  1. The only difference from what I read above, in comparison to slave ships from Africa, is that the goray didn't have women to rape on the ships.
  2. I've been after the original Gurmukhi text of this manuscript, which is supposed to be contemporary to dasmesh pita, for years with no luck. Anyone know where I can get it? I got an English translation but want the original text. Any help appreciated.
  3. That's a great idea. I think given weapon restrictions in the UK, this could be more easily implemented in the US and Canada. What guy wouldn't want to do a lot of this stuff! (Only the kudhu lazy, docile type I imagine).
  4. Sikh and Punjabi culture different: Takht Jathedar AMRITSAR: Differentiating between Sikh and Punjabi cultures, the Akal Takht jathedar sought cancellation of cases registered against 9 Sikh youths held for vandalising the platform of Punjabi folk dancers's statues on the Heritage Street leading to the Golden Temple. The revamped street -- running from Town Hall building to the Golden Temple Plaza -- was unveiled in October 2016 during the fag-end of the tenure of the previous SAD-BJP government. The acting Jathedar of Akal Takht, Giani Harpreet Singh, said on Monday that Amritsar was the centre of Sikh religion and such statues should have not been installed in the 'Heritage Street'. "There is a difference between Sikh and Punjabi culture as the latter also covers Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims and people of all other religions living in Punjab, but the Sikh culture is distinct," he said. SGPC mum, Sikh bodies want dance statues shifted Virtually absolving the youths who damaged the statue platform of any wrongdoing, the jathedar termed the action as emotional and said they had only damaged the statues’ platform, not the statues. On January 15, a group of Sikh youths had tried to vandalise the statues of Giddha and Bhangra artistes. But before they could achieve their onjective, they were overpowered by police and booked under Section 307 (attempt to murder) of the IPC and Section 3 of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property (PDPP) Act. Despite the raging controversy over the statues, Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandhak Committee (SGPC) has kept mum over the issue. Even SGPC chief secretary Roop Singh has declined to comment on it. US-based Sikh bodies, Sikh Coordination Committee East Coast (SCCEC) and American Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (AGPC), held a meeting to condemn installation of Punjabi cultural statues on Heritage Street and demanded cancellation of cases against the Sikh youths. SCCEC coordinator Himmat Singh said the SCCEC and AGPC had held a teleconference on the issue and there was unanimity among them over it being a grave mistake to install these statues near Golden Temple. These organisations expressed solidarity with Sikh bodies fighting for the cause. Meanwhile, various Sikh bodies have convened a meeting on January 22 to mount pressure on the government to release the arrested youths and to shift the statues from the 'heritage street'. https://m.timesofindia.com/city/amritsar/sikh-and-punjabi-culture-different-takht-jathedar/amp_articleshow/73468164.cms
  5. Plus I would say they didn't exactly translate them, but rather adapted them to Sikh needs. They also created unique works which look like commentary on existing literary genres as well as serving didactic purposes. Charitrio Pakyaan is along these lines in my opinion. Other works like shaster naam mala seem to be tools to develop lateral thinking and encourage a respect for shasters/asters.
  6. There is a link to a book by Piara SIngh Padam about these kavis in the first post of this thread. Hope this helps. Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji De Darbari Ratan
  7. Two killers who took part in infamous gang-rape on board moving bus in India lose their appeal against their death sentences and are told they will hang next week Vinay Sharma and Mukesh Singh have lost appeals in India's Supreme Court They and two others on death row are due to be executed on January 22 Their 23-year-old victim died shortly after the attack in a case that shocked India Two of the Indian killers who took part in an infamous gang-rape on a moving bus have lost a final appeal against their death sentences. Vinay Sharma and Mukesh Singh were told they will be executed for the 2012 attack next week after the Supreme Court dismissed their plea to reconsider the sentence. Sharma, Singh and two others on death row are due to be hanged on January 22 unless the president grants clemency, which is considered unlikely. Sharma had claimed 'systemic and political bias' against him and said his family would suffer, but a five-judge panel rejected his claims, NDTV reported. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7885543/Two-killers-took-infamous-gang-rape-India-lose-death-sentence-appeal.html
  8. Thanks for that! Looks like a timber frame, which can then be wrapped up in brick afterwards! Hmmmm. I suspected as much. I don't think she'll use brick here though. Doesn't look like she's got the footings for it? Keep the pics coming if you don't mind. Thanks again!!
  9. I'm laying off it for a bit. I think it's drying me up a bit, want to take a smaller amount like half a teaspoon every two days.
  10. When you've seen builds, did they do the brickwork first, and then the inside. Or did they start the interior first and then wrap it up in bricks after?
  11. Have you ever seen a new house going up bro?
  12. Good, good, good. For some peculiar reason I had it in my head most houses are made of wood out there???
  13. The houses around you Singh (including yours) are they built using bricks?
  14. It seems to be stripping body fat off me? (Not that I have a lot of that) Like a thermogenic?
