    Sevadaar Singh and Neutral Singh,thankyou indeed for welcoming me.I will definitely try to contribute my views.I am most impressed by Prof Puran Singh's writings esp "Spirit born People".The other contemporay great Sikh writers are Dr Gopal Singh and Dr Gurbakhsh Singh.Today we need Sikhs who are fully present in today's times as well as of 'Gurmukh' status and fully educated in modern ways.Remember,Guru Gobind Singh Jee was himself fully educated in Persian,Sanskrit,Hindi,Punjabi,Purbi,etc,besides other major arts of his times.Of course no one can ever compare with Guru Jee but I think we can at least try to follow him as a role model.Today's Sikh youth,esp in UK is being misled by ideas of jaat-paat,vegetarianism,scepticism,gender-bias,bhangra,etc.I hope and pray that today's Sikh youth get true direction and message of Sikhi as given by our holy Gurus.:)

    very warm welcome bharat veer ji

    the concern u showed abt the sikh youth getting misled in Uk is very important, what i feel is that at the local level the youth need role models and mentors to look up to because sometimes the knowledge n role models available are quite contrary to sikhi values n sikh way of life

    regards

    etinder jee,I wholeheartedly agree.The role models currrently available at local level are clean-shaven but turbanned 'bolian' singers and bhangra dancers,who know zero about true Sikhi.When I was young in East Africa,we used to have very smart young Gursikhs as our role models to emulate.But those were the days,alas!But one thing is for sure,all is not lost.Things are better than 20 years ago,I think.

    Well Bharat Vir Singh ji, My approach is to be a sikh myself, as if a walking talking embassy of sikhism, without worrying about what others do. I just bother what I do for my religion, and how I can contribute myself for betterment of my surroundings. Thats all I care for. And o yes, seekers always seek, regardless of 20 years or 200 years ago.

    Enjoy your stay Singh ji.

    Accept my poetic expression of this website:

    Age of Sikhism: The history of Sikhism began
    the concept of Akaal so became the slogan
    Bole So Nihal
    Sat Sri akaal

    Size of Sikhism: Sikhism is the fifth largest amongst religions
    and it tackles with clarity the bundle of unanswered questions
    significant blank spots in the spiritual scenery
    now vanish and replaced with spiritual mastery

    All individuals, regardless of race, gender, or nationality
    are free to become Sikhs without special talent nor ability
    Dishonest earnings are prohibited
    and the veil of ignorance is lifted

    God is our Father, His children are we
    Love every person and pray to Thee
    Breaking down barriers of prejudice and hostility
    and opening up our hearts to one's own capacity

    living truth - should make you humble, egoless and satisfied
    who would help others if everyone who was enlightened died
    seek Guru Nanak through his hand written BANI
    that links you to the everlasting water or Pani.

    Here in Sikhphilosophy.net I came in the beginning as an ignorant fool, lol
    just to be refined in thought and actions like a bouquet of flowers - phool

    Thank you SPN

    Begum ji

    I hope I am understanding what you mean by this.

    But, this forum can be the most uplifiting place, and at the same time in the language of musicians it can also be a tough gig.. SPN is like a bouquet of flowers -- some have thorns -- always a place to learn more about oneself. Some flowers raise your soul in their beauty. Others make you stop and think twice about your reason for being here. Others teach, and the lessons are always a surprise.

    Good friend to us all, you are one in the bunch who is constantly in bloom.

    aad0002 Ji and Aman Singh Ji,

    Tell me, where else would you find so many interesting people, multiracial and multi-cultural bond. There is no other forum with such diversity.

    I wanted to ask Aman Singh Ji how to start up a Help Desk for personal questions. Broadcasting questions may be subject to ridicle by third party, thus offending the subject (person seeking advice).
    While no advice is perfect, there is always a starting point. And it will become the single most popular place to bring in more people.

    I believe only Aman Singh Ji can figure out what needs to be done for a Help Desk (by this I mean) postings will be subject to approval.

    Santokh
