'Moore' is a tricky one. Bobby Moore is West Ham / East ham so quite possibly Ramgharia. But then again Roger Moore liked a drink so perhaps jatt. But Sir Patrick Moore liked looking at the stars and astrology jantar mantar so it would seem Khatri. Having said that, Bobby Moore was once arrested during a World Cup in South America for shoplifting dodgy jewellery.....so I'm voting *edited*.

Can I just ask, I understand that as amritdharis we should not follow or believe in caste system. The reason why our surnames are replaced with Singh and Kaur is to eradicate caste and discrimination. Then why is is that certain gursikhs still use their surnames i.e. sandhu, sanghera, sangha. lets look at anand kaarajs, even if the singhs/singhni's parents are amritdhari (mum and dad dastar vale) they'll still add their family surname onto the wedding cards...why?

Change your name to illegalbrahmin because casteist brahmins will love your nonsensical views about castes.

It was a joke showing the absurdities of it all. Next time I'll add a disclaimer forewarning you of a joke because you seem to be incapable of spotting one on your own.

Why are you so aggressive and rude? What happened to Gursikhs having sweet speech? Your tone is poisonous and unkind, you spread so much negativity. Please show other people some consideration and learn to convey your displeasure politely.

What other response can be expected from "intellectually bankrupt" individuals who have no self respect and make fun and laugh at their own religion.

I have zero tolerance for anyone who insult Sikhs and Sikhism,.

I think a lot of people keep their surname as to keep a connection with where they are from back home in India, being their pinds.

I think they are not purposely showing they are this caste or that, but to hang on to their ancestory roots which they are proud of.

But i hate it when there is discrimination due to caste in marriages and friendship. Caste de lagde.

It's why I keep mine. Also, so many Singhs on registers etc. that it makes it a lot easier if I just use my surname.

I understand, but since were amritdhari shouldnt our ancestory roots be Guru gobind singh ji, something to be proud of? .

I understand that at formal places i.e. Work, school etc the need to use surnames May arise but what about weddings, its reasonable for both families to be aware of surnames, but then why put it onwedding card? I mean gurdwara is not a social or formal setting so why be proud of that surname infront of guru ji when instead they've already blessed us with with a beautiful surname singh or kaur, so why not be proud of that (reason why i keep mentioning word proud bcuz there seems o be a strong association, unless there are other reasons for using surnames please share). ?

Moore Sikhs are Jatt. I agree we shouldn't look at caste in the ways of old, but I think adopting just simple surnames as Sikh and Kaur would put our gene pools at risk if you understand the logic. I think the use of as middle names and a bit of intelligence when it comes to caste is the best way forward.

'Moore' is not a jatt name. It is a baniya name. Baniyaas are the business community from UP and fairly dark and thick skinned. They converted to sikhism when they moved to Panjab to do business with the panjabis. They even speak the language and are intermarried with sikhs. I should know this because my mamma ie my mummy's brother's wife's sister is married to a baniyaa and his surname is is Moore so obiviously she is also a Moore. They are very friendly people and I just love how they cook. They live in humongous kothees and have butlers, cleaners and gardeners as employees. They are obviously very wealthy and they wear expensive clothes and eat plenty of mithayi. They drive huge motor cars usually with little curtains on their windows for privacy. They are very close knit community and I only get an invite to their functions very ocassionally even though I get along famously with my mummy's brother's wife's sister and the reason this is so is because we went to the same kindergarten. I have known her a long long time. She has three sons and five daughters and they have all attended the same kindergarten as us. When she got married she introduced my parents to her friend's brother's uncle's neighbour's who had five sons who are all top businessmen. Thery are all married with children and my parents decided to engage me with one of these childern and now we are happily married for nearly two and a half weeks and hoping to produce a nice big family in the near future. We would like to have at least nineteen children if possible, if not more. Perhaps nineteen and three quater children would be good. We are hoping to have ten sons and ten daughters so we can start a school and train each and every child of ours' to become a brahmagiyani. This world is full of miserable and unhappy people hopefully our children will bring some happiness into their lives by transforming them with the help of brahmagiyan.

Bull chuk maf.


Veera, you are great. You doing a great job man.

