I am writing a book, called 'The Boy who met Guru.'

Recommended Posts

It takes placed during the 16th century, between the well known first guru, and the last. A muslim boy, finds Guru, mysterious and wise, amongst Hindu and Muslim rule, and it is an epic tale. But I was wondering historically, between 1550-1600 were there any significant issues in Sikh history, that I would want to talk about?

before announcing such plans, you should be doing research massive amounts of reading of Gurbani and sikh history because anything you write should be fully fact checked .

he apparently doesn't need to be taught anything , and yet comes here to ask simple history questions which he can answer himself by reading.

@mahandulai - something worth talking about might be the way hierarchy was. Islamic rulers/monarchs (much like Saudi today) not only mistreated the kaffir but also many from their own community. If you're going in with fiction, it would be nice to paint a vivid image of a child being brought up in an average working class home being witness to a world that fortunately we are no longer a part of.

ok I was thinking pure oppression, but now I see I need to rep the unseen spiritual luxury it was.

    • I"m not picking on anybody,  I asked a question,  "a great connection to your self identity and individuality", I assumed we are supposed to let go of our individuality.
    • Anything that fans our ego is not good for us.  Name doesn't have to add to our ego, instead it can provide us inspiration, in which case it is a good thing, and can become "a great connection to your self identity and individuality" as claimed by the Singhni in question.  Throughout our history, our Gurus have given new names to many Sikhs to inspire them, and these people went on to become model Sikhs.  We must remember that oneness and equality doesn't mean uniformity.  Gurus and saints have wanted people to be "Nirale" -- Tyrants have wanted people to be uniform.  Unless you know for sure that Singhni in question is on an ego trip because of her name, why pick on her?   Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji Fateh
    • So I was on linked in today, one of my connection a Sikhni with phagg, so she looks like a follower of Sikhi, had a post 'the importance of your name' wherein she goes on and quote "Your name is often your greatest connection to your self identity and individuality." I responded with, quote " why get caught up on ones name? Are we not supposed to get rid of attachment? Such as 'self identity' or 'ego'. She then replied with quote "That's another view on it - thank you for sharing your thoughts. For many of us it's about courtesy and showing each other respect." It got me thinking are we now in situation, where we think we know better than the teachings of Guru Granth Sahib Ji? Or am I making a mountain out of a mole hill. Would like some other people's thoughts on it. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
    • haha , ok bro point noted . 
    • Why are you fishing for respect? If it doesn't come naturally to them, is it really worth anything if it needs to be demanded? See, that's the kind of mentality that a banda wouldn't give two hoots about in all honesty. Obsessing over such trivialities is a female trait. Is your mother putting these thoughts and perceived micro-aggressions into your head? Stop it. It's not a respectable form of behaviour. It makes you seem weak. Don't get so familiar with your in-laws. Be polite, be honourable and respectful, but don't talk about nonsense like you've mentioned. It's embarrassing, bro. Maintain a respectful distance.
