I totally agree with you on how much youth lack knowledge of Sikhi. You must not forget so many Sikh parents have very little knowledge too due to them misusing their time at gurdwara rather than not learning anything. It's time to reach out to Sikh parents to start taking their faith seriously. Now to inspire the youth you have to motivate them to make their Sikhi faith stronger so giving them countless history lessons will really be a eye-opener for some. A lot of Sikh teenagers are more into the martial art of Sikhi. Using social media to spread Sikhi awareness to the youth can be a big part in the future whether in the music industry or movie industry. Sikh teenagers are being seduced by all the new western culture stuff so it is a must to teach youngsters what Sikhi is all about. It is sad today I see a lot of keshdhari grandfathers with mona grandson or granddaughter it shows you that if we are losing our Sikhi identity then we are headed to a rough path. In 30 years I see a rough future but if Sikh Youth stand up and want to change things around for example more camps and classes or fixing how gurdwaras run then I can see hope.

Gurdwaras should have English Katha along with Punjabi Katha so that children can understand what is being said.

Give chance to young Katha wachak fluent in English and Punjabi to do katha.

Social media is a great place. Gurdwara management should also connect with sangat on social media and keep them updated and involved.

Alot of the elders in the gurdwara's are not willing to allow the youth to do alot of the sewa. I have even personally been spoken rudely to by elders over issues that don't really matter, like one time I took an extra napkin, and the elder baba asked me what I was doing? These are the types of things that youth are discouraged to going to the gurdwara more often. Also I find the katha vachaks that speak punjabi are often very hard to understand and I am very fluent in punjabi, the youth would never understand what they are saying clearly. For the youth I think we often making sikhi hard to approach, which it really shouldn't be!

Teens/ young adults have access to gurbani online if they choose to read it. I did it when I was younger, they have a choice and its up to them if they want to take it.

Parents could teach their kids not to be taken by the gimmick of society and not to just mimick what they see on tv and what their friends may do, but to recognise the freedom of choice to live Truthfully. To recognise maya and how to kill it(the 5 theives).

To teach their children to never slander- I see a lot of children who slander these days, and it can manifest as school bullying aswell. They should teach their children that a strong person would never need to put another down, that only weak, fearful people do that(slander stems from jealousy).

Children should hear stories about the Gurus and the way they chose to live life and explanations of gurbani that they can understand.

Start a raffle for youth.

Let's say those who do Saadh Sangat & Seva for a certain period are eligible for the lucky draw.

Prize could be Dastars, Shasters, Bana, Free entry to Sikh Camp, Free trip to Amritsar etc

    • Sounds like you are here to spread misinformation and propaganda yourself. 
    • Let's be honest, do Muslims need a reason to be anti any non-Muslim? There is no such thing as reciprocity in Islam. In Islamic belief if Sikhs are protecting Muslim women from the Indians then this is because Allah is making them act in this way and not because of Sikhism's higher morality. 
    • One thing that is interesting is how many converts appear to misunderstand the religion of 'peace' and become terrorists. One would be hard pressed to find converts to other religions who after conversion become worst human beings than they were before they converted! 
    • That's the narrative that the Muslims want us to believe so that we can be their useful idio.ts in fighting against the CAA which incidentally helps Sikhs from Pakistan to get political asylum in India. The stupidity of those Sikhs who think that just because they have a common enemy in the RSS means that we should be making common cause with the Muslims is the same mentality that enslaved us in 1947. When will Sikhs wake up and understand that there is no such thing as friendship with Muslims without a heavy price that will one day paid by the Sikhs in the future.  All this characterisation of Muslims as being victims which is being propagated by the Sikh media will disarm the Sikh population and leave them unable to understand just what a danger Islam is. While the rest of India is getting rid of their Muslims, our actions are ensuring that any Muslims who want safety will want to come to Punjab and our naïve Sikhs will be ripe for a love jihad onslaught and the useful idio.ts in our community will be financing the building of Mosques and ensure that Islam once again becomes the danger that it was pre-1947 in East Punjab.  If we have to come common cause we should be making common cause with the Dalits and Advasis who are the real victims of Hindutva. Making common cause with Muslims and Christians in India is to empower those who have evil intentions towards us. 
    • Cycling is bad for the Economy Hilarious but true too 😄  Sanjay Thakrar, CEO at Euro Exim Bank Ltd.  got economists thinking when he said :   A cyclist is a disaster for the country's economy  - He does not buy the car & does not take car loan  - Does not buy car insurance  - Does not buy Fuel  - Does not send his car for servicing & repairs  - Does not use paid Parking  - Does not become Obese  - Yes,.....and well, damn it !!  Healthy people are not needed for economy. They do not buy drugs. They do not go to Hospitals & Doctors.  They add nothing to country's GDP.  On the contrary, every new McDonald outlet creates at least 30 jobs - 10 Cardiologists, 10 Dentists, 10 weight loss experts apart from people working in McDonald outlet.  Choose wisely: A Cyclist or a McDonald ?   Worth thinking. 🤔🤔😀😀 PS. walking is even worse. they do not even buy a bicycle.
