Comment regarding 1984

“How do we move on”

When growing up, I always thought that subject (course) history taught in schools and colleges was waste of time. I used to impose this question to my father and he would give very good examples why it is important to learn history, however, at that age nothing would to make sense to me because lack of life experience at a young age. But I kept those words with me and I knew that those explanations will begin to make sense sometime in the future.

During growing up years as child it is very important to what kind of external stimulus is being provided by the parents and the enivronment. Even at very young age (infants) will develop trust or mistrust from their care givers. If the child has ben neglected by the care giver than that child will begin to mistrust that caregiver. It is very important how and what kind of enivronment we are exposed at very young age and throughout because these experinences will develop our individual personalities. That’s why everyone is different in their thinking. Those years of our individual history if negelected it would bring out different outcomes in our future life.

History, gives us a strong message that we can sit and do critical analysis of it and come up with positive and constructive decisions that will guide us to make better human beings as well as reshape our future so that those mistakes are not repeated.

If a human being does not learn from their past mistakes and continues to make past mistakes it just because he or she has neglected to analyze their past (history). If we tend to forget what happened in the past then the history will repeat itself over and over again.

The reason we remember history is that we could learn from it and so same mistakes are not made by us or other people who just wants to take advantage of other people.

If a person fall on his elbows and only this person will experience the pain of falling down, whereas other people who have seen this person falling down would do two things:
1) Laugh at the whole scene and walk away
2) Make statement nothing happened forget the fall.
The person has suffered injury is the ONLY person can feel the pain NOT the spectators.
Therefore, it is easy to say forget about it by other people because they have not endured that pain at all.

Ask those families whose parents were killed, whose bothers will killed and whose sisters were raped and then killed and small children who were killed by inflicting wounds to their heads.

If we want to move on then the ENTIRE HISTORY of the world should be ignored, starting from biblical times to the present. If those people are willing to forget the entire history then we might move on.

Otherwise another attack is around the corner if we do not learn from the past!

I had a few ideas or questions on the Gurmukhi project and you will probably know if they are doable or if I am way out of league:

1) what if you can scan or use an exisiting file that has Gurmukhi and then sort all lettres based on alphabet. I don't know if it is really possible since I don't know if there is such a program that can sort text based on Gurmukhi alphabet.

2) Instead of just a few team members tackling and spending time on finding meanings to the words, just put it online so all gurmukhs can add meanings and definitions to each word and finally a panel of 5 judges (the Panj Piaray) can actually decide which definition best fits the word and include the one with most votes in the dictionary. This will save time and effort almost exponentially.

I hope I am making sense and I really don't know if the technically it is all possible or what prorams would have to be bought, written or something. But It is a thought and I am just trying to help the team.

Windows and Office programs such as Excel 2003 can sort Gurmukhi text fine as long as it is in Unicode.

ਿੲਕ ਿਸੰਘ - Your name isn't set up properly, it should be ਇਕ ਸਿੰਘ. Anyone with proper Gurmukhi support set up on their PC will not be able to read what you've written properly.
