Dear Veer Panjwad Ji, 

I like your sincere thoughts for the first time.
In the coming New Year, while I like all the  other readers, writers and friends to share good wishes, let us do a little soul searching.

For quite some time, www.5abi.com.  has been a venue for us all  ( worldwide) to read   literary items, Gurbani Katha,  news and share views, free of charge.  A few times I read pleas, from like minded friends to help this wonderful Punjabi magazine financially. But ever since, not one person had the courage to come out with a $ 100.00 or $ 50.00 donation.

While some people like to show off  their vanity ( I am sure they know) by sending their letters almost every day.  And then they boast of being one of the INTELLIGENCIA too.

If you care to see a box on the right, second from the top that reads PATHKAN  DA  SEHYOG. you will see only one donor from America, one from Austria, and rest from Australia. I am one from them. I really request all of you to please pledge and send cheques to:

5abi Limited
3 Applecross Close,
Gorse Covert,
United Kingdom

Most papers nowadays thrive on Ads from these Babas and Peers, and Sayyads, selling CURES OF ALL WORLDLY  ILLS. We have always seen, the editor  has a self respect of not sending a general appeal.  So it is our bounden duty, to realize that his or his team's time ( in India) is not free.  Let us feel responsible and not UNGRATEFUL, if you care about Punjab, and the Punjabi language.

Gurbani says  AKIRT GHAN DI NAZAR.....  Hope we all understand.

Dear editor,

Another year is passed as usually. Thousands killed by Indian Goveronment under the name riots, encounters
still waiting for justice. Sajjan Kumar is acquited after 16 years. It was just an eyewashing by the Indian Goveronment. "Justice delayed is justice denied." Killers or alleged killers of Indra Gandhi, General Vadiya,Rajiv Gandhi were hanged even after passing through so many courts and long procedures. How do we celebrate 1st day of year 2003.

To protest against Sajjan Kumar's acquital, Sikhs worldwide should protest in a democratic and religious manner on republic day by wearing black badges in republic day celebrations. Republic Day is the day when
Indian constitution was instituted. Indian constitution has failed to address wrongs to Sikhs. Killer of  thousands of Sikhs in 1984 cannot be indicted. HKL Bhagat, Jagdish Tytler & Sajjan Kumar all were acquited. Sikhs still have to be married under Hindu Act, and pay tax under Hindu undivided Family Status. If India is a secular republic why cannot word Hindu be changed with Indian or simply "Marriage Act" for marriage and "Undivided Family" for tax purposes.

It is a shame that thousands of Sikh youths could be killed in fake police encounters. Why cannot Sajjan Kumar be done away with by Indian police like Sikh youth.

The Jathedar of Akal Takhat should give a call to Sikhs to protest worldwide peacefully on republic day. Indian Embassies worldwide should be targetted by reciting Kirtan peacefully in front of them. Similarly Kirtan should be recited in front of DC's offices throughout North India especially Haryana, Punjab and New Delhi. Black badges should be worn in republic day celebrations by Sikhs.

Comes the years two thousand and three,
May Satguru keep it trouble free.

Sometimes, have to pass through prickly walks,
But, may Almighty not give twisting calls.

May life-music not lapse into discarding notes,
And God may fulfil all our modes.

New Years may bring New Thoughts,
And let life extend without any rots.

Recent acquittal by Delhi court of Sajjan Kumar, a former Congress MP has opened old wounds of victims of events of 1984 and has pained all justice loving people of India. Mr. Sajjan Kumar was one of the main accused of anti Sikh Massacre of 1984 after Mrs. Indira Gandhi’s assassination. The persons clearly responsible for the pogrom had been acquitted. First, it was former Parliamentary minister HKL Bhagat, then Jadish Tytler and, Now Sajjan Kumar. The government did not plead these cases properly, which resulted in acquittals on technical grounds. This decision has shocked Sikhs and other justice loving people worldwide. According to recent report in The Tribune (Chandigarh) there are 5000 plus widows in Delhi alone. According to Mr. Ramesh Thapar, editor of Seminar, estimated the loss of Sikhs life in Delhi as between 6000-8000. Further details and eye witness accounts are well documented in a report, “Who are the Guilty” by citizens for democracy (this report was brought out by retired Indian jurists and intellectuals but it was banned by then Congress government in center). Not to mention tremendous economical loss and faith in judicial system.

