  1. "I Get Out"

    Watch the video and read the verses "I Get Out" The song that speaks of how false this world we inhabit is and how maya has crept into every walk in society. We as the 'Khalsa' have the antidote to this disease but we are the ones that are most affected by it. From the management of our religious and political institutions and down to the way we live our own individual lives, we embrace 'Maya' and forget the very purpose we are on this earth for. If we can be brave enough to 'get out' then we would surely be in position to achieve our goals as community. 'Maya' is the very reason we are struggling to win this war against a system that is designed to suppress our souls and imprison our minds. For all those people within our own community who continue to let us down, we can bet that 'Maya' is the enchantress that is used to capture their souls. For the ones that truly liberated themselves and captured our hearts and souls throughout the history of the world. One thing they shared in common, they did not allow 'Maya' to touch them. Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, Malcom X, Black Panthers, Bhagat Singh, Muhammad Ali, Lauren Hill, Kartar Singh Saraba, Tupac Shakur, Shaheeds of 1984 and countless revolutionaries have led the way but are we brave enough to 'Get Out'. Is it the forces that work against us or is it our own weakness and desire for 'Maya' that stops us from achieving our collective goals? How do we defeat this, living in a world that is governed by a system that celebrates and worships 'Maya' (Capitalism). IMG_2751.MOV
  2. Jagmeet Singh is new leader of the NDP Canada

    In Punjabi there is saying 'moot vich machiyaan maardaa'. You are doing just that! The guy is an Amritdhari Singh who happens to be the grandson of 'Seva Singh Theekriwala' (famous freedom fighter during the British Raj). He comes from pedigree that is not brought up to remain silent. He was awarded the 'Sikh of the Year in 2013' but was refused a visa to travel to Amritsar receive it because of the voice he raised against the 1984 state sponsored genocide. He has not backed down to this day. 'Hardly the actions of someone who is repressed'! The Canadians gravitate to Jagmeet Singh because he is transparent, honest and is brave enough to take on difficult issues. All of these qualities are shaped by his faith and heritage. This why he is a success and this is the reason why so many other pretenders who run Gurdwara comitees and so called politicians in the U.K and Punjab fall short. They are neither committed to their faith, to their people or brave enough to raise their voice in protest. Too scared to rock the boat!
  3. Jagmeet Singh is new leader of the NDP Canada

    He's not a politician he is an activist who was persuaded by his friends to enter politics and make a real change. There's nothing untrustworthy or sly about Jagmeet Singh. He has never compromised his Sikhi or beliefs along his meteoric rise in politics or his youth. He is truly a lion amongst today's many sheep. "Sava Lakh Khalsa"

  6. Delhi Girls:Take On Sardar

    To understand the reasons for your frustration you must understand that there is no platform in India which allows for a full Gursikh to make moves in modelling or the movie industry. The bigwigs simply do no want to see Sikhs in any positive light. Harry Baweja was discouraged at every step from making the Chaar Sahibzade movie by all the producers he pitched his project to. He eventually ended up with Ponty Chadda who agreed to finance the movie out of his respect for the Sikh faith. Even the likes of the late Jagjit Singh (Gazal Singer) was mocked for supporting the Turban and full Beard when he first arrived at the doors of the producers in Bombay. I mean this guy was just voice and they still couldn't tolerate his appearance. There are powers who work tirelessly to discredit and demoralise Sikhs but I do understand that the Sikhs in Punjab do have to answer for their own actions. But this all goes back to the silent assault on the Sikh which leaves him with a extremely low self esteem.
  7. Delhi Girls:Take On Sardar

    You missed my point completely. The point was not about a handful individual Indians who are well informed or have the capability to forge their own opinions about Sikhs from their own independent research. My point is that the people in power in India have an agenda to defame Sikhs and feed their false narrative to the majority. You could see in the video that there was one guy who was well informed about Sikhs but all the others had been drip fed a negative viewpoint of Sikhs. The same tactics have been seen in Pakistan with their attitude towards Pathans and Bangladeshis and the tactic has been seen in England against the Irish. Also I have seen 'Rocket Singh' and the character falls in line with the ideal secular Indian Sikh that is acceptable to the Indian state. The main character in the movie could have been any Ramu, John or Abdul but he was portrayed as a turbaned Indian who trims his beard, womanises and drinks alcohol. Hardly a positive Sikh but more a reality of majority Punjabis who identify themselves as Sikhs.
  8. Delhi Girls:Take On Sardar

