'downton Abbey' And The M. Duleep Singh Connection.

Recommended Posts

WHat can you expect?

Lineage, of any kind is insignificant when you surrounded by any particular type company. Even though it is stated he is a Sikh, do you think he ever had much contact with Indians , let alone Panjabis or SIkhs?

His main sangat was the upper echelons of British society. That is how he turned out. Doesn't matter what/who his family were.

But then again, if he wanted to become a practicing Sikh do you believe that the Sikh establishment would have allowed him or accepted him?

Just read the story of his sister, who came to India wanting to marry a Panjabi amritdhari man. She approached the Sikh elite (SGPC etc) so that she could take amrit and they could arrange a marriage for her. She was totally ignored. She gave up broken-hearted and ended up marrying an Englishman. She is now buried in Lahore in a Christian cemetery.
