Is there anybody in the Canadian Reserves right now that can give me some tips on joining a medic company? I plan on joining after finishing high school and I want to work while pursuing a job in the medical field in university. I mainly want to go in for experience, I feel it could be useful for the panth.

Joining a non Sikh military isnt useful for the panth unless you just join it to learn how to fight. Akal Purakh Ki Fauj is fully independent from worldly politics and only fights for Dharam, not oil or money. 

I know one Singh who was in the Canadian army, if you want, I can get you in contact with him, just let me know.

Absolutely @TheeTurbanator I'd appreciate that. Also, I agree that as a sikh the only army we should serve with is a the Khalsa Fauj. I should definitely keep that in mind and not get attached to working for Canada. I want to treat this solely to acquire skills for the panth.

Kudos to you brother, I was planning on joining the Reserve, but unfortuanteliy my eyesight is weak in one eye.

I think you will learn a lot of skills, it will help build your confidence, and gain skills. The reserves is good and if you are interested, you can join the army, navy, airforce later. Canada is led by a Sikh Defense minister, enough said.

 

Fellow Canadian :0

Thanks singhji, though on the topic of eyesight I also need glasses (-1.6 diopters), though they have improved. From what I can see there are a lot of jobs in the reserves where perfect eyesight isn't a priority. Also there might be plenty if ways to improve your vision. There's this site https://endmyopia.org, and they discuss a lot on improving vision naturally by breaking poor habits and using perscription only when required. I recommend you take a look, it could help you.

Come, on, man, is joining Microsoft or Amazon or Google "useful for the panth"? How about running a local corner store? Is that "useful for the panth"? Or blood-sucking lawyers or financiers? Why are you singling out soldiering?

There are very few people who work exclusively "for the panth". The rest just give 10% of their earnings as dasvandh.

In any case, I'd rather have Taj Aujla (first Sikh soldier to guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Canada) as a role model for young Sikh men than Simarpreet Singh Sokhi, Bhartyanattam dancer. We desperately need more masculinity in this weak Panth:

I don't know if the Canadian forces are like the American or British forces, i.e. go all over the world and poke their nose in where it doesn't belong like Iraq, Syria, Libya. If they are like that then I would not recommend joining.You will be fighting in a useless never ending war that is being backed by oil and weapon organisations.

I personally believe that war should only be for self defence purposes but the likes of America and the UK are using their armies to conquer other lands, just like the colonial days and are leaving those countries that they invade in far worse shape than they were before.

If Canada don't get involved in these sorts of things then by all means join but if they do go abroad to places like Iraq, Syria - then avoid joining, you're just being used as a pawn in a bigger game.

The same logic applies here, joining corporations themselves isn’t useful to the Khalsa Panth, with the exception of joining them to gain skills which will later be used to help the Panth. 

Remember: at the end of the day Microsoft and Amazon are businesses, and fundamentally exist to create money. They are not there for morality or to uphold Dharam like the Khalsa is. 

If Amazon and Microsoft were given a choice to choose between Indian Government and Sikhs, they would choose the government because it would lead to more opertinity for them in the Indian market (which by itself far outweighes Sikh international market). 

The Army or corporations are not moral the same way the Khalsa Panth is. The Khalsa Panth does not bend backwards to Politics or Capitalism.

I’m not, I never said this only applies to soldiers. You are assuming that I’m singeling them out. The only reason I didn’t menton cooperations was because this topic was specifically about the army, and my points I raised still stand undefeated. 

I also didn’t know that someone would cherry pick my statements instead of looking at the underlying message behind it which basically answers the question.

Joining army or police force is very good career path for sikhs both according to our past history and our martial tradition and many practical reasons and benefits which is compatible with sikh way of life. We should all encourage it.

Many Sikh mahapursh in the past to name few prominent ones in the past- sant karam singh hoti mardan, sant aya singh hoti mardan, sant attar singh reru sahib, sant jvala singh ji etc also have joined army for couple of very good practical and spiritual reasons-

a) serve the country they live in - noble and pious

b) military requires great discipline which is compatible with sikh discipline for being timely, getting up early, be fully active and martial

c) miltary and or on being on police force-various task/mission takes one to edge / lives on the edge where one mind stops enforces one to be in the present moment only - one only functions through fearless/ great inner wisdom- bibek and inner highly intuitive awareness - gur-chaitan which is also very compatible with meditations/abhyaas within sikhi

d) many military traditions allows diversity when it comes to individual war cry traditions such as moari war cry for example and ours being war roars from gurbani- sri guru granth sahib ji, sri dasam guru granth sahib and Gurbani abhyaas from it while training or completing a mission or task.

What policies has the current Sikh defense minister implemented to stop sexual harassment and sexual abuse of women in the Canadian army?

What Sikh teachings has he implemented to stop sexual harassment and sexual abuse of women in the Canadian army?

That's a world wide problem unfortunately. In the military, business, and government alike. Hopefully the defense minister is part of the solution. 

I can tell you first hand, the problem is very entrenched in sub cultures, even when the broader organisation seeks to stop it.

