  1. Doesn't every last western white person not actually realise that this is what their society does as a norm politically? And have been doing for centuries. I know you'll get a few simple-minded 'special needs' type that truly can't see through the 'gorment' propaganda (like we didn't have hordes of these in our own community during the colonial period), but I'm pretty sure every last one of them outside of this knows what is going on and sort of keep an unspoken agreement to never speak of it. On another note, should our Panjab itself also invest and build up an arms manufacturing industry for economic reasons? We had one previous to goray turning up.
  2. I watched it a bit NE0, I didn't find it that funny. Maybe I watched the wrong video? (will try some more) I grew up in England. At this stage of my Iife I find that I like my humour seriously dark and twisted. It's got to be offensive on some level. lol This just seems like white girls saying what every woke man knows (or should know!) about white men but still enjoying all the perks and privileges. Now, if they grabbed one and beat him about the head with a pool cue and then rammed it up his ar5e ala Sopranos, and filmed that - then I'd be impressed. Plus these aussies: those b1tches great grandpa was probably some serial paedo rapist that the english loaded up on a 'transport' boat over here and shipped out over there in the 1800s. I prefer stuff like Andrew Schulz, Jimmy Carr, Jim Jefferies (even that Canadian b1tch Katherine Ryan who seems to have made a full time career off british comic panel shows) and whatnot. Paul Chowdhry is good too, but you never know when these brown b@stards are going to sell out their roots for the next big upward move of the career ladder - but probably more likely is them reaching that point in their 'ascent' that the average brown c**t at ground level (who used to be their bread and butter) can't relate to them anymore. Just like that 'Superwoman' from your country. {That's an example of the kind of warped humour I like btw!]
  3. Obviously, this section of CP has deeply mined existing romantic folktales. It pretty much like a commentary and adaptation of these.
  4. I think this Jalal and Bubna story is a Rajastani folktale.
  5. I don't know what's going on in the English translation above?
  6. A big thank you to the brother in the video who shared his experiences with Thomas Clark, giving the rest of the panth a heads up. Especially the hordes of naive gullible people.
  7. Just shows us, we can't let our guards down, even in a Gurdwara.
  8. There is so much going on in this Chariter. It links to lots of other granths within DG. First thing, I think Raja Dasrath is the father of Ram Chander. If we take a literal interpretation of the genealogy within Bachitar Natak, then we are talking about a purported ancestor of dasmesh pita. We've had a few previous chariters that revolved around traditional Panjabi folk tales of love between man and women, here the theme is continued with the love between Dasrath and Kaikaee. This drives Kaikaee to accompany the raja into battle, rather than be separated from him - where she threatens to immolate herself if he refuses to take her. She also says that she will immolate herself should he lose the battle. The idea of loyalty is underscored. The chariter is heavily bir-raasi. (As an aside, I think if we did a textual comparison with chariters like this and a few of the previous ones [with battle scenes], with the battle accounts in BN and the Chandi narratives, we might be able to establish some internal consistency pointing at a single author?) It's technical too, in that it really drives home how the effective and timely commandeering of Dasrath's chariot by Kaikaee (after the former driver is killed), not only keep Dasrath alive but also decimates the enemy and wins the battle. This point is reinforced at the conclusion of the chariter. So it seems to have tactical military advice embedded within. Also, significantly, it actually serves as a prelude to the (chronologically) later(?) Chandi narratives. (Again, note how all of the last few chariters weave Indra into the narratives, like this one does ). In the Chandhi tales, we have Indra fighting in the battle between gods and demons (representing good and evil?) and being worsted and having to call Chandhi in to re-establish himself on the battlefield. This looks like a battle within that wider war between devtay and asuras? Notice how the female representation is not remotely negative with Kaikaee - she's actually the heroine of the whole piece and the cause of victory.
  9. A big question is whether the concept of dharam within Sikhi is the same or different to the older Indic conception(s) of the word.
