  1. emergency advice - Breaking off Engagement

    Is skincare overr... no, I'm not going there. Bro, this is not good, and your reason for ending it is spurious at best. I'm not going to kick you while you're down, but if you do decide to end it, go away for a while and do some maturing.
  2. Guru Granth Sahib Ji on Sex outside marriage

    I would hazard a guess the contributors to SGGS Ji assumed -- to co-opt an American phrase -- that some truths are self-evident. I would think an examination of the spirit of the discourse in SGGS Ji can be extrapolated to other less defined areas of human conduct that aren't as explicitly defined in scripture.
  3. How important is height

    There's a distinction between working for the Man in modern times (and everything that entails), and labouring in tandem with family and loved ones on one's homestead, nurturing more than just a bank account. Beggars can't be choosers, but the distinction is real.
  4. It's mostly a South Asian custom, isn't it? I know a few Iranian and Lebanese people, and they turn their nose up at some of the things that pass for culture amongst the Muslim communities in our neck of the woods. It's not even a Sunni or Shia thing, although the Lebanese I know are Shia, lol. There are a few constants across the Islamic continuum regardless of geography, but the guys I'm acquainted with are day and night different to the likes of the Mirpuris and the Bangla crews.
  5. Hindunised Sikhs

    Indian Sikhs (as in those living back home), not including the observant, are pragmatic about their methods of worship and their general belief system. It's very similar to what we have in the West with "cultural" Christians. I would never say it's pakhand, but it's more of ceremonial / being seen to be doing the right thing, mentality. I'd say there's a greater sense of devotion for the particulars amongst NRIs.
  6. Please, help me. I'm really destroyed.

    Some of you need to watch The Notebook. Love is forever. 😀
  7. Moving to a Sikh neighbourhood

    Anywhere I can detect the aroma of tarkah as I'm walking past. 😂
  8. What are your thoughts on the attitudes of cut-haired Punjabis raised by 2nd or 3rd generation children of immigrants in a predominantly white middle class manner? Is there a chasm between that group and their perception of 2nd or 3rd generation Punjabis who are raising their kids in a religious and culturally orthodox manner?
  9. Daaj/dowry question

    Yes, I'd like to echo the above suggestion that your objection might be interpreted as envy on your part. Tread carefully.
  10. What are the origins of the fefty? I'm guessing the military.
  11. If we used the same tactics of mocking them by using their religious terminology and ways, they'd throw one of their infamous hissy fits.
  12. Would A Transgender Amritdhari Sikh Be A Singh or Kaur?

    True. That doesn't mean there's something inside of them that doesn't crave the Guru. How they manage to get there is anybody's guess.
  13. Would A Transgender Amritdhari Sikh Be A Singh or Kaur?

    That's fine. You're an excellent contributor to this forum, and I respect your opinions. You know I'm not one for advocating degeneracy and the kind of nonsense that passes for modern life in certain circles, but sometimes we forget that behind the ideologies and the loud voices, there are people like you and I who are just trying to make sense of it all, and maybe I'm being naive, but I'd like to think a bit of understanding and compassion for people goes a long way. I'm not suggesting we start conducting Anand Karaj ceremonies for trans people, lol.
  14. Would A Transgender Amritdhari Sikh Be A Singh or Kaur?

    That's harsh, bro.
  15. The Jagmeet Singh thread

    Womandeep, or for the gender uncertain, Xirdeep.
  16. The Jagmeet Singh thread

    Then pretend he was joking in order to save face. 😂
  17. toddlers kachera

    I genuinely thought the kids were 2, 3, and 5 months, lmao. I went back and reread the original post, and it makes sense now, because unless she was growing the poor kids in plant pots, there's no way they could be that young! That's fine; my mum dressed me in bana when I was 5. I had a tiny dastaar, mini kirpaan, chola, etc., on special religious occasions. Still, I would sound a warning that very young children shouldn't be wielded as religious accessories designed to virtue signal one's religious adherence. They aren't an extension of their parents' religiosity. Knowing our mindset as a community, we are prone to prioritising the external over the internal, and in that respect I'd argue since the child isn't fully aware of why they're being dressed up in that way, there's no spiritual benefit in doing so, because it's not a conscious choice on their part. However, if we're talking about "training" children to become accustomed to our ways and traditions, then starting them out early is a good thing.
  18. A great day to be Brown / Black

    You're that American Punjabi cuck who worships goreh, aren't you? Your name escapes me. Your prodigious use of LOL and undeniable air of mental retardation gave you away. Why don't you post with your regular account? We can get better acquainted. 😀
  19. toddlers kachera

    It's one way to get very young children to resent their religion and their traditions from the get-go. What form of cognition does a child of a few months possess that he or she could possibly be judged to be adhering to the particulars of their faith in that way? At that age it's akin to dressing up little dolls and showing them off to family and friends. I understand the need to start them off early, particularly in these irreligious times, but start with naam before anything else.
  20. A great day to be Brown / Black

    So you're back to agreeing with me that the man on the street is enabling these individuals into power, lol? Befqoof. You don't know your chittar from your elbow. Bandhar.
  21. A great day to be Brown / Black

    The white leadership. The politicians and the well-connected. There's a huge difference between the everyday man and woman and the people in charge.
  22. A great day to be Brown / Black

    Yes, they're what's commonly termed as the Ashkenazi Jews, who have Central European roots and congruous genetic features fairly similar to Anglo Saxons. There's another subgroup termed as Sephardic Jews, who resemble the Spanish and Portuguese.
  23. A great day to be Brown / Black

    The Labour Party will provide Britain with its first Prime Minister from a Muslim background as the Muslim population of Britain surges past the 10% mark in the coming decades. Dependent on various social situations, we will eventually see the Islamic equivalent of an anti-Semitism law. When that happens, just know that's the landmark moment that will herald the beginning of the squeeze on all non-Muslim minorities in Britain. Certain foolish, misguided whites will enable their own destruction, and drag down the rest of us with them. The seeds are being sown as of now. As amusing as it is to see the racists so agitated at this admittedly sound bit of science, it's a small piece of the puzzle in the larger scheme of things. I don't expect the kind of people who struggle to see what'll happen by the end of next week to be capable of recognising and extrapolating current developments decades into the future.
  24. In Canada? That's a shame. I thought there'd be at least a few who are fighting the good fight.