Few weeks ago persons indirectly responsible for attack on Indian parliament were awarded death sentences by Delhi court for their suspected part in conspiracy. One lady was awarded jail term just to teach her a lesson so other people will not dare to participate or give moral support to this kind of act of terrorism. There was no clear cut evidence for her direct involvement but she was awarded punishment in the interest of National. But similar consideration was not given in punishing perpetuators of murderers of thousands of innocent civilians in Nation’s capital. So far Indian state has failed to bring any one else to justice for these murders.

We all know that that some misguided Americans tried to take law in their own hands by killing innocent south Asian and others after incident of September 11, 2001. American authorities immediately arrested those people and killer of Balbir Singh Sodhi has already been given punishment. City of Mesa, Arizona has built a memorial to honor Balbir. Every thing was done to lend a healing hand to families of those victims. Sikhs are still waiting for healing hand from Indian state even after 18 years. Many governments have changed since then but victims of 1984 are still looking for justice and healing hand.

Hi there,

I have read this article"jehi teri gutt dekh lai..." and realized that this is true. Some stuff which reminds us our culture such as Gutt, gani, Kantha, Punjabi jutti, lathe di chadar....., but you can hardly see "gutt" in Canada, mostly girls like "khulle vaal". Even girls who come to canada, after few days, they like to change thier hair style. "Pher bhala sannu "jarag da mela dekhan nu kitho miluga ethe, canada wich, right?"

Now, reh gayee ghar de kum-kaar di gall, ke, In-laws always ask if their future daughter-in-laws can do all the house work. Jidda bhai kehnde hunde aha "Aurat bhamee chand te chal javee, pur 'roti' ja 'ghar da kum' ta jaroor auna chahida."

Punjabi mela sannu apne culture varee dasda hai. Singers sing what people want to listen. It is their(singers)profession. Nobody wants to screw their profession no matter what feild they are in. 'Eh understanding sannu listen karan walia nu honi chahidi hai'. Anyway, we should keep our culture alive through these punjabi mela(melas), "Night clubs nalo ta pher bhi changa hai."

Dear Editor,

Macleans.CA (Canada)

I appreciate Reenu Bakshi's (article in Macleans on 12/23/02) concern for ending gang violence amongst Sikh youth in British Columbia. But she is unable to dig out real causes for this unfortunate situation. Many of us, as parents have to take this responsibly to put halt to this tragedy. But I like to clarify Punjabi culture has many follies like other cultures do-but Sikh faith is ultra modern, progressive and very much against senseless violence. She has unjustly blamed Sikh religion as underlying factor for this problem. She claims to be of Punjabi (her first name is suggestive of her being non Sikh, I apologize in advance-if I am wrong) background. She is probably (or her Bakshi parents) from urban Punjab, because many Punjabi urbanites have poor understanding of issues and culture of large majority of rural Punjabis. Most of the rural Punjabis are from farming background and they have been facing serious social, economical exploitations and human rights hardships in Punjab, India.

Many farmers have committed suicides in Punjab due to their inability to repay loans. Many of them will do any thing; even take serious risks to migrate to Canada or USA in search of better economical opportunities. Majority of Punjabi's living in Canada are from rural Punjab. They (rural Sikhs/Punjabi's) obviously come from very structured family oriented (agrarian) cultural background. But when they land in Canada, they are confronted with many challenges of urban and western lifestyles confounded with their limited understanding of these issues (being new struggling immigrants in these new Countries). Many parents work 12-16 hours a day in search of better financial situation and meantime their kids are completely ignored. These kids are growing confused between many different values and identities. Many of them are getting their cultural education from Television both American/Canadian plus Indian videos (Hindi movie industry is a big business in British Columbia; Hindi movies have no rating for violence and sex).

