Similarities between mahabharat story and hindu-sikh relations

2 posts in this topic

Mahabharat , 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

    • Thank you everybody, but I still feel sad, not because I didn't get what I wanted but I feel sad with mahraj ji. what I wanted was to pass a test that ive been trying so hard for, I have done path too especially dedicated to this and ardas and on the day I even took a cyber hukamnama and it was really positive cant remember it exactly, it was something like waheguru ji gives you what you wish for (I just read the translations).... and today I was awake at amrit vela but I didn't get up to do my nitnem I stayed in bed and did simran, I just wanted to show mahraj ji that I am upset with him a little bit, just as I would do to show my mum ...... I don't know if gods feeling anything  or just doesn't care lol
    • there is a lot of iron in dal and beans especially BLACK BEANS   if you want to learn indian cooking  watch Sanjay on VAHREHVAH.COM   ...food always turns out great and he is a bit enthuastic . Recommend watching the following channels to get more info : mic.the Vegan (gives the science papers) John McDougall (Doctor - starch solution) Vegsource (all the plant based docs and info) Vegan style cooking (aussie lady showing various dishes )   Interesting for health topics : Diverse Health Services Dr John Bergman   
    • It doesn't matter where I come from just presenting Desi parents sentiment. If you're parents are conservative & traditional then it's best to follow definition of RIGHT. And who says there is no romance in Arranged Marriage now you want couples to talk about their intimate relation in public  Unless you get married there can be no "Ek jot duwe murti" so get married n discover it yourself !
    • Don't forget that Hindus make up over 40 percent of Punjab so the 1.6 will include their birth rate.  If Sikhs have 3.1, it means that Hindu Punjabi may be in demographic decline and that is making the replacement rates look lower for Sikhs. If there has been an increase in the population in Punjab, it would be non Punjabis coming into Punjab. Perhaps this is why the Indian Govt has been encouraging Bhaiyas and Biharis to move to Punjab over the last couple of decades. The Hindu Punjabi population has been in decline and the govt needs to keep the ratio up. These are just suggestions and are by no means accurate. What is interesting on that link you provided is that as a general rule most of India's birth rate is going down with the exception of the BIMRU states.
    • Grehasti means married life ? Are you saying get married & refrain from sex  or not marry n stay with parents ?
