Things you never see

Our people have always had a fondness for all things German going back decades. BMWs, Mercs and VWs have always been popular amongst our lot.

I think that the fact that we have fought against Germans  in 2 world wars, we have developed a respect for them.

I think it is just the reputation of German cars, and in reality no Sikhs care for World War 2 and the Germans of that time.

In the UK, having a BMW, Mercedes is not really a big deal.

This is not true. 

It is seen as a massive deal to be driving Merv/BMW/Audi/Range Rover in my experience

Driving these cars have become quite common. You see them everywhere .

I think the German respect is more at subconscious level but it seems to have stemmed from the World Wars

I recall a letter by a WW1 Sikh soldier mentioning how strong the German was, clearly if you come over the trenches there would have been hand to hand combat if one was able to dodge the bullets  

I remember in the 80's and 90s when the German football team was supported by UK Sikhs. 

This is just my view

That's funny because I read about coded letters sent by WW1 Sikh soldiers in Europe back to India saying: "The black pepper is stronger than the red pepper." Which was taken as a code that they thought the brown soldiers were stronger than the white ones?

4) a rich Sikh with a social conscience

5) any Sikh in the west going on and on about 1984 widows and orphans and actually putting his money where his mouth is and marrying one of the poor orphans

6) any desi / sikh photograph about something an organisation is doing that doesn't have 100 people standing behind the main person in the photograph

7) an Indian / Punjabi news segment that is not accompanied by dramatic music

8.  anyone with anything interesting to say on sikhsangat.com

9) pavements covered in dog poo. When i was a kid the pavements were full of it and new shoes were guaranteed to be ruined on the first day due to dog sh$t everywhere and most of it was white !!

10) drunk scotsmen / irishmen - the streets used to be full of them. Where'd they all go ?

11) an unattractive Polish girl

12) an attractive Polish man

13) a midlands middle aged uncle not wearing a suit blazer

14) a women from India with feet that are not deformed

15) an apni school headmaster who is not a lesbian...or at least looks like a lesbian

17) scottish pound notes -  to be cheap at weddings without being seen to be cheap

The dog sh1te thing still exists. just go to certain areas up north. 

I think they brought in penalties and fines for dirty dog owners that let their dog sh1te all over the place.

Could well be possibly the case.

But I guess sometimes there is respect for adversary. 

Germans generally are taller and better built than the Brits.

Things you Never see, numbers 27 and 28:

27) Any Tv Programme on BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and SKY 1 fullfilling the 'ethnic' quota that doesn't star Nish Kumar or Romesh Ranganathan. 

Any TV schedule for coming week:

  • 7:30 pm BBC1 : Join Ramesh Ranganathan as he journeys across America on a unicycle
  • 21:00 Sky 1 : Watch the hilaraity as Nish Kumar attempts to cross Russia whilst dressed as a cross-dressing cossack
  • 21:45 Channel 4: In this heartbreaking episode friends Romesh Ranganathan and Nish Kumar go fishing in the Cotswolds only to discover that their friend Mobeen left the box of maggots in the boot of his Honda Civic.

Yes. As far as British TV executives and producers are concerned these 2 men (who make up 0.00000000000001% of the UK Asian population) are actually 100% of the UK Asian population.

28) Any advert on TV that does not contain an overweight black lady laughing / deleriously smiling.  Because, in TV executive land, that's what black people do. They are doing so well in life and society's been so good to them they just can't hide their contentment and spend on average 23.5 hours per day in a permanent state of laughter.....apparently.

    • This thread smacks of hypocrisy. Sikhs are the most obsessed with going abroad out of all communities in India. Often using illegal methods. Travelling through dangerous South American jungles, Mexican deserts, hiding in wheel compartments of aeroplanes, going to fake colleges. All just to get to Amreeka or Inglaand.  A lot will make up excuses that they are being oppressed in India, but thats nonsense, its all for material gain. They are not fleeing Iraq, Syria, Rwanda. What do these unparh illegals do in the West? 10 of them live in one house, they continue their heavy drinking and drugs, harass local Sikh girls. Are they enriching the countries they move to? We are the bhaiyas of the west.  
    • Whenevr we talk of spiritual stuff , it's better we quote from sikh scriptures to back that.  I think this should be an unwritten rule amongst ourselves here 
    • Sri Gur Gobind Singh Ji was born in Patna, Bihar.    Granted, these individuals come with their own traditions/habits - chewing and spitting paan (tobacco) and smoking cigarettes which is bad BUT, this is not enough for one to discriminate them based upon their geolocation/caste.  The Guru's never discriminated other castes. Instead, they embraced them and taught them otherwise. I.e. Kauda Raaksih and Gur Nanak Dev Ji.    I'm against the caste hatred as it's simply not GurSikhi. GurSikhi is compassion, love, understanding and being righteous. There are other ways you can talk to someone to get your point across. Being discriminative and aggresive is not always the best option.  
    • I don’t see a problem with it. The only thing is it shouldn’t ruin the whole movement that the farmers have worked so hard for. The guy who led the charge is actor Deep Sidhu (lead actor from Jora). All the YouTube comments are calling him an agent. I don’t know much else about the guy.
    • Some mona put on a parna for a day (or maybe for just a  few minutes) and hoisted a flag for a second in a meaningless symbolic gesture that will be used as an excuse to brutally put down the protests.   Wonderful.
