ummm i do not know.......

when i was a kid living in Amritsar...and went to a Khalsa school....and we had a Gurdwara within the school...and i think (i am not sure) that small kids used to have nickers as a part of uniform and they went to Gurdwara Sahib before going to school....

but you think you are doing anything bad going to GD with shorts...then wear something else.....but with long shorts i think nothing is bad though....everything i coved up...(?)

Well, you gotta ask yourself. Do you consider man and woman to be equal? If so, then if you can wear shorts to the Gurdwara should women also be allowed to wear shorts or not? rolleyes.gif

Sure, people say "What are you talking about?" "That's insane!". But if our Gurus gave both men and women equal status in society and in practising religion, then why not?

Here's the thing, people say "Oh, if women wear shorts to the Gurdwara, then it creates kaam for men". Well, don't you think its the same for women? :T: If you wear shorts, they will also be distracted to look at you, and if you got a fit body, they would get kaam as well.

So it all depends on the individual, let me kno what you guys think? Bhul chuk maaf karnee!!

Daas,

Daljeet Singh

Thanks peeps.. ^_^

I think daljeet does got tha excellent point.. For example.. personally me.. i can say aye for singhs to wear short while visiting gurdwara, but i would really discourage for women gender to do same, cauz i know guys are lot more pervet than women (maybe).. but in case of guys wearing shorts, i don't think women feel the same way as guy do.. maybe it has to do with punjabi culture and stuff.. rolleyes.gif

I think Daljeet singh made a very valid point. When Women talk about wearing skirts or Shorts in the Gurdwara then we give them a lecture that it will distract the male members of the sangat.

So doesn't the opposite happen when a guy wears shorts. :D

Interesting views. and boyy i soooo agree that if men can wear shorts women should be allowed to do so cuz of the equality thing. tongue.gif But *sigh* there's alwaiz the double standard where guys wearing whatever they please is accepted but if a girl so much as wears shirt and long pants she gets stared at or remarks are passed about her . Whatever the case, I believe we should dress appropriately according to the occasion....im sure gurujee duznt wanna see us waltzing into darbaar with our bare legs. And as far as the kaam thing is concerned...i guess if u look upon all guyz/gals as bros/sis the kaam thing shouldn't get to you. :T:

I do agree that there should be equal rite for Sikh man and woman.

We visit gurudwara sahib or sangat to listen the teachings of GURUJEE and to get inspiration & kirpa to follow those. As we know the Five evils in us are very powerful and always on their job so we need continous blessings of gurujee and sangat plus our will power to control them and be firm on gurujee's techings but its not that easy job friends. These five takes our contiuous Test/ Exam in day to day activities n chores.

Gurdwara Sahib is like a School and Sadh Sangat is like a class room. In a class room there are certain rules which every student has to obey including not doing such activity which can break the concentration of fellow students etc. Similary one should not wear any such stuff or do such kind of activity which can disturb concentration of other sangat member and any of five evils get the chance to do his job. E.g. if a gurl wearing jewellery in her foot creating sound comes into sangat will surely disturb cocentration of sangat similary if ones wears skimppy clothes or likewise can cause loss of concentration for some sangat which is not a wise and right thing to do .

So in my opinion all of us should wear appropriate dress even when we are not in the gurudwara sahib jee.

bhul chuk maaf

a bitter truth.. guys are more pervet than girls.. so thats why i think in our culture we got all against the idea of girls wearing shorts etc... (ex trying to be protective).. But in other way around.. guys wearing shorts is normally and no problem to anyone.. rite?
