  1. Is it this quote ? ; 'There was talk of such a science of archery and stick fighting only a few years ago in the Punjab that listening of it the English-educated young men will consider it astonishing. In sincerity I believe present day young men might just consider these skills and Shastar Vidiya most likely impossible, because they have not even seen those bows nevermind stringing them. Like this, many sciences and skills after attaining their heights have declined. Before 1857 many quivers full of arrows, matchlocks, flintlock guns, swords, lances, spears, Sang, Katar, Pesh Kabz, pistols, shields etc., weapons, armour and many types of chainmail was found house to house, and all the people in their homes learned and taught Shastar Vidiya and became complete soldiers. Now no one even speaks of these skills the sons of brave warriors are becoming engrossed in making money, even to us who have employed Shastar Vidiya, it is becoming a dream. In another fifty years or so, this Vidiya would have dried up and people will say it (past skills) were but, all lies' ('Twarikh Guru Khalsa', Giani Gian Singh Nirmala (1899) Vol.1, Pa. 36-37) I've attached a scan of the relevant pages from the third edition (1993)

  13. Oh and that Gutka has pictures from the article too.

  14. Try to get ahold of Namdhari Nitnem Gutka from 1992 published by Maharaj Bir Singh ji. it cites an article of Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha on types of turban and what is sidhi and tedi dastaar. Bhai Kahn Singhji also mentions in his own words that his father and grandfather also used to wear sidhi dastaar. i dont have the said Gutka with me. i read it once as someone had brought it to the Dharamsala.

  15. Dear Fateh Singh Ji, (Ashik Ashik Har Koi Kahai, Sir Tedi Pagree Dhar Ke - Kavi Bihari Ji, kavi of Guru Gobind Singh) Do you have a reference for the 'Tedi Pagree' line - I have been looking for it for a while. Many Thanks in advance Ranjit Singh
