A nihang chaunni in Siberia will be amazing. winters r harsh but there is great potential for shikaar.

I don’t think the Nihungs would be able to cut it in that environment.  Probably need about a couple of hundred years to evolve to endure such a harsh cold and bitter climate.

Another unique breed the ‘Fresian’.  It reminds me of Singhs after Keshi Ashnaan.  Look at the length of their hair.

I think your right!  I know our Singhs have strong resilience and the mindset is to succeed in all situations.  Chardi kala wherever or whatever the situation ahead of them.

They have these all over Punjab.  The one in Amritsar used to be held once a year and you can purchase horses as well as rent out your Stallion for breeding purposes.  Some people just turn up to show off their horses, after a long year of hard graft looking after these animals.  Good place to see and talk to experienced individuals about breeds.

Yeh definitely do that.  Also go and see the horses that never make it to shows or the mandi, which are kept by the Nihungs.  Baba Bakala Nihungs or Harianwala Nihungs have some of the best horses.  Those Nihungs have a wealth of knowledge too.

Good point!  Belonging to a Punjabi background and being born into Sikhi, I forget that all races and ethnicities could potentially become Khalsa.  Tadpole in a small pond mentality sometimes kicks in.

    • We need to squarely face that given our current numbers, we'll have to deal with 'economies of scale' so we'll be unlikely to be able to sell at prices comparable to similar mass produced mainstream items that have a large consumer base. I think the above sells at around £20 for instance. I'd say we have enough exemplar career types right now, we need to connect kids to their heritage more than this in whichever way we can.  You point about relatability depends on where the kids are growing up and the character of Sikhs around them.  I don't know about the current generation, but in the recent past there were strong, brave Sikhs who confronted things like race attacks etc., so it shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Plus I noticed that a lot of Sikhs seem overtly 'nerdy' in the US - outright braces, cheesy gormless grins and bifocals - parents should take take to sharpen them out of this at a young age if they can. Was talking to someone who was thinking of trying produce some kids books, andthe point about have puerile, non-based sakhis came out, the conclusion was that such works need to incorporate a slight gritty dark edge to avoid the kids turning into unrealistic lulloos when older.  Been thinking about that graphic novel I posted about previously, it's such a shame that the diaspora panth (who would be the main consumers) couldn't forkout the £9000 being asked for. That's like £3000 each from the UK, US and Canada - where we all know we have plenty of loaded apnay. If anyone reading is one of these loaded apnay - please support and fund these things and maybe have one less flash motor or slightly less designer clothes. 
    • They are identify culturally Hindu but non-believers in God. Usually liberal brahmins psychos in India journalists, Gandhi supporters.  noticed too with Punjabi left liberal journalists too anti Sikh but religion in Panjabi
    • Those toys of regular jobs aren't profitable from a purely business perspective. When have western toys been relatable to bache?
    • Yeah, typical of self-hating Sikhs to kvetch and squirm about our martial heritage at a time when we proudly stood on our own.  Instead, let's glorify being nameless cogs in the Western apparatus that looks at us sideways while glorifying their preferred pet minorities. Nothing wrong with worldly jobs at all, but it's hardly something to get little kids inspired about their history.
    • Very strange. At that age why would he go after his wife with such force? Unless she'd made his life unbearable behind closed doors for their entire life together, and he just snapped?
