  1. Do Sikh surgeons or anaesthetist remove or cover their turban before entering the operation theatre??
  2. Please can someone help me. what turban material do Nishkam Sevak Jatha singhs wear - it’s a Kenya style turban but they wear it mostly in white. i have tried full voile and rubia in the past but it does not come out or look as good as how they wear it. can someone help. I have attached an image also.
  3. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, I am leaving for the U.S Army in the next month (basic training for 10 weeks at a fort where I will be cut off from the rest of the world). So I wanted some tips on how to keep practicing Sikhi in an environment that is not so conducive to it. I'm having paperwork done to get the religious accommodation to keep my kes, dari and wear a dastaar. So that exception will be made (which is my biggest relief) but I have so many other questions! I would really appreciate the help from anyone but especially those who have been through the military or ar
  4. Even if one reasons he did something wrong to deserve a beating, I don't see a justification to remove his turban and drag by Kes. But I see its increasingly becoming common in arguments, that sikh guy's turban is removed from head, which honestly as we all turbaned men can agree is akin to stripping someone naked.
  5. 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
  6. 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

    How to fix parna

    I am 14 and i've started tying my parna, but i can't stop my joorah from sticking out. I've tried arranging my hair in different ways but those ways often fall apart or just don't work (like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9R2waCxBZd8) my hair is too short for the final knot, it goes down to my waist and i'm 5'5. What can i do to stop my joorah from sticking out of my parna
  9. For those who tie the kenyan style turban, do you always iron your pagh after folding it, or do you just tie it after ironing ? I have never really ever ironed it, I just tie it after folding it. Have you ever done both ? Does it make a difference ? Also I wonder, how long do you tie that pagh until you change it ?
  10. I was wondering does anyone know how to tie a comfortable round turban that is like a dhumalla, but not really a dhumalla. I tie the folded uk pagh but looks more like sgpc pagh because it has more larhs ( 6 to 7) . I kind of want to stay away from the pagh, everyone thinks I look too desi, and its big in size I am not amritdhari, but wish to one day. I don't want to wear a nokh pagh because i really hate it ( physically because its uncomfortable, and also i don't resonate with the design). I have also lost of hair due to health reasons. I looked online for dhumallas, but they all have b
  11. "it is impossible to wear any garment without transmitting social signals. Every costume tells a story, often a very subtle one, about its wearer" - Desmond Morris Yesterday, I posted a new thread here on this forum. Don't go looking for it because you won't find it. The MODS haven't allowed you to read it. Either they think you're not intelligent enough to understand it and where I was going with it or they themselves were not. Nobody can say for sure. Although my money's on the Mods.The object of that thread that never came to fruit was to challenge our perceptions and how race and clas
  12. On eBay my good friend sikhonlinestore from UK is selling 5-ring chakar. As we know many kara are sold in 2,5,7,9,etc rings but I was wondering if anyone saw chakar in 9 rings for sale anywhere. I am very curious if such things exist.
  13. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Does anyone know how to tie a Puratan style Dastar, the same type of style that Guru Gobind Singh Ji or Guru Hargobind Ji wore?
  14. Just come across it, so not watched it yet https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09zcvct/my-turban-and-me : Documentary exploring Sikh identity in modern Britain. Actor and comedian Sanjeev Kohli goes on a heartwarming personal journey to explore the importance of wearing the Sikh turban in Britain and investigate why it is becoming more popular. Sanjeev, most famous for his role as Navid in the BBC1 comedy Still Game, comes from a proud Sikh heritage, but is the only male member of his family not to wear the turban and sees this journey as a reconnection with the Sikh communit
  15. As a non- Sikh Caucasian I am extremely curious (and cautious) as to what you guys think about the fact of non-Sikh (regardless of race) wearing turban type headwraps. I've always adored the headwraps/ turbans that I have seen people wearing around the city, and had always wondered what it would be like to wear them.
  16. 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

    Dumalla and Ears

    WJKK WJKF My dumalla has been causing me issues ever since i started wearing it. My dumalla consists of a bunga (does not cover my ear), then the Keski (does not cover my ear), then the actual dumalla (final piece, does cover my ears) Throughout the day of wearing it would start to sting my ears. I then lift up the part that is covering my ears and then people would say it is very red and has a cut. I would prefer to keep my turban on my ears since it becomes more stable. WJKK WJKF
  18. The Muslims and Hindus have largely abandoned wearing the turban in India. It has become a Sikh icon, so all Sikhs should proudly wear it.
  19. WGJKK WGJKF Hello, I am coming here for honest opinions. I feel the members of my gurdwara would feel uncomfortable speaking openly about this subject, and I don't wish to make them uncomfortable as I haven't been studying long. I am a 25 year old white American who is very interested in Sikhi. I have only recently begun my path of discovery, and would want to spend an absolute minimum of one year (probably longer) meditating, reading gurbani, doing seva, and properly understanding Sikh philosophy before concerning myself with the five K's. However, I do feel I will eventually get to the p
  20. Question is, how do/ would you feel if and when others pat down your turbans at airport for security? Would you... 1. Insist on them using swab/ wand 2. Let them touch but feel humiliated (request number 1 failed) 3. Let them pat down but think nothing of it?
  21. 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

    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...
