    Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Wahegru ji ki Fateh. About a year or two back I came across this video and loved it so much I watched it like 8 times. For whatever reason I never thought about posting it on here but today I did.. and I'm going to.. so here it is.. enjoy.

    Some of you may already be aware of the video but for those that aren't

    There are numerous factual errors in this video - not the pics but in the sound tracks. The general message is inspiring, but there are some misconceptions.

    Indeed, I am very poor with the Panjabai language but do I notice a few misinterpretations with some of the translators, trying to translate the Nihangs and villagers dialect. That and like you said there are some other historical and philisophical problems with the video. But! I still enjoy it :) like you said the general message is inspiring, and I like watching them do their demonstrations. I also like the way they visualy captured many of the Gurdwaras and I like the way they show the general day to day life of the Nihangs. It could be better though. Mabey I'll make my own documentary on Nihangs Muhahaha:seriousmunda:

    One thing that they reported throughout the video and it is something that is rarely reported in other articles and videos winkingmunda Nihangs take in little boys, some are orphans, and give them a better life, an exciting life for a boy, than they would otherwise have. I am thinking of Yoga in that video. The cherish those children.
     
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!
