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

      where did you read about Harrappa? from a book written by a "white man"  and who started the excavation of Harrappa?  "white man". he didn't try and destroy either. again you are including blacks?  why?  what about chinese, arabs, native americans etc?  why are you so fixated with blacks?  your whole view-point is a black one.   and where are the beautiful buildings in africa and jamaica?

      this is not true.  very famous/popular historians like Will and Ariel Durrant openly wrote about your first point.  most of you wouldn't even know about e.g. the concept of zero if it were not from their history/research. the ancient greeks were eager to learn and learnt form other cultures.  the modern european civilisation also did this.  it was no secret,  tolstoy acknowledged buddhism, schopenhauer acknowledged indian philosophy, goethe openly admired kalidasa.  they did not make any secret of this. yes europeans picked up greek, roman stuff in the renaissance and carried it through.  but they did not steal it.  francis bacon did not accept the learned greek methods, he thought out empiricism, which formed the basis of modern science.  the mathematics of euclid was rethought by russian mathematicians, which einstein used in the theory of relativity (not the euclidean gemoetry). learning from someone is not "stealing".  taking investigation further is not "stealing". what made the most wealthy parts of asia wealthy- china, india, japan- is that they were willing to learn from west.   e.g. japan didn't steal western civilisation after ww2.   again what is "what the white man has done".  and "our knowledge".  very petty way of thinking.  
    • I think this is due to the big improvement of regional cinema industries. I remember watching punjabi movies 10-15 years ago. They were very inferior to bollywood movies. In terms of story lines, special affects and general quality of production. This was understandable though as Punjabi cinema was just starting to come good and was not well fincanced .Many of the early punjabi films were just about some macho punjabi guy acting like a gangster with big mucha lol. I think those days are gone we are now seeing some good story lines and productions instead of those stereo typical films that were made in the 80's and 90's. Poeple can relate more to their own cultual language films more then the hindi type nonsence films. That glorify khans and muslims.Punjabi films can promote Sikhism and Punjabi language and do much good for punjab and punjabis by making good moral films to adsress alcohol and other issues affecting us. What we need is better actors, directors and producers to steer punjabi cinema to a bright future. Maybe it can become a global force? Tamil film industry is huge and they do good at promoting their language, culture and faith.

      wjkk wjkf Even the wife of Bhai saab Bhai Rai Jodh jee (a Muslim Rajput warrior who assisted Sixth Master in a battle) was a Sikh. Daas is not sure if he and his other family members became Sikhs or not. The grandsons (Bhai Lakhmir jee and Bhai Shamir jee) of Bhai Rai Jodh jee stayed loyal to the Gurughar and helped Sri Satguru jee (Tenth Master).   Bhul chuk maaf
    • i was just saying that they have created some of the most beautiful architecture and art work   even if the ideas were stolen.  Raphael, michaelangelo etc are some of the greatest artists ever
