all those ppl crying bowt this legitimacy of this thread, get a life guys, come on wats wrong with watching films, not all r dirty or full of rubbish messages. Some films, like American History X and Higher Learning, have an amazing message 2 em, and have fantastic quotes that ppl make in reference 2 past poets and political leaders.

even movies like 'Boyz N Tha Hood' have a message about how black ppl r being made 2 kill themselves within their own neighbourhoods. Lawerence Fishbourne made a sensational statement in that film by saying how "its funny how in all the black neighbourhoods theres a liquor shop and gun/rifle shop on every single corner, yet u go 2 beverly hills (white ppl area) n u dont c that there? WHY because they want us 2 kill ourselves! " This tactic deliberatly used by the american govt, is now being used by the indian govt, where tekkha shops r on every corner (govt owned shops btw) and alcohol is given in return for loyalty votes during elections, YET u go 2 gujarat, where there is an alcohol ban in the entire state. I wouldnt have noticed this in my younger days, had i not seen the 'Boyz N Tha Hood' film. Im not solely blaming indian/badal govt for alcohol, but if u keep flashing it in ppl's faces, sooner or later ppl r gonna give in.

i urge every1 2 watch this, ive jus managed 2 get hold of the scene i was talkin about, "The best way 2 destroy ppl, is 2 kill their ability 2 reproduce" - anything spring to mind sangat ji? It does for me, i can think of 1986-1995, where 250,000 sikhs were systematically killed not 2 "remove terrorism" but to kill our next generation, who'd b armed with knowledge! Look at the cancerous water in panjab, which is killing ppl, 1 in 3 in malwa i believe and the chemical in the crops.

I am not speaking from a higher level than anyone..............i'm the same..........was the same..........watched a lot of movies, but there comes a time, when the atma screams and says this is taking you to hell. When you are watching movies, ask yourself what are you not doing? Sant ji did not become a Brahmgyani by living in duality, doing nitnem and watching movies.

The youth today are stuck in a vicious cycle. They want to help the Panth, then in the next minute they forget about helping the Panth and end up doing something that hurts their jeevan and those who are around them (one of the bad things Sant ji mentioned). These kinds of things keep your mind unstable and not to pick on a member, but kaljugi, just showed everyone how stable his mind is, with his last post, "I suppose books will be next on the list." This is a show of fustration and lack of understanding why Sant ji is saying. A stable mind does not react as kaljugi does. Instead it accepts the truth (which Sant ji spoke) with contentment and then contemplates over the truth to figure out why this is the truth. If we all spent less time on movies and more time contemplating over Gurbani, we would have stable minds, which don't lash out when we hear something that doesn't go along with our mind set. Gurbani tells us many times to pick up on the subtle essence, but then also says it is very hard to pick up on the subtle essence of Sikhi. It's hard because we don't let go of the ego. Sorry Kaljugi........you just happened to be the perfect example here. I hope you don't take offence to this.

No it is not taking you to hell. Unless you are watching the wrong movies. you are branding all movies as unhealthy, whereas many people learn many things from them. And even if they dont learn anything positive from them, it doesnt mean thay have picked up anything unhealthy either.

And Sant Ji is talking correctly about "romance" scenes in hindi films, and how hindi films paint an unrealistc portrayal of adult life. But this is not about every film.

You know how many black people turned to Islam in USA/UK after watching Malcolm X?

How many Scots became supporters of SNP after watching Braveheart?

How many Kazakhstanis began to treat their women properly after watching Borat, Cultural learnings of USA?

But due to the recent turmoil in Afghanistan by the Taliban, the Indian government has canceled all visas and announced that they will travel to India.   New Delhi:  All IndiaAsian News InternationalUpdated: October 24, 2021 4:37 pm IS The India world forum (IWF) and other humanitarian NGOs wrote a letter to the Prime Minister Office (PMO) and senior officials of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) seeking early evacuation of stranded Hindu and Sikh community citizens from Kabul (Afghanistan). "Sikh leaders and NGOs including Gurudwara are receiving multiple distressed calls from Kabul from Indian nationals and Afghan nationals of India origin," Manjit Singh GK, former president of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGPC) in s letter dated October 20 said. "Most of them are yet to receive their e-visas in spite of having valid visas earlier and travel history to India. Approximately 100 Indians nationals, including children and spouses and 222 Afghan nationals of Indian origin are seeking assistance from the government of India," the letter further read. Indian citizens and Afghan nationals of Indian origin previously have a visa valid for three years. But due to the recent turmoil in Afghanistan by the Taliban, the Indian government has canceled all visas and announced that they will travel to India. Only e-Visa can be considered for traveling to India from Afghanistan. "This is in regard to our earlier requests addressed to the Government of India for issuance of visas to Afghan nationals belonging to Hindu and Sikh community i.e. minorities. Most of our community members were holding valid visas but unfortunately, on August 25, the earlier visas issued by the Embassy of India have been invalidated," a letter of the president of Guru Singh Sabha Karte Parwan, Kabul read.

