AjeetSinghPunjabi posted a topic in GURBANI | SCRIPTURES | REHAT | HISTORYMahabharat , one of the two great epics of india , describes the story of fight of two group of cousins : kaurus and pandus . They're half cousins . Kaurus are older and more in number (100) than pandus (just 5). Also kaurus have kingdoms , pandus don't or not that great . Pandus are righteous and humble, but kaurus always stir <banned word filter activated> and want to oppress pandus . So they organize a dice game in which pandus lose everything , including their wife , draupadi. One of the kaurus bring draupadi dragging by her hair in the hall where dice game is being played, because she's now a slave, and tries to strip her naked. Her honor is preserved by divine intervention. Somehow draupadi resolves matter by winning over favor of father of Kaurus . Father of kaurus give pandus everything back. But kaurus are not happy to see they are unable to bully their younger cousins. So they say , pandus have 3 options to resolve conflict 1) war, or 2) dice game , again Pandus play dice game again and now this time they lose, they're supposed to take exile of 12 yrs . So pandus go in exile and kaurus are happy . But after 12 yrs, when mahabharat war happens, pandus win , kaurus die and pandus come to take the throne. So now you must be wondering what this has to do with hindus and sikhs. Well, we can't deny sikh and hindu are both dharmic religions, i.e in a way, we're cousins. So its like sikhs are pandus and hindus are kaurus. Our women folklore's were brutalized by angry hindus in 80's and you can say our community has been in exile (foreign countries and not in homeland punjab as much). So , now war with hindus is remaining and then we take the throne. After winning PS: I am not saying hindus are enemies . Just my imagination running wild lol
