in British India. So feared was he by the British that, shackled in irons, he was held for 16 years in near solitary confinement 1000kms off the shore of India for fear of the revolution he tried to spark. This is Sohan Singh Bhakna, founder of the revolutionary Ghadr Party. When India joined WW1, every young Punjabi man was vigorously encouraged to join the Indian Army; British officials, Indian nobility, Indian district bureaucrats, even the Indian National Congress and Mahatma Gandhi joined forces to promote recruitment. Opposing that consensus was a vociferous, violent energetic group, operating from North America called the Ghadrs, or revolutionaries. Sohan Singh Bhakna became active in the early nationalist movement before he joined the small pioneering stream of men who moved out of Punjab to the Pacific Northwest in the early 1900s where he worked in lumber mills. America wasn’t colonising India but there was no lack of racism and discrimination toward the ‘Hindoo’ labourers and Bhakna rapidly joined the early Indian labour movement. He founded the Ghadr party with other North American Indians who agitated for the overthrow British colonial authority in India by means of an armed revolution. The Ghadrs viewed the Congress-led Independence movement as soft and unambitious so adopted a harder stance with their principal strategy to entice Indian soldiers into armed revolt against the British taking particular advantage of the vulnerability of the First World War. Their revolutionary plans included smuggling arms to the passengers of the Komagatu Maru on their return to India, making overtures to the German Embassy in the US, pumping out revolutionary messages to Indian soldiers via their prolific pamphleteering. Their most seditious and dangerous plot was to coordinate violent armed revolutionary activity with Indian soldiers in SE Asia. Alarmed, the British promptly arrested Sohan Singh as he tried to enter India in 1914 and tried for conspiracy. Found guilty, he was sentenced to death. A sentence later commuted to life imprisonment in The Andaman Islands, 1000kms off the shore of India. There Sohan Singh settled into a period of revolt and activism with repeated hunger strikes to improve the conditions for his fellow prisoners. Both in the Andamans and back in India where he was imprisoned until 1930 he carried out hunger strikes for Sikh prisoner’s religious rights, the rights of lower caste Indian prisoners and in support of Bhagat Singh. By the outbreak of the Second world war, Sohan Singh had been released 10 years and was an active and fearsome political voice for the Communist Party. War brought new rules, and the Indian Government arrested and interred the now 70-year-old Sohan Singh for 3 more years in an Indian jail lest he revive his violent tendencies during a time of wartime vulnerability. He lived another 20 years after Indian Independence and the Partition, a constant and prolific voice in early Indian politics. He died in 1968, ending a phenomenal life of 98 years, in his home district of Amritsar. -Amandeep Madra https://barusahib.org/general/sohan-singh-bhakna-the-man-who-shook-the-britishers-with-fear/
    • I've worked around a lot of them over the years. For all their faults, none of them (that I've met) seem remotely concerned with the colonial thing, they seem too shrewed and self-serving for that. It's some western raised apnay that do this this.    
    • I agree that the situation is improving among western born Sikhs, but I don't think there has been any significant growing consciousness in that regard among Indian Sikhs.
    • You're right, but I don't see hordes of apnay queuing up to join in, like before. We do have a ground level movement that questions the past in the UK like never before. 'No more sepoys'. The whole colonial period is under scrutiny across the board these days.  Interestingly, this is part and parcel of a growing consciousness in broad areas amongst Sikhs. Of course we will have opportunists and the gullible who struggle to put the past in proper context, but then that just makes the job of de-brainwashing apnay all the more important. We might not be able to educate every last person, but we can make a big difference, enough to reign in the confused.  
    • This is no big mystical revelation imho.  European whites fighting amongst themselves has been on the cards for ages. It's the natural state of things if long term history is anything to go by.  The only good point right now is that we don't hordes of our own illiterate pendu peasants lined up to do goray's dirty work for peanut money that was stolen off them in the first place (like in the previous conflicts with krauts/nazis).  Shasters will be/are important, but anyone who doesn't recognise how important ashtars i.e. projectile weapons like guns, canons, missiles etc. are today is a bewakoof of major proportions. Those of us in the western diaspora: abled bodied young men and women, get ready to defend your own community in the potential face of a rise of racism. It's been done before. Plus the indigenous nazis in many western disaporas have now been reinforced by 'refugee' eastern european ones.  It doesn't take a genius to figure out what we may have to face.
