  1. WJKK WJKF As part of a school project, I am doing Sikhi for religious education. Our essay focuses more on sects (Taksali, AKJ, 3HO, etc) I am doing Nihang, and many of my other class members are. I want to go further and actually explain how to join them. If you think about it, people will have stuff like their beliefs, how they were created, modern day nihangs. I want to do stuff like beliefs, how they were created, their contribution in 1984, Nihang isn't one sect (it relies on Nihang jathebandees), how to become a nihang yourself If anyone could help me I would appreciate it a lot. WJKK WJKF
  2. I agree with KhoonKaBlada, I don't think which gender it should come from, as long as the panj pyaare are fully amritdhari, etc.
  3. Can't that make you addicted to it?
  4. I went to the Gurdwara today and a singh asked me to serve prasad. I went to wash my hands and he wanted it in a bag. The bag wasn't strong enough so the prasad sort of made a hole. It fell on the floor and I picked it up. I gave the singh another bag to put it in. Then, a singhni came and asked for prasad. She asked for the one that fell on the floor and was on my hand. I told her it fell on the floor and she said it is ok. (It didn't fall on the floor for very long so I guess the 3 second rule counts?) It felt wrong for some reason. Can someone assure me what I did was correct/wrong?
  5. I learnt Javascript first and it was easiest (I started with web languages) I mainly looked at youtube tutorials at first since stuff like codecademy weren't around then. Having a look at codecademy now it looks pretty good for beginners. https://www.codecademy.com/ Now I got into C# maybe 2 years later and is probably the easiest program developing language for me at least. I highly suggest you start with C# and not C++. Good luck paji!
  6. While doing prashad seva yesterday, a bibi came to me and said if I could do 'bhog la prasad' in ardaas. She told me the steps but I still don't understand, so could someone post a tutorial in a 1) 2) format?
  7. They are probably rebuilding the site from scratch since backups could've been erased.
  8. That would be nice but wouldn't that cause protests?
  9. What is the actual purpose of it?
  10. Would it be alright to wear it without having any shastar/kirpan? I mainly use it to make the bottom half of my baana stick out a bit more.
  11. Good to hear that. Hopefully most of those Sikhs are following basic rehit and not making anyone point at us for negative reasons.
  12. https://instagram.com/p/BVR_b41lk2I/ (picture and info) https://instagram.com/p/BVSEqSaF5kE/ (cctv of the two bastards) Police have issued an appeal to find a man who took part in a violent robbery in which an elderly partially sighted Southall woman was attacked. Following the death of her husband in 2004, the family of 85 year old grandmother Avtar Kaur Man installed CCTV in her home so they could keep watch and have peace of mind knowing she was safe. On Wednesday 7 October, 2015, Avtar Kaur answered the door to two men who pushed their way in and began violently frisking her and ripping off her jewellery. They went on to ransack her home and dragged Avtar Kaur into a room by her legs, before running off with her jewellery and some cash, which Avtar had put aside to donate to a nearby Gurdwara. One of the two suspects, Ahsan Ali, was sentenced to 9 years in prison in relation to this robbery along with other offences. On BBC 1's Crimewatch Roadshow police appealed for help to trace the second suspect. The man is thought to be in his early 30s, has a large nose and sharp eyebrows. On the day of the robbery he was wearing a grey scarf and a navy blue hoody under a black jacket, which had a silver zip and black leather-look sleeves. He also wore black tracksuit bottoms with a distinctive red number ‘3’ on the right leg. He was wearing black and grey trainers.
  13. It's happened to me in the past but there's nothing you can do to make them stop really (in general, I don't mean taking them to the police).
  14. https://www.instagram.com/p/BU__8uOlmqR/ So what happened was, these 'people' were celebrating what happened to our brothers and sisters in 1984 (in a bad way, as in they loved the success of darbar sahib). The police blocked the other singhs from coming, but one singh behind shouts the jaikara while chasing them and they all start running. Akaaaaaaaal!
  15. Well as @jkvlondon said, if it was a short staff I don't think everyone will start running. I believe it was the power of the jaikara!

  17. I am always scared of these situations. I tie an elaborately tall dumalla so I am just scared if it gets wacked off on a sign or something.
  18. What do they mean by 'pointy' turban? Is that the style Guru Gobind Singh Ji wore?
  19. I've actually seen Singhs also do this. The worse part is the comments mention stuff like 'His hard work in defeating Punjab Militancy will be remembered'.
  20. I am just surprised kutha brar hasn't been assassinated yet.
  21. Koi gal ne. Thank you paaji for your help. This should get me started definitely!
  22. WJKK WJKF. There are many maryada's out there, such as the AKJ. However, I don't know which one is the right maryada and it get's a bit confusing. Some people say to do nitnem and others read bani. Which one is right? Is there like a link on where to get started? Thank you pyaare sangat ji!
