Sahibzadey - A saga of valour and sacrifice

Sahibzadey is an Animated film based on the martyrdom of the two younger Sahibzadey.

My cousin has seen the film and said that it is really good. He is trying to do his bit for the film and has bought 20 copies of the film. He is selling the copies for £6.50 + p and p.

I have already ordered mine!

Read more about the two younger Sahibzade, of Shri Guru Gobind Singhs here and here.

They are widely regarded as two of the youngest martyrs ever. The youngest Sahibzada was only 5 years old.

From what I remember about when I was 5, I can honestly say that I didn't have a clue about anything. (I probably still don't ;-)

If you are interested in obtaining a copy please email me on (sugi007 at yahoo dot com).

Simple Living High Thinking (What is it all about)

What is Simple Living High Thinking?

Why did I choose the title 'Simple Living High Thinking' for my blog?

It all started when I was in India in 1998, when I was 18.

It was my first real time in India (I had been when I was about two years old but I couldn't remember anything about it), we were travelling all over Panjab trying to see all the Gurdware etc...

We were travelling everywhere by car and we were often behind big trucks that were carrying good around the country. One time we were stuck behind a truck and I noticed that it had something written next to the number plate. It said 'Do Good, Be Good' in English. I liked this and while we were out and about, I started to look out for more of these on trucks. To my surprise there were lots of these words of wisdom on trucks.

Some examples I remember are:
  • 'We two, our two'
  • 'Share your wealth'
  • 'Simple Living High Thinking'
When I saw 'Simple Living High Thinking' I found that it really struck a cord with me. I thought that it was a simple but important message. It may mean different things to different people but for me it all about living humbly but at the same time having the ability to think about deeper issues like who we are, what we are doing here and how to live a good life.

I have always liked 'Simple Living High Thinking' and I try to live this (abit ;-). So I thought that it would be a good title for my blog.

Desi Designs - Simple Living High Thinking

*****Shameless plug starts*****

I have been thinking about setting up a shop on CafePress for a long time now.

I have finally decided to bite the bullet and set it up. It is called Simple Living High Thinking. I have gone for a Bollywood / Desi humourous theme.

Here are some of the designs that I have put on it at the moment.

Classic Gabbar Singh Dialogue

Indian Road Sign showing how close Southall is to Panjab

Motif showing the Dream Girl of Indian Cinema, Hema Malini.
