    Seems like you didn't know who you were marrying and now somehow the blame is with God? Sure that makes sense. This is your mess, you got yourself into it. Why blame anyone else? Gosh it seems like the weight of the world is riding down on your shoulders right now. Why should your wife "blend in"? Why don't your family "blend in"? Effort is a two way street home boy. Move out. Do whatever you've gotta do to save your marriage. Doesn't seem like you were ready to get married mate. It ain't a game. When sh-t gets tough, divorce?? Do you have a sister??

    you want to quote Gandhi to sikhs as a valid philosophy when that paedo <banned word filter activated> called Dasmesh pita ji a deluded rebel ? ... try growing a spine and seeing the world for what it is non-friendly to sikhi ...or anything Godly or good and decide to fight for right and justice for the oppressed otherwise what good is your sikhi ?... we are all supposed to bring light to this dark world ...not hide our God given jot under a kambal and turn a blind eye

    Did any one from this forum go to see it? I had went to watch it. Outside the cinema there was a handful of our brothers outside, trying to deter everyone from watching it... From what they had been told, and telling people was false. First of all, there was not an actor playing Satguru Nanak Dev Ji, it was an animated light. The movie was a collection of sakhia narrated and relived through the eyes of bhai mardana ji. It highlighted Satguru ji's messages to the world... the cinematography was awesome. The soundtrack was gurbani shabad kirtan. I still listen to it, and the version of the aarti mentioned above I find blissful. Okay, I can see the issue with actors/actress playing certain roles. But if you think with an open mind, its the first time someone has made a movie about Guru Nanak Dev Ji and put on it a worldwide level platform. A part from jesus christ, I don't think I've seen a movie of that calibre about any other faith. To me and what I have understood from gurujis teachings. Everything is temporary, and death is a reality. everything turns back into dust... the only thing that is true and constant is Waheguru! If we look at the world and history, people have argued about what jesus had looked like. Have these people listened and learnt from the bible?! I've heard people say about guru jis painting, this is the real roop of guruji (not too sure if was at gurudwara sisganj or bangla sahib) - But from my understanding, the body is a vessel and is temporary. I have not read or seen anywhere to worship the gurus processions and artefacts. Don't get me wrong when I see such items and shastars I bow my head out of respect as it had belonged to gurus. but the gurus have never said worshp them or material things. I saw the movie as re asserting what we have been taught. some of the core sikhi principles. It was a reminder of the love and greatness of guru nanak dev ji. Being an introvert and one who doesn't know how to express himself well, what I'm trying to say is if we look beyond the material things and try to understand on an open and deeper platform, maybe one day those seeking salvation will be blessed. I think it all starts with being humane with a combination of understanding what has been said in the bani and practicing it. Forgive me if I had said anything wrong. I'm still learning. I've joined this forum to learn through expressing my views. kindly correct me and help me understand if you disagree

    I’ve heard many of are uk jails are dominated by Muslims and many prisoners have converted to Islam solely to survive the hostile environments... I wouldn’t be suprised if they struggle to get such time to do path in such environments.... i feel sorry for them but do not support what they wanted to do.... an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.. lets hope waheguru will forgive there mistakes regardless of intentions...

    The Canadian Sikh Sangat is largely a post-84 sangat. The UK Sikh Sangat is largely a post-partition /post WW2 sangat. This has an impact on their collective psyches.
