Why is that a problem? Wouldnt you want to move to a place with high population of sikhs? 

I settled my life here and most of my family and friends are here now. I have migrated to Australia and I know how hard it is to Start from the scratch, no energy to migrate to new place again. I am happy here and I made my future plans here according to my current life here. hope you understand what I mean.

I am gursikh guy over 30 now and finding really hard to find an Amritdhari girl in Australia. 

if I search any other country than India, then Moving from Australia becomes the  problem. 

Veer if you can find an Amritdhari girl in Australia or New Zealand then great. But you also should keep your options open with non-Amritdhari or Hindu Punjabi matches who do not drink alcohol and eat meat and are willing to progress in Sikhi with you in the future.

Young ladies from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the UK could well open to moving to Australia too (but focus locally as Melbourne is the Sikh stronghold in Australia). Obviously in India there is a shortage of women to imbalanced gender leaving many Amritdhari men without spouses in Punjab. So whilst Punjab may be a good bet for you on an individual level it does in turn leave another Amritdhari Bhai less chance (if people continue to insist upon Amritdhari or Sikh spouses). The Sikh population's fertility rate is now below replacement level in Punjab due to so many Amritdhari men not giving consideration to non-Amritdhari or non-Sikh spouse.

Hi I am also having the same trouble veerji. I am from Sydney and to explain the situation to others, Australia now is like the UK in the 60s, ie many young first generation migrants on student visa are the majority of the Sikh community.

Yes true the Sikh community in Australia has a much younger demographic but there are older Sikh women in their 30's looking for spouses in UK (and India) if you are finding it difficult to find someone in Australia. Melbourne community is bigger than Sydney.

Mate, I'm in the same boat in the UK, and I'm 33. It is indeed hard, and i sympathise with you greatly. And I do share your apprehensions about India. 

I know friends who found luck searching online (Shaadi.com etc.). I guess it's just about casting a wide net.

Good luck Veer. Even though Sikhs should be getting married ideally between the ages of 21-24 or 25-29 at the very latest in order to statistically have more and healthier children with less difficulty in becoming parents, please don't think you are alone and don't limit yourself in terms of possible choice. From what I remember AkaliFauj, DallySingh101, Ranjeet01 are all older than you too so this is clearly a big problem in the Diaspora where 99% or more of folks are non-Sikhs. Meanwhile by the time our Sikh grooms and brides get married our Pakistani Punjabi counterparts are becoming grandparents!

Essentially it is better for Singhs to marry non-Amritdhari girls or non-Sikh girls than remain unmarried forever.

Hopefully you find someone local as the the phenomenon of Sikh men going to back to Punjab is in turn causing a problem for Diaspora women who are finding a corresponding shortage of Sikh men (just like Sikh men are finding in Punjab due to the gender imbalance and Sikh females marrying NRI's)

I think the Hajoor Sahib sikh families are a great example of Singhs settling in the area by marrying girls not from Singh families, actually from hindu families, and those women becoming sikhnis! And at the the same time, they are really good at preserving rehit whereas punjabi sikhs are currently poor at keeping rehit including those who call themselves as amrit-dharis or gursikhs!

