Spoken Words - Time To Act

Take a seat sit down and relax, im just gona point out a few facts
so listen up carefully cos it’s the time to act
Through out our history we've been sacrificing
We’ve been boiled alive, hacked to pieces and yet still surviving
We need to learn and educate our selves
Through this time of kaljug we gotta learn to survive
Remembering the lord all through the day and night
And learning the difference between wrong and right
Singh is known to be a king
Only when he follows Guru’s hukam
He meditates on the words of God
Frees himself from kaam krodh lobh moh hankaar
And in front of guru granth sahib ji he becomes the shining star
Mighty warriors such as Baba Deep Dingh Ji and Banda Singh Bahadur,
the Khalsa stands up for human rights inspired by Guru Tegh Bahadur,
our history is full of so many martys
we keep the legacies alive inspired by our forefathers
so here’s a small benti to all you out there
It’s nearly the end of year 2008
Let’s not hold anymore debates
Stand as the Khalsa strong and straight
Lets get our act together, before its too late..

10 Inspiring Last Lectures and Commencement Speeches Everyone Should Watch

By Laura Milligan

Part of paying for a college education means that students get access to special guest speakers, including the best possible commencement addresses and even special lectures from resident faculty. The idea of the Last Lecture, for example, rests on the idea that the professor will give a lecture as if it was his last opportunity to speak to the university community. Last lectures and commencement speeches dispense life lessons not traditionally taught in a classroom, and thanks to the viral power of YouTube, Last Lecture and commencement audiences are growing well beyond their intended numbers. Read below for our list of 10 inspiring Last Lectures and commencement speeches everyone should watch.

Last Lectures

These two professors pull from very different life experiences but share the same belief that taking risks and following your dreams is the way to be happy and impact the world.

  1. Randy Pausch at Carnegie Mellon: This famous last lecture from a dying Carnegie Mellon computer science professor touched people all over the world. The entire video lasts for approximately 1 hour, 16 minutes, and is punctuated with cheery, uplifting jokes while inspiring viewers to achieve their childhood dreams and enable the dreams of others. Pausch delivers his lecture on September 18, 2007, during his battle with pancreatic cancer. He died in July of 2008, and his lecture blasted through the Internet, accumulating over 5 million views. Pausch also worked with author Jeffrey Zaslow to publish a book version, entitled The Last Lecture.
  2. David Skorton at Cornell: David Skorton gives his hypothetical last lecture in 2008, during his term as 12th president of Cornell University. A first generation American--Skorton's father immigrated to the U.S. from Western Russia--Skorton was also the first in his family to graduate from college. He uses this lecture series to hold a "conversation" with Cornell students and to convey three messages: the importance of humility and humanitarianism; the tiny, thin differences that separate the powerful from the powerless; and the nonlinearity and unpredictability of life, which inspires Indiana Jones moments. His unshaking belief in the power of higher education inspires more than just college students already looking towards graduation: anyone who has benefited or plans to benefit from higher education can make a difference through participation in the global economy or involvement in research projects. Watch his lecture to learn the principles that define the best leaders: the ability to be open-minded, the courage to take risks and the drive to ask questions and refuse to be complacent.

Commencement Speeches

From historical addresses from Barack Obama to hysterical but still meaningful speeches from comedians like Conan O'Brien and Stephen Colbert, these commencement speeches are both inspiring and fun to watch.

