A basic question for kakkars

Recommended Posts

Guest cyclistsingh

Hi,

I am an avid road cyclist. For cycling seriously you have to wear padded shorts or bib shorts, they look something like this: https://podia.cc/shop/club-bib-shorts-regular/

These are not ordinary shorts. They are padded and they allow you to sit for long hours on the saddle, without them cycling for long distances is impossible. Forget even short distances.

Therefore, wearing kacherra is not possible. Can the bib shorts be considered a substitute kacchera if wore one leg in and out. Also wearing kirpan, kungha is not possible while cycling. Well kungha might be possible. However, you do need to wear a helmet to take part in cycling events.

I'd like to know if it is possible to even continue with cycling while being amritdhari. When I say cycling I am not talking about the casual neighbourhood rider. I am talking about serious cycling with professional gear.

Best,

Hey,

I do long-distance running and wear compression legging under kachera for it. I know what you mean Re comfort!

Professional cycling is a specialist thing. For training or 'race day' get dressed in your cycle gear however you need to. The Guru knows you are not breaking your faith in him or his maryada. Because after race you put your 5ks back on.

Anyone who wants to discourage you - get lost. 

A Sikh professional cyclist - that will be very cool, do us proud bro!

Wear your kachera over the club shorts. 

 

Why can't you wear a kirpan? If you really can't. You can always wear a Dori wali kirpan if you are really stuck

 

Kangha even if you couldn't put in your head, could easily go in a pocket?

You can wear the necklace that has a kirpan and kanga. For the kacherra you can try to make a small one that clings to your body more. If not just do a rdas before and after riding your bike that youre taking off your kakar and please forgive me

    • Guru sahib supported people marrying in the same biradhri because they came from the same background and lifestyle. Even in charitropakhyan mahraj gives lessons that you should marry ppl of same age, background etc. one lesson is an old guy cant keep a young woman for long 
    • Exactly, we only know his perspective and its telling that any nonbiased person would start to feel bad for her. It doesnt matter if your gay, be a good husband and talk to her and trust her. If you cant trust her because shes done something in the past then I understand the apprehension. But without that it seems youre just insecure 
    • We can only hope. 😅😂 Seriously, I think you're absolutely correct to a certain degree on a surface level, but you make it seem like all these events are organic in origin and execution. I would argue there's an element of planning and organisation that goes into these world-changing events. I definitely don't think there's anything of accident or chance when it comes to the major events in "recent" (post-Enlightenment) human history (including wars, social upheaval, social and political movements and policies, even down to smaller issues such as those affecting cultural and artistic endeavours that shape the human consciousness, etc). We do not stumble from unknown event to another unknown event, hoping we work it out along the way. I think this management and direction of events is becoming obvious and clear to a great percentage of humanity compared to previous decades and centuries. Whether this awakening of sorts is a natural part of the yugic cycle, or it's something more mystically directed is difficult to know.
    • Yeah that was the key to success, Jats refused to accept a position which would of naturally been near the bottom and rebelled against the Bamhans, and there wasn't much Bamhans could of done. The fact that Punjab had more of a flexible biradari system rather than the traditional Varna system and order also probably helped Jatts. Punjabi Gujjars are another group which refused to be pushed around by Bamhans. By 1760-ish most of Punjab was ruled under the Sikh misls who were mainly jatts. Bhangis(Dhillon), Kanheya(Sandhus), Singhia(Dhaliwals) etc ..  They also held the Afghans at bay.  It's a shame that most are rather sloppy now than rebellious, the 80s and 90s was the last time we saw any major rebellion.    Rajputs pretty much went with whoever the ruling party was.  
    • I think men get lazy when there are no problems, and that's when women take over. Like in this country look what the men were like during the 40s and then the 50s when they were rebuilding the country, and once that was out of the way then look what happened in the 60s, it was s3x, drugs etc women began the sexual revolution and started wearing skirts above their ears etc. What do you think the world will be like after WW3 ?  Women will pretty much be back at square one and expected to marry young and reproduce lots of kids, men will be like how men were a couple of decades back.  Post a major world war feminism will be a very distant memory imo
