I agree 100%. I am quite surprised and even shocked that we don't see the value and importance how gurbani is sung. I don't think any Sikh would be questioning the value of this if they were taught classical music. I am failing to understand why we don't want to listen to gurbani in raags its written. What is going on with Sikhs?? Why are we doing this? Do we not have any love for Sikhi anymore?? Do we not like what Guru's have given to us? I feel sad.... what are we doing? What do we want going forward?
