There is a website by a sikh who claims guruji traveled to Rome and china. He says that guruji preached to Greek fishermen. Since the ottomon or pesian empire ruled most of the middle east, he says guruji was able to converse with all using persian. He lists the shabd yak araj guftam pesh as the persian one. I forget the website but u guys should take a look.
He even had proof of guruji visiting Rome to warn the pope against slavery. But i dont remember wat language he says guru ji spoke.
Not true. Even in some families now. The tradition of baata (riddles) and night time stories from the elders exist. Most kids used to look forward to that time of sharing stories and riddles. There were also the songs, i forget wat their called, that were sung at all occasions. Where old ladies sing at weddings wjthout instruments. And women had a tradition of meeting up to weave, and spin and of singing/talking whike doing charka etc. Not to mention maraasis who were like the local comedians, singers etc.
Also my nani tells me. People esp.women never used to curse using bad words but used to be very creative. Like may u get a.noh and then she will show u ur place. May ur house be filled with workers, ( implying so u have no time to waste but have to make 50 rotis a day)
