In recent Punjabi history, (like very recent), Punjab has a current issue with both the crops as well as water in Punjab being diverted into other states in India, in recent Sikh history the powers of the SGPC have become so corrupted that in the Akal Takht, rather than supporting the actual Jathedar, (Jagtar Singh Hawara), the Akali Dal have pressured Gursikhs into putting a fake Jathedar in, (this was also a case during the Manochahal Singh vs Darshan Ragi). I hope that gives a good start and good luck on your book.

Corruption seems to be our Kaum's speciality nowadays, from corrupt Gurdwara comittees, to fake 'Singhs', fake 'prachariks', fake babeh and our so called political leaders from different parties ready to sell out on the Kaum for anything. For your story look at the corruption which led to us losing the Shere Punjab empire under Maharaja Ranjt Singh with the role of the Dogras, or us losing a large part of Punjab during 1947 with the role of Master Tara Sio or look into the Khalistan movement and you will find plenty of those who sold out on the Kaum.

Read about the life and role of one of the greatest Sikh leaders Master Tara Singh before writing nonsense about him.

If you knew your history you would have seen that because of Master Tara Singh we saved some of Panjab. No-one in the world could have kept Panjab muslim majority areas from going to Pakistan.

 

Do some research bro.

I agree that we could not have kept all of Punjab for ourselves, but Tara Sio wasn't a saint. From what I know and have been told from elders in Punjab, is that he was a hindu who was working for the interests of the hindus and british. Either way bro, the sad state our Kaum is in is due to the corruption of our so called leaders, while those who were real such as Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale, Manochahal etc were defamed and killed.

Mind your language and how you refer to Sikh leaders. People like you are only good at writing nonsense.

oh boy now it must be very hard to find examples. Of the top of my head, google 'Badal net worth' to see how that bunch who ran punjab till lately miraculously became a lot more wealthy. Prime examples of dodgyness include how the contracts for the Chandigarh airport were allocated. 

Then just follow the trail for the people smuggling from the punjab to the west (and east). That stuff only happens with plenty of brown paper envelopes. 

Then for the most twisted corruption look at how the 'drugs' end up in Punjab. By some miracle the drugs flow across one of the most contested and secure borders in the world (india / pak). How could could such a situation happen without 'greased palms'? where does all that money come from and go to?

      During my visits to the Harimandir Sahib in late 1990s when I was studying at Guru Nanak Dev University in Amritsar, I often came across a very familiar scene – Inside the sanctum sanctorum, sitting opposite to the ‘kirtaniyes’, a man in his 30s, in a sense of extreme gush, mesmerized and actuated by the euphoria of the keertan, physically detached from the World around him, his eyes closed with tears flowing down his cheeks and drenching his black flowing beard.

      Something conspicuously different from what others were doing- hurling their way towards the sanctum sanctorum, making their own space to bow down and offer their respects, very cautious of the positioning of the cameras, telecasting live images around the world. 

      Wow! I used to say every time I saw him. I thought, this is what one needs in order to attain a humane connection with that place and the environment. But I also realized that this was something inveterate, which would only come with time, filled with love for the Guru and Gurbani…

      hau reh na ska bin dekhe preetma mai neer vahe vahe chale jeeo. 
      I cannot survive without seeing my Beloved. My eyes are welling up with tears. 
      (M4; Pg 94; SGGS)

      But I was also a bit puzzled. Why this melancholy? It is said, ‘’how but through a broken heart can Lord enter’’. Was it the environment, the shabad or something else? It was all-in-one I guess. Sitting with crossed legs, closed eyes, listening to the ‘dhur ki baani’ written by our Gurus – this reaction is inevitable if we really concentrate on the shabad, its meaning and environment.

      Also, is melancholy a reflection of the Sikhs’ perception of ‘man neevan’ which they utter daily in their prayer, ‘man neevan; mat uchee’? (humble mind and exalted wisdom). It’s such a unique combination of the ‘man’ (mind) being humble but at the same time the spirits being high.     
    • You're not alone in wondering why people do this. As far as my observations, people who name thier daughters maya don't have a clue what maya is or the concept of maya. These people tend to be Sikh in name only. They do it purely to be modern while keeping an 'indian flavour' to thier childs name.

      VJKK VJKF This question has been eating at me for quite a long time now. I thought that maya what something that distracts us from Vaheguru so why do people call their daughters maya? Do you think it comes from Bollywood? Just a thought. VJKK VJKF