      VJKK VJKF I am planning on enrolling in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes soon. I have a few questions about how I could enrol while planning on taking Amrit. How would I keep rehit of the kakkars while practising my skills without hurting my opponent in the gym? Back when I was younger I enrolled in Taekwondo and they usually told me to take off my kara so I would not hurt my opponent while sparring. Currently my only solution is keeping my kara and a small kard or kirpan in my Kes, but this also raises another question. If I tied a normal or commando style patka, they are quite stable, but my kakkars would probably rip the cloth. I’m not going to wear a Dumala unless it it my last option because I would prefer something light weight while sparring, and during sports I have seen many Dumale fall off. What style should I wear that is stable enough for getting thrown around but not getting loose?   Thanks.
    • Make no mistake about it, we are at a cross road. Every other last community is shaking off their colonial baggage. You see this coming from everywhere. We need it even more than others because our lot were so deeply entwined in this previously.  And it brought us nothing but death and destruction and losses. 
    • Situation escalating, wonder how long there will be similar in USA, Canada and UK @Kaurr @5aaban https://www.news.com.au/finance/economy/why-proindia-supports-clashed-with-sikhs-at-melbournes-federation-square/news-story/9b842c48d5c3142733727dd370ef71dc Why Pro-India Supports clashed with Sikhs at Melbourne’s Federation Square An ugly clash in the heart of Melbourne between two Indian ethnic groups erupted last weekend with up to 100 people embroiled in the fracas – but what started it? Rebecca Borg   @rebeccaaborg   4 min read February 1, 2023 - 9:22AM   Over the weekend, a Melbourne landmark became the centre of an ugly clash between two Indian ethnic groups in scenes rarely seen in Australia. Footage posted to social media captured the moment about 100 people broke out into a fight, using flags as weapons outside Federation Square on Sunday afternoon. The brawl, which broke out at about 4.30pm, occurred during a referendum event organised by US-based group Sikhs for Justice, who are campaigning to create a separate Sikh-majority state called Khalistan in India’s Punjab region. The state of Punjab was established in 1947 when the partition of India split the former Raj province of Punjab – which was previously under British rule – between India and Pakistan when the two countries gained their independence. But because Khalistan will take away land from parts of Punjab less than a century on from its emergence, pro-India activists are against the movement creating a rivalry between the two groups. An ugly clash in the heart of Melbourne between two Indian ethnic groups erupted last weekend with up to 100 people embroiled in the fracas. Dozens of Sikhs were spotted lining up to vote in the early hours of Sunday. Picture: Twitter/@Lekha250913991 So when a group of pro-India supporters arrived at the Khalistan referendum in Melbourne on Sunday, a usually family-friendly Federation Square became the centre of a wild brawl which left two men injured and innocent bystanders scrambling for safety. As police investigations continue, many questions have been raised by concerned community members about the groups involved and what led to the confronting scenes. Here’s news.com.au’s deep dive into the situation.   Why were these ethnic groups at Federation Square? Prior to the brawl, the day commenced peacefully as dozens of voters taking part in the referendum were seen queuing outside Federation Square from 8.30am. “The purpose of the referendum was to exercise the democratic right given to all humans by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of freedom of speech and expression,” Jaswinder Singh, CEO of Sikh Volunteers Australia told news.com.au. Melbourne’s referendum event was one of several non-binding referendums that have occurred globally in recent years, with others being held in the UK, Italy, Canada and Switzerland. It’s anticipated more will be hosted across Australian cities in some time. “By conducting a non-binding referendum in the whole world among the Sikh population, Sikhs want to convince the United Nations and the Western World that a binding referendum must be conducted in Punjab to liberate it from Indian occupancy,” Mr Singh said. Sikhs were asked to answer this yes or no question as part of the referendum. Picture: Twitter / @HindolSengupta Those taking part in the referendum were asked the yes-or-no question: “Should Indian Governed Punjab be an independent country?”. After submitting their vote, Sikhs around the polling place were seen waving Khalistan flags while sporting the colours yellow and blue. Voting was open until 5pm that evening. At the same time, it’s believed a small pro-India group who practiced Hinduism were protesting near the Botanical Gardens. At about 4.30pm, pro-India members who allegedly came from the Botanical Gardens protest, were spotted at Federation Square waving their national flag. While it’s still unclear what exactly caused the brawl, a violent clash soon broke out with members of both parties using their flags as weapons while others were forced to flee to safety. The larger altercation came just hours after a smaller dispute in the same area which Victoria Police said occurred shortly after midday.            
    • The problem is that apne think they have made it in life if they move to a gora area.  Likewise suls love to flock to where apne are, no apna ever moves to a predominantly sul area in this day and age.