These kids are facing cultural crisis complicated by Gurdwaras politics. Historically speaking Gurdwaras have played very positive role in the lives of average Sikhs but over the last 15-20 years many Gurdwaras have become center of political struggle rather than places of spiritual learning and social uplifting of its members. Indian politics have played very negative roles in the lives of young Sikhs growing during these years in British Columbia or other places with large Sikh populations. Majority of Sikhs are hard working, aggressive and very progressive people. They have always contributed way more than their numbers in India's development. Despite restrictive policies of India 10% of Indian army officers come from Punjab. Sikhs (in Field Hockey) had won more Olympic Gold medals than other South Asian community; Punjab has more singers and artists than any other region of India. I think the root cause of this violence amongst young Sikhs is due to their identity crisis, lack of discipline and no Sikh values. Surely, it is complicated by their parent’s lack of education and inability to comprehend these issues. Sikh leaders need to pay serious attention to this matter. Youngsters are torn apart between multiple identities. Many other immigrant communities have faced similar problems in the past.

Sikhs have lived in North America for more than a hundred years and issue of this kind of gang violence is less than one decade old, so how can you blame Sikhism as root cause for this problem. Rather many of these so called Sikhs (growing without any values) are victims of circumstances not of their own making. These kids have no idea about Sikhism or any other faith. I have not heard or read that any of these violent kids were practicing Sikhs. Once again I agree that Sikh community need to open their eyes-Yes we need major reform in our approach to our younger generation.

SSA Kandola Saheb,

It is not that Delhi High Court that has acquited Sajjan Kumar. It is the Sikh Qaum by its stupidity that has got the 1984 carnage killers go scot free by Raising and diverting attention towards useless issues like:

1. Langar on chair.
2. Useless fight between defunct old corrupt leaders like Talwandi, Badal & Tohra.

If anybody has any sense of shame they should stop useless issues like chairs and all. Let people's calf muscles be strained by sitting on floor. But we should not let killers of our Sikh brethren get away scot free.

If we want to be progressive, let us do the way Jews are progressive while been traditionalist. They still hunt for concentration camp killers around the globe. We cannot do the same in New Delhi.

Let the Langars have chairs provided people who want chairs can concentrate their energy in getting 1984 killers convicted.

Let us pledge to vote for Badal if he can get at least 5-10 people convicted for killing of 7000 people in 1984 through his friendship with Chautalas and Vajpayee.

We as a community need to hang our head in shame especially the Badal's and FurnitureDhari's for raising all these needless controversies.

I liked u r article about the Gadar To Agadi Tak. I found so man new things those I never knew before. It is a very important article for all those people those do not anything about the Gadari Babays. I read their contribution in Indian independent, it is too much. It really helps the people to gain new knowledge about our elders like how hard they fought to make our country independent. I hope u will continuously publish these kinds of articles. I thank u very much for giving us new knowledge.

Thank You

I just read a letter from a veer G Singh, It is true. Some youngsters in New Zealand also do not know about us. Our leaders and people who has some love for Sikhism and have very good resources, should do some thing. It is a big challenge today for Sikhs, specially who are the real ones. White youngsters they just look for the turbans and making remarks. We should make propaganda, exhibitions and internationally media approach. If all the well wishers of Sikhism could make joined efforts toward ths challenge, it wil be fanatastic.

I am sending this latest news that Sikhs are facing many discreaminations. This latest news that accured in the United States that Sikh are having hard time traveling. I want the Sikh media to take action and fight to get their human and civil rights. We still have not reach more media people to teach them about Sikhism. The latest inccdent that i heard that a sikh man was traveling in the united states with all the right documments but he had to face a lot of problems because he is sikh and he don't know English. The immigration and security had misstreat him. I want to let the sikh media know that we still have not reach the world and teach the world about Sikhism. I don't know what the Sikhs leaders are doing......

Eventhough after having so many parties in the united states i think they are not doing anything. These people form parties to show their self as an fraud that they are very kind people who help the sikh media.But sad thing is we all don't know about this. I hope you get my point, and i am very thankful to you if you share this with media. At the end.. Sat Sri Akal ji...............................................................

Dear Readers,

I have been reading the letters of both Mr Iqbal Singh and Mr Major Singh Thind. The core issue discussed was " whether it is right to have/eat langar on chairs and tables in a Gurdwara Complex. The issue has been raised before and the debate did more harm than good to the overseas Sikh community. The already fragmented community was further shattered by allegations and counter allegations of both the pro and anti chair/table groups. The same controversy dogged the Khalsa Diwan Sikh Temple of Hong Kong in 1998 which was ultimately settled-with the MAJORITY of sangat agreeing to have chairs-tables removed from the langar hall . To this date we can hear rumblings from the 'OLD' immigrants about the 'Pichrapan' of the newly arrived immigrants.

