Yeah, some of our indigenous culture has turned into some unrecognisable, out of control, embarrassing beast in the diaspora. The ostentation our lot frequently display is cringeworthy.......garish, superfluous - the very opposite of restrained. 

 

We need to get serious in an increasingly unpredictable world too. I mean look at these brothers currently in the US:

Rooftop Sikhs supporting Black Lives Matter while protecting their business

Black Lives won't matter a lot when they are getting looted.

Those rifles aren't shotguns, they look semi-automatic to me.

In parts of the US, with more Asian (East Asian as well as South Asian), Hispanic and other minorities will start to resent Black Lives Matter.

They will be asking questions and they won't fall for the 400 years of slavery/oppression line that is spouted on.

Does bhangra make you drive faster, or driving fast just makes turn the volume up higher  it's one or the other lol

That's another cringe-inspiring manifestation. 

 

The oafish young brother in his father's big ride, with a big Khanda hanging from his mirror, blaring monotonous bhangra down the road. I think people are getting clued up about how dumb this looks in eastside though.

Yeah, look like semi-autos. What has the brother on the left got wrapped around his nozzle though? 

Look, people have been ducking the race issue for way too long. It is going to come to a head globally, sooner or later. And African-Americans have always been at the forefront of this.

I use to think the obnoxious materialism was perhaps an exclusively Punjabi trait, but having dug a little deeper in recent months, I've realised it's very much an Indian trait regardless of regional geography. It just manifests in different forms according to the common cultural traits of the group in question. Unfortunately for us, it's all-too in your face, and difficult to avoid.

Yeah, and let's face it - it makes us look like dumb, charactertures of humans...........

Banned? You want it to be some kind of Saudi Arabian state?

I think the religious clergy might ban it lol    you normally see old men on sikh channels complaining and moaning about bhangra.  They've had their fun and now their moaning about it!!!

Why didn't Sikhi take off much in urban areas?

There are threads here on how to bring more people to Sikhi but even in Punjab we are heavily outnumbered in big cities like Ludhiana and Jalandhar. The vast majority of our population are villagers.

No wonder we do these village songs and dances.

The one that really does my head in is illiterates calling a Gurudwara, a Gaudhwara.

    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway. 
    • Because Naamdharis are absolute masters at kirtan. Simple. On the topic of Akal Takht, it doesn't really hold the same authority as it did in the past. Just look at the people running it and you'll get what I mean. Most the panth, outside of stuff like Tankhaya, don't care about anything they have to say.