    These kind of opinions are formed from a slow exposure of anti-Sikh propaganda. To make any Bollywood movies depicting a Sardar they must fall into 1 of 3 boxes. 1. Make the Sardar into a loud comical clown that loves to drink alcohol, eat chicken and dance at the sound of dhol beat. He has to wear comical shiny turban and support a comical beard and be of very low intellect. 2. The Sardar has to be a ultra aggressive hero who is always ready to fight in unbelievable scenarios. This is usually in war film where his national pride is above his faith. 3. The Sardar is a naive terrorist misled by Pakistan and usually supports a full beard with orange gol dastaar. Usually any movies depicting 1984. All of these categories are designed either to make a Sikh to have extremely low self esteem and cut his hair and fade away into the masses or to channel his natural Sikh instincts of being a warrior to fight for Indian national pride and become ultra patriotic. As you can see none of the above promote a Sikh in India to promote his own distinct identity or rich history. This is why any Bollywood movies depicting Sikh History or Sikhs in a true light are never passed by the Indian sensor board or received positively. (Note the movie Black Prince was not promoted by any major Punjabi celebrity or Punjabi singers in India). The same goes for Punjabi music as all the big producers are Hindus in India. The young Sikh singers and song writers are forced into making material which promote drugs, gang culture and promiscuous behaviour. This is because the Punjabi music industry is the only music Industry in India where the Singer has to record and finance his own material and present it to a producer only to be told yes or no if the producer will promote the tape. They are at the mercy of the producer who usually has other motives to once again demoralise the Sikhs. The media I think we are all aware of only show Sikhs as Terrorists. So in short to be a Sikh in India you either have to be a 'Clown', 'Indian Patriot', or a 'Terroist'.There is no other opinion of Sikhs that can exist in India.
  9. Why sikh migration outside punjab is ultimate downfall of sikhi

    I already stated that the referendum has no legal biding on the government of India. It will however if successfull pave the way forward to United Nations to express the will of Sikhs. Also remember this is global referendum which will be conducted online so there isn't really anything the government India can do about this. Believe me the government of India is trembling as this is something that will put the spotlight on India in the international community. Remember this will also probably trigger Kashmir and other states to follow similar steps.
  10. Why sikh migration outside punjab is ultimate downfall of sikhi

    Steps are already being taken to move towards a Sikh homeland. 2020 referendum is going to happen. All we need for now is the Sikhs in Punjab to tick yes box in 2020. The rest of the problems such as negative Punjabi culture, cast issues, substance abuse and female infantacide can all be taken care of once we are in the driving seat. The problem lies in actually selling the referendum to the Punjabi Sikhs. It's only 3 years away and the last thing you want is for it to pass everybody by because it wasn't marketed and sold to them effectively. I also know that the referendum will have no legal binding on India but it will pave the way forward for phase 2 and will open up debate if it's successful. This for now is all we have and all we as individuals can do is help with spreading awareness.
  11. Why sikh migration outside punjab is ultimate downfall of sikhi

    All of the above problems you mention are not Sikh problems. In fact they are problems you inherit from the host nation- Hindu problems. When you live in land which is governed with laws to protect and promote Brahmin beliefs this naturally rubs off on the minority communities which live in the land. The same happens to migrants who live in the west only that secular hedonism rubs off on them . Now if we were to just imagine if the Punjab was governed by Sikhs and the laws in place promote and protect Sikh culture all the above problems disappear. It really bothers me when Sikhs start to finger point and take ownership to cast discrimination when we all know that this problem is nothing to do with us. Lastly as far as migration goes if Sikhs back in Punjab are flocking to other countries maybe they are unhappy with their lives back home. They have plenty of reason to be.
  12. The one thing that baffles me is how on earth did the Sikhs back in Punjab sign up to fight for the British during their campaigns in India after such a short period of time that had elapsed. Also why did they volunteer in masses to serve in the WW1 and WW2 to help the British again. The memories of annexation should still have been fresh in their minds. Also I find hard to digest this romanticised Anglo Sikh relationship of loyal Sikhs and a beautiful friendship nonsense that we are still fed today. Sometiing tells me the British still fear Sikhs to this day and view us as a threat as to why they still continue to stab us in the backs (1947, 1984 etc). Fast forward the events to the present day we are standing exactly where Duleep Singh and the Sikhs in Punjab were after the annexation. We are still facing the same struggle for independence. I think we really need to be more vocal about the British betrayal and stop sucking up to these cunning sweet faced devils. Going by our history can never and should not trust the British.
  13. Sartaj was the Duleep Singh for 2 hours. I had my reservations and felt it was wrong to portray such an important event in Sikh history with a well known celebrity as he would overshadow such an important figure in history. But believe me you forget who is actually playing the role. He also sings a song in the backdrop of the movie 'dardan wala desh' it cuts you in two. Don't worry about the slow pace as it's been done this way on purpose and you will understand this when you later reflect on the movie.
  14. I'm glad the movie lived up to your expectations penji. I'll probably take my parents to watch the Punjabi version. I couldn't fault the movie either. The initial slow pace and the subdued character of Duleep Singh gave the viewer a real feel of emptiness and lack of purpose in his early life. Whilst watching the start of the movie I felt that Sartaj may have been deliberately given limited dialogue because of the lack of acting experience but as the movie progressed and Duleep Singh became aware his faith and heritage you could see the confidence and awakening in his character. This is what really impressed me about Sartaj because he totally had me fooled from the first impressions. I don't understand the negative reviews from Hindustan Times as I truly have not seen any Bollywood production that has approached any historical chapter with the sensitivity and serious approach and pulled it off in it's delivery. I also had no idea that the budget was only 5 million as that kind of money in movie can be blown on just one set but I never felt that th movie was low budget as it ticked all the boxes such as script, dialogue, music, cinematography, costume, locations and big names personalities. I definitely didn't feel short changed and most importantly for me the movie has awoken something inside of me and has given me feel of being alone, betrayed and homeless. We possess everything yet have nothing.
