make the system not reliant on a consumerist model , which i think vand ke shako is ... maybe if communities are made to be self-reliant then there would be more gainful employment for all and an alternative barter system service for goods could cover the needs of kirti poor people. I mean what did  Band Bahadur Singh ji do - he destroyed the jamindar system so people were released from their ancestral karza . We need to build social housing for the destitute this will help building and carpentry trades and generate local economy.

 

 

The backlash against globalisation which we are seeing could very well be what are you are alluding to.

The key to a few of the policies above this post require one fundamental requirement: Punjabis need to be convinced their future lies in the fertile lands of home and not halfway across the world. Expect some heavy duty resistance on that front, lol. "Why don't you return to Punjab and lead by example?" and other sentiments of a similar nature will be expressed to anyone that dares suggest such an idea, haha.

I'm afraid the hypnotic lure of the west has overwhelmed them. Can't really say I blame them considering how the likes of us ended up here.

The question would be then, what factors would be needed to convince Sikhs that Punjab is preferable to the west.

A Sikh Theocracy would be nice. But today's Punjab is comparable to something even less safe for an individual than some Afghanistan and Pakistan mixed together with all their bad qualities. The food has toxins, the water has toxins, the Sikhi is in decline, (compare that to Canadian Sikhs), Amrit Sanchars are bellow a reasonable percentage, stupid people voting Congress and Akali, and finally lost spirituality.

First one would need to get a firm grip on what drives and appeals to those people. There's no point in being abstract with them because they've been conditioned to respond to the immediate and the material. Compare that to indigenous westerners who can still, arguably, be won over with appeals to the heart and the soul; promises of a brighter day; a fairer society; opportunities for all, etc, all rather vague yet virtuous sentiments that appeal to the kind of people who consider themselves high-minded, even though they might not be but like to think they are. There's no such danger of anything like that back home, lol. Tell them what they'll get, and then deliver. In order to achieve that, politics there would need to be overhauled so that if promises are made to the Punjabi electorate, those would need to be fulfilled in order to convince people there's a future in Punjab, and that someone is listening to them. To do that would require us to extricate ourselves from the death grip of India who is determined to... what ARE they determined to do? They've cooled off on the overt killing of Sikhs, and they instead seem to be killing us softly through many subtle methods that makes it appear to the naked eye that we are the architects of our downfall. (I believe the Indians are taking their cues from the Russian playbook of ideological subversion; a long game that takes decades and generations to come to fruition.) Whilst i don't deny we are our own best enemies at times, the social landscape has been manipulated to such an extent that we've been pushed inbetween a rock and a hard place. I don't blame the people but they must wake up soon and realise what's at stake.

To balance things a little, It would be fair to add

Last Guru Nanak dev ji gurpurb , a few days before it actually, as I boarded a bus , a tilak dhaari hindu got up and offered me his seat and said "Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh". I reciprocated with same and he said "Happy Guru Nanak jayanti in advance".

For 1 neo-nazi hindu that hates , there's 4 others who love sikhs ! I say this from experience .

Also the current govt does claim to love sikhs very much. The current govt allotted 100 crore for celebration of 350 yrs birth anniversary of Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji , although I am skeptical if they truly love from heart. 

The current government desires to exterminate the autonomous Sikh Identity by nationalizing it. These anniversary celebrations were nothing more than a veiled opportunity to strike at the roots of Sikhi by alleging that Sikh Gurus were nationalists and not humanitarians. Shame to our so-called Sants and Jathedars who fell head-over-heels for this line and are still touting it.

Sant Kartar Singh Bhinderwale was considered some enemy of Indra for standing-up for his Guru during Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji's Shaheedi, Indra already had Keshdhari Hindus taking over Non-Damdami Taksal, yet she didn't know that Taksal was formed by Guru Sahib himself. (All the other Pakhandi Jathedars of man-made Jathas supported Indra that day, but not Sant Kartar Singh Bhinderwale).

    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji 1stly, I see a clear difference between amritdharis and hindus because our guru sahib jis have denied certain hindu practices (and if it ever felt like I have said there is no difference in the past then I am sorry for my mistake). 2ndly I agree with sikhs not wearing hindu threads. What I was saying in my post was that I have no objection with strangers in real life because who am I to advise a stranger since I don't know anything about them. Hindu threads are not gurmat.. practices that our guru sahib jis have not taken part of is not seen as part of sikhi to me. Sorry for the misunderstanding Singh ji.. There are a lot of things I've changed my mind on due to the cycle of learning. Another reason why I choose to not advise people to practice anything other than patth.  bhull chuk maaf kijye Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Bit of a leap your making my friend by implicitly saying all Hindus see shiva as a devta as 'god' Hindu philosophy has many congruent philosophical threads as sikhi. One of which is that there are many avatars or more accurately characteristics of Ongkaar. The term Vahiguroo is used in the Bhagat bani and to reduce it to a definable 'object'  is no different than idolatry ..  The dominant practices  of Hinduism as well as Islam is what was criticised and rejected.. Guru Nanak Dev Ji taught us to transcend narrow ideas, the foolishness in creating and trying to own the truth.. 
    • By saying the above she is trying to obscure the clear difference between Sikhs and Hindus.  If a person wants to worship the Gurus then worship the Gurus as they taught.  Instead these Hindus are worshipping in their manmat way.  Saying Vaheguru before an idol as a form of worship is no different for when Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji tells Hindus not to worship idols by saying a devi or devta name.  Vaheguru description and form of worship is given in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.  If Hindus want to worship by saying Vaheguru then follow Gurbani instructions.  Gurbani uses the name shiva to describe an attribute of Vaheguru.  But Hindus are worshipping Shiva the devta who came down went against Vaheguru Hukam and died.  By saying vaheguru before a shivling the Hindus are calling shiva thee Vaheguru.  They are being clever by taking gullible people to worship a shivling of Shiva.   Sikhs do not wear Hindu threads.  These threads have some sort of manmat behind them.  This poster does not clearly say she objects to Sikhs wearing these threads because she thinks according to Gurmat wearing a thread is right.  Now in this topic she is going on about how she does not tell others what to do.  She is a bold face liar because anyone can see her objections to Sikhs eating meat on a different topic.  Also she is trying to give merit to wearing threads by saying a lot of people do it.  Again another Hindu fable to get others to follow them to reincarnation.  Sikhs will always have a problem with the Hindu thread because it creates some to be more deserving of Gods worship because they were born in a certain family than another who was born to a so called lower family lineage.  Some threads are worn to keep away evil spirits which is also against the Sikhs teaching.
