hair cut stories of sikh boys and girls

For all those who are here to force their sikh beliefs on the ones who have decided to cut their hair. The foundation of what you are trying to convey is built on freedom. The guru's fought for their freedom, the freedom to beleive in what they wanted to and to look any way they wanted to. The whole sikh DRESS code came after all of that. So that being said, by trying to shun down those who are trying to get a haircut because of various reason, some more reasonable than others. You so called sikhs have now taken on the role of the muslims who tried to supress sikhism. You cannot expect sikhism to survive own suppressed sikh's because it didn't begin that way.  (Jun 11, 2012 | post #2844)

I finally got a hair cut. let me tell you my story. So one day after work, i decided i was gonna go by a barber shop, not to get a haircut but just stand outside and look at it and feel the atmoshphere. While i was standing there i couldn't resist. I carried myself inside with no intention of getting a haircut. When i went inside two ladies looked at me, And i replied. "I want a haircut, this is my first time" (i was shocked of what i just said, lol). anyways first the shampooed my hair then they cut it and it felt AMAZING! and now I get soooo many compliments and my life is a HELL of alot easier . Best decision of my life. My family reacted okay, but except my dad. (he still doesn't know). I barely talk to or see him so im gonna see what he does once he finds out. anyways guys i did what i wanted to and i feel great!  (Jul 31, 2011 | post #1735)

Im not saying your brainwashed because you believe in shiki im saying your brainwashed because you try to force people into your opinions. You think what your thought or know is the only way however thats not true. People are given a brain for a reason. And that reason is so they can make their own decisions which cater to their lifestyle. And as far as sikism is concerned its all in the heart of the people that sikhi will continue to live.  (Jul 21, 2011 | post #1640)

your talking only about the few who made it. However I know countless people and freinds which I have had personal experience of watching and learning how having a turban effects their life. And trust me my friend looks make a huge difference in todays professional and personal lifestyle. Your only a brainwashed kid. you'll look back to this in a few years and realize how blind you truly were.  (Jul 20, 2011 | post #1627)

no matter how hard the religious people try to hide the facts its bound to come out. The fact is being a Sikh is very socially disabling. I live in canada, in an area with ALOT of punjabis/indians. And I have been fired from my job at tim hortons (a Coffee shop) because my beard was considered unsanitary. Also I can tell you how many job interviews I've had where the interviewer would treat me "Differently " because of my look. And it doesn't stop there... Finding your life partner is next to impossible when even girls of your own culture prefer gora's or kala's over you. The sooner we realize that this turban thing is a tradition of the past the better.  (Jul 19, 2011 | post #1622)

Akash, I think you're points are very foolish and narrow minded. Think of it this way. Since your points and religion make so much sense to you. Maybe someone else has their own opinions and own reasons which make just as much sense to them. Then it all depends on the individual if they decide to cut or maintain their hair. So whatever you say will have no effect because in their head 2+2 = 4, in other words it all makes sense to do it their way. If their parents couldn't counsel him/her to maintain the kesh then im pretty sure your not gonna do it.  (Jul 17, 2011 | post #1584)

Everything becomes accepted within time. The thing about society is not everyone is at the same intellectual level. Think back to your ancestors, how they did certain things and how they're thought process differs from yours. Girls were practically jailed, not aloud to speak unless spoken to, not allowed to work for money. That changed(in most places), and now the people who still have that mentality are considered old fashioned and arrogant. Wearing jeans or more comfortable clothing (other than suits or saree's) was considered socially disrespectful. Now in many countries like Can, USA, England you see amaritari girls wearing jeans and its perfectly normal. You see ragi's who do kertan in the Gurdwara's wearing casual clothing once their shift is done, Same thing is going to happen with the hair tradition, We just gotta wait for the most of the sikhs to catch up. People who bring natural causes like "God gave us hair for a reason" are not thinking it through. How about nail? Why do you cut those? Who do take a shower(That wasn't created by god), why do you pick your nose, the buggers are there for a rzn, and why do you comb hair, you weren't born with a comb, if the hair gets tangled let it, its gods way. right?  (Jun 17, 2011 | post #1284)

Again you are wrong. Although parents are a lot older and experienced it doesn't mean they are more intelligent. Most Immigrant parents lack education which completely shifts their point of view of the world. Instead of education their mind is filled with unimportant matters and traditions. Just think about all the non sense crap that our culture has. Such as girls parents giving money and gifts to the boys family at weddings. And that's just one example. Again what im trying to say is, nowadays Sikh parents and the children are in two different worlds. The parents only associate with other Punjabi's and usually ignore the rest. however we teens have to socialize and make a life out of a totally different environment with all sorts of races.  (Jun 1, 2011 | post #1207)

if parents are god then what about the atheist parents? what about parents who sell their children, how about the ones who sexually abuse their kid? Dude all im saying saying is sometimes parents don't understand how we function within our society or how our social life works. We need to develop our own beliefs from our own life experiences. Why would god give us the right to think for our self just so he can tell us exactly how it should be. when it comes to beliefs there's no one way, otherwise ALOT of people are going to hell.  (May 27, 2011 | post #1166)

Firstly how old are you? Since you mentioned combing your beard i assume your at least 18. And since you 18 you have the right to make your own decisions and face the consequences of those decisions. What im trying to say is, if you decide to cut your hair you have to decide if the outcome is worth it. you have to assume the worst case scenario. Say you do get kicked out, is that worth the hair cut? To me it's worth a thousand fold thats why i decided to go for. It all depends on how much it means to you. good luck man and remember god loves you regardless.  (May 25, 2011 | post #1154)

You don't understand man. I can't represent something I don't believe in. For the past 4 years I have been researching, studying and examining the "theory" of religion. For the most part it's become a business, some of it is insane and the remaining just don't want to go to hell so they read prayers which they don't even understand. See you have to find god within you, that's the only way. I don't believe in Sikhism in its current state. I respect the Guru's and they're teachings, but i tend to look at religion from a mental state rather than how I look.  (May 23, 2011 | post #1147)

Im a 19 yr old high school grad. i took a year off school before i go to college becuz i wanted to straighten out my mental issues such as my low self esteem and social anxiety. I wasn't born with these issues i slowly developed them throughout my school years by arrogant kids picking on me for being different. Back then i would've giving everything to get a haircut, it would have made my life so much easier. I wouldn't have social anxiety or low self esteem because i would have learned to be normal and my self around people. but my dad though otherwise. Now im sitting on my ass depressed, i dont know what im gonna do. planning on getting a car getting my haircut b4 college and living in my car once i get kicked out. After 19 years of having this burden on my head, i don't even believe in it.  (May 23, 2011 | post #1145)
