Someone who wears a dastar once told me ... he does not want his son to have a handicap of dastar which will limit his swimming abilities.

So ridiculous !

Its unbelievable that some of us can be so stupid ! 

You should have asked him what stopped him from removing / cutting off that handicap for himself ?

Its not like a circumcision is  it ?? Its not a one way thing ! His parents chose dastaar for him , now he can cut his hair and say bye to it ? whats the deal ?!! why pretend to be victim of your own faith , when we have such a beautiful faith ?

I think most sikhs are spoiled by freebies our guru always gave us (langar and feasts among others) come to my mind . Such people deserved to be hindus or muslims who would stand long queues in line in temple/dargah only to return empty handed/stomached

I think women view keeping body hair as a great limitation that will isolate them socially.  I think that at least partially explains the amritdhari gender gap.  But that is only one factor.


Don't sikh men feel isolated socially ? How many men around you are wrapping a 5 meter cloth on their head and never cutting their hair/beard ? You know well ! 

Don't we all have those bad days in offices when its not just the work pressure but also because our turban isn't tied well and it hurts like hell !? 

then what excuse do kaurs have ? bullocks !

In general, I think young Sikh women are less inclined to feel a connection with their Sikh heritage than young Sikh men are (even in cases where that connection does not necessarily involve being amritdhari).

For this, I blame their conflation of Sikhi with conservative Punjabi culture

 


So now all those bhangre and gidde burraaaaahhhhhs are paying back , no ?

We used to be known as a community of raga kirtans and "ucha sucha jeevan" but now people raise eyebrows if you tell them you're a "singh" and you don't drink or eat meat. 

Revelation of sikhi to punjabis was kinda mistake I guess lol

uncle ji no one expects you to be in sant mode all time . We can create a separate thread/section for light humor lol.

And besides , lets stop using "sant" so generically haha

"Sant" is ultimate spiritual station ! It is being one with god !

Bumping this: Is it really that hard for Amritdharis to find Rishtas that some people propose Chacking Amrit after marriage; I'd assume it would be easier for an Amritdhari Kaurs to find Rishtas than an Amritdhari Singhs, because the gender ratio should benefit them; (if the Amritdhari Singhs are ONLY willing to have an Anand Karaj with someone who's Chacked Amrit before them meeting; rather than open to the "Willing to Take Amrit" crowd)?

    • Do you have sources for this?
    • In urdu we also use 'Mauze' so i doubt if it is hindi word.It sounds like a persian one.Indians have problem prouncing words which end with sound 'z'.Just like Mumtaz Mehal became Mumtaj Mehal and now just Taj Mehal.
    • i have no issue using persian,hindi,english words in my day to day conversations in punjab.I just though a good opportunity to learn "shuddh" punjabi. 
    • Sikhism needs neither a reformation nor a philosophy of free will. Reformations are for religions that are at a primitive tribal level in the first place. Sikhi starts off with Guru Nanak Ji feeding people langar, and preaching meditation of Satnam. If you start off with capturing war booty and sex slaves killing all the males, yeah, you need a reformation. Philosophy is (mostly) for people trying desperately to understand the universe without real divine knowledge. These types of efforts are called ਸਿਆਣਪਾਂ in Gurbani. (You did you Japji this morning, right?) All of these sianapan don't amount to a hill of beans. We don't have the burning need for philosophy that Westerners do because we can obtain complete knowledge via simran. ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਸੁਝੈ ॥
    • it's my fault, i should have phrased things a bit better. Basically based on the data he gathered same sex couples are more likely to settle into a routine and are less likely to do things out of said routine (such as cheating, which according to the data he gathered was surprisingly low compared to straight couples). By similar attributes I mean people like them in terms of personality and taste. In straight couples you can usually note a sort of polarity in the way they behave and their personalities.  Again this is based on one study, nothing official or on a large scale really.