    • I would highly recommend doing one thing at home. Once a week, pick any week, do kes ishnaan and make Kadah prasaad at home.  Many here may / may not agree with me, but make it according to Taksaal Maryaad is the best way as it's the traditional way of preparing it, going back to Guru Ji's time.  Nothing too difficult. Get Iron Kadahi (fryer) and iron saucepan (make sure it's NOT Non stick but classic or normal iron) 3 steel bowls (caulia). Butter, flour, sugar in equal measures. Pop equal measure of water per serving (so let's say five ingredients are 1kg that'll be 5kg water) in the saucepan let it boil on high heat first then low after adding sugar in the hot water. Then let butter melt in the kadahi before inserting flour, mix and keep on medium heat. IMPORTANT! At this stage start Japji Sahib the paat very, very slow. Then do Jaap Sahib. The flour mixture must go dark brown. Add the heated water mixture then stir until the mixture looks golden brown.  Cover the Kadahi with a white cloth and leave on a table placed with a cloth. As it's cooling down do Anand Sahib (40 Stanzas) then do Ardaas. Whatever you ask for your situation will become 1000 times better. After Ardaas and before distribution of Prassad to all family members, you can even do more Baanias over it (Chandi d vaar 5 times is favoured) this up keeps the degh and gives it an extra umph. However, Mool Mantar and Gurmantar too is good enough. Some will even get a steel thali and five steel bowls to take out for panj pyaare. This too must b covered with a white cloth. However, a few mins later the prasaad in the five caulia can be inserted back into the main bowl.  NOW the Prassad can b distributed to fam members, friends, colleagues etc etc.   
    • Academic who tried importing child sex doll from China avoids jail after police found child abuse images on his computer following customs tip-off Malcolm Young was put on the radar of Northumbria Police buying the sex doll  61-year-old's purchase was intercepted by Border Force officials, raising alarm  Following an eight day long trial, a jury found Young guilty of all five counts  An academic has been caught with child abuse images after buying a child sex doll from China that looked like his ex-girlfriend. Tech professional Malcolm Young was put on the radar of Northumbria Police when he attempted to import the 3ft2, flat-chested doll, with clothing and accessories, in 2017. The 61-year-old's purchase was intercepted by Border Force officials who told detectives of their concerns about the package.     Officers visited Young's home in the East Woodburn area of Northumberland to question him about the doll and seized his computers and phone.   The electronics were reviewed and officers uncovered indecent images of children on his computer that Young had tried to delete. Young, of East Woodburn, Northumberland, was charged with four counts of making indecent images of children and one count of tax evasion, concerning the doll. He denied his guilt and tried to convince a jury at Newcastle Crown Court that he purchased the small doll, not based on its likeness to a child but because it resembled an athletic female body type. Prosecutor Graham O'Sullivan told the court: 'He said he had ordered a doll that looked like an ex-girlfriend, that he had cancelled, and had not ordered any child sex doll.' Young had also claimed that the deleted images found on his device were not his but may have been made by people visiting his home while attending parties. Following an eight day long trial, a jury found Young guilty of all five counts. The court heard the charges related to one Category A image, the most serious, two Category B and 35 Category C. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail, suspended for two years, and was ordered to carry out rehabilitation and has been subjected to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order. Also, he must pay £9,480 prosecution costs. At his sentence hearing today, Christopher Knox, defending, said Young, who had been living in Spain and has a boat there, made his money through tech industries. But Mr Knox added: 'He has had a very successful career that has been totally destroyed. 'He won't be able to be employed by anyone ever again in the fields in which he has excelled.' Judge Stephen Earl sentenced Young to 18 months imprisonment, suspended for two years, with rehabilitation requirements. Young was even photographed with former Prime Minister who came to the opening of his company e-Therapeutics. The judge said Young had 'lost a lot', including a 'chancellorship at the University of Newcastle', due to his offending and added: 'His fall from grace is long and hard'. The judge added: 'This whole issue came to light as a result of the fact the defendant had ordered what can only be described as a child sex doll.' Judge Earl said Young had claimed in his defence he had not wanted a child sex doll and had cancelled what he ordered, which was a doll he 'wanted to look like Dawn, his former partner'. Young was even photographed with former Prime Minister who came to the opening of his company e-Therapeutics     The judge said Young had produced pictures of 'Dawn' during the trial, who was described as a 'small adult'. Detective Constable Alison Felton led the investigation for Northumbria Police and said after the conviction Young thought he was 'above the law'. She said: 'This has been a long and protracted investigation involving the making of indecent images and the importation of a child-like sex doll. 'We are committed to making sure that offenders are brought to justice, no matter who they are or however long it takes. 'Young thought that he was above the law. He has taken no responsibility for his crimes and the jury saw through the preposterous account he gave to the court.'   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10025733/Academic-tried-importing-child-sex-doll-China-avoids-jail.html
    • I'm not sure we could list all the ways they move heroin. I mean. Trebuchet, underground tunnel, boat, plane, car, umbrella, carrier pigeon.  Drugs all but move themselves. You just watch them do so until they come lock you up. And collect that fat revenue you collected for them.
