    Sometimes a nation is a state of mind.

    Antonia ji,

    Guru Fateh.

    Well said.

    a nation is defined as:

    The English word "nation" is derived from the Latin term natio (nātĭō, stem nātiōn-), meaning:[6][7]
    • The action of being born; birth; or
    • The goddess personifying birth; or
    • A breed, stock, kind, species, race; or
    • A tribe, or (rhetorically, any) set of people (contemptuous); or
    • A nation or people.
    A nation is a body of people who share a common history, culture, language or ethnic origin, who typically inhabit a particular country or territory - New
    Oxford Dictionary.


    My definition of Nation is the supreme allegience(physical).

    Is mine my Religion or my country? - take your pick !

    Isnt that a stanza from Chandi Chraittar? The part of "Dasam Granth" that praises Durga. Durga is often referred to as Shiva.
    The author is clearly asking Goddess Durga for a boon. The type of boon is clearly related to what the author praises Durga/Shiva for.
    So I fail to see why this would be our national anthem.

    Also,

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
