    Jobless

    I can fully understand were you coming from.Whats important is your health and mental state. Do whatever it takes to get yourself in a good happy place dont pressure yourself into work if your unhappy at work it will make it worst . Get all the help you need. In time everything will workout fine as you have Waheguru on your side. When it comes to job/careers etc I think there is an added pressure on our community and Most Asians especially in the West as we are judged by the job we have . For example you can be a doctor/IT consultant and you will be considered a great person regardless of who you are as person , If yo have a low end job your not valued much despite being a good person which is just wrong. In my case I graduated with a 2:1 honours degree in computing back in 2011. Since Graduation I have been unable to get IT or any office job. I current work at Waitrose (been there for 8 years now) I earn about £8.20 an hour which is not alot when compared to my cousins and friends etc who have also graduated and our on 32-45k a year. My cousin/aunties/uncles absolutely love bragging about this and try to make me feel small. Honestly I have not time for them. I maybe on low wage and my job may not be great but I work hard and do my job to a great standard. As for the future I am still searching and would like job that has decent pay where I can buy my own house and get married etc. I have had plenty of Interviews last one was for an IT Helpdesk job where over 100 applied and only 20 were interviews I was one of 20 that were interviews but did not get the job. The IT job market is very competitive . I have even applied at banks for customer service roles. I have done voluntary Work IT back in 2013. I did my placement year as part of my degree in 2009 which went terribly wrong as 5 months into my placement the company had finical difficulty adn had to let me go however I volunteered to work for free to gain full credits towards my degree and to gain experience. The company did not give me enough work and most of the time i spent doing nothing for 7 months. I did like it it all and it really put me off the IT/computing. So its been a struggle and at times which me have low self esteem . Since July 2017 I was dealing with anxiety and depression (caused by many other reasons and not just work) I felt low and , tearful at times but now I feel alot better. Hopefully things will get better. I have faith in Waheguru which has got me thought the bad times. Most Important thing i have learnt which we should all apply is that dont compare yourself to others which can be easily done with social media etc we are all on on our pathway to life. focus on your own journey and do what it take be happy .

    Moving to a Sikh neighbourhood

    that might be the case in the old days but todays Sikh/Punjabi want the finest things in life and there gardens are no exceptions, they are well maintained. I think the next step for us Punjabi's would be to invest /buy into the UK farmland. farming/ agriculture is in our blood.

    Moving to a Sikh neighbourhood

    I would say the hardcore fontline Sikhs are immigrants and old uncles with the few youths . Most of the UK lack that traditional shere Punjab vibes. Some can barely speech Punjabi lol

    Hindunised Sikhs

    I have also met a few Sikhs in India and even in the UK who follow elements of Hinduism and vist Mandirs when you ask them why they reply back by saying god is one which is fair enough but that contradicts itself as they many gods in Hinduism which have different meanings. There is no harm in learning and incorporating the good elements of Hinduism but its when you incorporate such things as fasting , the cast system and all these other rituals which go against Sikhism. karva chauth is a prime example . its a sexist ritual and does not promote gender equality which Sikhism does yet some Sikhs even in the UK follow this ritual to the T . Its primary a north Indian Hindu thing and even Hindu's from the Gujarati community laugh at this ritual.

    Moving to a Sikh neighbourhood

    Come to Wolverhampton, we have large Sikh/Punjabi population in this city. we have about 7-8 Gudwara's. The majority of Sikhs live in upperclass area's and are well educated holding good jobs. The Muslim population is below average with an even small Hindu population . I am actually surprised there more Hindu's in the UK then Sikh(according to the latest. census) I guess they live in area's like Wembley Leicester etc.

    Sikhs in Dubai and the UAE

    There is really good Gudwara in Jabar Ali . The Sikh population is low in Dubai but there are Sikhs there.

    Here's why sikhs should stop marrying hindus altogether !!

    I would say hold more Parchaar's for no Sikhs in different languages so they can understand the true meaning of Sikhism . This way you will attract non Punjabi;s aswell to Sikhism.

    yeah could be the fact that my Aunty was devoted Siki but my uncle followed her ways in Sikhi and embraced it . People on here think that Sikhi could die off if they marry a Hindu/ sehajdhari sikh , person but it can also flourish. Where I do think its wrong to marry is if the Hindu is pure devotee Hindu and does not accept Sikhi. like I said before I am only Bharmin by name. even then I dont accept it as I am against the caste system. I dont think any of my family members have had the holy ceremony(as in Baptism ) that Bharmin's have. Also a Bhramin are not meant to leave India. all NRI's who claim to be Bhramins are not actual not.

