  1. Nor is people dying from it bhai ji. That much is obvious. Plus our ancestors used hakims. I remember reading about Shaheed Sukha Singh in Panth Prakash, and Bhangu describes how after a battle he had to get his broken leg refixed by a hakim. I share your suspicion of modern pharma, but to think that we can't get ill or have accidents....
  2. I don't think having a strong avastha is going to completely prevent communicable diseases. Sure, having a strong and healthy body and positive mindset will help you deal with it better than being out of shape and debilitated out of fear. There is nothing wrong with taking sensible precautions, like limited your public exposure when a pandemic is going on..... I know people involved in a Gurdwara with a outbreak, they believe that it was transferred when someone (who was later diagnosed positive) distributed karah parshaad.
  3. As people are discussing it: There is some science behind the potential of cannabinoids to alleviate the worst covid symptoms. Most people who are hospitalised are in that position because of 'cytokine storms' that's when your body mounts a massive inflammatory response to the covid virus swarming around your body (it's trying to kill it in this way), but unfortunately this overreaction of the immune system starts to actually attack the body itself, and does more harm to certain cells than the virus. That's when you can get in a serious, hospitalised condition. Now some of the cannabinoids in cannabis have powerful anti-inflammatory effects (as does turmeric), so these might help moderate the cytokine storm that is attacking the body in the form of inflammation. Look it up. Also, CBD and THC are just two out of up to 70/80 odd cannabinoids found (thus far!) in cannabis. There are many others too, that aren't psychoactive but may have health benefits for us. Our ancestors used cannabis leaves, whereas modern people used cannabis buds. The leaves have a lot less cannabinoids in them than the buds. All mammals, including us have a (hitherto, not very well understood) endogenous cannabinoid system that is heavily involved in many aspects of our bodies functioning including our immune responses.
  4. Did you do any training to get your stamina up bro? I think light training definitely helps with recovery. Also, I think I know the Gurdwara you're talking about. Did the head die of organ failure at King George's?
  5. HARCHAND SINGH (ACCUSED OF MURDERING NOTORIOUS GANGSTER & KILLER OF SIKHS – POOHLA NIHANG): SIKH RELIEF WORK ON HIS PAROLE RELEASE AND FULFIL HIS CHILDRENS EDUCATION FEES WHILE HE REMAINS IN JAIL Ajit Poohla, disguised as a Nihang, was responsible for committing heinous crimes and severe human rights abuses in the 80’s and 90’s. He was thought to be part of the ‘black-cats’ of the Punjab police, who were an undisciplined force specially prepared to unlawfully ‘tackle’ the Sikh militant movement. Poohla and his gang have been accused of numerous rapes and sexual offences, they were responsible for the deaths of many young Sikh men and they wreaked havoc among the families of their victims – all in connivance with the Panjab Police. Ajit Poohla’s death was regarded by the larger Sikh community as a just punishment for a high level human rights abuser who enjoyed the impunity granted to him by state patronage. In 2008, Ajit Poohla was burnt to death in Amritsar’s Central jail, where he was serving a sentence in a criminal case. The police named 6 people as the accused in this case, including Harchand Singh from the village of Mari Kamboke. In May 2014, an Amritsar court fully acquitted Harchand Singh, but he is currently still serving out a life sentence in connection with another case. Jasvinder Singh from Sikh Relief, visited Harchand Singh’s elderly parents, wife and two young children, whose education fees for the coming academic year 2016-17 have been paid in full once again by Sikh Relief with the help of the Sangat. Monthly payments of family support is also given by Sikh Relief regularly into their bank account. https://www.sikhrelief.org/projects/uncategorized/harchand-singh-accused-of-murdering-notorious-gangster-killer-of-sikhs-poohla-nihang-sikh-relief-work-on-his-parole-release-and-fulfil-his-childrens-education-fees-while-he-remains-in-jail/
