The truth is sadly, that young Sikhs are not into kirtan in a major way. Very few Young Sikhs understand the language or the raag etc especially in the west.
It's one of the aspects that I have been thinking about recently. How the Gurdwaras should do a year of nothing but english talks in Gurdwaras in get younger Sikhs more engaged. Kirtan, Dhadi waran, Kavishri and Katha in Panjabi, rare young Sikhs are interested in these. Maybe it's time to focus on something different that will actually make a difference.
Rape laws in india are quite peculiar.
If a man and woman get jiggy before marriage and then the man refuses to marry her for any reason she can lay a claim of rape on him even if she wanted it at the time. And the police will prosecute it exactly as a rape. It was designed to stop men proposing marriage and then abandoning the women after they got what they wanted.
On the other hand, if a woman were to get caught with a man pre-marriage it is very common for her to claim she was raped/forced. The laws are not like they are in the UK etc.
Quick edit: Asking the perpetrator to marry his victim was very common in yesteryear because parents would fear no-one would marry their daughter if she wasn't a virgin, even if it was through no fault of her own. This happens even in Panjab amongst Sikhs as well.
