Here's the whole story: So basically there was a rich man who had a lot of money and he was spiritual but not that much. He wanted there to be a viakhya of the whole of Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj and he had the idea to call up all the mahapurakh's he knew of and he called them up to have a meeting. He offered them as much money as they wanted. They started to make this steek and when they had finished they didn't know what to call it since it couldn't really be named after only one person so they named it after where they had the meeting in Faridkot. Hence why its called the Faridkot Steek.

PS: I did type this out myself so apologies for any mistakes and please feel free to correct me. :)

I have a question: Are there major differences between the Faridkot Steek and the Professor Sahib Singh Steek concerning content and perspective and interpretation?

I would really appreciate it if someone could answer this question. :)

I have looked at both and found them interesting but don't have enough gian to know the differences in interpretation.

For those who haven't read them, they provoke some new ideas on gurbani and help to interpret so I would learn gurmukhi and read it.

    • There's 12 year-old boys driving cars in some parts of Punjab. It's been going on for ages. It's not widespread but it happens. I'm impressed yet horrified at the same time. 
    • Driving lesson in Punjab LOL. The guy driving is a Punjabi driving instructor from Wolverhampton, he does mock test videos on youtube.      This driving lesson and test took place in Phagwara.     
    • nice little bit of history, The Times 1841 mentions Maharani Chand Kaur becoming the queen.    Chand Kaur was the wife of Maharaja Kharak Singh. A few hours after Kharak Singh died their son Nau Nihal Singh, next in line to become Maharaja also died. The whole thing most likely was a planned murder, Kharak Singh was poisoned while Nau Nihal Singh was murdered. It most likely was planned by the dogras, other families that opposed Ranjit Singh and probabaly some of Maharaja Sher Singhs men as well.  Soon after Nau Nihal Singh died Sher Singh proclaimed himself Maharaja, Chand Kaur the widow of Kharak Singh and mother Nau Nihal Singh challenged Sher Singh with the claim that her dead son Nau Nihal Singhs wife Sahib Kaur is expecting a baby and till the baby is not born she will sit on the throne, therefore Maharani Chand Kaur sat on the throne in Lahore. Brave woman for standing up to the giants of the Sikh empire! She also managed to get a big % of the Sikh army on her side.  Tragically when Sahib Kaur did give birth it was a still born baby. Maharaja Sher Singh then did not wait any longer when he heard of the still birth and marched with his troops towards Lahore fort. Chand Kaur refused to give up her title and the city broke into civil war. Massive parts of the city were blown up and the number of casualties was very high. Eventually Chand Kaur and her forces had no choice but to surrender and leave Lahore fort. Sher Singh then became Maharaja. Chand Kaur then retired and started living in her sons haveli in Lahore but was still seen as a threat and was beaten to death in the haveli.  The Times 1841 mentioning Chand Kaur becoming queen.