  6. Poohla Nihang Murder Case: Three acquitted for lack of evidence AMRITSAR, PUNJAB (KP) – The Amritsar District and Session Judge has acquitted Harchand Singh and Navtej Singh ‘Guggu’ of the criminal charges related the murder case of notorious Police cat turned Ajit Phoola Nihang. Session Judge Gurbir Singh announced the acquittal within minutes after both Harchand Singh Marri-Kamboke, and Navtej Singh ‘Guggu’ of Batala made their appearance in the District courthouse. Poohla, who was facing trial for rape, murder and other heinous crimes, was set ablaze allegedly by Navtej and Harchand in the high-security Amritsar Central Jail on August 28, 2008. Reportedly, the duo obtained the fuel from a nearby generator that was connected to the prison Gurdwara. Around noon time on August 28th, the pair decided to approach Poohla Nihang in ward no. 9 and initiated a quarrel, resulting in the neo-Nihang being set on fire. Poohla was immediately taken to the local Civil Hospital but then later transferred over to PGI Chandigarh, due to the seriousness of his burns. He was declared dead the next day. The attacker were later identified as Navtej Singh of Batala and Harchand Singh of Marri-Kamboki, Amritsar. Six individuals were originally charged in the conspiracy, three of them had been exonerated earlier by the trial court. Poohla: Ruthless Butcher in Garb of a Nihang Ajit Poohla, who headed his own faction of Tarna Dal, and a high level undercover police officer, operated his cadre of black cats during the turbulent 1980s and 1990s, and was responsible for numerous heinous crimes against humanity including murder, rape, and torture under state patronage. For the past two decades, Poohla was also involved in drug trafficking and illegal occupation of public and private lands. He had illegally seized several Gurdwaras in Punjab and used them as centers of criminal activity. In 2005, he was ousted from the Gurdwaras and eventually jailed due to the efforts of Col. HS Sandhu, of the Majha Human Rights Front. When the freedom movement was at its peak in the state, Poohla enjoyed a high security cover of 42 official gunmen armed with 77 sophisticated weapons. He was known to flaunt snapshots of him in the company of senior political party leaders, including a former chief minister, and senior IAS and IPS officers. https://singhstation.net/2014/05/poohla-nihang-murder-case-three-acquitted-for-lack-of-evidence/
  7. @paapiman I think this is a perfect example of sexual frustration making a person a deviant weirdo: Serial flasher who exposed himself to women on trains then changed outfits in bid to beat the CCTV cameras is jailed for 18 months Tajinder Sabherwal, 40, targeted women on trains between 2016 and 2021 Among the women he had exposed himself to was an off-duty police officer Sabherwal changed disguises after exposing himself to his latest victim He was arrested carrying several disguises after his latest attack on April 3 A man who exposed himself to women - including off duty police officers - over a five year period and changed his outfits to avoid detection has been jailed for 18 months. British Transport Police arrested Tajinder Sabherwal, 40, from Bedford on April 3, 2021, after he was spotted exposing his genitals and touching himself inappropriately while sitting across from a woman on a train travelling from London Bridge to Cambridge. After the woman challenged Sabherwal, an off-duty police officer removed the suspect from the train and arrested him at St Pancras station. Officers searching Sabherwal found several items of clothing and a number of hats which matched previous CCTV stills from earlier incidents. British Transport Police were able to link Saberhwal to an incident when an off-duty police officer boarded a train from Redhill to London Bridge on January 30, 2021. Saberhwal, spotting the woman, moved across the aisle from her and began touching inside his shorts. Inner London Crown Court heard that the officer challenged Saberhewal, who pushed past her violently when the train arrived at Coulsdon South and ran out of the station. He was found guilty of seven counts of outraging public decency and one count of assault against an emergency service worker. The offences dated between 2016 and 2021 on trains around London and Surrey. As well as the 18-month jail sentence, Sabherwal was handed a Sexual Harm Prevention Order. Officers examining CCTV footage of the journeys discovered that Saberhwal routinely changed outfits after offending to avoid detection. When he was eventually arrested, he was found carrying several of his disguises which were linked to previous offences. Detective Constable Olivia Hill of British Transport Police said: 'Sabherwal’s odious actions were evidently pre-meditated and for his own sexual gratification. Sabherwal, pictured, was wearing this outfit when he exposed himself to one victim while on a train from Redhill to London Bridge 'These incidents will have had a serious impact on the victims’ lives, and we believe no one should be subject to such vile behaviour on the railway. 'I’m pleased to see he’ll have plenty of time to reflect on this in prison. 'I would urge anyone who witnesses or experiences sexual harassment on the railway to report it to us – no report is too small or insignificant and we will always take you seriously.
