I THOUGHT WE WERE TOUGH !?


Guest Singh

Recommended Posts

I took amirt recently and i use to think all the teen Sikhs at the gudhwara sahib were inspirig just by looking at them me being the same age as them. i thought they were awesome sikhs i thought they did naam simram, read gurbani hardout, stood up for sikhi and were tough guys.

But i found out that half if not all these TEEN sikhs are so.wimpy (so sorry in saying that there gurus sikhs i shouldnt be talking like this) they think there tough by taking photos of themseleves with.there sleeves rolled up haha idk so weird they dont listen to katha, i confronted them me being there fellow sikh brother i told them to sit in the hall and stop taking photos of each other, they didtn listen at first and talked back disrepectably because they thought they were tough ithere little group, i gave them a angry look and they got up straight away.... They have nothing agianst me were.mates but i seem to stay away from them from.that day...

I thought these types.of singhs and kaurs were.only in my.gudhwara

Then i found this fourm and saw all these weird posts.. WHATS HAPPENING TO US MAN I THOUGHT WE WERE SUPPOSE TO BE TOUGH ???????????

What you have said is sadly quite true. But I think the thing is we have these really high expectations of them guys, walking around with long gatras and bana, but the western singhs are nothing compared to india singhs. Even singhs my age, as in 16/17 are like soldiers in India, and here some are so femenine. Anyways, taksa/good nihang singhs are great. Just forget the youth in these out of india countries. Most take bana and gol dastar for jokes here, they think they're hard/bad boys but there empty inside...most of them...

Although i understand exactly what you see and mean and have to say that i agree.

true say its called the western influence -no seva, no willingness to do hard work, lazyness bone idle not getting up at amrit vela, all day on the internet. Basically a goreh with a dumalla, but some are chardi kala amonmgst the youth, those that sit in the divaans cross legged for hours or do seva cleaning up, it is in this way that you attain the real Sikhi

It's just kids wanting to belong to something exclusive --- makes them feel special. For some it is about hanging out with friends, having a good time, etc. I don't know I was never like that when I was their age as I took it all very seriously (without being a stick in the mud), and I also didn't like the "youth club" vibe most of the young Singhs were trying to create. To me it seemed they were just resuming the kind of behaviour they exhibited at school during the week, rather than thinking "Okay, lets get serious about Sikhi". The impression I got was they thought the job was done when Amrit was taken.

There wasn't a "them and us" attitude back then as much as there is now as well, in terms of those who had taken Amrit and those who were cut-hair. There was a lot more brotherly love especially as, most if not all, the monae wanted to - one day- become Singhs. Nowadays, if this site is any indication, those days are long gone.

There definitely wasn't any mingling of the sexes --- that's for sure. Even the teen Gursikh bibiya were no-nonsense back in the day. There was no sidling up to any of us with "Veer Ji" etc. In turn they were respected for that big-style, and none of us ever entertained changing that status-quo.

I blame Facebook for all the current bakwaas. And the Internet.... and mobile phones. :giggle:

Waheguru ji,

This can be true for alot of them, but not all. Sometimes such thoughts do come into my mind, but then I think maybe it's their age right now. Age could be a big thing too. But you know not everyone is like that. I know lots of SERIOUS Gursikhs who do not watch TV, listen to music, have no manmukh friends and absolutely love Guru Sahib and Sangat! Honestly, there are alot of Gursikhs who are not like that. Do Ardaas to Guru Sahib ji so that you can find those ones.

Even if such things exist, why dont you just focus on the positives ^_^ . Forget the things they do that arent really Gurmat and be inspired with how much Kamaai they do so that you motivate yourself more and more. That is more beneficial isnt it? :)

I see a lot of Sikh youths these days with big tattoos of khanda and dangly things from their cars. They're "flashy". Most are moneh but some have the appearance of gursikhs. They remind me of the past when people wanted to join khalsa fauj for the looting and fighting rather than for Sikhi.

Sikhi isn't about the external. It is about the internal. It's not about showing people how much you're into Sikhi - all that is part of haumai - ego. Do not be dissuaded or upset by them. Stay true to Guru Ji. Be that awesome example to set to others. Walk the True Path and inspire others to do so.

I remember once my goreh friends saw a Singh friend of mine, and they started all the flirtiness with him, calling him a hardcore gangsta, yet he was in the the full sikhi saroop. I mean to say even goreh find Singhs attractive with their dumall and beards. Now, whenever these goreh talk about guys they're always mentioning singhs and that singhs are perfect etc. Im not like that about guys but have to listen to them and what they think of a singh is exactly what the original poster said earlier. These goreh think singhs are cool and laid back but this impression is made by them singhs, they could change their ownn impression if they wanted, but I guess they like all the attention.