  1. Steve Jobs at Stanford, 2005: The CEO of Apple and Pixar Animation, Steve Jobs, tells three personal stories in a gentle but commanding style. Jobs starts his speech with a story about his real-life adoption as a newborn. He discusses the impact that the promise of a college education had on the ultimate outcome of his adoption, and his eventual decision to drop out of college once he got there. Instead of giving up on education, altogether, however, Jobs continued to go to classes that interested him and opened him to new ideas and talents. His quiet humor and honest delivery compliment his simple belief that in order to have the courage to follow your heart, you must believe that your decisions will ultimately match up in the future, leading to a successful, happy life.
  2. Randy Pausch at Carnegie Mellon, 2008: Just two months before his death, computer science professor Randy Pausch delivers the commencement speech at Carnegie Mellon. Famous for his Last Lecture, Pausch's optimism, passion and gratitude are still evident but even he acknowledges how much weaker he is. Viewers will be inspired by his message to focus on living well, not on living a long time. This speech is just over six minutes but still offers as much inspiration and optimism as his much longer Last Lecture. In 2008, Pausch was included in TIME Magazine's list of 100 most influential people.
  3. Conan O'Brien at Harvard, 2000: Conan O'Brien doesn't waste any time cracking jokes and playing with his Harvard audience. O'Brien graduated magna cum laude from Harvard in 1985 and returns enthusiastically to share memories and engage his audience in his signature smart-but-rowdy style. O'Brien pokes fun at the intellectual achievements of students that will prove useless in real life, the snotty reputation of Harvard grads, and the predatory alumni association that "will be on your ass until the day you die." But along with the humor, O'Brien offers advice for surviving humbling first jobs and the nightmare of second guessing yourself.
  4. Barack Obama at Wesleyan, 2008: At the time that Barack Obama substituted for Senator Edward Kennedy at the Wesleyan graduation in May 2008, he was still running for President of the United States. Just over five months later, Obama won the election and became the first black president-elect. During the speech, Obama acknowledges Kennedy's personal and familial legacies during the Civil Rights movement and beyond. Besides the historical significance, Obama cautions graduates not to forget to continue to push the evolution of our country, socially, economically and environmentally. His belief that each person's private life is fundamentally intertwined with the future of the United States incites feelings of self-confidence, ambition and responsibility.
  5. Stephen Colbert at Knox College, 2006: This funny man dispenses sage but practical advice for living life as a "Yes and" person. By adhering to this improvisational theatre strategy, Colbert argues that you will set yourself up for unexpected but fulfilling experiences. By becoming a "Yes and" person, you can accept the unknown and take your life in a new direction. Besides giving the commencement address, Colbert also receives an honorary doctorate degree in Fine Arts.
  6. Will Ferrell at Harvard, 2003: Will Ferrell's commencement address is on YouTube in five, 5-minute parts, during which the comedian dances, hugs the audience, and even performs his famous impersonation on George W. Bush. Ferrell attempts to "give it you straight" but admits he can't relate to Harvard students because he received his degree from "The School of Hard Knocks." He gives Harvard students a reality check into the harsh, hypocritical world where limos arrive late and cell phones aren't allowed on airplanes. In part three, Ferrell admits that Harvard graduates are best situated for successful careers and leadership opportunities.
  7. James Carville at Tulane, 2008: Colorful political strategist and analyst James Carville gives a rousing, impassioned speech to the New Orleans graduating class, whose students had to disperse to other schools and cities after Hurricane Katrina but who returned to finish at Tulane in 2008. Carville praises their involvement in proclaiming "the age of cynicism...dead" and emphasizes the importance of feeling, rather than seeing. Even members of Carville's audience who didn't attend Tulane or live in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina will feel inspired by his message of perseverance, courage, and overcoming failure.
  8. Tom Brokaw at Stanford, 2006: Celebrated news anchor and author Tom Brokaw delivered the commencement speech at Stanford University in 2006. He jokes that expectations of Stanford graduates are exceedingly high, and that if his audience doesn't make it to celebrity status, they should consider themselves failures. Once into his speech, Brokaw comments on how high-tech this generation is, calling them the "masters of a new universe, whose boundaries are yet to be determined." He cautions them to pursue excellence beyond the Internet and technology and to remember to make real contributions to the community, citing the inspirational young people who drove the Civil Rights Movement. Brokaw's speech is a great reminder to all of us to avoid getting caught up in the sexy, exciting world of celebrity and technology and to focus our energy on being humble, nonviolent and understanding, and working hard.

Story To Live By

Story to live by

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'

One day,
someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

He asked
her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life
led her to refuse to marry him.

boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is
how the human brain often works when our status changes
Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift

before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.

you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

you complain about your husband or wife - Think

of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

before you complain about life - Think of someone who died too early
on this earth.

you complain about your children - Think of someone who desires children but they're barren.

you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets.

whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when
you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your

before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another - Remember that not one of us is without sin.

And when
depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still

Just Be There

Just be there...!

A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside.

"Your son is here," she said to the old man.

She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened.

Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the
young uniformed

Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine
wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a
message of love and encouragement.

The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed. All
through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward,
holding the old man's hand and offering him words of love and strength.
Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile.
He refused.

Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the Marine was oblivious of her and
of the night noises of the hospital - the clanking of the oxygen tank, the
laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries and
moans of the other patients.

Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said
nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night.

Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Marine released the now lifeless
hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she
had to do, he waited.

Finally, she returned. She started to offer words of sympathy, but the
Marine interrupted her.

"Who was that man?" he asked.

The nurse was startled, "He was your father," she answered.

"No, he wasn't," the Marine, replied. "I never saw him before in my life."

"Then why didn't you say something when I took you to him?"

"I knew right away there had been a mistake, but I also knew he needed his
son, and his son just wasn't here. When I realized that he was too sick to
tell whether or not I was his son, knowing how much he needed me, I stayed."

The next time someone needs you ... just be there. Stay.

In the last post I spoke on camps and how inspirational they all are. Well, I was lucky enough to get to go to KHALSA CAMP this year for my second year. AND IT WAS AMAZING!
The Amrit Vela (waking at 2 for simran - meditation - and nitnem - prayers - it was so amazing. Of course because I'm a fool and that isn't my regular habit, by the end of the week, i was totally tired yet still moving on and learning and playing around. Because of the power of the sangat - congreagation - was so vast, it keeps you awake and keeps you moving and alive.

In my opinion, the best parts were the lectures/talks. JUST AMAZING. The topics, the dialect, the presentation was amazing.

'Internal Sikhi' By Bhaji Gurvinder Singh

This talk was about the real meaning to be a sikh. It's good to wear the panj kakkars - 5 K's - and wear the dastar - turban - and do your paath - prayers - because someone tells you to but it's better to understand why and do it from the heart.

'Satguru is the Living Lord' By Bhaji Daljit Singh Virk

This talk was about expereinces that proved our guru was alive.

'7 Things to do beafore you die' By Bhaji Tarsem Singh

This talk was about, as the title says, 7 things to do before you die. This is a random title and there are lots of things to do before you die, the the talker randomly choose a number and it came to 7. Now, what do you want to do or have achieved before you die?

'The Complete Man' By Bhaji Dr Dapinder Singh

This talk was about who is the complete man? It is the person who has got the most money in the world? is it tha man who has the most power? is it the man who had died and completed their life? or is it the man who has no regrets?

'Respecting Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji: Idol Worship' By Bhaji Atma Singh

This talk was about respecting our guru - our teacher/enlightener - and whether it is idol worship to bow to him. Well, depending on why you bow, it depends. Do you bow with respect and love or is it because everyone else does? Do you bow with the insight and determination o staying on this path or not? Do you bow and ask for money or just bow and ask for god's blessing?

'Compassion' By Bhaji Manvir Singh

This talk was about compassion for each other and everyone. How no matter what anyone says or has done, or what happens or doesn't happen, you should have love to share not revenge.

'Sikh Unity' By Bhaji Manvir Singh

This talk was about how there are alot of contraversial issues in every way of life and each individuals decisions, but should that divide us? NO, to fight the evils of the world, we need to unite and stand tall together.

'This is how it happened' By Bhaji Atma Singh.

This talk was about a personal experience of Bhaji Atma Singh and how he came into sikhi and this way of life. This expereince is just one of loads of amazing expereinces and something to enlighten you when you are down. AKAAAAAAAAAAAAL !!!!!!!

Please stay on this page, as in the near future, parts of the talk will be uploaded - hopefully, if not, just e-mail me and tell me to get a move on. Thanks.

Fateh all (Hey all)
It's been a while since I've been blogging. Mainly because of my GCSE's, then building work at home so I've had no PC and no Internet for 2 months now and now I'm in London for a week. In London I've been in slough at Khalsa Primary School, helping out at there annual Khalsa Camp! (3-7 of August 2008) Last year it was very busy and they turned people away but this year, wow! it was the same.

Amazing, Inspiring, Great Talks, Great People, Great place to be !!

In the near future i will upload some pictures on this page so watch out.

But first i should tell you why it's amazing. I was helping out with the 8 - 10 year olds and some of them can be good, some can be bad but most importantly their brains are like a sponge, you tell them something and providing they were listening they take it in. Which is great. These kids asked alot of great questions and listened to some great lectures. The lectures were on; Identity and Articles of Faith, Sikh Women and Equality, The Secret of Sikhi, The way to live and many more. Even my self as a 16 year old was inspired and wowed by the effort and the knowledge that was buzzing around on these days.

You know what, on second thoughts I can't write how i'm feeling, it's just beyond words, but why don't you come and experience something your selves. For kids, you'll have to wait til next year i'm afraid but you adults and over 16's you may have a blessing yet.

I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
'Oh excuse me please' was my reply.

He said, 'Please excuse me too;
I wasn't watching for you.'

We were very polite, this stranger and I.
We went on our way and we said goodbye.

But at home a different story is told,
How we treat our loved ones, young and old.

Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me very still.

When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
'Move out of the way,' I said with a frown.

He walked away, his little heart broken.
I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.

While I lay awake in bed,
God's still small voice came to me and said,

'While dealing with a stranger,
common courtesy you use,
but the family you love, you seem to abuse.

Go and look on the kitchen floor,
You'll find some flowers there by the door.

Those are the flowers he brought for you.
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.

He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,
you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes.'

By this time, I felt very small,
And now my tears began to fall.

I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
'Wake up, little one, wake up,' I said.

'Are these the flowers you picked for me?'
He smiled, 'I found 'em, out by the tree.

I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue.'

I said, 'Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;
I shouldn't have yelled at you that way.'

He said, 'Oh, Mom, that's okay.
I love you anyway.'

I said, 'Son, I love you too,

and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.'

Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company
that we are working for could easily replace us in
a matter of days.
But the family we left behind will feel the loss
for the rest of their lives.

And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more
into work than into our own family,
an unwise investment indeed,
don't you think?
So what is behind the story?

Do you know what the word FAMILY means?

End of Parliamentary Year

At the end of the parliamentary year, David Cameron looks back. What a year it has been.

It's been a fascinating time in politics, with local elections in England and Wales, Boris versus Ken in London, by-elections across the UK -- and, of course, the General Election that never was.

Come on PM, Call that election!

Labour Party & British Sikhs

Something that got circles around on a lot of e-groups. Interesting for you all interested in politics, like me :)

The Labour Party has not done too well in recent local elections. Now, following the Tory victories in London for the post of the Mayor, and in the Crewe Parliamentary by-election, Labour can no longer take the outcome of the next general election for granted. Alarm bells are ringing even in the safest of labour seats, of which Crewe was one. So, with this background, how are the relations between the UK's sizeable Sikh community reputed to be well over 700,000, and the Labour government. The answer has to be "There are hardly any"!

Who knows how many Sikhs there are in the UK, because the government continues to refuse to count them on any firm basis. So, "they are not counted, and, therefore, do not count! " Sikh identity is hardly understood in the departments, the government agencies and services, the media or in the business community. One serious consequence is that Sikhs continue to suffer from mistaken identity and often are victims of assaults. Sikhs are not monitored and continue to suffer discrimination in all spheres of life. But then where is the evidence? After all, they are not monitored and there is no proof!

Since year 2002, I have been a close observer of the relations between the Labour government and the UK Sikhs. That was the year when the Sikhs attempted to present some sort of united front to the government on Sikh issues. It is another matter that the initiative ran into the sands. Every community has ambitious individuals: the self-appointed "community leaders" and "representatives" trying to outdo each other, but hardly in touch with grassroots issues and concerns. There is nothing new in that.

However, throughout these years the government has mostly ignored the Sikhs. Other than paying lip service to community cohesion, consultation with faith communities as "stakeholders" etc, very little attempt has been made to develop a genuine dialogue with the Sikhs in order to understand the real issues which concern them. Even today there is no coherent policy, which assures the Sikhs their identity and the freedom to practice own religion, albeit, subject to reasonable restrictions negotiated with responsible Sikhs.

After Anglo-Sikh relation going back over two hundred years, and their splendid record in the two World Wars as defenders of the free world, the loyalty of the Sikhs to the UK can never be in any doubt. As hardworking citizens, making a major contribution to the economy, their record is second to no other British community. It is regrettable that the politics of another country is sometimes allowed to influence their treatment in this country.

The Sikhs have always been traditional supporters of the Labour Party. Yet, often it is the Conservative Party, which has honoured the Anglo-Sikh historical bond and supported the Sikhs in preserving their religious identity in the plural British society. British Sikh votes and trust have to be won and cannot be taken for granted by any political party.

In my opinion, VOTE TORIES

Purpose of Life

Last exam tommorrow and I will begin to blog again regularly. Below is a little something to show what is the purpose of life and how great god is.
