Sikh Heros

The Khalsa Panth has a legacy of those who laid down their lives for the very rights we take for granted today. Rather than going to a barber our martyrs gave their heads to an executioner. Instead of cutting a hair, they had their entire heads removed in a show of defiance for their Guru. We all grow up being told these stories, but it seems that we quickly forget. So how do we reach out to the youth in their teens and 20's? A recent phenomenon has been Dharmik Songs and Albums. We all know about Shaheedi Immortality 1, 2 and 3 (if you don't please visit shaheedi.com) which have given insight to the martyrs of the 70-90's revolutionary movement...

But let's go back a few hundred years and listen to a track about the great Bhai Mati Das who sacrificed his body for the Guru and religious freedom...

Although the young jackass in the intro needs to be dragged out into the street and beaten; The track itself is far above average. It's a simple track musically, lyrically it's sound and thus stands out, the voice - the creation of a basic sound board and synthesizer carries the tune well. Enjoyable and a good tribute to the memory of....i leave you with this..."my man, matter of fact my favorite, huha"

Sikhi is about love, not hate. how is bhai mati das started yell....teri maa noo, instead of satnaam??? spread the love brethren, keep your hate to urself homiee. now lets all collectively say

Listening to this track,brought tears to my eyes.Such a great sacrifice for our sikh religon.Our religon is full of such great sacrifices,but todays youth don't know that about them. Bhai Taru Singh Jee, refused to convert,and had his scalp cut off but didn't let anything happen to his hair.Today youth be cutting it like no biggie.*sigh

...listen to the words, think to yourself what individuals did for Sikhi, and then ask yourself if we take it for granted today?...

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa. Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.
