The main problem with regular wheat crops is that farmers use roundup just before harvesting to ease collection , round up has the horrible effect of spoiling our ability to absorb any minerals from our food thus what people think is coeliac disease is actually the sideeffects of roundup.

What, really? Do you have any links or are you just surmising?

Is mixed flour containing millet, chickpea, corn etc. safe? Less fibre and just as much protein (more complete too) but doesn't seem same as the atta us Panjabis regularly use.

This would be a very good idea but you need to be careful to ensure you get grains which have not been genetically manipulated. I know that bajra, sorghum, corn have been researched to create hybridised and genetically modified varieties for example by DuPont. If you can be sure you are getting the real natural variety then go for it, if not then I would avoid.

It's ridiculous how much our staple foods have been tampered with. I'm struggling to find anything which has been left untouched. It's not even enough to just buy 'organic', as I have seen genetically manipulated grains sold under organic certification even in the UK.

Don't trust any product myself - better to rely on yourself by growing your own food and keeping it simple as much as possible as Guru ji instructs rather than chasing what the whiteys want.

Do you know finger millet? Red in colour (lots of iron) and the glaze after cooking seems different. Common in Rajasthan.

Yes finger millet is very good. You are lucky in India as you can grow your own ancient/heirloom/natural varieties of grains and avoid the genetically modified & hybrid ones. 

Also, the best, most nutritious rice to eat is rakthashali rice which you can get in India. I cannot find it in the UK.

    • Monatosingh replied. The rope is strategic in many ways. Out in the wild and need to make weapons, you may need rope. Need to make a little makeshift roof, you need rope. Need to tie anything together for the purpose of surviving, you will always need rope.   Dori also saves the issue of gatra breaking, etc
    • Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Parkash is disputed between 3 Dates Friday, Katak Sudi 15 Pooranmashi, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) Saturday, Vaisakh Sudi 3, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) (Not Pooranmashi) Monday, 1 Vaisakh, 1526 Bikrami (Solar Date) (Pooranmashi) There is debate on this issue, I recommend reading the document mentioned in the OP. Also PLS, Benti for everyone, when referring to Gurpuabs, pls use Bikrami or Mool Nanakshahi (Which are basically Bikrami dates) dates, don't use English dates as they are not accurate as the original. We need more people to start using Desi Months and days, Barah Maha Parro!
    • Serious question though, how would one use a Dori Kirpan practically? Like how would it be used? I think thats why some people say its just for show because maybe you can't use it well? I wouldn't know.
    • Sometimes we use the phrase "Just do it" in the Dojo. Other times we say "Shut up and train".  Heh. 
    • Exactly. Oh, so it's not a made-up saakhi? Even if it were, it would be good. It sounds vaguely like the saakhi of Bhai Banno. I agree that it is unreasonable to demand discounts of shopkeepers because "it's for a religious purpose". They can't verify that. You're trading on your long beard to make the other guy think you're "religious". You're just setting it up for unscrupulous people with beards to come by and abuse it, which then gets found out, and then people lose faith in Sikhs and Sikhi. On the other hand, it would be OK for a gurdwara to put out the call for construction materials, legal services, accounting services, medical services (free medical camps). Then people can verify it's for a religious purpose because they're giving directly to the gurdwara. And then sawmill owners can drop off wood at the gurdwara, marble showroom owners can drop off marble, etc. Or people in fields not in demand can buy the stuff (possibly at cost) and have it delivered to the gurdwara.
