WJKK WJKF Sangat ji, I am a high school female student and i have taken amrit.There are some boys at my school who also have taken amrit. One time I decided to talk to one if the boys because i had a question. He unexpectedly got mad and said leave me alone and he later said ..."Bas theek va tusi sare idade hi koi va Stockton Gurdwara chale jao oh wounder ho jande oh taksali age bacho ina ton." I think I know what he is saying but can somebody clarify. He goes to the Gurdwara in Manteca and I go to the Gurdwara in Stockton. When he says Taksali, does he mean different types of Sikhs.. in the Sikh community. I thought that God was in everybody and we shouldn't differentiate between Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh, etc. So why are Sikh people themselves splitting themselves up??? He and his friends also stare at me or my friend for a short amount of time, who is also indian. It's like evertime he sees me he gets mad and leaves. I haven't done nor said anything to him... He also says that girls should stay in their spot and guys should stay in their spots. I don't see anything wrong with simply talking to a guy if I need to ask a question WJKK WJKF

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Theres no caste, in Sikhi just a Indian culture thing. Every religion in India has caste.

With Jathebandi, its not a bad thing, but when people get pride over theres and think there is better thats when things get a bit messed.

Theres nothing wrong with talking to guys, if your intentions are right then you should. We should learn to live in the world, not avoid people, so your doing the right thing.

Your doing the right thing, just keep doing what your doing. Guru Ji has told us not to discriminate anyone, it's just Indian culture and there families opinion being passed to them.

Please forgive me if i said anything wrong or offensive.

Jo Bole So Nihaal Sat Sri Akal!

Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki Fateh!

You are right, Ji. Don't confuse cultural baggage with living as Khalsa. The Khalsa was created to be beyond all that. Just don't react. Be great. Be graceful. Be Bright. Be courageous. Be your beautiful self. Let your smile be your shield and no one can hurt you in any way. You are the example that will inspire others! Waheguru!
