  1. If you come from a SIkh background, don't you think it might be time to learn to read Gurmukhi now?
  2. I tell you a strange thing that happened today. When I was doing my simran and the cat made me open my eyes, I noticed my breathing still remain slow and steady. I actually felt really peaceful looking at the cat and doing simran. I should learn to ignore her when she brushes up against me when I'm meditating. I think because they are used to attention, me sitting there still, makes them try and get attention more. Normally the cat wouldn't brush up against me that much. lol
  3. I had no idea about sant ji's spiritual lineage. I didn't know he was from a lineage that included the Sikh freedom fight Bhai Maharaj Singh ji, until I read it on this forum a few weeks ago. I also didn't know that the lineage goes back to first Panj Piara Daya Singh ji. I feel blest with having his darshan as a kid now, even if it's taken me this long to realise who he was and what he did for the panth.
  4. I agree, but it looks like coconutism is a rife all over the place. But if the past is anything to go by, those tarkhans will make inroads into industries that other SIkhs will benefit from later.
  5. Another distinct difference I note with a few chariters is that most of them have this formulaic phrase about the beauty of one of the characters along the lines of (paraphrase): Her beauty was such that even the moon became coy upon seeing her face. Or the something involving the gods and/or goddesses becoming coy at seeing the beauty. I think this might be sarcasm or something like that? But a few of them don't have it, like this one. And we should maybe note clustering of chariters. I'm wondering if the inclusion of a few jut chariters in amongst this recent cluster of chariters that draws heavily on popular folklore is purposeful? Is it some sort of recognition or related to the fact that this demographic likes these folkloric romance tales? And note this chariter is grounded in that it doesn't weave Indic mythological elements within like previous ones have.
  6. Most of us probably do simran with our eyes closed and focused. But recently the neighbourhood cat which likes to chill in the house sometimes, is around sometimes when I do simran, and this makes me open my eyes to check when she starts scratching stuff incase it is something important she is shredding. I open my eyes to see what she is doing and only react if needed. How will this impact my simran?
  7. Add to the above, because I don't think you're old enough to remember: When Gurdwaras were original being purchased and renovated/built in the early days. Many nonjuts played a big part in this too. Most juts didn't have the skills back then. But they've hugely benefited from the kirpa of these nonjuts who taught them and gave them a sustainable living, which they passed on the wider jut community. That's one of the things that keeps the community strong in the UK. We need to build on all of this and create a strong, diverse, robust global Sikh economy now. Especially if other people's economies are going to falter through needless wars, demographic change and whatnot. Bhangra has been something that has bought its fair share of negative things to the panth too. People have slowly realised this in the last few decades. Previously our lot were mass-profiling like brainless, drunk oafs in the UK because of it. That's when outsiders originally came and took advantage with grooming. Fools were going to tonday with the "we're all the same - Panjabis!" vibe. Most of us with a brain have realised we need to be careful with it now. Previously, people turned the community into a joke from it. That's when you'd meet baharlay bundhay and they'd stick their fingers in the air clownishly going "balle - balle" like that is synonymous with Sikhs. We have to make sure the right messages are pushed out from it, and that it doesn't corrupt the community like before. It's not a joke thing.
  8. In the Uk dude, nonJut Sikhs gave Juts economic freedom by opening up the construction trade, and turning them from unskilled pendus, to skilled, semi-skilled workers. That's how the majority of faujis eat now, and send money back home. That's how many juts got their kids educated too (or bought Off Licences). That's why they don't have to rush into foreign armies because they are desperately skint from farming anymore. You know that's true! lol And hip hop fusion things been around for years. Look at Bally Sagoo and PMC. First point of mass contact working class goray had here with skilled workers were nonJuts. Who made a great reputation for themselves with their hard work and skills - that still stands. A good example of a nonJut who pushed and escalated Sikhi in East London is Sant Isher Singh Ji. He came here and did parchaar to all, including Juts in the late 70s when the community was just getting on their feet and under attack too. And he didn't do it when the panth was in a position to fill up the golak, like now. He did it from the heart and soul. Now tell me that the original bhangra scene here wasn't the starting point of girls getting plastered, and tonday going to them to groom and abuse them. Any excuse to go bwaaah bwaahh with you pendus. lol
  9. Steel banglez: Have you been painting a house or something brother? lol Be careful of those splashbacks. No matter what you see, and where it takes you, you got to have a bubble.