Difference in opinion is bound to remain between long settled and newly arrived immigrants in all parts of the world-but to call people who prefer to sit down on floor as 'BACKWARD THINKING' cannot be justified. The Japanese and the Koreans eat their food sitting on floors at home while the Europeans prefer to have their food on the chairs -table. Does this imply that the Japanese or Korean people are not forward thinking or that they are somehow inferior to their western counterparts?

Sadh-Sangat Ji the question is:

For how long can the so called 'MODERATES' stop the chairs/tables moving from langar halls to the darbar sahib?

"Guru Nanak" or "Guru Nanak Dev"
Pritpal Singh Bindra
Recently the question of the attachment of DEV with the name of Guru Nanak was raised by a very prominent Sikh Journalist and Broadcaster of Toronto. Is the insertion of DEV with the name of Guru Nanak the result of some Brahminical endeavour or just an innocent and unintended attempt? I leave it to the readers to judge. I just want to throw some light on the subject through the available literature.

The Janam Saakhis are the oldest written record in respect of the life of Guru Nanak. Among them Puratan Janam Saakhi is considered to be the earliest one. Mostly it refers to Guru Nanak as "Baba Nanak" and occasionally "Guru Nanak." Then comes the Janam Saakhi written by Meharbaan (1581-1646). He was the nephew of Guru Arjan Dev and a prominent writer and singer of Guru's hymns. For Guru Nanak he mainly uses, "Guru Baba Nanak" or "Guru Nanak Jee." The word DEV does not exist there either.

Similarly, Bhai Mani Singh, contemporary of Guru Gobind Singh confines his address to Guru Nanak Jee or
Baba. No DEV is found in the Janam Saakhi written by him. Even in the contemporary records, DEV is not traceable. Dr. Piara Singh Padam did a monumental task by discovering Guru Keeyaan Saakhiyaan written by Bhai Saroop Singh Koshish in 1790 CE on the basis of the genealogical records kept by his ancestors who had been the Bards at the Guru Ghars. In the works of Macauliffe, Hari Ram Gupta, Khushwant Singh, etc, the word DEV is not visible. In the text of 'A History of the Sikh People' Dr. Gopal Singh does not use this word in the text but in the index he mentions "Nanak Dev, Guru." Why?

Khazan Singh's History of The Sikh Religion (1914) is devoid of this word although he frequently states "Mehta Kalu CHAND."  Now the question arises how did this DEV emerged with the name of Guru Nanak. Among the medieval records, to my inference, it appeared first time in the Vaars of Bhai Gurdas (Scribe and contemporary of Guru Arjan Dev). In the beginning of Vaar twenty-four he says, "Satgur Nanak Deo aap upaeo." Also in the Vaar 3 Pauree 13 it says, "Satgur Nanak Deo Guran Gur Hoyea." My attention has been drawn towards a shabd from Sri Guru Granth Sahib, as well, "deekhiaa aakh bujhaaeiaa sifuthee sach sumaeo, thin ko kiaa oupudhaeseeai jin gur naanuk daeo" (Page 150, line 13 of SGGS.) The word "daeo" has been interpreted in variant ways. Some consider it as the part of the name as "Guru Nanak Dev" and some as "endowed by Guru Nanak."  In the current history we come across this notion in the writing of Bhai
Sahib Vir Singh. In his article, "Uche Khandan Dey Kautak" published in 1900AD, and included in Guru Nanak Chamatkar, Bhai Sahib mentions, "Agley sapheyan wich Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee daa sach khand vaasi hona ...." If Bhai Sahib Vir Singh Jee has used this word, then there must be some authentication available. Is the addition of DEV with the name of Guru Nanak, a deliberate Brahminical attempt as suggested by some protagonists of Sikhi or an inadvertent or genuine act? Only some serious academic and scholarly investigation can clarify. The academicians at the Guru Nanak Dev University must have the right answer; the name, as I understand, was changed from Guru Nanak University to
Guru Nanak Dev University.

I am viewing the 5abi.com website for the first time and I am very pleased with your it and I pray to God that he gives you more strength to keep this web going for ever especially the explanation about The Holy Granth Shaib. Please can you add a collection of Punjabi songs on your website?  Again thank you for putting together this brilliant Pubjabi web site. 

Regards, Harbinder Bolina
