It would be nice to see more apne participants rather than presenters and dancers. 

This year Punjab had the second highest number of participants in the Commonwealth Games from India, 1st was Haryana. 

Haryana, Punjab contribute most medallists to India's tally at CWG 2022

Haryana and Punjab contributed as many as 46 medal-winners to India's tally at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The main Bhangra guy at the Commonwealth Games was "Apache Indian", his real name is Steven Kapur. 

He's not really a bhangra guy, more reggae.

 

And can you lot stop defending our lot prancing around like colourful apes at any opportunity please. Peasants need to be having this conversation amongst themselves as top priority. You're defining Sikhs through this shyte.  

 

And let's put it out there: It's jut men encouraging apneean on stages to entertain people. This would never have happened when I was younger.

I'm not defending anyone, I don't support this. Neither do I support casteism or vile language towards any group.

If I'm doing a dirty but necessary job, don't anyone pull me up for it. I shouldn't even need to, jut men should be the ones making the most noise and at the forefront, but the vast majority of them (not saying all!) want to do exactly this type of jaloose given the opportunity, and they are dragging the females into it too.

It's not the 'vast majority', less than half definitely. 

Related to this topic, can anyone please tell me what our Gurus have said about listening to music and dancing?

Thanks

What makes it worse is how these Punjabi women dance these days, mimicking the men with their hands in the air, stomping their feet on the ground. At least the giddha from back in the day had some feminine qualities to it. 

They'll start identifying as bandhe soon enough.

Trans-bhangra. ?

Some of the 'taakhree' aunties I saw doing authentic giddah when I was a kid.......phew. I'll never forget. There wasn't much feminine about it, trust me.

I'm shocked the floorboards held out. 

 

But the point should be made. Panjabi culture as I saw it growing up, the blokes was in one room drinking and stuff and the jananis in another doing giddah to a dholki (which one women always knew how to play). There weren't any exhibition going on.

Don't know about that. Even the old stuff looks naff to me:

Then, whilst apnay and apneean are doing this vacuous stuff what other stuff that would actually genuinely help to develop them (and by virtue of connection, the panth) are they missing out on?

I only really like the Jhoomer tbh, but I think the modern stuff is just silly. Women doing bhangra is pretty weird too ngl.

    • Russistan Zindabad! 😅
    • 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.
