What makes it worse is how these Punjabi women dance these days, mimicking the men with their hands in the air, stomping their feet on the ground. At least the giddha from back in the day had some feminine qualities to it.
Would you believe it! There’s a growing fashion trend in UK since last 10 years where teenage boys and young guys with kesh tie their hair back and wear a patka or african ‘durag’. They feel ashamed even to be seen with a joora on their heads.
Meanwhile in Punjab (from what I see via social media) it’s rare to see an older teenager wearing patka. By age 14 onwards boys are tying really beautiful dastar or dumala.
Honestly what can I say, Sikhs masses are absolute sheep! But just leave them to it. I’m completely against the idea of forcing things onto people. At present I’m also against idea of Sikhi parchar to be honest, because enough is enough now. I feel so fed up with what I see happening. Enough blood has been spilt of shaheeds. There’s a thing called gupat gyan, where things are kept gupat because no one is worthy to receive it.
