waheguroo ji ka khalsa, waheguroo ji ki fateh.

i am being forced to change my dataar style (by my parents) because they think that a triangle type looks better on me...so after like four months of being lectured, i m finally giving in and the thing is...i kinda don't know how to make it perfect...help!

i wear a five meter chooti and five meter vaddi dastaar, mal mal kapra

i think the problem is that my chhoti dastaar is loose and my vaddi dastaar, i cant tuck in the top larr perfectly, some corners keep sticking out.

so can anyone help me, i wanna have perfect dastaar by the 13th...for Sikh turban day.

If thats your first try then you are doing AMAZING job.. It takes practice to have a perfect dumalla or turban. I think 7m is huge but it's normal size of what ppls use in Punjab. I wear peak style from 4m to 5m long turbey..

Also, in peak style turban, malmal is great but i think malmal kapra is really not recommended for Dumala, as dumala kapra needs to be rough ! (malmal means smooth, soft like silky thingy??)

Waheguru ji ka khalsa

Waheguru ji ki fateh jee

I am still new with this forum and thanks to guruji who brought me to this forum. I needed some information about dumalla. I want to learn by myself how to tie dumalla and if any of the veerji's or penji's can send me video or steps how to tie dumalla.

My parents not allowing me to tie dastaar and i only tie scaff now but however i want to learn and Mahraj ji kirpa kareh so that i could tie in future. i have tie dumalla before but somebody tie it for me and now i want to learn by myself.

May waheguru ji bless you all with His Naam Baani.

That was really really good for your first try, I think it would take me 50 tries to do that. But anyways here is the type of dastar I tie.

I might look just like a regular pagh, but its not, its really really stable, so stable that I cant even take it off if i tried, I have to unwrap it.

First I tie a patka underneath, and then you start out just like you would a regular pagh, but instead of taking the lar from your ear to the top of your head every time, you just take it to your other ear. so u just keep building up just like a round turban, I use the end of the first lar and tuck it in the back of my dastar, and that is what makes the back unmovable. So its like a round turban and pagh mix. Maybe I should get a patten on it. LOL.gif

I just realized how confusing I am no.gif , but i tried.

I am glad you liked it. :T:

The first lar goes from the top of my head to my left ear, then to my right ear, then when i am bringing the lar back to my left side I make a V shape but the rest is just round and round. The first lar is then tucked in the back making my dastar even more unmovable in the back, and the last lar is tucked in the front. I use 4 and a quarter yards. I fold it just like you would a pagh but i dont scrunch it, I roll it. If you fold the cloth like that, you will have a fat side and a thin side, make sure that the thin side is the part that is at the bottom and the fat side goes on top every time, so that u keep building up.

It is really easy to tie, very comfortable, and veryyyyyyyy stable.

Let me know how it goes.

:)

    • Is that this Baba Nand Singh ji? 
    • Just thought I would translate some of the highlighted parts from these snapshots.   -Sikhi is diminishing and very few practicing sikhs will remain in the future -There will come a time when over four new ideologies will emerge on a daily basis. Sikhs will jump from one ideology to the next. Be it Bhasauria, Radha-Soami, Kuka, Communist (as examples). -People will be easily lured away from their religion -Master Tara Singh is misleading the Sikhs, just like Gandhi. Also, we don’t call him Mahatama as he has no such quality. The people that are blindly following Gandhi and hoping for indepednece will lament one day and feel the British Raj was comparatively better. -These Topi waley will not let you [sikhs] cause any commotion (meaning they will suppress you) -Naam is becoming rare. Hold on to it for your survival. It will flourish one day in the future -Don’t align with any political party -With time, a great man will come who will, with his shakti (power) make these [Indian rulers] bow down. After this a long-lasting rule will start [of the Sikhs]. Gurmukhi letters will be supreme. The counting of 13 will commence [ I believe this refers to a benevolent social structure]. The Parkarma at Harmandir Sahib will be expanded 2 or 3 times its; current width [ hinting at a surge in new Sikhs]. Even the lighting lamp posts will be adorned in gold.
    • does anyone know about the prophecy about china and russia invading india?
