lol. No, again its a case of people in India not understanding the English language as well as they think (no matter how highly educated they are). For example, see how they refer to the genocide and massacre of 1984 as a 'riot'.

So, they use the word 'Burger' freely throughout India and Punjab without understanding the fact that the word itself is defined as a slab of meat in between 2 breads. They just need educating that they need to add the word 'Vege' in front of it if they wish to refer to something vegetarian.

the riot thing is lack of backbone , call it a state sponsored (wasn't just congressi ) genocide ....

but doh , I feel silly but really is this what it's come down to appealing to swad ras to get Gurbani in ?? seems very low level to pitch at ... :blush2:

These days even India has the big corporations there with their halal burgers etc. I mean MaccieDs, Burger King is big business out there now so those who say 'burger' will automatically be understood to be veggie one in India , hmm not convinced .

Plus it you notice in the picture Mr Singh alludes to MacCDonalds through use of the arches logo ...

anyway how many burgers did they give away ?

If they're vegetarian burgers - which I have no reason to believe they are not, it's a good initiative. I don't know why people do kintu parantoo on every little thing it gets very exhausting.

Good for them.

Kaurss verr/bharn, ehna hate nahi rakhi di. Kehan nu assi keh sakday that indian sikhs are not sikhs as they not even able to change a single line from govt docs which says that sikhs are hindus and so much can be said here and there.

Dosri gall, evaain raula paya ethay sariyaan neh. Kaurss is right though..

In india, burger = bun tikki. Not sure if u grew up in punjab but majority of burger stands (rehri walay) are vegetarians.

Mr.singh burger is jatha wala amritdhari singh- spending a min on his fb timline will gives you the idea.

Please people. Please understand why among south Asians we Sikhs have a stereotype of being uneducated. Its because we have a reputation of being afraid of knowledge and intellect. The whole world and his dog knows that in Punjab they mean vegetarian when they say the word 'Burger'. That much is obvious and if you bothered to actually read this thread before posting you'll see that was established from the very 3rd message. You're making yourself look extremely silly by revising that same old fact again and again and, like simpletons, ignoring the hard fact of what the word 'Burger' (on its own) means. Every word in the English language has a meaning. You can't just willy nilly alter the meaning of a word and then be proud of this nonsensical stupidity. Well you can if you wish, and you 'Indians' opbviously do, but to then bury your head in the sand and pretend you don't hear what the word is actually defined as is not very clever.

The word 'Burger' on its own refers to MEAT.....by very definition. If one wants to refer to something vegetarian than that someone needs to add the word 'veggie' in front of the word 'burger'. Its common sense.

Mr Singh from that Burger stall, and you lot, could decide that you all want to call vegetarian things 'Chicken and Lamb'. And then when someone points it out to you you'll use the same arrgument you're using here and say "well when we say chicken and lamb everyone in Punjab knows we mean vegetrian food.....So we're gonna carry on saying it".

Now while that statement might be true its also incredibly stupid.

    • There are many issues Sikh men need to be aware of when entering a life-long commitment whether it's with a woman from India, or a young lady from any respective western country in question. Unfortunately, it's somewhat of an uncomfortable truth that Punjabi fathers are themselves ill-equipped to advise their sons on the various ways of successfully traversing married life. Maybe this will change as people of my generation become fathers to their own children of marriageable age in the next 20 or so years, but I think that era will offer its own set of unique challenges. Generally, it's practically a sink or swim mentality amongst our people, and that leads to many serious issues that could easily be avoided if we just talked or even just frankly identified a few of the important issues to consider when selecting a partner AND the various issues that can arise between a couple after marriage, as well as identifying the problems that are unique to our culture regarding extended family norms, etc. Most of this soul-searching and analysis must begin before the marriage, before selecting a partner. There's TOO much to comprehensively identify and discuss here, but as an overview I will say that if you're going the traditional way of finding a partner through an introduction via a third party, just do yourself a favour and quickly eliminate from your mind any thoughts of romance and any other subjective ideas that will impair your judgement. If the institution of marriage is a serious concern to you, and one you plan to undertake just the once, then for God's sake use your brain, and don't take your cues from entertainment and other nonsensical soft-cultural influences. Be as dispassionate and as cool-headed as possible. Think about the sort of progeny that will result from your union with a lady, because ultimately you should be viewing a marriage as a method of securing the future of your lineage. This kind of approach to marriage isn't only for royalty and the elite families of the world. Sometimes, unavoidable bad stuff happens that you can't account for, but if you're attributing everything to fate and luck, you're going to be in for a shock. If this seems like I'm talking about breeding horses instead of humans and fostering relationships, then I apologise, but marriage and its related financial and social issues - that can destroy lives when it all falls apart - is a serious business. Look at not only the girl in question and her respective physical and personality traits, but analyse her family, too. Is there an errant sibling in the family? Maybe there's more than two? Could the potential person of interest be shielding their true nature for the purposes of securing an engagement? Look at the parents: are they loud and boisterous beyond the usual jolly Punjabi demeanour? Is their brash nature an endearing quality or does it suggest an unfortunate lack of manners and common sense? Could this be an indication of more concerning traits and values they've passed on to your potential marriage partner? Would you be upset if similar ingrained traits were passed onto your children? There's SO much to sift through if you aren't in the habit of leaving things to chance.  If you're going in with a head full of dreams and half-baked fantasies of everlasting love and romance, you're going to be disappointed. Marriage, even on a good day, is hard work. Give yourself a fighting chance by opening your eyes and your mind before entering such situations.
    • You think Trudeau family didn't spend thousands upon thousands on their designer top end Bollywood outfits? 
    • Big Tera  You need to be more firm and assertive when dealing in these matters.  Hope you have learnt some lessons here.  These type of life changing decisions cannot be taken lightly.  Still, it could have been worse.  I heard of a situation some years ago where the groom was waiting for his bride in the anand karaj and the bride bottled it. Her sister stepped in and married him instead.  Still,  if you are thinking of going to India for marriage,  there are still plenty of fish (metaphorically speaking).  Being a foreigner/westerner  going to India for marriage is a buyer's market  (sorry for this term). The reality is that you can turn one girl down and there are 20 to take her place.  Keep this in mind if you are going back there for marriage.  You dictate the terms to the vachola and don't back down. That is the langauge they understand. 
    • @Big_Tera Dude, when someone recommends a type of car you take their advice, when someone recommends a life partner you don't go and marry them without even meeting them at least once, personally, i i were you i would have spoken to may parents as soon as i had doubts, i wouldn't be posting for advice on the internet. As far as the repercussions, you can forget about going to India for a while because they don't forget stuff like this in a hurry, you know, izzat and all, anyway, like i said, speak to your parents, you never know, they might listen and understand.