    • https://tribune.com.pk/story/2326183/modi-doesnt-budge-on-kartarpur Modi doesn't budge on Kartarpur Indian side of the corridor has remained shut despite Pakistan’s leniency in allowing Sikhs to visit Asif MehmoodOctober 24, 2021 LAHORE: Neighboring India has left no stone unturned in exposing its lack of commitment to its constitutional commitment of religious freedom and the government’s stubbornness in allowing its Sikh population to use the Kartarpur Corridor is further proof. Since its inauguration ceremony nearly 2 years ago, the visa-free border crossing has mostly remained closed owing to Covid-related travel restrictions. However, even when the Pakistani government has shown leniency, to allow Sikhs from across the border to visit the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib using the corridor, the Narendra Modi administration has not reciprocated it. Most recently, on the death anniversary of Guru Nanak arrangements were made for Sikhs who wanted to attend the three-day rituals taking place at Kartarpur but Pakistan’s counterpart kept mum on if they would open their side of the corridor. Now with the birth anniversary celebrations of Sikhism’s founder on the horizon, Guru Nanak’s devotees residing in India see no hope of being able to attend and pay their respects which forms an integral part of their religion. Sardar Jinderpal Singh, who resides in Amritsar, a city in Indian Punjab, told the Express Tribune that he has been trying for months to come to Pakistan to just get a glimpse of the Gurdwara but he has been consistently shunned. “I contact the Shiromani Committee and the immigration officials of Kartarpur Corridor regularly to inquire about the reopening. Not soon, is all I get in reply,” Jinderpal informed over a telephonic interview. Purposefully curtailing Sikhs like Jinderpal from performing their religious rites ties into the Modi administration's conservative agenda of making India a Hindu state, a fact which weighs heavily on the community. “We got access to our holy site after 72 years of prayers and now the Indian government is actively avoiding its responsibility of opening the corridor when it has relaxed every other superspreader related restriction,” an irate Rajinder Singh Ruby said. Rajinder, who is the manager of the Golden Temple, a Sikh holy site in Amritsar, is amongst a significant number of people who believe that India is ruining a symbol of peace by rejecting Pakistan’s consistent attempts at accommodating Sikhs to perform their religious obligations. These beliefs do not come as a surprise owing to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) stance of isolating Pakistan whether it is through targeted disinformation campaigns or malignment at international forums vis-a-vis Kashmir. Read Sikhs for Justice releases new map of Khalistan Sardar Amar Singh, Head of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee, who is also overseeing the arrangements for the birth anniversary, while talking to the Express Tribune said, “our government has reopened the corridor before as well but it seems like our Indian counterparts are bent on not letting us reunite with our families across the border.” This hostile attitude by the far-right government against its Sikh population was first seen at the infamous farmer’s protest held in India earlier during the year in which aided by its supporters Sikhs were demonised and labeled as separatists working for Pakistan. Despite being pitted against their countrymen by their own ruling administration’s nationalist ideology, Sikhs like Ramesh Singh are hopeful of a miracle. “I pray daily that the Modi administration listens to our pleas and reopens the corridor so that my wife and I can fulfill our lifelong wish of visiting the holy land that Guru once used to walk on,” Ramesh told the Express Tribune. Separate arrangements While the Pakistani government might not be able to fulfill Ramesh’s wishes for the corridor being open from the Indian side, it has made separate arrangements to ensure that at least some Sikhs can still be a part of the celebrations. The government will issue 10-day visas for up to 3,000 pilgrims from across the globe including those across the border. Sikhs from India will be allowed to enter through the Wagah border and will then be taken to the Nankana Sahib. After attending the main function on November 19, pilgrims will be given tours to other Gurduwaras across the country.
    • I don't think the majority of british raised people have the physical strength and mentality to do graft like kheti myself?  But who knows? Plus, we have all the tractors/combine harvesters etc. I think it takes a certain type of personality type to graft it out, outdoors. Plus I wonder how we'd handle the heat in summer? From the sounds of it, many young desi juts seem to be resistant to grafting the farms themselves.  I wonder how outsiders would handle being in rice paddies, or raw soil most of the day?  BUT....what we might get is less resistance to modern techniques of farming?  Thinking about it, we'd probably get a wider range of produce being grown to suit our tastes too. Stuff desis don't eat, but we do.  I'm sure some enterprising brother might cultivate some new strain of cannabis and call it: Panjab OG Kush (or whatever else you crazy youngsters are naming these things these days) and selling that worldwide. lol!! The big question is whether we could sustain ourselves out there?
