From the Preface: "This course... is a complete language course which aims at helping you learn the colloquial variety of Panjabi... One of its major objectives is to help the learner take her/his linguistic skills to the level from where she or he is able to take charge of her/his own learning, become her/his own language teacher and attain higher levels without anybody's help. This course has been designed in such a way that you do not have to learn reading and writing at the same time as spoken Panjabi."

From the Preface: "Younger people may find this very helpful for learning to read Gurmukhi. It is based on the conversion method of learning Punjabi. According to this method, one learns to convert the Punjabi alphabet and vowels into corresponding English forms, the use of which the student already knows. It, therefore, enables a person to read Panjabi in about two weeks time. Learning by this technique becomes interesting because one starts reading and writing words the very first day."

    • Jews have basically invaded Palestine, killed the locals and made it their own country because they believe that it's their divine right because "god" had promised them that land. And this promised land is mentioned nowhere other than in the Jewish bible written by Jews!    What kind of god makes one ethnicity his chosen people and promises them a land just for them?  Jews also see themselves as the governors of the law (10 commandments, torah etc) and also the people that God chose to reveal his laws to.    The whole thing was created to give them special status and for world domination. I even doubt that they were even enslaved by the egyptions, there is absolutely no record of 100,000s of Jews being in Egypt at one time. Made up stories and a made up struggle.  Many Christians actually support Israel as they believe Jesus will return once the Jews are back in Israel, which has already happened.  All they waiting for now is the construction of the 3rd temple.  Even the 2nd coming of Jesus is based around all these Jewish superstitions and their return to Israel. 
    • Bro I believe in 5 pyare there room of Guru Gobind Singh ji my question is there any where Guru Granth Sahib ji saying you need living guru or don’t need living guru I have few radasoami relatives they always quotes few Gurbani pangtiya trying to proof we need living guru they mention jug jug peeri chalay satguru ki   in each age true guru come and they meditate the naam what does jug mean in this pangti I though there are 4 jugs? Har nirmal at ujla bin gur paya nAh jaye ang 66 guru amardas ji telling to find guru?          
    • The rest of us non Jews in the west are not allowed to forget, there are whole museums, TV programs,  movies , news items to remind us. Back in 90s, over 1 million Tutsis were massacred but they have no where near any of the coverage that we receive about the Jewish holocaust.  The Jews in the west are thought in the same manner as the baniya/brahmin is thought of by the general indian public.  The difference between the Jews and Christian/Muslim is that latter two want everyone to follow their creed. The Jews do not do that. However there are elements of their tribe who like to indulge in mischief making.
    • Mir Mannu , Zakaria Khan and Lakhpat rai passed more than 200 yrs ago. They were hitler for us. We still remember the sikhs who suffered in their hands in our Ardas, don't we ? I think Jews should remember that episode on their congregational prayers , not whole of friggin world. So many ppl don't even know who jews are. But then again , I am willing to give the jews the benefit of doubt . They have a pretty cleaner slate than the chrislamo faction 
    • The Jews do seem to lord over everyone in regards to the holocaust.  But how long can this keep going on for. WW2 finished 75 years ago. Any Jew that survived the holocaust would at least be in their 80's.  Once the generation of that era passes on and there would be no one who would have living memory of what happened, I wonder if things will change drastically.  Eventually,  people will start (if not already) get tired and fed up with hearing about it along with being called a Nazi and anti-semitic.
