Got this message in email. Most of the Sikhs have left Sikhe behind to succeed in life. Examples given below. I remember a close relative who was the highest ranking Sikh in 1980's and used to live right next door to Indira Gandhi used to conduct havans at his residence. I know this as I stayed at his official residence for one month as I had been selected for NTSE scholarship (a prestigious scholarship whereby 150 students are selected based on their aptitude). Now even SGPC jathedars conduct havans. So I would not be surprised that all these big sikhs conduct havans to succeed in India. Even KPS Gill the supercop is a chela of Brindaban Havani baba. Jat-Sikhs have been almost 95% successful in leaving Sikhe behind. Others like Ramgharias, Khatris and rest of Hindu caste system related "Kuteer" are fast following behind and not far behind. Most of the scholars are busy these days in finding ways of proving that keeping hair is not essential for Sikhs. Others are busy proving that wine is alright to drink. While followers of Sant Babas are spending 95% of their time praising the Sant Babas and what they have done or can do for them. No one is worried about the path shown by Gurus. How much strenght of miracles so and so Baba has. They also do not hesitate discussing children granting prowess of various BABAS especially a male child to childless couples little realising that Guru Nanak never granted the wish to his own sister Bebe Nanaki who died childless. While other talk of how so and so Baba went against law of nature and gravity and common sense and granted such and such thing and took them out of "SANKATT". Little realising all the while that Guru Gobind Singh sacrificed all his family and did not conduct a single miracle. Greatest threat to Sikhism as a religion is from emergence of rejuvenated Punjabi culture which has completely engulfed the religion. Message of Sikhism is universal and is above any language or region. So Akali Dal can fight for river waters, or Punjabi suba. But SGPC should be neutral in this regard. SGPC should be bothered about spreading Sikhe to Punjabis, and UP and Bihari Bhaiyas alike. Also SGPC should not allow Radhasoami worshippers, Havan conductors into SGPC. This is matter of principal and not racist as I have already advocated that probably Bihari Bhaiyas in near future might carry Sikhe forward as Punjabi especially Jat Sikhs have left it way behind. Another thing I find surprising is that SGPC advocates Sri Guru Granth Sahib is Guru of Sikhs. While on the other hand it keeps on telling bravery of Namdharis "Kukas". Namdharis have their 14th Guru Now. Also they believe in a ridiculous concept of Guru Gobind Singh living in hiding as Baba Ajaipal Singh in Nabha till the age of 152 years and died in 1816 instead of commonly known year 1708. Where was Guru Sahib Namdharis should be asked when Vadda Ghallughara happened. SGCP should take bold stand on these issues. Sikhism has thrived on spirit and Anakh of downtrodden people who had the will to fight and live on horsebacks. It did not survive on the basis of powerfull people like JJ, Manmohan or Montek. Sikhe is going to survive on the shoulders of hardworking ordinary Sikhs. Tomorrow I would not be surprised if the poor Bhaiyas and downtrodden castes of Hindu system turn out to be shining glory of Panth. As current lot of so called Sikhs and leaders prove to be beyond redemption point. So I laugh when I read about Sikhs in HOT SEAT, as if they are going to do miracles for Sikhe.
