Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji ki Fateh
It's been a long time since I posted here. I was planning on shifting my Sikhism related writing to a separate website and have finally done it. Please check out The New Sikh, the website continuing my journey from where I left it on Wake Up Khalsa. I hope you like it.
Sikhism is another name for battle against bad, evil and exploitation. While moving on this path countless Sikhs have sacrificed their lives. Guru Gobind Singh ji ,the tenth Guru had sacrificed their whole family including himself for keeping the seed of the Sikhism alive. His two younger sons Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh were bricked alive at Sirhind in 1704.
Have you ever seen a Bollywood movie that has a Sikh character? Probably, Yes. But, Have you ever seen a Bollywood movie that has a Sikh character who really is a Sikh? Now that's impossible. No matter a Bollywood movie has a Sikh character as the main actor, a side actor or in a very small role, Bollywood never presents it correctly. Every movie that comes out with actors playing Sikh characters, will have Sikh sentiment hurting scenes. Why is it that every movie shows the wrong picture of the Sikhs?
Today is the Gurgaddi Diwas of 2nd Guru of the Sikhs, Shri Guru Angad Dev Ji. Guru Angad Dev Ji were born as Lehna on 31st March, 1504. Gurudwara Matte di Serai now stands at the birthplace of Shri Guru Angad Dev Ji. Parents of Guru Sahib Ji were Bhai Pheru Mall and Mata Sabhrai. Guru Nanak Dev Ji gave the Gurgaddi to Bhai Lehna (later Guru Angad Dev Ji) on 18th September 1539.