    • anyone watch these 2 documentaries that were made? if so whats your thoughts?
    • Lessons to be learn't let me see hmmm 1) Our brothers should prepare for the worst case scenario so they should arm themselves with heavy weapons to protest the Sikh faith, fellow sikhs and innocent civilians from harm. 2) Infiltrate the enemy before they infiltrate you. We only now realise the amount of infiltration that went on to derail the punjabi sabha movement all the way to the present khalistan movement. 3) The Sikh misls and Sikh raj of the past happened because India was not a miltiary and politically united country it was various different hindu and muslim kingdoms/ empires who plotted and schemed against each other causing power vaccums for Sikhs to gain strength and take over. In 1980s the Indian army, police and paramilitaries were huge in number over 1 million men. In 1980s to 90s Sikhs with at max about 5,000 armed fighters throughout india? impossible odds to win against. Sikhs only 2% of population.... lesson here is increase population by conversion drives and birth rate. Also Sikh pride and Sikh nationalism should come first and override any sense of indian nationalism, pakistani nationalism, american, canada, british nationalism. 4) Always have a well connected world power as a major ally. At the moment the best hope is China as usa is sucking up to india to encircle china. And pakistan will never help the Sikhs because its an islamo-facsist regime that wants indians Sikhs to be killed by their fellow Indians for their own political mileage. So only China if courted correctly can be mutually beneficial to help Sikhs gain freedom from India when the time comes again probably if India tries to do a war with china.  
    •   Who is richer than Bill Gates? Someone asked Bill Gates, "Is there any person richer than you?" He said, "Yes, only one.
      Many years ago, I had been dismissed & had gone to New York airport.I read titles of newspapers there.I liked one of them and I want to buy it. But didn't  have change (coin). I abandoned." Suddenly, a black boy called me and said “This newspaper for you.” I said, "..but I don’t have change." He said,“No problem, i give you free”. After 3 months, i went there. Coincidentally, that story happened again and that same boy gave another free newspaper again. I said, "I can’t accept. But he said, 'i give you from my profit' After 19 years, I had been rich and I decided to find that boy. I found him after one and half months searching.
      I asked him, do you know me? He said, “Yes, you’re famous Bill Gates.” I said, twice you gave me free newspaper many years ago.
      Now, i want to compensate it. I am going to give you everything that you want. Black young man replied, “You can’t compensate it!”
      I said, why? He said, "Because i gave you when I was poor. You want to give me when you are rich. So, how do you compensate?" Bill Gates said, I think that black young man is richer than me. You don't have to be rich or wait to be rich to give.
    • I absolutely agree. But like I said, Panjab does generate plenty of money, and the SGPC, which is essentially a de facto government, has enough money (through the donations of Sikhs) to use this to modernise the region. We all know the centre doesn't like us, to expect them to actually help is bordering on insanity. 
    • 1. I am speaking from bringing up four children including a set of twins not theory but experience and observation of how different people approaches affected their kids in close genetic relationships . 2. i had my infant children either in a cot or moses basket in the same room as me for the first six months , except the twins who slept in the same cot - next door because our new home didn't have the space for a large cot alongside our bed . eldest - was looked after by my folks during the workday and I would pick him up and we used to do loads of stuff together, gardening, reading , drawing , etc he was extremely talkative from 1.5 years because he was surrounded by adults and none of us spoke tuthla to him, had three languages on the go in the homes ,  when I had the twins - we were forced by circumstances to move away so I was all alone with three under three and two preemies . Loving Contact, speaking and engaging babies is important but as the ICU/SCBU nurses pointed out sleep is vital for growth and it was illustrated by slow gain of weight in Dayal Singh compared to Bahadur SIngh.. from observations people who babytalk delayed speech development and enforced simple mouthing mistake which then needed intervention, and allowed their kids to stay in the parental beds beyond two years of age had massive problems with seperation anxiety in the kids no matter who they were with in the day , bedtime creep, concentration problems in kids and sleep deprivation in the parents, one couple's singleton drove the mother out of the bed totally to the sofa so she could get enough sleep to function for coming workday. One child who is now in high school will not sleep in his own bedroom despite insisting on own room for me I'm realistic that my kids longest relationship is with their siblings so I've always encouraged shared space/play  with each kid getting time with each of us parents and collective time with the grands as a secondary emphasis. I am highly aware of anti-sikh attitudes in certain family members so try to reduce influence by countering by teaching sikhi aspects to same issues
