Just wondering do we have any in-depth sources on the everyday life of Akali Poohla Singh Ji Shahid. We always hear his generalised exploits but never gain a perception of his character. Any sources from the period etc??? Plus what were his views on the European generals who served alongside him???

Akali Phoola Singh (if I ever had a favorite) would definitely be my favorite Sikh in history. His Anakh, Chardikala and skill as a warrior is unmatched.

Akali Phoola Singh Ji's statement to Maharaja Ranjit Singh for appointing the Dogras and a lala appointing relatives into the court:

‘‘By appointing
people of other religion in Khalsa Raj, you are violating
the policy. This is harmful to the kingdom. Kalgidhar
Patishah has appointed you to be the caretaker of
Khalsa Panth. If you do not mend your policies
consider this meeting as a farewell visit.’’

All this politically correct banter going on today is abused by people to take advantage of us. When will we wake up?

Him,baba deep singh,bhai mani Singh and the sahibzadhyie are some of my favourite..

Akali phoola Singh knew the whole guru Granth sahib ji maharaj by heart.He knew all the 1430 angs..That's amazing!Also his father was a shaheed as well.

Were these vocal disparities ever heeded by the maharajah???? What about after Baba Ji's shaheedi, did his successor enjoy a close relationship with the monarchs of the Lahore durbar? And now heres the main one, whatever happened to the Tarna Dal in all this. We always hear of Budha Dal due to it's parallel capacity as heirs of Akal Takhat Jathedari and Shahidan misl; why not about the role of Tarna Dal during this period and it's five sub-battalions???? Actually I will start another thread on this.

Idk how accurate this is: http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.ca/2013/02/maharaja-ranjit-singh-rise-and-fall-of.html

But, Ranjit Singh was a drunk who died of a stroke related to kidney failure because he 'drank a wine too strong for any european' that had crush pearls in it that clogged his kidneys.

I know he did alot of the panth, but Idk the man drank everyday.

Didn't nihangs used to fling horse dung at him for his stupid decisions?

-

Btw, by policy does baba ji mean 52 bachaans some have called them fake, but Idk.

    • It's very subtle but they seem to resent us purely because of the accident of us being born overseas. I'd understand if the person in question is a clown, but not so much if he or she are fairly decent and respectable. There's a palpable yet very subtle hostility even between cousins from the same family when Beletiyeh return to their family home on an excursion. This type of mentality is a telltale sign of a primitive intellect, and it's those people who require minimal prodding to turn into actual and dangerous threats.
    • A place to post concise news articles and images of the deepening degradation of our world. 
    • Get off the Internet as other people are suggesting. I think you might have reached a point where all the stuff around you has reached a limit and you're (involuntarily) switching off emotions just to cope. 
    • I totally disagree. Dasam Granth is different from SGGS ji for sure, with a heavier focus on social matters, literature, language, politics, culture, Indic mythology etc. etc. Repurposing traditional narratives to suit contemporary Sikh needs has also been done.    If Guru ji used narratives to explain things to Sikhs, it's on you to try and grasp the underlying themes and points of the narratives, not discard them because of your own preconceptions and mental conditioning go against this. 
    • And they probably don't find it remotely difficult given the types of 'apnay' that we are talking about......   I'd guess it might be along the lines of largely, simpleton, docile useful idiots. Ones you can use and abuse and fail consistently, and then condescendingly pat on the head and bring on board again without any serious threat of comeback. People you can readily rely on to turn on each other once you throw a few pennies their way.
