Recommended Posts

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Sangat Jeo :)

A few books on learning written and spoken Punjabi have been uploaded on SikhSangat's Scribd account. Perhaps those of us who are not familiar with Gurmukhi script, or those who want to improve their Punjabi vocabulary and general reading skills will find these self-study books useful. :geek:

From the Preface: "This course... is a complete language course which aims at helping you learn the colloquial variety of Panjabi... One of its major objectives is to help the learner take her/his linguistic skills to the level from where she or he is able to take charge of her/his own learning, become her/his own language teacher and attain higher levels without anybody's help. This course has been designed in such a way that you do not have to learn reading and writing at the same time as spoken Panjabi."

From the Preface: "Younger people may find this very helpful for learning to read Gurmukhi. It is based on the conversion method of learning Punjabi. According to this method, one learns to convert the Punjabi alphabet and vowels into corresponding English forms, the use of which the student already knows. It, therefore, enables a person to read Panjabi in about two weeks time. Learning by this technique becomes interesting because one starts reading and writing words the very first day."

This volume can be used in a general Panjabi language course as a supplement to conversational materials, or by itself in a course on the written language. A glossary and a brief Grammatical appendix have been added to make the reader self-sufficient. Three sections are in this volume -- the first section introduces the writing system, the second section presents selections of increasing difficulty, with vocabulary lists, explanations of Idioms, and exercises relevant to the materials read, the third section is more advanced and includes a one-act play for students wishing supplementary reading."

    • How come our elders/community don't talk about the Chota and Vadda Ghallūghārā? It seems to me that it is not something our youth know and its not something that is imparted to us by our elders, at least that was the case for me, my fellow friends, and my community growing up.
    • Pen Jee, as long  it is from Wahiguru´s side, He is all mercy, blessings, forgiveness, and above all akhoot prem da bhandaar. It is we with our actions who get far away from Him or get closer to Him. He is like the Sun, always stable, always shining and irradiating, with His infinite noor, and kirpa. It all depends on us, if we walk towards Him, we benefit from its warmth and Light, but if we turn our back to Him, we walk away from Him, and enter into the darkness of agyanta. Nevertheless, He is never ever revengeful as many think Him to be. Many fools, under the influence of their  deep rooted ahankar, or agyanta,  try to make a picture of Him with human feelings/attributes, such as anger, revenge, hatred, etc .... The Bani clearly says, He is Nirvair, means, He has no enmity with anyone. Do His Bhakti as much as you can, when your state of mind permits you to do so, only then, slowly and slowly you will fill yourself with His apaar kirpa. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
    • The ...E... life !!!!!   In this world of E-mails, E-ticket, E-paper, E-recharge, E-transfer and the latest E-Governance... Never Forget "E-shwar ( God )" who makes e-verything e-asy for e-veryone e-veryday.
       
      "E" is the most Eminent letter of the English alphabet. Men or Women don't exist without "E". House or Home can't be made without "E". Bread or Butter can't be found without "E". "E" is the beginning of "existence" and the end of "trouble." It's not at all in 'war'
      but twice in 'peace'. It's once in 'hell' but twice in 'heaven'. "E" represented in 'Emotions'
      Hence,  all emotional relations like Father, Mother, Brother, Sister,wife & friends have 'e' in them. "E" also represents 'Effort' & 'Energy'
      Hence to be 'Better' from good both "e" 's are added. Without "e", we would have no love, life, wife, friends or hope & 'see', 'hear', 'smell', or 'taste' as 'eye' 'ear', 'nose' & 'tongue' are incomplete without "e". Finally no 'Life' & 'Death' without "e". Hence GO with "E",   but without E-GO.