  8. That's not true to Guru ithihaas. They trained people, and made it a part of the culture. No one can make you train, but common sense dictates that it is good for you. I see it myself between my peers and who kept training and who didn't. No one is saying train like you did in you youth (I couldn't do that if I wanted), but physical activity is good for the body and mind. Be careful, because lack of physical exercise makes the body deteriorate a lot quicker. Your muscles get weaker and weaker, and before you know it, you can't support your own body weight and start having accidents or postural problems. You should true to yourself about these things. If you don't have the motivation to train anymore, admit it to yourself. Being in self-denial is not good. I believe if you used to train regular once upon a time, you're better equipped to get back into it. It does sound like you're using 'religion' to excuse away not training. Do it for your own health. Here is something from Giani Gian Singh's Twarikh Guru Khalsa. It' an important account because Giani ji, lived through the Sikh raj and saw the changes the british 'annexation' bought to Sikh culture: ਪਿੱਛੇ ਦਿਖਾਏ ਇਲਮਾਂ, ਹੁਨਰਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਬਨਾਵਟ ਸਮਝਣ ਵਾਲਿਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਅਸੀਂ ਅਪਣੇ ਨੇਤ੍ਰੀ ਦੇਖੀ ਵਾਰਤਾ ਦੱਸਦੇ ਹਾਂ।ਇਲਮ ਤੀਰੰਦਾਜ਼ੀ ਤੇ ਲੱਕੜੀ ਬਾਜ਼ੀ ਦਾ ਥੋੜ੍ਹੇ ਹੀ ਬਰਸ ਹੋਏ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਵਿਚਅਜੇਹਾ ਚਰਚਾ ਸੀ ਕਿ ਜਿਸਨੂੰ ਸੁਣਕੇ ਅਨੇਕ ਅੰਗ੍ਰੇਜ਼ੀ ਪੜ੍ਹੇ ਹੋਏ ਗੱਭਰੂ ਅਚਰਜ ਮਨਣਗੇ। ਸਰਦਾਰ ਅਮਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਮਜੀਠੀਆ, ਬੁੱਧ ਸਿੰਘ, ਵਸਾਵਾ ਸਿੰਘ ਸੰਧਾ ਵਾਲੀਏ ਵਗ਼ੈਰਾ ਅਨੇਕ ਸਰਦਾਰ ਕੜਾਹੇ ਵਿੱਚੋਂ ਦੀ ਤੀਰ ਨਿਕਾਲ ਦਿੰਦੇ ਸਨ ਤੇ ਜਿੱਥੇ ਚਾਹੁੰਦੇ ਓਥੇ ਹੀ ਬਾਣ ਮਾਰਦੇ। ਭਾਈ ਮਨੀ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ਦਾ ਸਕਾ ਭਤੀਜਾ ਏਸ ਤਵਾਰੀਖ ਦੇ ਕਰਤਾ ਦਾ ਬਾਬਾ ਭਾਈ ਦਰਗਾਹਾਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ‘ਸ਼ਬਦ ਬੇਧ’ ਅਰਥਾਤ ਅੰਧੇਰੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਜਿੱਥੋਂ ਆਵਾਜ਼ ਆਂਵਦੀ ਉਸ ਦੇ ਮੂੰਹ ਯਾ ਦੇਹ ਵਿੱਚ ਅਚੂਕ ਤੀਰ ਮਾਰਦਾ। ਏਹ ਬਾਤ ਕਨਖਲ ਵਿੱਚ ਅਨੇਕ ਆਦਮੀ ਸੁਣੀ ਹੋਈ ਸੁਣਾਯਾ ਕਰਦੇ ਹਨ ਕਿਉਂਕਿ ਓਹ ਓਥੇ ਹੀ ਜਾ ਰਹੇ ਸਨ। ਡੇਰਾ ਭੀ ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦਾ ਓਥੇ ਮਸ਼ਹੂਰ ਹੈ। ਅਨੇਕ ਦਰੱਖਤਾਂ ਦੇ ਵਿੱਚੋਂ ਓਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਤੀਰ ਕੱਢੇ ਸਨ ਅਤੇ ਲੱਕੜੀ ਬਾਜ਼ੀ ਵਾਲੇ ਅਸਾਂ ਏਥੋਂ ਤੱਕ ਦੇਖੇ ਹਨ ਜੋ ਮੰਜੇ ਹੇਠੋਂ ਕਾਂਉ ਨੂੰ ਬਾਹਰ ਨਾ ਜਾਣ ਦੇਣਾ। ਬਾਕੀ ਜੰਗ ਦਾ ਸਾਮਾਨ ਫੁਲਾਦੀ ਸੰਜੋਆਂ ਪੇਟੀ ਚਿਰਾਨੇ ਟੋਪ ਇਤਨੇਭਾਰੇ ਅਸਾਂ ਦੇਖੇ ਹਨ ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਹੁਣ ਦੇ ਗੱਭਰੂ ਮਸਾਂ ਚੁੱਕਣ ਤੇ ਓਹ ਸਿੰਘ ਓਦੂੰ ਦੂਣੇ ਭਾਰੇ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰ ਸੰਜੋਆਂ ਪਹਿਨ ਕੇ ਜੰਗ ਕਰਦੇ ਹੁੰਦੇ ਜਾਂ ਭਾਂਜ ਪੈਂਦੀ ਤਾਂ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰਾਂ ਸੰਜੋਆਂ ਸਮੇਤ ਬੀਸ-ਬੀਸਕੋਹ ਨੱਠੇ ਚਲੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ। ਬਾਕੀ ਜੇ ਲੁੱਟ ਦਾ ਪਦਾਰਥ ਮਣ ਦੋ ਮਣ ਮਿਲ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਤਾਂ ਚਾਲੀ-ਚਾਲੀ ਕੋਹ ਪਹੁੰਚ ਕੇ ਦਮ ਲੈਂਦੇ ਸਨ। For those who consider the previously described skills and knowledge to be fictitious, I’ll now give an account of what I have witnessed with my very own eyes. It’s only been a few years since the arts of archery