Sikhs a martial race! How do we acknowledge it. Should we have a surname on battles.

    Dear brother


    The valour of Sikhs and there ancestor is well known in different wars from Alexander time >

    To quote wikepedia :-

    This heroism of Punjabis was highlighted with Alexander the Great's invasion of Punjab. In a letter to his mother he wrote, "I am involved in the land of a leonine and brave people, where every foot of the ground is like a well of steel, confronting my soldier. You have brought only one son into the world, but everyone in this land can be called an Alexander”.

    I have seen many of our warriors just casually mentioning there great feat of valour casually.

    I have unfortunately also seen lot of sikhs who have never seen a war enjoying the fruits of sikhism. ( including me )

    I guess we can have a surname as appendaged to our name which would show which battles one has fought.

    It wlll have nothing to do on whose side one was in the fight .

    It shall simply reflect your valour.

    For eg

    I could write

    Harinder pal Singh Dhai Put

    ( suggesting my lineage is from nadir shah time )

    Harinder pal Singh Porous ( If my ancestor is from Porous fame ).

    Harinder pal Singh Bandhi Chhor

    Harinder pal Singh Black Lions

    Harinder pal Singh Egypt 1914

    Harinder pal Singh Galipoli -1915

    Harinder pal Singh Neuve Chapelle

    Harinder pal Singh Mesopotamia 1918

    Harinder pal Singh Afghanistan - 1929

    Harinder pal Singh Ieper

    Harinder pal Singh Neuve Chapelle

    Harinder pal Singh Cassino

    Harinder pal Singh Piare

    Harinder pal Singh Rattrays

    Harinder pal Singh Siam & Malaya - 1945

    Harinder pal Singh Chumb 1965

    Harinder pal Singh 1971.

    Harinder pal Singh Kargil.

    The morality of war shall not count because it is in any case decided by the winner.

    It is just acknowledging the bravest amongst us .

    what do you say ?
