Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Sangat Jeo :)

A few books on learning written and spoken Punjabi have been uploaded on SikhSangat's Scribd account. Perhaps those of us who are not familiar with Gurmukhi script, or those who want to improve their Punjabi vocabulary and general reading skills will find these self-study books useful. :geek:

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."

    • maybe if you call it sikhi instead, we should not be promoting the term sikhism which is a colonial definition. We should use the proper term as sikhi.
    • There's no problem at all. Did the letter say to not eat or to "fast"? If you have to not eat, for whatever legitimate reason, that's not  a problem. The problem would be if you were "fasting" on a religious basis, like showing off how "pure" you are, like some Hindus and Muslims do. We're not supposed to do that.

      My bibi got a letter saying that 12 hours prior to her hospital appointment at Ealing Hospital she has to fast. I know Sikhs are not allowed to fast so I was abit confused, is fasting allowed for these occasions or no?
    • The strange thing is what were they doing stealing a hair dryer or whatever. The girls hair looked straight enough  LOL