    I can understand your concern due to you experience and the rapid rise of RSS/Shiv Sena whom do not represent all Hindu's I see them nothing more then government sponsored terrorist organisation. Sadly the city in you live in Mumbai is full of RSS/Shiv sena supports who believe in Hindu supremacy. you are right every religion has its right to define themselves and other faiths cannot define your religion and belief system for you.

    It was about 20 years ago. I do agree that Both Bharmin and Jatts think they are superior then then rest and would marry within there own cast to keep hold of there linkage which is wrong as feel the cast system has no place in today society. The biggest flaw in Hinduism is the cast system. why should person cast dictate from birth till death what value they hold in society .Were all born as mortal Human's are action in are waking life define who we are and not the cast. system If your born a Bahrmins that does not your autonomically make you self righteous,powerful and closer to god then say someone who is of a lower cast which sadly many still Brahmins think they do. I have know some Bhramin's who will not eat a a lower cast person house. its totally wrong. There are certain temples in India were lower cast cant enter which is BS as we know god does not discriminate. in The UK i feel its not as bad but some Brahmins in the UK can come across as arrogant and would be totally against inter-cast marriage. I hate these kind of Brahmins. The Punjabi Hindu's I have across irrespective of there cast have more respect towards Sikhism and feel more comfortable attending there local Gudawara. I dont think there is thing as Sikh Brahmin ?

    Here's why sikhs should stop marrying hindus altogether !!

    So your basing all Hindu and Hindu- Sikh marriages about this this incident and your personal experience living in Mumbai which is the home of RSS/Hindvita (or whatever they are called ). Let me turn this around into a positive view against your negative view based on my experience. My uncle who is from Hindu background (Hindu Bharmin) married a Sikh women (arrange marriage) a few years later my Uncle become Amritdhari Sikh, His son and daughter are both Amritdhari Sikh,and proudly wear a dastar. There a few Hindu-Sikh marriages in my family which are going well One could say that if person visit a Gudwara and bows down to the Sri guru Granth Shaib they are Sikh no matter what there surname or religious background is. I dot not consider myself a non Sikh even thou by name I am Hindu Bharmin but my beliefs and culture is more inline with Sikhs. Even thou I am not fully religious I know more about Sikhism then the average Sikh. Do i think its right for me to marry a Sikhg Girl ? yes because of knowledge of Sikhi and my beliefs towards Sikhisim (like i said before i do not consider myself a non Sikh.) I would want my kids to follow and learn more about Sikhism and Punjabi culture. I would more likely have more trouble marrying a strict Hindu as they disagree with my religious views etc, Now they are Sikhs who are just Sikhs by Name. The smoke weed, get intoxicated know nothing about Sikhi. they are like "yo blood I am Sikh yo look at my blinked out Khanda neckless Jatt for for life you get me fam " these kind of Sikhs are more problem and danger to Sikhi and could ruin sikh families. However where I do agree your point against marrying a Hindu if the Hindu family has no knowledge of Sikhi, never been to Gudwara, unwilling to bow down to Sri Guru Granth Shaib and would want to convert there wife/Husband to Hinduism. Name means nothing its whats in the heart that counts . Just look at Bhai Mati Das for an example.

    How to get Youth in to sikhi

    Things like Football camps maybe even a national Gudawara football league with Gudawara's across the country competing against each other would be great idea. From there you could set up self-defence classes (the art of Gatka) Punjabi reading and writing sessions. lots can be done. Also I feel its a good idea to send our kids to Sikh schools such as the Khalsa academy where the kids will learn about Sikhism form young age and hold the values and respect which we hold in our culture . The Khalsa academy welcomes all and teaches all the academic curriculum other comprehensive schools teach so its a win win situation. Start them off at young age i say. http://www.khalsaacademiestrust.com/

    Christianity in UK

    In general the UK Christian population is becoming atheist, Islam is having more of Impact followed by Sikhism.In my city we have strong Sikh population followed by muslims and Christianity. The hindu population is not low by any means but there is only one Hindu temple which is run more like business then place of worship. The opening hours are very limited, 10am till 12pm and 5 PM till 8PM. The temple has access to sky spots and the pundit would rather watch cricket then do his job lol. Most Hindu's in my city opt to to the Gudwara's instead. Fair play to them.
