I get why these people move abroad, my parents did the same after they couldn't find a well paying job even through they worked their arses off for their degrees. But I feel like instead of running away from the problem, which is what is happening, and glorifying it in the name of the Punjabi entertainment, why not fix it.

 

At least you know some people working hard for degrees. The type of youth I've met in Panjab just pay to pass their exams to get certificates so they end up with a useless certificate and no knowledge, and they waste their parents money in cities watching movies with bf/gf's or at  big shopping malls etc.

One of mine had a great job but moved due to family pressure. I hope to move to Panjab one day. 

Family pressure? Wow. A lot of my extended family are pretty rich and have really good jobs and connections so they're staying there for another couple of generations. 

I'm not looking to move back to Punjab cause I've seen the mentalities of the people and the way they think, tbh I'm so grateful my parents moved here or otherwise I probably would have been surrounded by these brainwashed people and become like them. However, if everything goes well, I am looking to go to Punjab and potentially open up an industry or a business there to create jobs. Also looking to do seva with the Sikhs in full poverty, esp those who suffered a lot from 1984.

Oh the people that have moved abroad as young people in my family have been repaying their parents back and been working pretty hard abroad to pay for themselves. It's sad to see the kids not taking any responsibilities or becoming independent. We're not going to get anywhere if our majority can't look after themselves.

I want to do some seva in Panjab too.

I noticed this was the case with older immigrants who were much more responsible. Ones these days are sometimes a burden on parents.

    • 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.
