Wearing Red Clothes

keshri is NOT a Khalsa colour Basanti i.e. Yellow is ...Guru HarGobind ji installed one Blue and One Yellow nishan sahib at Akal Takht not kesri and blue ...this is a recent trend since SGPC .

For this reason I don't wish for kesri nishan sahibs to flutter forever , just Nishan Sahib ...

What would you call the real Nishan Sahib; if you asked most people what it is; they'd say "2 Kirpans on the sides, a Chakram in between the Kirpans; with a Khanda in the middle"; however, the original Nishan Sahib was with a Kirpan, Shield, and Katar. Though DailySikhUpdates claims a Nishan Sahib existed since Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Amar Das Ji: http://dailysikhupdates.com/historical-evidence-of-the-puratan-symbol-on-nishan-sahib-pictures/

need to remove kesri from everywhere , why should we honour the gadaar's of the Kaum , The dogray (emphasis on dog) were of the ilk Guru Nanak Dev ji mentioned in Gurbani who take the form of the rulers (mughals in bani) but do their hindu rites undercover

If a light colour is required than use basanti ...or white

    • I think you've hit the nail on the head here. 
    • A solution is, if amrit-dharis followed rehit, IF, then, only then more people might want to be Singhs. When I say rehit, I don't mean just the paper rehit maryada people have now. I mean following the active lifestyle rehit like in the rehitnaamas, rehit that has been followed since Guru Hargobind. Doing things like learning archery, shooting, horse-riding etc Follow Gurus hukam of learning shastar everyday, and also learn martial arts. (See Nihang Singh dals for example) Instead of being people that religiously follow football and cricket matches, they would be involved in these activities. Then they would be an actual "practising" amrit dhari, as opposed to someone who took amrit just to do paat, which any sehajdhari or "mona" can actually do! Can gurdwaras and sikh associations organise such activities? Organising kabaddi tournaments isn't really going  to make sangat proper amrit dharis. However, organising kabaddi and wrestling training for sangat to be involved in would help! WE absolutely should not act like the disarmed sikhs of colonial times. Instead of becoming like the naamdharis who put the kirpaan symbol in the kanga, we should get out of this colonial compromise of not following martial rehit and get back to actually being Singhs. Can the community do this?
    • This man passed away he, his son and daughter in law were acting like God's gift. During family gathering/ prayer session at their house the old man literally frowned on seeing monehs. Daughter in law n his son spoke to everyone equally, but they forced others into keeping hair/ take Amrit. Not sure about my dad but my mum got compelled by the daughter's words n took Amrit. She was never happy kno wha am saying? Even today she speaks of leaving Amrit behind. I was a kid then never knew reasons why mum took Amrit. Anyways, the old man? Majority of his grandson's are moneh! When he died they all cut their hair. And his eldest granddaughter?? MARRIED A WHITE MAN KEEPS BOY'S HAIRSTYLE!!! (Daughter of his daughter in law)... SANGAT JIO! something to think about, why force/ compel n pester others? THEY ARE ADULTS AND KNOW ABOUT AMRIT/ PRAYERS!
    • actually due to working across town , Mum and Dad didn't have the same input like you think , he always had non-sikh friends growing up did minimal paat and when he went to uni predominately white friends. He has married a dastarwali bibi out of his choice (love marriage) she is also a coconut but will do the Indian thing if it suits her (I know birds of a feather). He refers to us as 'you Indians'  yep we have a good laugh at that. He's an architect so I guess he mixes with a certain type of people and is sniffy about his starting point which frankly he needs to get major ish kicked out of him since it was Mum's machine sewing and dad's grocery that paid for his ungrateful A$$ to get where he got.  Anyway because she is a socialising sikh he has started doing his banian and going to programs ...one good thing  But lately he tries to Lord it over Mum with his interpretation of what izzat and family values should be , of course he seems to believe that the Mother he abandoned should somehow be consulting him on how to proceed. kal ka shokaraa , akkl gitte'ch showing disrespect to his elders then wants to be the big I am SMH
