India Farm Bill

There has been a lot of news about the new farm bill enacted by the Indian Government. There has been a lot of opinions from all directions about it. I have tried to access the actual bill in the usual way but all appear to be second sources. It doesn't explain the passion of feelings. Does anyone k...

Re: Sikhs & Turbans

The moderator is correct. This has been discussed a lot. I didn't mean to bore anyone with well discussed topic. I shouldn't let untruths upset me too much. However, I cannot help feeling that even if after a lot of discussion people are not clear then the message is either wrong or it's not getting...

Sikhs & Turbans

There seems to be a view going around in the non-sikhs that turbans are not a requirement because it is not mentioned specifically in the Rehat Mariada. I heard this on you tube today, from an educated Indian, who said that French justified their Turban ban due to this and also some of the Sikhs hav...

Re: URGENT HELP needed

As others have stated your wife needs professional help. She doesn't take medication. This is where you can help her. Remind her, cajole her, ask her to take it as favour, turn it into a ritual that you and wife follow together. Maybe kids can help but try not to involve them too much. you don't wan...

Re: Kava/Grog at Gurudwaras

Kava/Grog is an alcoholic drink. Shouldn't be anywhere near Gurdwara, never mind actually inside. I am surprised/shocked that a member of congregation is having difficulty in banning it. What is the name and place of this den?

Re: Waheguru

I always took " father and mother" said together to mean parent i.e. Both. Therefore no gender. I thought concept of soul bride is evoked only in anand Karaj.

Re: Adoption

First you have to sit down and think why you want a child. If you adopt, consider do you really want it? Will you be able to look at like your own biological child? Any doubts then it will affect the way you bring it up, how the child relates to you. Is it fair on the child if you have any doubts? I...

Re: Why we are called Sikhs?

Jarnail Singh Khalsa Ji, I haven't read SGGS much, if any. My whole belief system is based on a simple idea. Guru Ji when compiling SGGS wouldn't have allowed writings to contradict any earlier compilations. As you will notice in the holy books of other religions. If you take this idea to its logica...

Re: Why we are called Sikhs?

A person called Nanak is the first one with a message. The accepted date and place for this day is in the literature if important and must have. personally, I don't bother because I find the message more interesting.
