  1. Oh, okay. I do love some spicy food though. Bhai ji I experiment with diets and for the last long while I tried a lowish carb diet and it works well for me. It keeps me lean and toned. You should do juicing sometimes if you can. It's a really good way to get loads of nutrients in you. Mix them up, have some karela, an apple, a little ginger, celery, carrots, cucumber. Yeah!!
  2. Veera I believe a lot of our pendu brothers could actually live a decent quality life out there. Better than the one many of our brothers here in certain urban areas do anyway. For a lot of them, I think going abroad is more about 'keeping up with the Jonese' than genuine poverty.
  3. Absolutely. But until Panjab itself sorts out its economy and makes itself into a prosperous place of opportunity this won't end. Apnay over there need to take on the task of investing into and developing the state themselves. There is plenty of money for development through Gurdwara donations alone. I think it's a mentality thing over there?
  4. I heard from faujis themselves that donkey bohoth gundhay nay.
  5. Notice the difference in interpretations. In one the princess throws the sorma in her dad's eyes, but in the other uses the sorma to disguise the lover (as a janani). Overall though, this chariter is relatively straightforward. The women is sexually attracted to the goldsmith who is in very good physical shape. This one gives a very good account of female psychology. Note how the original uses the word ਮੂੜ to describe the father. The chariter is essentially telling us that fathers should be aware of what their daughters are doing, and those that aren't are fools. Notice that there are no sensational deaths either.
  6. Happy Vasaikhi everyone!
  7. Can we really eat chilli raw all the time? hmmmm You're making me want to eat prontay (which I haven't in years).....lol You've got a good point though. Although some foods do retain their medicinal qualities after being cooked like say karela.
  8. This guy isn't claiming that veer ji. He's saying his family is doing good back home. Most faujis that come here aren't poor backhome (to Indian standards) in my opinion. A lot of them love the status and lifestyle out here. They could live relatively comfortable lives back home if they wished. Those that are genuinely poor and desperate are probably stuck out there and have no chance of getting out.
  9. I always like growing cayenne chillies. Gives me even more incentive now. Could spicy food offer hope in tackling cancer? Tests show compound that gives chili peppers their kick can slow down the progression of lung cancer Researchers based at Marshall University examined the effects of capsaicin They discovered the compound stopped the first step of cancer metastasis Only one in ten patients is still alive five years after their lung cancer diagnosis This is because the illness has often spread elsewhere - known as metastasis They're known for being spicy and giving your meal a little kick. But now scientists say chili peppers may have more use than just adding some fire to a curry - and could even tackle cancer. Tests have suggested capsaicin, the compound that gives chili peppers their kick, may the disease from spreading Researchers at Marshall University, West Virginia, examined the effects of capsaicin on three types of cancer cell in the laboratory. The team of scientists discovered the compound stopped the first step of cancer spreading, known as metastasis. And tests on mice battling metastatic cancer found those who consumed capsaicin had smaller areas of aggressive cancer cells in their lung. Further trials showed capsaicin suppressed lung cancer metastasis by blocking a protein that plays a role in cell growth, called Src. The findings were presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Investigative Pathology in Orlando, Florida. Jamie Friedman, a PhD candidate who led the study, said: 'Lung cancer and other cancers commonly metastasize to secondary locations like the brain, liver or bone, making them difficult to treat. 'Our study suggests that the natural compound capsaicin from chili peppers could represent a novel therapy to combat metastasis in lung cancer patients.' Mr Friedman added: 'We hope that one day capsaicin can be used in combination with other chemotherapeutics to treat a variety of lung cancers. WHAT IS LUNG CANCER? Lung cancer is one of the most common and serious types of cancer. There are 46,400 cases of lung cancer in Britain each year and 35,500 deaths, making it the biggest cancer killer. In the US, around 230,000 new diagnoses are made each year, while the disease kills around 140,000 people. Most patients who get lung cancer, which is often symptomless in its earliest stages, are smokers or former smokers. There are usually no signs or symptoms in the early stages of lung cancer, but many people with the condition will eventually develop symptoms. Only one in ten patients is still alive five years after their diagnosis because the illness has often spread elsewhere, figures suggest. Source: NHS Choices 'However, using capsaicin clinically will require overcoming its unpleasant side effects, which include gastrointestinal irritation, stomach cramps and a burning sensation.'

It is not the first time researchers have found capsaicin – a form of vanilloid – has cancer-fighting properties. Scientists say it triggers a cell receptor called TRPV1 which controls which substances the cancerous growth can feed on. As it fights to battle this, the growth eventually self-destructs. As more and more cancer cells die, the tumour is stopped from growing larger. Other experiments have found the family of compounds capsaicin belongs to can kill cancer cells by attacking their powerhouse, the mitochondria. But experts have repeatedly warned that it is unlikely just eating lots of spice alone could help to combat any form of cancer. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6898633/Spicy-food-offer-hope-tackling-cancer.html
  10. Yeah I agree. Unless it explicitly mentioned Sikhs he wouldn't have put it in. I think things might have gone quiet in that period between Banda SIngh and the 1750s. Singh's must have been operating in gupt, and consolidating themselves. I've got that "Sicques Tigers and Thieves" somewhere.
  11. Was this in J.S.Grewal's Persian Sources book?
  12. Hmmm...why would Zakira Khan ask for the release of the Indian prisoners? Where these the people he kidnapped to try and build a city in Persia?
