mehargags Posted May 8, 2003 Report Share Posted May 8, 2003 ssa veeji & pahenji i am new to this forum so bhul chuk maf karni i have given my intro to the forum aboce so any confusion about me just read it there I am surfing on sikh site's i have found this & another one & there is one contest is going there so i just added there also U should also enter it there http://www.allaboutsikhs.com/home.php Is u have read the above link i have written one debate on it i want u to ask what i have written is gud or bad Essay on Sikhism in 21st century If we talk about Sikh people what the first thing come in our mind that the boy is wearing Turban he got beard & mustache on his faceâ€™s. This is the best way in the world to recognized Sikh person & if it Girls then she donâ€™t make there eyebrows & especially donâ€™t trim there hair. Problem------- But the question is to be asked Is that formula can be applied in 21st century to recognize Sikh people in 21st century & the answer would be big â€œNOâ€. Ok we Changed our selfâ€™s with need of modernization in the world. Sikh Boys starting Fixing their beard with gel & some Fixco etc & Sikh girls started making there eyebrows (threading) Which is quite acceptable for the basic needâ€™s of the 21st century. But the problem has now started because modernization is gone so far that it making a move to existence of Sikhism. Itâ€™s right to say that Sikh people are at very top position in every department in every part of the world but couple of people can make impression of Good culture in the limits they canâ€™t stop where the young Sikhâ€™s are going now a days Reason------- The main problem of Sikh boys cutting their hair is started from 1984 riots in India. Where different caste people due to this many people cut down murder thousands of Sikh their hair & many left the country. So those people who have cut down there hair at that time few of them taken AMRIT & become Sikh again but many donâ€™t so from there family are just cutting down there hair. They go to gurdwara like us do what ever we will do for our religion but still donâ€™t wear turban & we can say them CUTSURD. The main reason of now days of cutting down is media. Media is one the main reason for Sikhism they r not teaching anything to promote Sikhism there culture & values. U will see many Punjabi videos (pop albums) they are talking about Punjabi, Sikhs but u will hardly see any Sikh in video. If u see some they have so badly trimmed there beard that u will feel sorry for Sikhâ€™s. Many Punjabi singer who say we are sikh have hardly have beard on there face for example Malkit Singh, Balwinder safri , Daler mahendi, Jassi sidhu . I am just given example of few who wear turban only But what about other ethicâ€™s & rules which should be followed by Sikh sonâ€™s. If I will give the example of cutsurd singer then the list will never ends. I can give you one more of film ((http://store.yahoo.com/nehaflix/kabkhuskabgh1.html)) U will see fun of Sikhâ€™s in this film. Girls are trimming their hair without no hesitancy few of them cut down their hair to boy cut hairstyle also. They have started drinking, smoking going out pubs coming late to their houses because of this modernization. Parents are loosing there control over there children.childrens are marring with other religion group. Some time parents against this Which is good but sometime parents just see that person is from good family & donâ€™t see that it is from outer religion. Solution---- If you frankly ask the solution of this problem then there is quick solution for it but it can be changed with time with tough decision to be taken if we wants that our children should follow there religion. People who have cut down there hair should not be given right to participate in any Sikhism big things like voting in gurdwaraâ€™s posting any position in any gurdwara comety. If u will see boy have trim there beard Or girl there hair then he or she should be not given permission to enter gurdwara boundaries I know itâ€™s tough but at least we have to do something People who do this type of they who are destroying our religion should also loose something. If one person is pure gursikh & other has trimmed or cut down his hair diff priority should be given because he gone to his guruâ€™s path. Good smart turbaned wear Sikhâ€™s should come forward & should be shown in music videos of bhangra it will make people change their mind. At last we have to stand together to pray to god to give good commonsense to their followers to go thereâ€™s guruâ€™s path otherwise Sikh people will be history only & in few years only books are only available for Sikhâ€™s no practical Sikh would be there. ....................................................................................................... 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
