Yeah I also "forget" to mention Jassa Singh Aluwawalia, Nawab Kapur Singh Virk, Baba Bhagel Singh etc and your point is? as you already very well know, I was responding to Ranjit on how Jatts refused to submit to Bahmans which was their key to success and this rebellion resulted in Jatts ruling most of Punjab from the 1760s, now why would I talk about anyone else if the discussion is about Jatt rebellion against Bamhans?
Why would the original poster talk about other castes when the video is about a Hindu Jatt convert, Manoj Singh, talking about how Sikhi would be a great solution for his community?
What does that tell us? well it tells your a bit off topic on this thread.
You forget to mention Bir Singh Ranghretta, who prior to the Misl period, ie Dal Khalsa, commanded one of 5 Dal's of the Dal Khalsa. What became of him? By the way, isn't it interesting that the original poster didn't suggest that we should appeal to so-called lower strata's of Hindu society to consider Sikhi as a path? What does that tell us?
Found this old article from the SYUK annual magazine. It's written by some Punjabi female who was in a relationship with a Gujarati guy, a live in relationship, around the same time people were protesting against interfaith marriages. Its not very often you read these kind of articles. She talks about all sorts, how her parents disapproved but still went along with it, a £2000 lengha which is just bonkers! and how she started falling out with her Gujju lover. She's obviously not a Sikh, just a regular moni, but its interesting a interesting article. I used to have these SYUK magazines, can't find them now.
You know when we were your age over 10 years ago everyone did the same back then as well. Boys and Girls meeting each up at Nagar Kirtans, boys organizing fights at Nagar Kirtans etc. And I'm pretty sure people who are in their mid 30s they did the same stuff when they were 15, and the middle aged lot who are now in their mid 40s they probably did the same too. 10 years from now when you'll be 25, the current toddlers they will be dong the same too.
It's not right, but my point is that this kind of behaviour happened every generation ...
Gurdwara for most people is a Punjabi centre while Nagar Kirtans are like carnivals, we just need the huge coloured ostrich feathers.
