Here is Persian Darius...you'll notice that the map seems to end at the northern Edge of the Sub continent...but I think this is probably because many rulers didn't venture in the India out of respect for their mother or something.



Darius Map

Again...The whole region as One place and this is about 1800 years before Tamerlane. Unfortunately...the information will get more abstract the farther back you go and the maps aren't reliable. Even Herodotus notice a peculiar relationship between the Egyptians and the Indians.

I assure you that our modern maps and ideas concerning states skews reality. I am just as certain that Sikhs hold down the British throne is unusual to say the least.

As I pull back the darkness which protects the British Monarchy (ha ha ha) it seems that what begins to emerge is the true nature of your "Queen".

Is it possible that she is not at all British, but instead an Indian Witch that has throughly pull the wool over the eyes of everyone in the UK.

ive always been under the notion it was a german ancestory tree they had behind them ,



I heard that too. This is good actually as the British people are accustomed to being Ruled by many different people. They'll be ruled from India in the near future.

seems like a good idea for the monarchy, i mean British soldiers would think twice before firing onto other Brits, while Indian nationals would probably just follow orders and fire.

Good! I think finally some racial diversity in one of the most highest seats of power is good for us all. It will show how racism is totally made up and wrong. God save the Queen!

But this is a triumph of multi-culturalism...the queen is not in danger from these two Sikh bodyguards. Besides the British have never done anything for them to want to get revenge; they are friends to all.

They killed Indira with machine guns because she sent the troops into the Golden Temple and desecrated the temple.

The guards went on vacation went back to Punjab saw what she had done, were baptistized into Sikhdom when back and killed her ass.

The Sikh fought the Britist Three times, beat them each time, in one battle 600 Sikhs defeated 10,000 Britist soldiers.

I know how they beat them.
The Britist finally said will you the Sikhs, come and be on our side we want to be friends.

The Sikhs don't fool around one of The high Britist General found this out when he was murdered, back in England.

The Sikhs are very good people and would never say anything bad about another religion.

If you are Sikh enemie, after they half way kill you, they will give you a very nice meal.

The Sikh religion was in the beging, a combination of Vaishnavism and Muslim theism, later the Hindu and Muslim ideals were combined.

In a dispute over who should be next leader, the Muslims killed the sons of the tenth Guru,there was no one left to takes his place, so before his assassination he proclaimed the line of Gurus would stop with him, and declaired the Adi Granth (Granth Sahib) Bible, would be the Guru, there for the Book the Eleventh Guru.

You don't have to read the whole book, but if you read and understand first page, the anwser is Love.

The Sikhs are from India. Sikhs are trained to fight, and (traditionally) carry a sword with them. They also don't cut their hair, but wrap it up into a turban. This, surprisingly, offers some serious protection to the head when fighting.

As for them guarding Queen Elizabeth - why not? The Sikhs fought alongside the English during World War II. There is a time-honored tradition of them fighting with the British, once they stopped fighting against them.

I can't see what the fuss is.

I was unaware that the British Government still operated a Sikh Regiment...

I was under the impression that all ended when, say, Britain was no longer a colonial power of India??

There is no Sikh regiment in The British Army but Sikh's are well integrated into British society and as such it is not uncommon for them to sign up into our Armed Forces.

news.yahoo.com...

However, I must say that even though Sikh's are well respected this does smell of a PR job, which is regrettable.

Well India was a major country in the british empire, so it looks as if they still want to protect the Queen.

Remember Ishtar? Like Ishtar, Elizabeth has failed and those two Sikhs have arrived to take her back to see Ereshkigal.

It's a symbolic move. Since India gained their independence, having Indian guards is a little jab at India. She is one evil woman.

Am I correct that the Gurkhas are the only non British troops in the British Army that have their own units? I mean I know there are Irish, Australians, Canadians, New Zealanders (anyone from any Commonwealth country can join the British Army, Royal Navy/Royal Marines, or the Royal Air Force) but they serve in integrated units right?

And how does the the Bermuda Regiment, Gibraltar Regiment, Cayman Islands Volunteer Rifle Corps, Falkland Islands Defense Force, etc fit into the picture? Are they part of the Territorial Army or the regular British Army?

I don't know to be honest, as you say, I think anyone from the Commonwealth can join the British Armed Forces but they have to be in integrated units, only The Gurkha's have their own Regiment.

I had some squaddies in my pub a few weeks ago, they were having there first free weekend before passing out of training.
Some of these guys were from various Carribean Islands.
They were joining The Scottish Guards.

Oh i agree.I meant no offense to the royal officers.As i implied there was some kind of internal Indian religeous conflict taking place at the time that here guards were involved in.

Exactly. And this symbolism is about the recent Mumbai attack and the future war between India and Pakistan. The Queen bet her jewels on the winner.
