I remember a sakhi which I heard on those dharmic cassette tapes from back then. This is from around 2001/2002.  So I was a kid and dnt remember all of it.

I think it was set around the time of either Guru Ram Das ji or Guru Arjan Dev Ji.  It was about a old man who couldn't walk or function much and he would lay on the manjha all day, coughing. He would constantly tell his son and daughter in law to help him and do this for him and do that for him e.g. 

His son and daughter in law got fed up of him and started deciding what to do with him. The son then decided to throw him into a river and get rid of him once and for all. As he was old and sick he wouldn't be able to swim out anyway and would drown, which is what the plan was.

So the son put the old man on his back and carried him to the river. Once he got to the river he carried the old man on his arms and was about to throw him in. Just b4 he was about to throw him in the old man said " dnt throw me just here, throw me a little further up but not too far, throw me just in the middle" and the son said why is that? And the old man said "well this is where I threw my own father when he got old, while further down is where your son will throw you when you get old,  so throw me in the middle" 

The son then swung the old man onto his back and carried him back home.

Waheguru.

I heard a story similar to this where 2 men went to a village to work. On the way back from work they stopped overnight. One of the men got greedy and deicided to kill the other man and take his money he had worked for.

Years later the man got married and had a boy. The boy was constantly ill and couldn't get better. The man spent money on medicine etc to make his son better but to no use. When his son was lying on his bed ill, the man said to him that he's spent so much money on him but he isn't getting better. The son asked how much have you spent, to which his dad replied the amount. The son then replied thats how much you took from me after you killed me and now you have repaid it, and passed away.

    • gonna take the opposite side here and say the following; This is not comparable to the Jerusalem thing because the majority of citizens in Turkey support this and don't see it as wrong. The Mosque was first a church then became a mosque then museum and mosque again. In Jerusalem the situation is that one side of population is for it the other side is against and the area of dispute is still being used by both groups. In Turkey there is no worshippers to use it as a church no one is being oppressed if its turned into a mosque. but in Jerusalem people will be oppresed and in india with the ram mandir ppl were oppressed 
    • These weddings are like Royal Ascot for our ladies. It is just one giant peacock show. If they could get away with hats and tiaras they would. The Anand Karaj traditionally did not have a lot of people and most of the people who go to them would rather be at the reception.  I think what has happened is that typically in the west the darbar hall is a much bigger. In Punjabi typically they have never been that large. I think (my wacky theory), our gurdwarae in the west have inadvertently  have taken the design of the church. The darbar hall become long and rectangular like a church hall with Maharaj being right at the end of the darbar hall like a church alter.  This has made the Anand Karaj into a Church Wedding Service and you try to fill in as many people in as possible. The only reason a lot of people come is for the chat and mithai.  Most darbar halls in Punjab and probably rest of India are more square in shape and Maharaj tends to be more centrally located.  I think darbar hall for anand karaj's should be much smaller (which with many gurdwarae who have extra halls, they generally are) but they should may limit the number of people (with Covid-19 this maybe the case). They need to cut back on those speakers (they are completely irrelevant) Also do we need ragis at the Anand Karaj? Most Anand Karajs traditionally in Punjab never had them, it seems to be another western invention. Another western invention is the brothers helping the bride. Is there a reason for this? Typically an Anand Karaj should last 15-20 minutes not over 2 hours.    
    • David Wood has made some excellent points here about this issue.  Muslims have lost the moral argument after today. Erdegan has proven that when Islamists are in a position of power they will abuse that position. They lost the right to complain about Ram Mandir that will be re built at Ayodhya by Hindus or when the Jews will eventually rebuild their temple at the site of Al Aqsa. Muslims have shot themselves in the foot on this one.
    • I've always thought about that! Aurangzeb wanted darshan of Guru Ji after reading the letter. There could be a possibility of that happening. Imagine if he actually met Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji! How would history look afterwards? 
    • We know Aurangzeb was so moved by the Zafarnama that he sought Darshan of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. You ever wonder if he made the mistake of voicing to his entourage he intended to convert to Sikhi and it wasn't natural health decline that prevented the darshan?
