  1. I have always been curious about this. Maybe some of you on these forums can help me out. When you made the decision to starting wearing a dastar, who did you learn from? Did you learn from friends who were older? The granthis from the gurdwara? From relatives during a visit to India? I had it easy: my dad taught me when I was a kid. But I know most of you had fathers and grandfathers who didn't wear dastars. I must say, I really admire you guys. When I was growing up in America, it was extremely rare for a man to wear a dastar if his father didn't, but I h
  2. WJKK WJKF I currently wear a patka and need to learn how to tie a dumalla. I’m 16. I only have 3 weeks to learn (let me know if the type I want to wear will be too hard to learn in this time frame. I have no one to help irl only YouTube videos). Firstly, I have managed to finally get some dumalla cloth and have at the moment left it to soak overnight as I was told this is what you need to do as I had great difficulty trying to learn how to tie one without it washed. So I have 2 lengths of 6m long 0.5m wide cloth. Is this a good amount for the type I want? (Photo will be attached belo

    Amrit & Dastar

    Hi to all, So I have problem, maybe it's not even a problem, maybe it's my insecurities I don't know. So I'm ready to take Amrit 100%. I do my Paath, I don't remove no hair whatsoever and try to be a good human being in general. So I believe when I do take Amrit my head should be covered at all times . However I am having trouble with this. So I've been practicing the Dastar for many months now and it simply does not suit me. I know you are probably thinking I am silly for even writing this but it does not suit my face. I've also tried different styles. So i figured I
  4. What is the "Fifty" when it comes to turbans?
  5. Hello, I would like to get SikhSangat's observations on the number of dastar-wearing Sikh women compared to the number of dastar-wearing (non-trimming, sabat surat) Sikh men under the age of 40 (I am most interested in the younger generation). It will be very interesting to see what Sikhs who live in the different part of the world have observed. Please state where you live, and whether your observation pertains to your locality, or if you believe it to be global (or over a wider geographic range than the area where you live). Please state your answer in the following fo

    rumal knot, patka, dastar

    This question is to parents of sons. When your son was growing up, did you have him wear a Rumal knot first covered by a handkerchief, then patka, then finally, full dastar?

  8. Thought I would share some information with fellow dastar wearing brothers and sisters as a word of caution. Over the weekend I visited Drayton Manor theme park (near Birmingham, UK) for the first time. I've been on all rollercoasters and rides wearing my pugg and have never had any issues both here in the UK and Florida. However when I went on Shockwave the stand up rollercoaster at Drayton Manor after the first loop there was a rapid acceleration and the wind factor literally blew my pugg right off. I literally couldn't believe it. It was not as if my turban was not tied tightly or
  9. WJKK WJKF, below is an account on Instagram I found, that belongs to a "caur". *edited* It is not the art that bothers me but the artist herself. tbh: what is happening?

    Dastar / keski

    Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh ji I'm kesdhari, male. I wear a dastar. I was wondering, can men wear a keski in place of a dastar too? Like many women do. Sometimes I wear a keski around the house or if I'm having a lazy day and aren't going out or expecting company. Just wondered where we stand on this...
  11. As a UK Sikh, I voted for the UK to leave the EU on the single issue concerning me "as a Sikh". This was the 'Ban on Religious Symbols in the Workplace Upheld' by the EU. June 6 The European Court of Justice's advocate general said May 31 that private companies in Europe can ban all visible religious symbols in the workplace. According to legal experts consulted by Bloomberg BNA, the opinion requires employers to allow all religious symbols or none at all. Although nonbinding, the opinion is significant because it is likely to be followed by a similar binding legal ruling later this year by
  12. Hi all, I am 23 years old, and last September I stopped cutting my hair and and started to wear a Dastar. Around a month ago a spot appeared on my forehead, as I wear my Dastar every day it hasn't healed properly and every time I remove my Dastar the spot looks flattened, red and is very sore to the touch. Over the past 2/3 weeks the spot as appeared to heal, then another one appeared alongside it and it has become uncomfortable during the day and very painful. I have used various spot ointments, bio-oil, sudocrem etc to try and help it heal and now put a plaster on over it prior to tying my
  13. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-35563415 Why are some Sikh women now wearing the turban? By Rajeev GuptaHeart and Soul, BBC World Service 8 hours ago From the sectionMagazine Devinder and her daughter Har-Rai The turban is worn by millions of Sikhs - traditionally, mostly male ones. Now many Sikh women are donning it, too. Why? "Doing this has helped me stay grounded and focused on what my responsibilities are as a human being." Devinder is in her early 40s. She's a slender, tall British-Indian Sikh woman. She works as a teaching assistant at her local school in Ilford, north-

  15. I am not making any negative statement against kaurs who wear daastar as my own singhni wears daastar. However, i am seeing the trend of people of my age who are going away from daastar after their marriage fails. I have lost the count of daastar bibian who once were forefront in running sikh camps etc and few of them i saw their marriages fail and somehow they start blaming sikhi for everything and quickly shuns the daastar and bombard their with tons of makeups etc. Personally i never seen a sardar who shuns wearing turban after failed marriage but its different than bibian. I do know youth
  16. Sat Sri Akal, Sadh Sangat jee, I have a question that I wanted an answer to.. I am a Hindu from Punjab. So please pardon my ignorance. I just wanted to know if Wearing a Kalgi is prohibted to all. I know that in Hindu weddings the Kalgi is worn. But in Sikh weddings it is not. Because there is no one as great as Kalgidhar Dasmesh Pita Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Does this apply just to the weddings or in general aswell.

  18. VJKK VJKF I wear a Kenyan style dastar and I've never been able to get my patka underneath quite right. I've got no one to teach me and I've been tying what is a basic 'child like' patka underneath for years. What do you tie under your dastar? I want something that feels a little more comfortable underneath. Any help would be greatly apprenticed. Please post pics and/or directions how to tie. Bhul Chuk Maaf

  22. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ke Fateh! Sangat Ji, the reason I have started this topic is to allow sangat Ji to give their views/opinions/reviews on dastaar (i.e. size, material, style/type, tips & techniques). Even though I know there are many post regarding the dumalla or dastaar, I thought it would be great if we are able to have all questions/queries and answers under one post (help me especially). Few questions for example: What material is best for dumalla/dasaar and Why? Length of your/common dumalla/dastar? Experience you have gained from learning to tie your dumall
  23. So basically, with Maharaj ji's Kirpa I will finally be blessed with Amrit next week and honestly I can't wait I'm just so so excited. Thing is, I don't know how to do my dastar on that day considering the panj piaarae put Amrit in ur kesh as well. I don't want to do a joora I want to do my dastar I just don't know how to tie it so they can still put Amrit in my kesh. Any ideas? Please help.
  24. So I recently got a lot of new dastars from India but the dastar fabric just isn't coming out right is there a special way I should wash the fabrics or???
