Sikh Girls

A common thing which genuinely arises when its summer is how can Amritdhari girls who have their head covered and do not remove hair look pretty?

I know a lot of the sangat is going to say we don't need to look pretty etc but being a girl - it is important to look good.

I have many Sikh friends and I've noticed a lot of them feel the same way ...

I remember reading somewhere that when looking pretty hair generally play a big role but many amritdhari girls cover their head (maybe dastar or patka)

we don't shape our eyebrows or wear makeup

Don't misunderstand me and think I am complaining, this is all good stuff that we do

but the question is, what can we do to kind of replace those things and make ourselves feel that we are also looking pretty too.

 

I don't know how much of this is making sense, I thought it was just me but talking to friends ive noticed it is something that goes on in many amritdhari girls minds.

look at it this way , what kind of girls have zero/minimal hair on their armpits , legs and bikini area ...pre-pubescent girls i.e. underage girls ...do you want to look like that and what kind of males will you attract ? Those who find that look/feel appealing i.e. suspect 

Why not do what many of our brothers do and tie more beautiful dastars , elaborate in line , multicolours, make it about your crown not your face . Clothing can be lighterweight but well-cut, simple yet memorable , revive pride in punjabi rav pyjama you don't have to have your legs out to be fashionable these days .

you can be well groomed despite the lack of makeup , comb your eyebrows, smooth them with fingertips you don't need to pluck to look sleek, moisturize your skin, eat loads of fresh fruit to get beautiful skin and drink loads of water so you eliminate breakouts , it's not that hard. Your lips and cheeks will have their own internal rosiness skip the blush. exercise daily and your yes will sparkle and you'll an air of confidence from knowing you are Guru Pita ji's beloved daughter.

Beauty is not defined by what you do, but how you do it. An example is some people put on excess of make-up and they end-up looking like clowns from circus, even when their goal was to be atttactive. Another example in reverse is a Kaur, (daughter of her father Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji), wears a dastar, she has no intention of making herself beautiful to worldly standards, but is beautiful anyway.

    • And who decides, the parameters of what educated, independent thinking is.. We seem to have a big problem with accepting free thinking on this forum never mind on a structural state level  Are we suggesting theocratic rule like Saudi Arabian, Iran model? 
    • But therein lies the rub.. The desire to create a homogeneous 'panthic community' means becoming like any other panth..  Surely as the activity of khalsa aid demonstrate that if we go back to sikhi roots and be selfless then the philosophy of bani stops being a abstract concept and something tangible..  If we don't aspire as individuals to truly accept 1 onkaar and don't challenge ourselves to destroy our desire to create a example of pure love no ifs no buts then surely we have already compromised? 
    • Prashaad is blessed and should not be wasted. If, whilst serving, it drops on the floor, it should be picked up and eaten. It should not be wasted.    You know for next time to maybe double wrap the prashad, or give it to the sangat and let them put it in the bag themselves. 
    • I don't think so. It is good we are focusing on 'panthic' issues, because Sarbat Da Bhalla will automatically follow from the strength and unity of the Sikh Qaum.  A powerful, cohesive Sikh Panth is the best thing for the future of the world in my opinion. Once we are in a position to carry Guru Granth Sahib Ji's Jot to all four corners of the Earth, once our religion becomes as well known as Christianity or Islam, I do believe the oppressed peoples of the world - women, the poor, lower orders/castes, victimized minority groups - will flock to it because they will see it is clearly superior to Islam/Hinduism/western neoliberalism, the ideologies which keep them in chains.  Sikhi is the only major world religion which was founded on the premise of overturning tyranny and social injustice, which is why I think Sikhi speaks to the soul of the Modern Age better than crusty relics like Christianity, Islam and especially Bahmanism ever could or ever will again.  Sarbat Da Bhalla will come easily once we complete the monumental task of getting our internal affairs in order.
