Giani Ji, I do agree with you being born blind, crippled (I will not add female) is not God's punishment. If that was punishment, then gurbani wouldn't have guided us to share and help. The beauty is though people born blind, crippled still they live in harmony. Is this bothering you to give direct answer on reincarnation. Since journey ends for all, logically it is not possible that both paapi like me and puni meets the same ends and if the end for both same, then why gurbani is emphassing on hukam rajaaiye chalna.and I dont think being Born Blind..crippled..female...poor...starving..sick..etc etc is God's PUNISHMENT....WHY all these things happen..ONLY HE KNOWS..read the Asa dee vaar concluding shabads about the Chulleh rehan charreh...
Karma and punishment, original sin etc etc are all laien concepts to GURMUTT. The Creator in Gurbani is not vengeful, he is not a punishing conniving evil genius...on the contrary He is LOVE..... epitome of Humility and Love...and HIS GRACE is for all.
