Harmandir Sahib Toshakhana

Recommended Posts

You can see some of the bungas around Harmandir Sahib from the Khalsa raj. Demolishing them was a stupid thing to do! they formed a defense, that was the primary purpose. Demolishing them and constructing the wide entranced clock tower only made it easy for the army to invade and bring tanks in!

You can see a man selling flowers as well, not sure how far back this went, but during the Sikh empire there used to be people selling flower garlands at Harmandir Sahib. 

wow the recording quality was so good!

Movies like Lawrence of Arabia were recorded to high quality equivalent to 8k/4k I believe.

 

I wonder if the movie you posted was recorded to such a high quality?

They restored the movie and released it again a few years back. 

Quite a dull movie imo! watched it a few years back, but they show a lot of old Gurdware, and beautifully sung shabds.

yes but they restored it to a higher quality than what we would have gotten on our home equipment last century!

They must have recorded the movie using high quality film, and it's nice they had it handy to restore to something like 720p or maybe even higher?

would be nice to see a blu ray release!

it would be a blu-ray I would watch!

Also thanks for the link, I will try and cut it for my tiktok and instagram. I wonder if I can get away with posting the clip on youtube as well without getting. a copyright notice?

Do you make videos? what's your youtube channel? 

Not sure if they will let you, I couldn't paste the video on here, only the link. But give it a go ...

Actually I have other channels where I make videos. 

I do have a youtube channel where I uploaded some paat from Hajur Sahib.

have uploaded 6 videos on there so far. Ongoing project is to get Sampooran Rehraas and Aarti videos on there where Raag instruments are used throughout, except maybe for Pauris and Chaupais etc Trying to cut and edit from various videos to achieve this

But I have created channels where I will be creating content for Tik Tok and instagram as well (and should go to facebook as well), as I have some experience of this. Also less copyright problems making clips on those platforms.

    • I'm shocked at the level of ignorant comments here. Dildos up their backsides? Kusrey? City people? First of all the reason they're called City Sikhs is because they work in the City of London, a financial district in Central London, it's got nothing to do with living in cities vs living in villages. 99% of Sikhs in the UK live in urban areas. That really went over the head of many people here. Do you expect them to look like UFC fighters?  Puzzled - can you tell me your level of education and what you do for a living?
    • I guess if it is OK for recently arrived Punjabis to settle down with East European women and have Sikh kids then there is nothing wrong in settling down with a Chinese woman. The Chinese are ultimately a dharmic people (if we take the current political situation out of the question) and have always been interested in what happens west of their border.  
    • Tbh, even "our own" can't be trusted. I personally stopped giving a damn what other people thought a long time ago, especially when it comes to rishta/marriage. 
    • In ultimate truth time is an illusion (Akal). All there is, is present the now. God created itself in many forms to create contrast ( limiting itself in forms)
    • There is a massive difference between the Sikh experience in the UK vs the US. The UK is a much better place to be a Sikh. The biggest difference-maker is population density. According to the 2011 census, there were (at the time) about 432,000 Sikhs in the UK. Accounting for some population growth and uncounted people (such as illegal immigrants), there are probably at least 500,000 Sikhs in the UK today. Now take into consideration that the UK has a population of about 67 million crammed into a relatively small island. And also consider that most of the Sikhs live in certain parts of the UK that have relatively large Sikh populations (e.g. West London, Birmingham area, etc.). There are not official figures on Sikhs in the US, but based on data about people from and Indian background and Punjab-speaking background, 250,000 is probably a very conservative upper bound on the US Sikh population. And then consider that the US is a massive country and has a population of about 330 million. As a consequence, Sikhs are much less visible and much less powerful (as a community) in the US than they are in the UK. In the UK, I feel like most people have an awareness of who Sikhs are. When I have been in the UK, it is a bit of a relief to not feel like I have to constantly point out that I'm not an Arab or a Muslim. In the US, nobody had a clue what a Sikh was when I was growing up. It is getting a bit better now, but it's still not great.   Anyway, aside from how Sikhs are viewed by the general population, I think the population density of Sikhs is most important for the Sikh community itself. It makes for a greater support system for more religiously inclined Sikhs. Further, the critical mass enables people who don't come from religious families to nevertheless gain exposure to Sikhi and get into it as they grow older. That's probably why examples of monay who become Singhs are much more frequent in the UK than in the US.
