Awesome post!

This one is especially great in details of a class environment. Look at the bottom left corner here. The kid in yellow appears to be smacking up the other one for breaking his water bucket. lol!

Then on the right corner another kid appears to be punishing a classmate with the old kukkar move. 

Are the ones in the middle are making pens (or kalams)?

hmm

OK from english observations and actually identifiable sikh bibian they wear jooda at dasam dwaar as taught by Guru ji (hukamnama says not wear plaits or open hair, to keep hair covered). Whereas the dancing girls and the ones in the cart wearing their hair similarly like traditional hindu women (compare against southern indian hair fashions with guth and flower adornments)

The sikh lady from amritsar has her jooda on top of her head. The ladies in the cart   2 of the ladies with the pink chunnis have their jooda tied on top of the head too.

Okay, looking at the last image we can clearly see an early example of the now ubiquitous gyani with button-bursting tidh action going on. hmmmmm.....

Yh you can see the European influence in her art, she went to europe for painting classes  france I think?  but really missed india so came back.    Its said she was influenced by the ajanta cave paintings aswell when she visited them, you can definitely see the influence from the ajanta paintings.

    • bhai Rama Singh jee has written that in khalsa raj, even animals will be made to listen to Gurbani and eventually they will get salvation. In Guru Granth Sahib, kabir jee has written that dog of a Gurmukh is better than mother of a manmukh because the dog listens to Naam of its master. This means animals can listen to Naam /gurbani and get salvation.  
    • I don't like it when people treat animals bad.  It's sad when you see people in pain and suffering but for me iv always found the suffering of animals more upsetting.  I always have. The men in my mums side of the family used to keep indian bulls the white ones for racing. Mama used to raise and train them and then sell them. It was a shonkh.  He had one white bull called Saan! Saan was very well known and famed in the region. He won every race. Won so many races that my mama had a whole wall full of trophies. He made sooo much money in the races that my mamas daughters entire wedding was carried out by the money Saan won at the races   reception, dowry everything was paid by the money won at the races.  Used to win massive drums of ghee etc    he was famed throughout the whole region    gave my mama a lot of connections too lol      he then got old and my mama and nana decided not to send him to the races anymore.  But people used to still offer money for him    but they didnt sell him    he eventually died.  Loads of people after the bulls get old and cant race no more   people just sell them off or start making them work in the fields!   I dont understand how people can just sell animals just like that after they are of no use , how heartless and selfish is that      People who treat animals bad are just heartless and maha paapi  People can be just pure evil sometimes.  I dnt agree with these bull races though  I think they are cruel    iv been to a few and didnt like it at all 
    • Asking questions is good when they are genuine.  Which I believe you are being genuine.   However,  you will have to look for the video.  It's on YouTube.   I have no doubt that Sant Jarnail Singh ji Khalsa Bhindranwale said he built a mandir in a village where there was not one.  
    • He seems a bit mental to me. He has the complete opposite of chardhi kala. He just seems to be totally devastated that the british empire (and the supremacist attitudes it was built on) are no longer around like they were in the 'good old days'. He can't seem to imagine any positive future. This western economy model was destined to fail pretty soon anyway, regardless of coronavirus. It's just becoming completely dependent on the arab economy and rich James Bond type oligarch 'villins' from abroad cleaning up money here.  It needs a shake up!  What shocks me here though, is how 'third world' type nations rapidly produced testing kits, and blighty has been bumbling about incompetently in this respect. You got brains from all over the globe here. How the hell did that happen???
    • Which Mandir? Did he built from scratch? Did Sikhs do karsewa? Or did he support the mandir to be built where permission was not given? Is this the jail place story?
