  1. There are a few available, just run a search from the App Store for "Sikh" - there should be a few results. I downloaded one called "Gurbani Anywhere" which contains Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Sri Dasam Granth and Bhai Gurdas Vaaran. It seems to be a pretty good app! I'm not sure re. Blackberry though.
  2. Going by what I saw on a recently screened BBC doco regarding the slaughter of goats in the UK, the animal is stunned first with a bolt gun, hung up and then has its jugular cut/slit. I don't really think this would constitute a "clean" kill as the stunning process doesn't really kill the animal. As such, for rehit purposes I don't think it would be jhatka, but could possibly be classified as non-halal/kuttha I suppose. In my opinion, the best meat to eat in the West if one chooses to do so, would be that classified as organic. Such meat generally has to be rigorously monitored in order to retain that classification. However, the way in which it is slaughtered would probably be the same. The only difference is that the animal doesn't have to be subjected to the conditions that those on factory farms endure.
  3. I think you are right DalSingh101, it definitely looks as if the group on the right are non-Sikhs, quite possibly Afghans or Persians? The group on the left look like they are Sikhs. Very interesting depiction re. the Sikh soldier retrieving his head - I hope someone can provide more info!
  4. Hopefully England put up more of a fight this time, unlike the last time they were here... that tour was an absolute disaster for the most part
  5. I seriously hope this event fails to get under way so a real disaster can be averted. Indians need to wake up and smell the coffee. A handful of billionaires and the materialistic Bollywood fantasy mentality isn't doing anything to help the country fight it's two biggest problems: Poverty and corruption. These issues have been swept under the rug for far too long. In the end, the greatest hilarity is the fact that it wasn't the so called "Sikh extremists" that were the biggest threat to the Games - as stated in numerous news sources in recent months; but rather the ineptitude of the organisers.
  6. Thanks for sharing. I do remember reading somewhere that beef-eating was very common during the Vedic times. In fact, I remember being told by a Nair friend from Kerala that they consumed beef without any qualms.
  7. Looking at that picture makes me loathe the Punjab Police even more. Purveyors of human-rights violations, but now at the forefront of the Animal Liberation movement.
  8. While the police protect cows, the people are left to languish. Gotta love India.
  9. Man, I feel sorry for those kids.. They are the undeserving victims of this sick practice. I can't believe there were people that actually dismissed the medical evidence. I would hate to be a Paki in the UK right now. I don't know what's worse, being called a terrorist or a cousin-shagger (or p*nch*de )
  10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-LEEQXzmQA <-- Doco re. the cyclic notion of time, i.e. the yugas such as satyug etc.

  11. Very interesting, I would have thought that those averages would be a little higher at the very least.
  12. Interestingly, the 'Jatt movies' of the 80's and early 90's have their roots in Pakistani Punjabi cinema, from which they were essentially copied. In fact, most Pakistani Punjabi movies at one point all featured the word "Jatt" in their titles.
  13. The mainstream Indian cinema on a whole (besides a few films now and then) is an insult to one's intelligence. Until they ditch the typical Bollywood masala nonsense, Indian cinema will never be taken seriously on the world stage. It's better that Sikhs invest in more westernised style films and media to portray ourselves (Bend it like Beckham doesn't count lol)
