Sikh from a bad background and a self-centred Sikh


Recommended Posts

This is what  ਛਿੰਨਾ comes up as:


SGGS Gurmukhi-Gurmukhi Dictionary
Cẖẖiʼnnā. ਪਾਟੇ ਹੋਏ, ਖੰਡਿਤ। ਬਸਤਾ ਤੂਟੀ ਝੁੰਪੜੀ ਚੀਰ ਸਭਿ ਛਿੰਨਾ ॥ Raga Jaitsaree 5, Vaar 7:1 (P: 707).


Mahan Kosh Encyclopedia

ਸੰ. छिन्ना {ਸੰਗ੍ਯਾ}. ਵੇਸ਼੍ਯਾ. ਕੰਚਨੀ। (2) ਵਿ- ਪਾਟਿਆ ਹੋਇਆ. ਫਟਿਆ. "ਚੀਰ ਸਭਿ ਛਿੰਨਾ". (ਵਾਰ ਜੈਤ)। (3) ਗਿਲੋ. ਗੜੂਚੀ.


But what does ਵਿਆਧੀ mean???


I got this for ਵਿਆਧ:


 Same as ਵਿਆਂਹਦੜ which is: about to be married, prospective (groom or bride), married. 


So it could just mean someone from a broken marriage background and not what McLeod has translated it as? I don't know which word means 'diseased' in the original. McLeod's always been a snake.

Probably the same as ਬਿਆਧੀ.

Please see below. Now, it makes sense why McLeod translated it as "Diseased".

ਬਿਆਧਿ - biādhhi - बिआधि

ਦੇਖੋ ਬਿਆਧ. "ਬਿਆਧਿ ਅਜਾਮਲੁ ਤਾਰੀਅਲੇ." (ਗਉ ਨਾਮਦੇਵ) ੨. ਸੰ. ਵ੍ਯਾਧਿ. ਰੋਗ. ਬੀਮਾਰੀ। ੩. ਸੰਤਾਪ. ਦੁੱਖ, "ਸਗਲ ਬਿਆਧਿ ਮਨ ਤੇ ਖੈ ਨਸੈ." (ਸੁਖਮਨੀ) ੪. ਕਲੰਕ, ਦੋਸ. "ਕਾਹੂ ਮਹਿ ਮੋਤੀ ਮੁਕਤਾਹਲ, ਕਾਹੂ ਬਿਆਧਿ ਲਗਾਈ." (ਆਸਾ ਕਬੀਰ)


Bhul chuk maaf