  10. Who gives a f**k who it is. When people sing the right song, at the right time, you gots to appreciate it. I'm sure there are plenty of Juts who would resent this. Like that kaalah hating Jageera cat and umpteen pupooos and gorment chumchay. lol! Eastside 'misfits' mfs!!!! What's got to be said, has to be said. Those brave enough to say it belong in a class of their own - outside any jaat paat sh1t. That's the true Panjab way.
  11. I tell you, when you compare some of the English translation with the Panjabi one, one of them must be getting it seriously wrong.
  12. Over 2 mill hits in less than 2 days......hhmmmmm. lol Liking Steel Banglez denim jacket but sadly, it looks like a bunch of kabooters flew over him just before the shoot and acted in a most inconsiderate way.....
  13. 'She was standing over my bed saying, "let's do this!" How Demi Moore climbed through actor Paul Carafotes' window with a bottle of Dom Perignon for a sex romp the night before she married her first husband https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7551437/Paul-Carafotes-reveals-Demi-Moore-climbed-window-sex-hours-wedding.html
  14. You know I've always been struck by the similarities between William Wallace and Banda Singh Bahadur.
  15. You know veer ji, I'm not the biggest fan of the police, but I respect and commend those that had the gall to confront the deeply entrenched pedos in the political system, even if their case went south with Carl Beech. I'm glad that they actually protected themselves against the establishment that sought to try and make examples of the coppers who faced this. Here I applaud them. They should never be cowed down into turning a blind eye to these heinous crimes. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/carl-beech-operation-midland-westminster-paedophile-ring-iopc-police-a9146051.html And most of the media are a bunch of backboneless giddarhs. We all know this has been happening, and for a long time too. Look at what Ronnie Kray and his political chums used to get up to. Thank Waheguru, ordinary people, from all backgrounds, are waking up to this. Thank Waheguru that we live in times with communication technology that allows us to bypass the twisted, deceptive mainstream narratives. This is the only way we can offer some protection to vulnerable potential victims who face the obfuscation of those with wealth and positions of power.
  16. What an ignorant policeman........... What fudhu who's grown up in England doesn't know that Singhs can carry kirpans.......
  17. That's very true veer ji. But we should also take note of how some of these brothers and sisters are treated quite shabbily by some people in Gurdwaras. That is disgraceful. Also, these people are on the frontline. This is Guru ji's hukam of how this panth is spreading. It's an important step in our community becoming truly global, and becoming diverse outside of Panjabcentrism, as it was supposed to, and originally was.
  18. They are probably milking it themselves. I'm sure cash donations are given with those aeroplanes.

  20. “It is said that what is called "the spirit of an age" is something to which one cannot return. That this spirit gradually dissipates is due to the world's coming to an end. For this reason, although one would like to change today's world back to the spirit of one hundred years or more ago, it cannot be done. Thus it is important to make the best out of every generation.”
  21. “To give a person an opinion one must first judge well whether that person is of the disposition to receive it or not.”
  22. “It is bad when one thing becomes two. One should not look for anything else in the Way of the Samurai. It is the same for anything that is called a Way. Therefore, it is inconsistent to hear something of the Way of Confucius or the Way of the Buddha, and say that this is the Way of the Samurai. If one understands things in this manner, he should be able to hear about all Ways and be more and more in accord with his own.” ― Yamamoto Tsunetomo, Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai
