  1. Just been informed of some very sad news. Bhai Sahib has passed away. Update from fb page EVERYTHINGS 13 ANNOUNCEMENT VaheGuru Ji Ka Khalsa, VaheGuru Ji Ki Fateh It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jagraj Singh, founder of Everythings 13. Jagraj Singh was diagnosed with stage four inoperable cancer in December 2016. We request all to respect the privacy of Jagraj Singh’s family and the Everythings 13 team during this period. Any further information will be shared only by Everythings 13. VaheGuru Ji Ka Khalsa, VaheGuru Ji Ki Fateh
  2. These sum up the Dhumma or as I like to call him - Gimli (but only in looks) from LOTR , he has helped bring DD Taksal to it's knees. and the icing on the cake
  3. * CROWDFUNDING PAGE TO SUPPORT JAGRAJ SINGH’S FAMILY * On the 20th July 2017, our dearest brother and friend, Jagraj Singh, lost his fight against cancer. In the immediate aftermath, we celebrated his life, the wonderful legacy he established and heard some amazing stories of the positive effect he had on so many lives. The family of Jagraj Singh, his friends, peers and colleagues at Everythings 13 have been humbled by the love and support of the Sangat and have found much strength in this. Through love and compassion in the Sangat, many people have also asked about setting up fundraising pages, crowdfunding pages and generally asking how they can support the family of Jagraj Singh. These requests have prompted a small group of Jagraj Singh and Sukhmani Kaur’s close friends to set up a public fundraising page to support Jagraj Singh’s family. The aim of this fundraising page is to try and help Sukhmani Kaur pay off the family's mortgage and finance the children’s long- term education. We invite everyone who was inspired by Jagraj Singh to contribute, however small or large. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/jagrajsinghsfamily (Please note, this is the only fundraising effort with the approval of Sukhmani Kaur. It has been organised by friends of Jagraj Singh and Sukhmani Kaur and is not connected to Everythings13 or any other affiliated organisation)
  4. A friend shared this with me today. I see they have already held classes in East London (weekly ones to follow) and plan a camp in Coventry.
  5. Way too much Tamo Gun being expressed on this site, no wonder why it only has a handful of hardcore posters now and the MODS are clearly super lax - good or bad depending on the age of visitors coming to learn about a Sikhi. How about STAMPING an 18+ sign or warning before logging in, just so they know what type of language might be used on the site. Possibly requires a separate post
  6. Absolutely agree, I hope Sikh Channel perform a fund raising activity for Sukhmani Kaur and their 3 children, one who is only a few weeks old. *EDITED*
  7. Is it stamped on their heads or do you have a specially designed nose to sense Jaat Paat?
  8. “Only SatGuru Ji can give or take life away and they are never wrong, only perfect. In all the Seva that Guru Ji allowed me to do of his beautiful Panth, I’ve made many mistakes and I ask forgiveness from the Sangat. If the Guru’s message has touched you and you feel it’s the truth, I urge you to follow that truth and become a GurSikh as none of us knows how long we have left. Please do Ardaas that Guru Ji gives me a place in his Charan and keeps my family and the Panth in Chardi-Kala. May the Panth flourish, even if I am finished, this is pure joy for me.” Jagraj Singh..
  9. Thanks, is that a new feature or was it always present? Can't believe I missed it..
  10. I would urge everyone not to like the post.
  11. can the mods capitalise the 'S' in Singh please...
  12. Glad the protest went ahead. People should continue to live their lives as per normal otherwise these Islamists have won and it had the support of the Police. Positive comments from members of the public in supporting Sikh tweets soon after the terrible events. http://metro.co.uk/2017/06/04/sikh-temples-open-their-doors-to-london-bridge-attack-victims-6683170/
  13. spread the word https://en-gb.facebook.com/SikhFederationUK/ **1984 JUNE RALLY UPDATE FOLLOWING LONDON TERROR ATTACK** Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Having discussed arrangements for the Remembrance and Freedom event with the Metropolitan Police last night and this morning we have come to the mutual decision that the event TODAY (Sunday 4 June) WILL CONTINUE. This sends a STRONG message to all terrorists that they will NEVER STOP us remembering the tens of thousands of Sikhs who lost their lives in 1984. It will also be an opportunity to remember and to stand shoulder to shoulder with the innocents killed and injured in the last few weeks in Manchester and London. In recognition of the policing and security situation we have DECIDED that the event will be a static event in Trafalgar Square until 4.30pm. All coaches and those travelling by public transport should go directly to Trafalgar Square (nearest tube stations – Charring Cross/Embankment). We are negotiating the best drop off points for coaches for Trafalgar Square. Probably Pall Mall and Pall Mall East. Federation of Sikh Organisations Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
  14. Can the mods update the title, their will no longer be a march from Hyde Park, a gathering will still take place at the usual place - Trafalgar Square..

  16. The choice is present, no one is forcing them to drink tea and we do not want to go down the road of reading labels, calorie counting and so on. What next ban kheer to satisfy the health conscious or those with health conditions or alter the equal ingredients in Degh, do we think people questioned Mata Khivi when she distributed Kheer as per Balwand?? The correct terms I believe for small quantities of Degh is 'savaia' and for more 'gehra gapha'.
  17. Tried accessing these and both seem to be down, anyone else having the same experience? This site can’t be reached www.srigranth.org took too long to respond. Search Google for sri granth org ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT and for http://www.gurugranthdarpan.com/ Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server.
  18. The interface, ease of use and search functions are more user friendly on Srigranth.org relative to SearchGurbani site. On my Android tablet, I found it impossible to effectively look up tuks despite using all the search options.
  19. Srigranth.org is still down...obviously before Feb. MESSAGE TO USERS: A number of websites, including srigranth.org, on this server are currently not working as the server machine had completely failed in the beginning of Feb 2017, while machine managers were on vacation. While we are back it will take time to restore the websites. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please bear with us, as it will take some time. SUGGESTED ALTERNATIVES WHILE THIS WEBSITE IS BEING RESTORED: IF YOU OWN IPHONE OR IPAD: INSTALL "Isher Micromedia" App from App store and use it. This App has been available for quite some time and has matured. However, improvements will happen in the future IF YOU OWN AN ANDROID DEVICE (phone or tablet): INSTALL "Gurbani Explorer" App from Google Play store and use it. This App is a beta version. Please report bugs if you notice. WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM ABOVE DESCRIBED APPS: These Apps are complex databases of multiple Sikh scriptures (Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Dasam Granth, Kabit & Vaaraan by Bhai Gurdas, and important writings by Bhai Nand Lal) in Gurmukhi, Devanagari and Roman, with their multiple translations that can be searched and read with ease. Apps use multiple easy to understand icons that are needed to be tapped for making selections. After searching the desired text, the user is presented with multiple reading choices. Not knowing what is possible, one may not make the maximum benefit of these App. Exploration is highly recommended. In the home page users make selection out of available choices. Once out of home page, the users will be in one of three kind of pages (1) Search-page, (2) Results page(s) and (3) Reading page(s). It is important to realize that possible options and actions will depend on the kind of page you are in.
