Most of my family that's going abroad is like that. Even the ones that are not into sikhi know their boundaries. 

Which area in Punjab are these people from? The people I'm talking about are from the majha area, and some of them are near Mehta chownk.

They're found all around Panjab.

I'm from Australasia but I've lived there for extended periods of time so I'm comfortable with the lifestyle. 

How long have you stayed for one time, if that's okay to ask ? And how much of your adult life ?

What do your immediate family think ?

How many Hindu Panjabis have you met in Aus ?

Be careful. Just this morning I was talking to a pal of mine and she told me about some HP she's met (whose young daughter is school friends with her daughter). This women apparently married an apna desi guy whose been here since the 80s. She's been disowned by her own family (mainly brothers), and then she's found out that her husband has got a lot of issues including opiate addiction. The women sounds broken by it all. 

This seems a little like that Geeta Aulakh who was in the news. 

And, if I can ask how do you find HP and Sikh Panjabis get on in your experience? I have not met that many, and we don;t have any family friends who are? I mean normal, not the wealthy rich business types you've met here. 

The few I've met range from feeling they are Hindu but Sikhs and Hindus are very similar/the same, to those who feel distinct as Hindus and see Hindus and Sikhs separately. And, I think the men are more likely to be close/friends with Sikh men here than the women are

@Punjabiwolves is someone I like who posts here from time to time.

If I lived in australia I'd be leaving too. 

How come bro ?!!

What don't you like about it ? It's a big country, and there are inter-state differences like in the US, but the culture seems more homogenous

    • 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.
