While I have the utmost respect for these soldiers, we seem to be making the assumption that they were ALL prime examples of Gursikhs with uchi suchi jeevan

You are actually right. 

As dallysingh has shared letters written by indian soldiers in WWs. We know some sikhs did not behave morally all.the time.

Also there is a biography of Sant M. S. Kamaliye wale. dont remember his full name. But he was a real Gursikh and he expected his soldiers to act morally. And had strict instructions that no matter how the German ladies acted, his soldiers were not to engage. 

I dont remember the punishment he advocated for breaking those rules.

But it does show that not all sikhs were sant level. 

And i think it should be noted that European women were not all promiscuous. Its just that europe has a culture of camp ladies. Women who follow the army and provide laundering, cooking and other services. It was probably these women who were so friendly and pushy. As their livelihood depends on the army. 

And no soldier should be happy to be pursued by them. They are like prostitutes and probably carry diseases. And its just a business to them. So any person with a brain should not be flattered or tempted.

those letters are quite eye opening arent they! then again they were just humans  no different to people of today.  we tend to think people of the past were saints that clearly aint true.   many parts of Europe in the past were just as liberal if not even more liberal than Europe of today.  just look at pictures of berlin b4 the war.   these indian soldiers came from very conservative indian societies and then all a sudden ended up in some very sexually liberated european cultures,  many of the punjabi soldiers must of been like kids in a sweet shop.     

i was reading about a punjabi daku called malangi   who was a muslim but when he was a young boy his mother ran away with a sikh man and took him as well. iv heard similar stories pre partition

    • I lived in Madras now Chennai for 4 months. Very nice people. excellent food. many people told me that it's becoz of Sardaars that we got independence. Very simple nice people.
    • Don't trim it!  I stopped cutting my dhari over a year ago  when you first stop cutting it thats when its becomes a bit difficult to manage, especially your mucha   but once they grow longer it is a lot easier to manage. The same happened with me. 
    • Yh he makes some really interesting points. Like how the Kharku movement was not organized or planned movement at all, it was mainly young men who out of anger with how the authorities were abusing Sikhs  picked up arms and started killing policemen, politicians etc  There really was no direction. This was a weakness on their part.  I do really respect the Kharku Singhs though and their sacrifices, their stories and struggle live on to inspire today's generation    🙏 I think this was one of our weaknesses  the people fighting had no direction 
    • I'm neither for or against Khalistan, whatever people feel is right for them then that is right!  But if Khalistan is created i think there will be a lot of hypocrisy in society, hypocrisy on the same level as our paki neighbors and there "pak" society.  In countries where religion governs the society the religious leaders rise to a very high level of power and in many cases they abuse that power! and people normally out of fear still respect these religious leaders because of the air of religiousness in society.  I'm not saying that is what a Sikh country would be like but it does happen!  A lot of people in religious garb commit every sin under the sun yet punish others for doing the same, its an age old story.  Another thing the culture of the Northern region of the subcontinent is in conflict with the Religions that the people follow in these regions. The culture is very "macho" and rough and not in a Religious way either. North Indian culture really is not sophisticated or progressive. For centuries the tawaifs of Benaras, now Varanasi were the most famed prostitutes in the subcontinent, yet Varanasi is one of the most holiest places in subcontinent. These kinds of contradictions exist throughout the subcontinent, especially the North. Pakistan is a Islamic Republic yet they have Heera Mandi red light district actively used in broad day light. The culture where we come from is very much in conflict with the religions that people follow, thats how hypocrisy comes about as well. Punjab really is no different.  I'm not surprised Southern Indians look down at Northerners tbh!
    • LOL       thats actually quite scary!  I guess thats what Khalistan perhaps will be like
