Sorry i wont be voting for this because i dont believe darbar sahib is a "wonder of the world" for any aesthetic reason. The artictecture is nothing special, and for the most part there is a lot of tacky material usage in the buildings.

I wouldnt even put it in the top 1000 let alone top 7. No offence. Its a great place for sikhs, for obvious reasons. But thats about it. I think.

Im pissed off at us sikhs because we make it seem like such an awesome thing, but really, it isnt, at least in terms of construction.

If we really wanted to make it wicked, we could.

If we really wanted to make it wicked, we could.

sexy_singh, you may not be aware, but we already have some Sikhs who are very busy doing exactly that - they are attempting to do 'wicked sewa' on such buildings in the name of 'preserving Sikh heritage'.

By the time they finish their 'sewa', these Gurdwaras will become simply giant bathrooms with pleasant background music, paved from floor to ceiling with bright green bathroom tiles. Not forgetting the amazing super-duper filtration system donated by some rich businessmen (in the name of even MORE 'sewa') which will 'purify' the 'Sarovar'; we can look forward to 'good clean water'. Oops, almost forgot to mention the blue telfon-laden paint (excellent for waterproofing), Dulux white emulsion paint (great for covering up unsightly frescos, mosaics and murals), the 'solid gold' panels (...which are mysteriously turning GREEN - one for the alchemists to check out!!), and last but not least - cheap cement!!!

This line has to be a classic...

"If the Golden Temple is chosen as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, it will put Sikhs and the Golden Temple on the global map, with the combination of World-Wide television exposure, lasting tourism and image benefits."

Image benefits....are you takin the pi$$? Everytime Sikhs manage to recover from their last bout with plastic surgery on their 'image', along comes another event where self-proclaimed 'Panthic Gursikhs' either bomb a plane, kill people over tables and chairs, kill their relatives in the name of honour, or start riots over some play that even the critics had dismissed as shyte. It appears some 'Sikhs' have better methods of putting Sikhs on the 'global map' - and its quick and efficient too!

Is there much point voting for a giant bathroom (that is slowly sinking) in the middle of a gigantic swimming pool? Where (if lucky), one may hear scripture being sung to 1960's Bollywood tunes and where the 'Head Granthi' appears to be sacked on a weekly basis...

Once again, no offence intended, just revealing the glory of the 'Panth' as it stands today.

...its Friday...perhaps its time I treated myself to a Crunchie! :oops:

By the way - this entire intiative is a premium-rate phone call driven one. When you call it costs you 50p (about $1) not 0.5p as Phaldip claims. There really isnt any merit in this other than to line the pockets of the people behind this orgnaisation.

Veer ji, would you kindly expand on the line in bold. I do not wish to 'guess' as to what you are tryig to say, as i could be very wrong because i have failed to understand due to the lack of my own ignorence.
