  1. What is so kind about this gesture? Sikh places of worship are still considered to be great places for learning, that is why their committees have to be extremely cautious how they conduct themselves. In view of all this, it is about time the morons stopped moaning and groaning about their young ones intermarrying non-sikhs when the adults are the very people responsible for it. They have no shame or brains.
  2. You made the right choice by removing the video. It is not nice to watch what happened. What about his wife's dignity, doesn't he care at all?
  3. Ah, you poor little devil! I understand your dilemma. You are the way you are because your mother watched crap on tv instead doing her Patt when she was expecting you, am I right? You have my sympathy.
  4. Yes, sucham is very important. The thingummies you mention above are supposed to observe sucham when cooking langar. It is similar to what one does in their own kitchen when cooking food for their families, whether one is an amarittary or not. When we recite our Pat from the Gutka sahib Ji, we observe sucham. The same principle applies when we cook our food. We must serve and eat it in suchet utensils. Our hands must be suchet. Ideally, while we are dishing out food, there must be one member of the family reciting Patt from memory. If this is not possible then we can play a CD reciting the Bani for total sucham. It is very important to listen to Bani when we are eating too.
  5. Just in case people don't know Mr Davinder Toor, he appears after 50 seconds or so in this very informative video.
  6. At 36 years old, it was as if life was just beginning for Amanjeet Singh "Sonny" Toor. His wife, Kamaldeep Kaur, had finally made the move four months ago to Phoenix from India, six years after his own immigration journey. Toor was friendly, happy and hard-working. Even his customers at the 7-Eleven where he worked thought so. "He was just starting his life and it was taken away from him," said Toor's cousin, Micky Gill. "This person took someone's life for just a few dollars. I don't think it was worth it. This family will suffer forever." Toor was shot dead early Monday by a masked man during an armed robbery at the convenience store, 1601 E. Southern Ave., in Phoenix. After moving Toor and another employee into a backroom, the robber shot Toor after a struggle for the gun, police said. The assailant then chased the other employee out of the store before returning to grab a bag of unknown contents, police said. Gill was among the family and friends who met with reporters Thursday morning at Phoenix police headquarters to plead for the public's help to find Toor's killer. He said he spoke with customers about Toor the day after his murder. "This was a very hard loss for us. He was a role model for most of us," Gill said, as Toor's widow sat nearby, tears shining on her cheeks. "Sonny was very well-liked, even by the customers. They said he was always joyous. He never got angry about anything." Phoenix police didn't publicly identify Toor as the victim until Thursday, when they also released snippets of surveillance video taken during the robbery. The 7-Eleven Corp. has raised the award to $11,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case. A Sikh man from India, Toor was part of a community of about 2,500 to 3,000 Sikh families in the Phoenix metro area. Rana Singh Sodhi, a Sikh and community activist, spoke on behalf of Toor's family, calling for the community to come together to find the perpetrator. "He handed over the money, but was still shot. It begs the question (of racism)," Sodhi said. "We are new immigrants in this area, but we request the community come out and help get this person behind bars." Sgt. Vincent Lewis said police were unsure if Toor's ethnicity was related to the attack. Sikh men are often targeted mistakenly as Muslims because of the traditional turban many adults wear. In Sikh culture, Sodhi said, the turban is a sign of trust and respect. He said he was frustrated that understanding about Sikhs has not grown in the years since the terror attacks. Traditionally, Sikhs do not cut their hair for religious reasons, believing that keeping hair unshorn is a sign of respect for the perfection of God's creation. Some modern Sikhs, like Toor, abandon the turban and long hair. "Fifteen years later and we are still not treated right," Sodhi said. "They come into our stores, give us the finger and shout, 'Go back to your country.' This is a common thing for us. Any terrorist attack that happens, we get affected every year. Our lives have not been the same since 9/11." "I can't know what (the killer) was thinking, but I am still working at my gas station, and we see this," Sodhi said. "The community needs to come up. Somebody must know. We are peace-loving. We stand for justice. That's what makes us Sikh." Officials seek public help The man police say robbed killed a clerk and robbed a 7-Eleven on Aug. 8, 2016. (Photo: Phoenix Police Department) Police described the shooter as male, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, face mask and red gloves. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Phoenix Police Department or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480-948-6377), or for Spanish, 480-TESTIGO (480-837-8446). Callers can remain anonymous. "This is a request for public assistance in the investigation of a homicide robbery," said Phoenix police Officer Vincent Lewis. The store where Toor worked is collecting donations for the family. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/phoenix-breaking/2016/08/11/police-id-clerk-shot-killed-south-phoenix-7-eleven-robbery/88566508/
  7. I have tried to read it unfortunately I can't read beyond the first line. It is really hard for me to read what Guru Sahib Ji is saying. But thanks for posting it.
