Should sixteen-year-olds select a faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives after taking an aptitude test.

Daas watched the movie a long time ago, and apparently main person had the unique test results of being multiple castes, (equivalent to Brahmin, Khatri, Shudra, Vaish), but according to Gurmat each human is allowed to do whatever they want, not be obedient to a caste, but liberation from it. A Sikh is higher than the highest caste,

Factions can also be based on virtues like

Daya, Dharam, Himmat, Mohkam, Sahib 

Or

Ajit, Jujhar, Zorawar, Fateh.

It is not possible for an individual to have all these qualities.

In order to become an expert we choose academic subjects same principle should apply to virtues.

The first two books were good. The last book was crap

I lost interest after the second book in all honesty, Seems like there's a nice trend going on in post-apocalyptic society based books. Makes me wonder if people are finally thinking a bit.

Your going to make a new caste system, with the names of Gursikhs? Also for the 4 Hindu Varnas a person can easily be getting knowledge, (Brahmin), be physically fit, (Khatri), have a business, (Vaish), and clean their homes, (Shudra). Ajit and Fateh mean the exact same thing. Zorawar is a word meaning strong, and Juhajar means Shastardhari. (They all can easily be interconnected). And it is possible for someone to have the Punj Pyare qualities, (actually all 15 Bhagats would probably have all 5 qualities).

Humanity is interested in dystopian worlds for some reason, (The Hunger Games series were also popular among people who had an interest in these sad worlds).

you would be incomplete if you only have one aspect ... why divide what is naturally there in all as you progress?

Why are you guys so obsessed with caste.

This topic is not about caste based divisions 

"Faction before blood/lineage"

It is about choosing a particular stream.

Like joining Akhand Kirtani Jatha to learn Kirtan or studying Santhiya from Damdami Taksal or learning Martial Arts from Nihangs.

nah it's programming to expect the dytopian model to become the norm ... anyway Guru Sahiban have already told to expect it and worse and to conquer it through sikhi

Being skilled in only one thing isn't the best ideal either, since you got the idea from Divergent you would notice she could choose any of 3 castes, (factions), among 5 total. In an ideal society, nobody would only get 60% of the choices, (if they got choose), she was born in the caste, (faction), Abnegation, but changed her caste, (faction), at least 2 times.

all sikhs have to learn to do shudh paat, be knowledgeable in dharam, do kirtan , be shastardhari (holding is not the same as being able to use effectively) each sikh represents the parents and the panth - besides all those jathebandis would all say we are sikhs not flanna flanna sikh , we are sikhs of Guru Granth sahib ji and Guru Panth Sahib ji

Did you read about "Factionless".

"There is one more group that is not part of the social classes or factions. These are the Factionless. These are the people who failed to complete their initiation into whatever faction they chose and live in poverty, doing the work no one else wants to do."

In reality people belonging to similar faction or jatha get preferential treatment.

Akj's marry akj, Ddt's help in placements of ddt religious workers abroad.

"Jack of all king of none"

That is the reason system has not produced Khalsa but khasis, pappu's & chakkas !

Where are the dauntless when you need them ?

    • There's a Pirthiya (Guru Arjan Dev Ji's dodgy brother) in every family, lol.
    • 100% correct. Everyone I know wears a so-called Kenyan style pagh. It's really British Indian Army style, but let's put aside semantics. Most people, the youth included, actually wear the Kenyan style. A few do wear the gol style but it's no where in comparison to the Kenyan style. Ratio would be 1:10 if not more.  Aside from a few elderly individuals*, UK Jatt's are effectively non-turbaned - just ask Jassi Sidhu why he wears a Kenyan turban even though his parents descend from Punjab. His neighbour was Kenyan, his father didn't wear a turban, so he took upon the style of the Kenyans. The gol pagh has taken root to some degree but given the shear numbers of Kenyan style turbans, and their descendants, there's mathematically zero chance of a takeover. The Kenyan pagh is not a phase but the same can't be said the gol pagh. Only time will tell. The Patiala shahi or the "Indian style" has no precedence in the UK - jatt's had/have no interest. They're nearly all clean-shaven by default. Aside from a few of their progeny who've been taken in by various Sikh camps, they have no interest. Walk into any British educational establishment - from Aberdeen to Southampton, it's mostly Kenyan turbans - if any. If you do see a chap wearing an Indian style, he's recently arrived from India. Chances are his children will discard the pagh or, adopt the Kenyan style. Kenyan turbans are 4th generation now. It's no surprise that all the major legal turban battles in the UK were fought by non-jatt's. Motorcycle helmet in Manchester (Giani Sundar Singh Sagar), caps as part of the bus driver's uniform in Wolverhampton (Tarsem Singh Sandhu - my uncle) or a Brummie school kid being asked to wear a cap as part of the school uniform (Sewa S Mandla).  Legislation affecting headgear never affects jatt's  -why would it? Jatt's can mock the Kenyan turban all day long, but it doesn't take away away from the legal fact that today, British Sikhs wear turbans in the High Court or operating theatres or to school or drive buses because non-jatt's decided to not cut their hair and conform.   Conflict of interest: I wear a British Indian Army style aka Kenyan style pagh. However, my father wear's an Indian/Patiala shahi style. *many of these individuals were non-turbanned throughout their lives but adopted the pagh upon retirement, maybe born-again-Sikhs or more likely, embarrassing bald patches.  California Sardar is more informed about the UK pagh than the Sikhs living in the UK. How utterly bizarre.
    • Sunny although the elder brother is quite envious of his younger brother and is desperate to get out of his shadow.  Must be quite hard for him to accept that Jagraj was the alpha male who got all the girls in his pre-amritdhari days. Jagraj was the charismatic one and Sunny was the creepy one.

      There are not many people here on this forum that know who I actually am. Just one or two.  But when I started this thread at the end of 2018, when NKJ were at the height of their popularity, Gurdwaras were falling over themselves to book them and they were feeling so confident they were even registering at Companies House as a profit making company I will forever remember what one or two of them said (and you know who you are). NKJ will be finished after this. Like I said: My job here is done.
