Singh is Kinng? Why today Singh is Kinng and before Singh is clown? Bollywood industries now starting to cash in on the Singh is Kinng craze. To understand just 30 years ago these Singhs were butchered in India, in Punjab, cut like weeds out of the framework of india and today to cash in we see this type of publicity. I have not seen the movie yet, but I am sure from its success it is a typical bollywood movie, with many one liners and a 20 minute story wrapped up in 1 hour of songs and melodrama. Singh is King of what these days? No census can be done but by indications and rough numbers from punjab at least 75% of young Sikhs have given up there identity. To fit the confides of what the world and west accept. This is no King infact it is far from it, our heritage now sits in a book dusty in the corner of our homes, unopened, our history lies there. We bask in the warmth of greatness of past with very little contribution in our own lives, nobody wants to be uncomfortable, whether that's because of a job, or because we are just afraid now to stick out. It is a shame that the time this title was appropriate, Singhs were defending India from jungles, with no homes with no comforts they were fighting for righteousness sacrificing everything. And opposite today, well to do Sikhs sacrifice nothing, we cant even sacrifice our own egos, we want to look modern, to fit in , to figure out anyway to assimilate into societies which really don't even hold a candle to the brightness of our history. We follow our own brand of Sikhi, comfort Sikhi when things are not the way we like them its easily adjustable, easily we can move tenants, we can move gurbani being well educated to accommodate our own lifestyles. We really don't know what Sikhi is, today all tenants of this faith are sitting on the street, and there was a time when someone was sawed in half, cut limb by limb for things we give up on a whim. A heritage forgotten is a heritage lost. And this is the result; a fake Singh is Kinng with snoop doggy dog wearing dastaar. And we are happy that wow we get this exposure. What of those who gave their lives, sacrificed their children who were cut piece by piece and they had only one line in their hearts, a thankfulness of Sikhism. When have we thanked god for being brought up in a Sikh family, with this rich tradition, probably never. What a joke this is, what a mockery it is of what a Singh really should be. A Singh is someone who is in control of their destiny, who will not shake their ideals, and will uphold to death not only their rights but the rights of others, even if it means they will be joked about for saving hindu women at 12 o clock, they did it. Think about these details and one will have no thoughts of the selflessness of these individuals who having no problems of their own took on other ppls problems, having no homes of their own, saved other's homes. These Singhs travelled at night, in the morning the only evidence being the hoof marks of their horses, it is said at that time women of the pinds which were protected by these unsung heros would come out and touch these tracks and pray that there sons be as brave as those who travelled the night. There was no Batman or Superman, there were only those Khalsa's who defended the honor of those who had no other hope. We are part of that legacy, what will the future generations say about us? That the heros of the past have turned to drinking to cut hair to doing whatever seemed right for their on enjoyment, forgetting what a rich and one of a kind history they had. The world is full of great ppl, but I challenge anyone to show me a community that has been through the adversity that Sikhs have, at one time being wiped out by 50% of their population. (That would mean even more than the holocaust for Jews by percentage). Within a year after that time frame they were the rulers of Punjab, after being cut down they only grew, after being killed they only increased. What resilience they had, today for the cheapest things for the things that have no value, we sacrifice, our priceless gifts, our priceless inheritance from those souls just vanishes into thin air. It is true, today we are only good enough for a movie title Singh is Kinng, otherwise there is no proof of that.
