When your family are farmer's in India it's fun when you visit them LOL 

Iv sat on tractors like the bit at the side on top of the massive back wheel. You need to hold on tight because the pind roads are cracked with big holes and bumps, you can easily go flying off if you don't hold on tight, your bum starts hurting because you end up jumping up and down so much LMAO  The drivers seat is a lot more comfortable lol

Iv sat on the back of a cart with a ox pulling it, milked a cow, fed the cows, ate ghana/sugar cane in the fields, fell into cow dung, got mud all over myself while my thia was doing the rice fields lol.  

I even rode a ricksha lolw LMAO  

Never gnna forget those experiences in the pind...

Haha iv had a lot of experience with cow poo in the pind 

About 3 years back when I went punjab, I and these 2 people who work for my nana we went to the fields to collect bags of green leaves and stuff for the cattle, we went on a cart which was pulled by a bull. I sat on the cart wearing a white t shirt and the whole cart was covered in mitti/soil and cow poo haha! Once we reached our fields using this very narrow dusty path, there was very little space there and the only way I could get off was by jumping onto a massive pile of dry cow poo haha! What made it worse was I was wearing flip flops with bare feet. So I hopped off and landed in it, luckily it was dry lol.  I was wearing flip flops and had my jeans rolled up to my knees with a white t shirt that was no longer white, I was covered in cow poo and mitti.  The two guys I went with turned around and said now you look like a proper jatt  LMAO 

One of the guys was like that t shirt is no use so you might as Well give it to me, he had a point a I just took it off a d gave it to him lol. 

But yea I remember I once walked into half dry cow dung cakes and my shoes were covered in wet cow poo lol 

If also held dry cow poo in my hand and broke it in half and put it into the Chula  those traditional mud stoves lol  they use it to light fire to make roti and stuff.

I don't mind getting my hands dirty so it never really bothered me haha 

That stuff is standard when your in the pind.

Fun times though ...

No i am not a ravidasia but i find them interesting due to their weird thinking traditions lol.

Lol yeah  In India sainis do farming too, some tarkhan families do it as well. In my mum's pind some chamars families have fields as well.

Lol yeah it is a part of history for me now because I'm not a farmer and I'm pretty sure my kids won't be farmer's either lol,  but it's still  a part of my heritage, it's what my ancestors did and what they were

I actually found my nanis charka a few years back! It's from the 1950s and is made of talli wood. It has bells on the wheel.     We cleaned it up and got it painted with varnish. We took it to my dad's pind and kept it there.

Ravidassias are a interesting group you should listen to their views on kanshi tv. 

 

Nowdays its sad cos some many farmers are doing suicide and plus the water has been taken away by the goverment i heard. So farming is finished in punjab big time.

Yeah it is really sad. A lot of farmers are suffering now. The fact the government takes water away doesn't help either. Suicide rate is very high as they are taking loans but can't pay them back. And then the loan collectors start harassing the wives and kids. 

Iv seen the state of farmers there, it's very sad. No wonder they are desperately trying to send their sons abroad.

Unless Panjab modernises its economy, it's finished anyway. 

Farming isn't finished there btw. It's probably going to be a situation where a smaller group of large landholders will dominate/monopolise the industry. The rest will have to get over this often strange and unhealthy farming fetish and join the wider workforce.

    • Nanaksar is not a cult, it is a legitimate samparda. However there are many offshoots which use the Nanaksar name and are indeed cultish. Many great Mahapurkhs and Brahmgyanis were from Nanaksar Samparda, truly Gyaan and Sharda da bhandaar. It's a shame people are abusing the name. Also it's worth noting many Nanaksar "Gurdwaras" are in fact, not Gurdwaras; they are called Thath - ਠਾਠ. These are more akin to ashrams and do not generally operate like regular Gurdwaras and therefore do not have a Nishan Sahib. Another one to add to the list of Canadian Nanaksar offshoots is Darbar Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in Calagry - I think this is the Bulandpuri one. I believe this is the same group whos main Dera in Punjab currently has the tallest Nishan Sahib. Pretty cultish from what hear. Ravidassi Gurdwaras are just regular Gurdwaras which are run by the chamaar caste as Puzzled has said. They've in some way made Bhagat Ravidass Ji their patron saint given he was from the caste. Nothing wrong with it imo. The Jaikaara the OP refers to is: Bole So Nirbhey Sri Guru Ravidass Maharaaj Ki Jai. Most do the normal one too. But there's also the breakaway Ravidassis who made their own religion. They have shunned Sikhi. I don't know how many of these are in the west tbh. I was saddened on my last trip to India...was just checking out local pinds and in one of them, I decided to pop into the Ravidassi Gurdwara - there was nothing there, just a picture of Bhagat Ji. I asked an old bibi there what the deal was and she said we don't have Maharaaj Saroop, no Granthi, no nothing. This caste divide has lead to people making their own places of worship on principle but some of them are empty and these people are spiritually deprived....they honestly seemed helpless. I mean even one Sikh could at least just go and do Nitnem with them. Hopefully I'll be able to return there. Aaanyway, I think OP might actually be a troll....I mean he called Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaaj "Sikh Holy Book". And also welcome back Jagsaw Singh.
    • I'm talking about everywhere , my own cousin after money had been spent like water on her education as an engineer and her securing a well paid job was snapped up by her Hindu classmate , they even refused to come to Punjab to get their son married to her , and my army Major Mama  took that <banned word filter activated> and got her married there in maharastra . The other daughter is similarly surrounded by hindu 'admirers'. Younger sister of my childhood friend both amritdhari got her head turned by a hindu guy too , what I don't get is why would you go where people try to stop you from freedom of thought/faith/life by their very philosophy of life ? Oh well  guess it's a matter of sanjog
    • if that were true how would Ravan been invited to Sita's syambar , remember her father invited only the best and dharamic loki out of the kings and princes . Ram killed a shudra in the manner of an animal  that does not mean that person was an animal . Maybe you should listen to katha but Sant Singh Maskeen ji  about Ravan . Remember the victors rewrite the history to suit ....
