I know this is an old thread but I really do believe Kachera should have nala in it. So many people wear elastic these days...I don't think u shud do tht!!

Also the nala is wrapped around ure waist and tied in a specific type of knot - its different to shoe lace knot....I'm sure a singh can like demostrate at one of the youth programes but basically u have ure long nala, u tighten it and wrap it around ure waist and bring the end bit through the loop of the knot....Also I think people shud treat kachera as underwear cos sometimes u see ppl wearing stuff under kachera.

Dear Surinderjit Bhai Sahib,

I guess you are asking how to tie a knot in the Nala (Drawstring) of your kacchera ?

Here are a couple of videos that show how to tie 2 simple knots - and probably more importantly how to untie the knot !!!.

Simple knot 1

Simple knot 2

http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=...11&hl=en-GB

There are a number of ways of tying - as 'sitargirl' has mentioned there is a method of tying a very secure knot , where after tying a knot the extra length of nala goes around the waist and is tied.

This needs a very long 'nala'.

The videos show just simple easy knots.

If you are asking how to actually wear a kacchera - you basically have the 'V' shaped end of the leg hole on your thigh - ie. move it so the 'v' is in the centre of the thigh and then gather the front (probably the folds you were thinking about) pull the nala and tie it. It basically comes together by itself - but it will take a while to get used to wearing . If your Kacchera isn't 'made to measure' - you may have some trouble as the 'V' also known as 'Brakan' won't stay in one place ( It may be too big (will give people an eyeful !!!) or too small (Be too tight to bend your knee or sit down)

It pays to have them made to measure - more comfortable (They don't move around ) and definately more decent as 'nothing' is on 'show' - if you get what I mean.

Anyway I've rambled on for too long now - I hope it made some sense and the vids are of some use.

I know people will be wetting themselves laughing at this description - but Hey not everyone knows how to tie a kacchera or even seen one !

Take Care

Freed

Wow cool videos....I think I tie a combination.......we always worn long nala's around the waist in our house.

My mum's family are nihangs so I am not sure if its cos of that...but yea I suppose it doesn't matter too much....u just need to have it tight so it doesn't fall and quick to untie so u don't wet ureself...I prefer wrapping around waist cos at least there are no bits falling out and less likely to get loose..

Gurfateh !

Was that of any use Surinderjit ji ?

Here is another vid it shows a 'Gora Sikh' - I don't like that term, very divisive - but I guess you have used it so I will just this once.

It shows the Singh wearing a kacchera - it proves my point about getting them made to your size - the 'Pauncha' or leghole is too big - it should sit comfortably with the V on the thigh and the front just touching the knee. It also seems as though the waistband is elasticated not with a nala.

I am not in any way dissing the Singh in the video - just using him as an example because I couldn't find any other pictures - as I have said it takes a while to get used to wearing kaccherey particularly if you are used to regular underwear. Wear them how you like - the reason for the tighter leghole is so you can wear them 'in Public' with a chola and not have any 'decency' issues .

Hope that helps

      OK so let me just fill you guys in on what the current situation is. Me and the wife wanted to do our bit so registered as volunteers with a couple of west london hospitals. So many people did the same there wasn't really anything immediate for us so I got in contact with a Director of one of the NHS Trust's I had done a session for and he arranged for the both of us to guard an entrance of a major university hospital ensuring only staff enter. The entrance is for an acute medical unit from where coronavirus patients are filtered from the Emergency Department and kept for a night or two while they are tested and then upstreamed to another dirty ward full of positive patients. We've been doing it for 3 days now and this is situation as it stands : 700 dead last night, about 579 the night before and 500 the day before that but in the hospital ED and Acute areas it is amazingly quiet. Not the scenes we're seeing on our screens from New York. Up on the intensive care wards and the wings of the hospital now dirty zones there are plenty of people dying but on the ground it is extremely quiet. Many that are tested positive and discharged home....either to die comfortably or recover...and the nurses are simply the most noble and bravest souls you will ever encounter. English, Filipino, Spanish and Portuguese........they know they either have it, have had it in the last few weeks or will get it....but they are in work en-masse. For me and you. Smiling and happy.  I'll tell you one thing;they are strict about the mask. Not for themselves but for you and me. They and the doctors told me that the mask is a psychological thing in that it can only help a tiny little bit when it comes to protecting you from coronavirus but it can help a hellava lot in stopping you from giving it to a vulnerable person. But....people are dying. It's just that they'e dying in quiet dignity up on the wards that they're supposed to die in. We're seeing none of this chaos down on the ground in A&E (Trauma - Emergency Room) and the Acute Units.  You know....I was on the phone with family in Canada just a few minutes ago trying to explain the situation. With them having a total of about 87 deaths in a country 30 times the size of England they couldn't get their heads around the fact that we have 700 deaths plus per 24 hours here in England. To them it was surreal. And it is surreal. What we're finding out about ourselves, our country and our national health service is surreal. I'll give you an example: I love talking to people and struck up a conversation with a Viroligist as she was coming out of the ward. The coffee shop in the hospital was giving free coffee and snacks to staff 24 hrs so we went for a coffee togther. This lovely Italian lady told me that any virus - such as this coronavirus - is as intelligent as us in that it wants to live....not die. I did explain on previous posts on this thread that it is mutating but she explained that it would eventually realise that it is not to it's benefit to consistently kill it's host (you and me). She said it will mutate into something that lets us live because that way it also gets to live. The coffee, by the way, was of really poor quality but I'll save that conversation for another day. So what did I lean since Wednesday ?  Well.....we read in the news about big corporations donating millions to the NHS but each day I was there there were no pizzas and gifts from the big multi-nationals. Each day I was there I witnessed local independent Pizza, Chicken and Kebab shops......drop of masses of boxes of food for free for the nurses. In some cases it would amount to an entire month's profit. Today, a local family owned florist and his family went round the entire wing of ED to give the most beautiful bunch of flowers you have ever seen to every nurse, cleaner, housekeeper or doctor. So what I learned these last few days is this: There is equity in love and death. Not in life...as my '$h1tt that white people do' thread constantly proves but there is equity in love and death.

    • Theres definitely a lot of problems In punjabi men and women   some deep rooted issues  and these filter down into the kids.    Theres a lot of bad parenting as well, especially among our parents generation.   They torment the kids.   Iv seen a lot of messed up cousin because their parents had issues and were bad parents.  I dnt know y they have these issues.  Alot of older punjabis seem emotionally imbalanced. My dad has some issues as well     hes really angry    he was horrible to us growing up.  I dnt know y people from that generation are like that 
    • Have absolute faith in guru nanak dev ji, my mums friends husband ran away with a pakistani woman  and my mums friend started crying before guru nanak dev ji and she asked him to help her from the bottom of her heart.   She then had a vision of guru nanak dev ji in her dream and guru sahib told her that she is doing the right thing and is on the right path and that her husband will come back. Few days later her husband came back. This happened here in the UK.  We often pray and do ardaas but have no faith.  We pray but in our minds we dont have faith and feel hopeless     we even try to convince ourselves that we have faith sometimes. Need to pray with full faith that waheguru will help us.  Praying with doubt in your heart doesnt work.    When a child asks his parent for something he asks with full faith that hes gnna get what he wants.  Waheguru is our father
