Excellent new documentary on lost Sikh heritage

Sangat ji Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh!

I came across a new documentary on the lost Sikh heritage in Pakistan. It is about the journey of one Amardeep Singh, an author/filmmaker as he explores the historical Gurdwaras in Pakistan, apart from the commonly known and famous Panja Sahib, Kartarpur Darbar Sahib and Nankana Sahib. 

He really went deep into the rural areas of Pakistan to document the Gurdwaras that our ancestors had to leave behind in 1947. Looking at the some of the buildings and listening to the stories really hit me in the feels lol. Apart from this, we can also see how much sharda the Nanakpanthis have towards SGGS ji, something some of us so-called Sikhs can learn from.

I highly recommend you watch it..also there are some other videos on his channel as well..haven't watched anything else yet. Thought I'd share this first.

It's an excellent documentary and it is good that he went into areas which are outside the normal Sikh pilgrim circle. One of the things which stands out is how well built these Gurdwaras are and also their size even in the villages. Now compare that with the small Mosques that the Muslims left behind in the East Punjab villages. The disparity between the Sikhs and the Muslims in 1947 is clearly shown when you compare their respective places of worship.

    • No but hunger and homelessness are problems today which is why I think @shastarSingh is interested in a variety of things the Paanth could grow, make, forage or hunt that would benefit them and positively impact their lifestyle. Cotton doesn't grow everywhere. So if somebody has a mind to grow their own clothes, or create an export product, interest in hemp makes sense.  Put your mind to trying to sustain Jatahas in varying climates from scratch, for self determination or to survive unrest and you'll get his vibe more I think. 
    • Have you read the side effects of pharma? Have you never seen a class action lawsuit against pharma? Have you never heard of pharma faking or bypassing safety and legislative measures? I'd take insulin if I was diabetic in conjunction with all holistic measures.  I'm not against medicine bro practiced properly. That's only a percentage of the medicine practiced however.  Nobody is debating the efficacy of stitches. Nobody goes schizo from Sukha either bro. You're reefer mad. 
    • We live in the 21st Century!  Nihung Singhs bana is made from cotton as it always was.  Nihung Singhs to this day do not use hemp for dietary needs.  Nihung Singhs do not live in houses made from hemp.     Marijuana also carries the risk of triggering one the worst diseases ‘schizophrenia’ losing your mind.  This disease is no good for any Tyar bey Tyar Singh.    The biggest ninda is when you make rituals out practices that were a part of our glorious warriors day to day life.  Indulging in these practices when one not living the life of Nihung Singh is ninda.
    • I have personally never seen any young Nihung Singh excel from using Cannabis but you can’t take my personal encounters and discount anybody’s medical findings regarding the use.  The same should apply to you when you make claims about your encounter with schizophrenia.  The fact is that Cannabis does have a link to psychosis and schizophrenia and this is backed up by research. Regarding modern pharma and negative affects, this is too deep to even converse on.  I do know that when Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj was injured from a wound inflicted by a dagger, a European Surgeon was given the task to tend the wound.  For that time you could say that this was the use of modern medical practice.  I also know that Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj also possessed modern weapons.  This tells us that our Guru was in favour of modern warfare as well as modern medical practices. So my question to you is why are you afraid of modern medicine and why are you on the path to making a ritual of preserving something that was used for specific scenarios of the time. 
    • Who cares when Sukha works and the pharma kills you. At the least reefer madness kids didn't judge you as you died? I've never heard or seen Sukha exacerbate anyone's schizophrenia and infact the schizophrenics I worked with were taking oral cbd solution three times daily.   Have you ever read the known side effects of pharma?
