The worst part is when you have been correcting them for a year or more after they read your name in the register and they got it wrong all the time.

"It will come to me next time!".

YES!!!!! That happens all the time. Once a dopey supply teacher called me Toronto. You should've seen my face. She looked at me and then she re-read my name and then said it properly. It wasn't even funny so don't even dare to smile... :@

Jk it was pretty funny afterwards though. I have a friend called Harpal and all the teachers call her Harpul and she gets annoyed too.

Ohhh... I don't think it will EVER come you miss!!! Is what goes through my head every time. :rofl 

To be honest my name is actually written with a yet everyone pronounces it like a or something.

Actually its meant to be pronounced like how it is in the title of this thread.

Thurren sounds better. There is no 1 way to write it in English so you can improvise so it sounds more like punjabi. 

How many people like my name? Any takers?

I like your name.. Very similar to mine and very different. Yea its because Gurmukhi has a phonetic alphabet so there are different sounds rather than just one sound for each letter. My names Taranjot do you like my name?

Hi Craig, yes the name is definitely the one usually spelt Taran in the west but actually pronounced as you wrote it "thurr-run".

Another idea for your daughter could be to give her the middle name Kaur (which means princess). Many inspiring stories of female heroes with that name such as Mata Gujjar Kaur and Mata Bhag Kaur.

    • I tell you one thing that set me back years (unnecessarily in my opinion). When I started trying to read Gurmukhi properly I too tried with Gurbani but for some unfathomable reason no one told me that certain vowel symbols (especially at the ends of words) are grammatical indicators and are not actually read as part of the word. This can confuse people (well it did me).  So you might want to focus on some other less difficult texts (like children's books with words you might already know) for a bit - just to get proper familiarity with the sounds associated with the symbols.  Dasam Bani doesn't use these silent symbols so you could also maybe use that as a tool to help nail reading?  Great that you've got to this point in any case! Good on you. There is nothing like being able to read in the original script - keep at it!
    • Bhulan andar sab ko, abhul Guru kartar... Just needto cross reference with Guru ji as the saying goes anything worth knowing is worth the effort
    • It is an inadvertent way of the Pak Govt saying " Hey Sikhs, if you want to see your Historical sites, you pay for it". The fact of the matter is that Pakistan does not get a lot of tourists in. There are growing number of Sikhs going there and Sikhs going there will spend money. It won't just be pilgrim tours, there will be knock on effect in other areas too. People who left after partition may want to see their ancestral villages.  
    • No, there isn't, in the way they mean it. Granted, Gurbani says you need a guru. But that the Radha Swamis give the wrong meaning of that to say you need a "living" guru. Of course, though, our Guru is living. What they mean is a Guru made of flesh and bones. If they are saying the meaning of this is that there is a Satguru in every age (jug), then there still is a Satguru ... Guru Granth Sahib ji. It's fine to say that there is still Satguru. Where in Gurbani do they get that Satguru's name is Gurinder Singh Dhillon (the current Radha Swami guru)? Yeah. Tell them, so? You can't find God without a guru. But the only guru worth having is the Satguru (true guru). Gurinder Singh Dhillon is definitely not it. ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਬਾਝਹੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਨਹੀ ਕੋਈ ਨਿਗੁਰੇ ਕਾ ਹੈ ਨਾਉ ਬੁਰਾ ॥੧੩॥ "Without the True Guru, there is not another Guru, and the one without the Guru has a bad name." p434 Ask them to prove that Gurinder Singh Dhillon is the Satguru.
