    well because the word "GURU" is today universally accepted in all lnaguages as "EXPERT"... so we have "cyber GURU"..Economics GURU....Political GURU..and what not...so this guy wnats to show that he is GURU of POKER...

    BUT the mistake he made is choosing a photo of GURU NANAK JI...he probably did agoogle search for "GURU" images and came up with the one he chose....flattery of the wrong kind..UNFORTUNATE.

    Write to him at this address:
    Site Webmaster (exoticdesignpublic@yahoo.com)
    +1.4128186965
    Fax: +1.-
    2400 Oxford Dr
    PMB 301
    Bethel Park, 15102
    US
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    Be POLITE and tell him why we find his choice of photo distasteful..and he may remove it. Dont be nasty, revengeful and all that..he may decide NOT to remove it and all we will do is make his site NO. 1..and he will be laughing all the way to the bank !!!

    I checked out this website and theres no way to contact these ppl, so we cant even tell them that they have to change there picture. :}--}:

    Plus I typed the word "Guru" into google images and that same picture of Guru Nanak Dev ji is on the first page!!!

    Its partly our own fault too..Gurmatt and Sikhi has nothing to do woth such "imaginary" paintings of our Gurus...MOST of the GURU paintings are put up on Google by SIKHS..or from Sikh websites.

    Our Religion is GYAAN..Knowledge..SHABAD of the Formless...but we insist on painting imaginary Gurus...and now people have begun to MISUSE them....

    To me Personally I dont feel anything on seeing such nonsense because I know THAT is NOT GURU NANAK JI..Guru ji is the GURBANI JYOT... but still i sent that webmaster a email to advise him to drop the offensive picture.

    Yes veer ji,

    I think the site has been taken down..it returns a blank page. Lets wait a few days and see if they return without the pictures.

    Regards

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!
