  2. I see lots of patka wearing boys into Sikhi up until about age 16. It’s like they are young and dumb (in a good way). Their mums tie their patka and it looks very smart, and bring them to the gurdwara regularly. But age 16 onwards what happens? First they tie their hair back with patka, then they tie African durags. It’s not uncommon to spot them wearing caps and topis. When the facial hair comes through it gets trimmed and shaped. Once 18 drinking and clubbing begins. Young and dumb (being innocent) gets replaced growing up, but what with? Is it fashion, bad sangat or something els
  3. Hi, While undergoing surgery (as a patient), can you wear Patka? Or do you have to remove it and only wear whatever cap kind thing they give you? Thanks
  4. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh, I come from a Hindu family, but have never been very attached to Hinduism. I was born and raised in India, and I lived in Punjab through my childhood and adolescence. Since I was in Punjab, I was surrounded by Sikh people. Naturally, I also learned Punjabi during those years. Over the years, I gradually got more and more fascinated by the Sikh faith. I really liked the Sikhi ideas of equality and sharing with everyone regardless of their background. I would watch my neighbor tying his patka; I would watch another neighbor tying his turban, so t

    Ear cut from patka

    I am fourteen years old and I wear a patka. Since I play a lot of sports and hate when my hair comes out from my sideburns I tie my patka really tight. Recently, the skin behind my ears has gotten cut and hurt when I tie a patka. I don't want to tie the patka above the cuts because then other people will see them and I think I am crazy. I also don't want to wear a pag or anything. Please help. What should I do? My ears hurt really badly when I tie the patka every morning.
  6. I play cricket and I want to make my gutti smaller in my patka so the helmet will fit easier, how can I do this? squash it? but keep it in the normal style but just smaller?
  7. Hello, My question is what do you do if you are involved in a fight and your turban falls off , or the 'enemy' tries to rip it off? What would you ? Would you fight and dont care if your hair is seen? Take it off by yourself and wouldnt give him the chance to take it off? Run away? Please some serious thoughts - because this can happen everywhere and everytime . I mean if someone else sees your hair, what would you do/think/react?
  8. There's a new twitter page and website that started up a few days ago called @patkaspotting it's made to shame people who were patka's. The person who started this page said their intention is to promote people to wear dastaars instead of patka's. In my opinion I think this is very wrong and it can even be considered as cyber bullying because the people on this page don't give permission for their pictures to be used (a lot of them don't even know their picture is used). Does anyone else think this isn't right? The website is http://patkaspotting.com
  9. Hello, can anybody tell me how to tie a FIGHT PROOF dastaar for martial arts like kick boxing , thai boxing etc ... How do I tie it the best so it hardly get loose or fell off? Furthermore I would prefer to make thejura in the back , because if someone hits the joora , the pulling is too hard... Please some input and serious help.
  10. I was wondering if you guys knew a place to buy patkas online. All mine have ripped and only have 2 in my rotation for school! haha I tried contacting GoSikh because my measurements for my patka are 21x24 (I'll have to recheck but I believe this is correct) And most places make patkas that are square shaped. If anyone knows where I can buy some online could you post below. It's hard living in a city without a significant Sikh population. Thanks!