and stick fighting were discussed in such a way that should [today's] young British-educated men have heard it, they would've considered it astounding. Sardars like Amar Singh Majittia, Buddh Singh, Wasava Singh Sandawalia and many other chieftains could shoot arrows straight through [metal] cauldrons; their arrows striking whichever targets they desired. Bhai Mani Singh ji’s nephew, [who was] the author of this historical document's forefather [called] Baba Dargaha Singh ji could 'pierce the word' meaning that even in the dark, they could accurately shoot an arrow into the mouth or body of anyone who made a sound. In the town of Kankhal these matters are spoken of by many men and they will inform you of as much because they [the previously mentioned sardars] used to go there. Even their camp is well known at that place. There, they shot arrows straight through many trees and I have seen stick fighters who have reached a point where they can keep a crow trapped underneath a bed. I’ve seen other materials of war like steel chainmail, belts, body armour and helmets that were so heavy that the strapping youth of today would just about be able to pick them up and those Singhs would go to war wielding and wearing weaponry and chainmail that was twice as heavy or they would undergo forced marches of approximately 50 kilometres (20 koh) with such weaponry and armour. They would only stop to rest after reaching destinations roughly 100 kilometres away and that too carrying any looted materials that came to hand. ਭਰੋਸਾ ਹੈ ਹੁਣ ਦੇ ਜਵਾਨ ਏਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਤਾਕਤਾਂ ਤੇ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰ ਵਿੱਦਿਆ ਨੂੰ ਭੀ ਸ਼ਾਇਦ ਹੀ ਸੱਚ ਮੰਨਣ ਕਿਉਂਕਿ ਏਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਤਾਂ ਓਹ ਕਮਾਣਾਂ ਦੇਖੀਆਂ ਭੀ ਨਹੀਂ । ਚਿੱਲੇ ਕੀ ਚੜ੍ਹਾਉਣ? ਏਸੇ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਰ ਅਨੇਕ ਇਲਮ ਤੇ ਹੁਨਰ ਆਪਣੇ ਸਮੇਂ ਸਿਰ ਉਨੱਤੀ ਪਰ ਹੋ ਕੇ ਮਿਟ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਹਨ । ਸੰਮਤ ੧੯੧੪ ਬਿਕ੍ਰਮੀ ਤੋਂ ਪਹਿਲੇ ਤੀਰ ਅਨੇਕ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਰ ਦੇ ਭੱਥੇ ਭਰੇ ਹੋਏ ਕਮਾਨਾਂ, ਬੰਦੂਕਾਂ ਤੋੜੇਦਾਰਾਂਤੇ ਪੱਥਰ ਕਲਾਂ ਤਲਵਾਰਾਂ, ਨੇਜ਼ੇ, ਬਰਛੀਆਂ, ਸਾਂਗਾਂ, ਕਟਾਰ ਪੇਸ਼ਕਬਜ਼, ਤਮੰਚੇ, ਪਸਤੌਲ ਢਾਲਾਂ ਆਦਿਕ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰ ਸੰਜੋਇ ਆਦਿਕ ਬਖਤਰ ਘਰ ਘਰ ਹੁੰਦੇ ਸੇ । ਸਭ ਲੋਕ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰਵਿੱਦ੍ਯਾ ਸਿੱਖਦੇ ਸਿਖਾਂਵਦੇ ਘਰ ਬੈਠੇ ਹੀ ਪੱਕੇ ਸਿਪਾਹੀ ਬਣੇ ਰਹਿੰਦੇ ਸੇ ।I I believe that the young, strapping lads of today may have trouble accepting such strength and martial skills to be a reality because they haven't even seen those bows, let alone string one? In this fashion, many arts and skills - after reaching a highly developed stage become extinct at the hands of time. Prior to 1914 Bikram there were quivers packed with many varieties of arrows, guns, matchlocks, stone-cutting sabres, javelins, spears and pikes. Coats of mail and armoury, as well as weaponry such as punch daggers, Afghani stilettos, revolvers, pistols, shields and so forth were kept in each and every home. All the people would be learning or teaching the art of weaponry, and even whilst seated within their own homes they remained as true soldiers. More here:
