Singh ji, these problems always seem to come in this life. i just dont get why the world doesnt except that we are sikhs and we cannot take off our kirpan, end of.

but singh ji, i think that you should tie a small maybe 3 inch kirpan tied in you dastar. Ok, itll be gupt, meaning it cannot be taken out, defeating the purpose of a kirpan, but its the best thing you can do, other than quit your job, which you and me both know is terribly hard and painfull.

Keep it gupt singh, how can they ever know, unless the scan you.

Wear it in dumalla, gupt style, but remember where you position it for ease of access. You can get 4 inch to 5 inch ones that will still do the game if need be... Make sure the handle of it aint showing either otherwise they will ask you about it...

Wearing a symobolic one is useless. You end up kidding yourself for not being steadfast and not trying every means possible first.

I think a symbolic one in the chain is fine.

Then you might as well lose the actual kanga, add a little kara, a small kachera, and put some of your kes on the chain. It'll hold all 5 of your kakars...

Even I had this problem going to school. During gym class we had to change. So what a Singh suggested, was to take a small 2 or 3 inch Kirpan and place it in the first larr of my dastar. That way you can use it if needed, by pulling the larr up and pulling the Kirpan out. And it is gupt.
