I saw a video of a kitchen in a dhabba where they were kneading the dough with their feet.

I only eat roti made by my mum in india, the ladies that people hire to clean the house and make roti are not very hygienic either! They itch themselves while making roti.  And they dont wash their hands after sticking the dried cow pat under the chula  lol    its nasty.

I think Rehit Maryada says we only should eat food prepared ourselves or by other Gurmukhs

Makes sense hygienically, energetically, and in terms of fending off poisoning attempts.

in the west obviously most people are hygienic, but i have to say in india only religious sikhs are hygienic tbh. Pinds are cleaner than the shehrs, shehrs are filthy. Gurdware in general are cleaner than mansirs and darghas. mandirs and dargahs are not very clean.

My nani was amritdhari and was very hygienic, always washed her hands before making roti, made sure her chunni wasnt on the floor when kneeling down and cooking, rolled the bottom of her salwar slightly up when cleaning. always washed her hands, her daughter inlaw   my mami was the complete opposite, my mami wasnt a sikh and her salwar used to be covered in cow dung and whatever dirt she dragged around with her from the floor. she never washed her hands, i dont even think she brushed her teeth or washed everyday.    horrible.

how did your nani says han to that bahu ? ...I agree generally religious sikhs have better hygiene than most  . I've found and its has been a source of amusement to be called 'a dirty paki' by a scruffy unwashed nose encrusted white lads who reeked of stale pee and ish as a kid  in the playground growing up when all I smelt of was soap and comfort fabric conditioner  . Even now I notice that goray visiting Indian Gurdwarey are taken aback by the level of cleaning we do in langar and parikarma etc not to mention at darbar Sahib .

Western people are not a lot of them very hygienic

a lot don’t wash hands before eating food or after going toilet

in India it’s mainly only the poor who are not hygienic in my experience

My mami is from a sikh family but she never lived as a sikh. She believed in devi devte and used to do pooja of the photos of durga and Lakshmi in her room. She also followed a lot of dera type babeh and used to go to them for advice. She used to have weird superstitions like she kept stones under her pillow, didnt wash her hair certain days, the manjha had to be positioned certain way.   Every decision she made she used to consult the pakandi babeh and Matas first. Got kundli made for her kids. When her son was getting married she set the date according to the kundli. Marriage ended up divorced and he soon died. Fat load of help the kundli was ...

The number of times she read japji sahib she probably can count it on one hand.   My nani on the other hand was a amritdhari and because of their different beliefs they clashed a lot.

Hygiene was definitely one thing my nani used to have a go at her for  but she never listened, she never even used to wash her hands b4 making roti.

My nani used to wake up 3am in the morning do nitnem, sweep the house, sweep the path leading from our house all the way to the pind the gurdwara and clean the gurdwara with bucket and water and cloth  and then come back, my mami on the other hand used to role out of bed at 9am.

My nani did a lot of dhaan aswell  she gave a lot of money to the poor ravidassia community to help get their daughters married off, she helped so many poor people from her pind go abroad by giving them money  even all the way back in the 60s and 70s.  To this day we used to have NRI bazurgs who my nani helped move abroad back in the 60s and 70s visit our house because they they were so grateful. 

My mami on the other hand used to take wheat, almonds, money and what not and give it to the babeh she followed. She gave so much money to these fake babeh and matas!

Never met 2 women so different yet in the same house!

I hate to break it to you, but I'm guessing she wasn't visiting these individuals and places for a chat over a cuppa and some biscuits. Safe to say she was involved in witchcraft based on what you've described.

    • This was common in the older saroops, however when SGPC standardised SGGS in the 1940s they chose to omit this from the new standard.
    • He got his comeuppence. He was tried and hanged as a traitor shortly by the east india company terrorists after the 1st anglo/sikh war.
    • Sikh woman 1870s The description with the photo is: "Just about the only place where Sikh women were visible to European eyes was the metropolitan city of Amritsar. Descriptions abound of the dress of Sikh women as being of the classic Punjabi kind – bright, colourful and garnished with plenty of jewellery. This traditional ensemble is evident in this full-length study of a Sikh lady. The chunni headscarf was worn at all times over the head as it was considered indecent to appear in public without it. This was worn with a loose kurta or long dress and an ample pair of churidar pyjama trousers tight at the ankles (although some women preferred to wear a petticoat instead). Punjabi women were particularly fond of jewellery, and a variety of ornaments made by highly skilled craftsmen were often worn from head to toe. Our subject wears bale earrings, a mala necklace and stacks of chure bangles that cover her forearms"   Sikh women covered their heads with a chunni at all times because it was considered indecent to be without your head covered. imagine if these bibian of the past saw the "sikh" women of today! It would be a bit of a shocker wouldn't it!    they've got a lot more than just their heads uncovered these days!    
    • Gurmat Gian college of which indar ghagga is principal.   Not really.  There are some threads about him on this site/sikhawareness. Search them.   Any in particular? When I first heard dhunda, it was to do with that kamli kalesh, and I thought he was a good parcharak because he was talking about the Panth and such but when i heard his other stuff about gurmat, i was quite surprised at his views. The guy is a cretin.
    • u need hierarchy but u also need some sort of economic equality. u can't hv a person working in a factory earning 15000 rs and factory owner earning 500000 rs.