  9. Are you going to try and do these again? I think it might be better if you go for activities less strenuous on the joints (at least to start with).
  10. Bhai ji, you can make excuses, but keeping yourself physically fit is important. The role of diet and exercise in this is well known. Do yourself a favour and don't let your munh trick you into sloth. No one is saying that bhagti and exercise are mutually exclusive.
  11. No, bhai ji, it also came from training, which Guru sahib had his Sikhs doing (hunting, martial arts, wrestling and probably a bunch of other stuff we've forgotten about now. Look at Hola Mohalla. Do yourself a favour brother, don't give up on physical activity. I have close associates who are the same age as me, who gave up on training a while ago. They aren't in good shape when it comes to mobility. That's not to say that people who train don't get issues as well, but then that's about training smarter I guess. This is even more important if your job has you sedentary at a desk for most of the day.
  12. Maybe even older? A lot of other greats weren't teenagers either, Akali Phoola Singh (shaheed age 62), Hari Singh Nalwa (shaheed at 46), Sham Singh Attari was well into his 50s when he charged the wasps.
  13. No bhai ji, please. Our ancestors trained hard for war regular. They were known for their shocking endurance and speed in long distance marches.
  14. Also, when you hit mid 40s, you need longer rests between sets of exercises, and longer rest periods between sessions to recover.
  15. Deeply rooted inferiority complexes stemming from colonialism?
  16. I think also it's because right now a lot of ethnic people don't trust goray, and wouldn't put any nefarious scheme beyond them.
  17. Don't lose it completely bro. Be able to do a couple. Like I said before; helps with mobility.
  18. I'd say at least keep certain movements alive. Just make sure you can still do a round of push ups every now and then. Do a few pull ups (don't have to do many, like 3-5 just to keep that movement alive in your body. Also dips, do a few of those. Make sure you can squat (with no weight) a few times all the way up and down. That really helps with mobility. I used to train with someone who has since given up training all together (in his 30s). He's in really bad shape now, and can't even do a single pull up or dip anymore.
  19. Did you not feel that your muscle mass was deteriorating? Not talking about size here (which would naturally decrease after not training for a while) but tone and composition? I don't train like I might have done in my 20s or even late 30s now, but if I do nothing for a protracted period, I feel terrible, mentally and physically. Another thing is that I do physio stuff I never did as a youngster (using rubber bands), to hit smaller stabilising muscles like the rotator cuff. lower/mid lats. Cardio seems to have gone out of the window at the moment. But I do like to do a few sets of wall climbers regularly (not necessarily everyday) to prevent my tidh getting saggy.
