"England Style" Turban

Recommended Posts

there's no concept of length as such, buy a standard 5 metre and if necessary cut off any excess, for the Kenyan style dastaar if you also want it to be compact keep a maximum of 5 lar.

Thanks. Should it be double patti, like the patiala shahi that most Punjabis wear, or single?

There is no rule book that says patiala shahi has to be 7 meters or englandee shahi has to be 4 meters. A patiala shahi can be 5.5 meters and look just as big as a 7 meter pagh.

Just make it as long as you want to or can tie. When I first started to learn triangular pagh i got 5.5 meter cloth. After I mastered that I felt I wanted to make it a bit bigger and got 7+ meters. If you want to tie englandee shahi would you fold it like jusreign does in the video or get it so you can do a pooni?

Hmm ... I see what you mean.

So should it definitely be folded as jusreign does it, or does some people tie the England pag after doing pooni the same way they'd do for the patiala shahi?

Oh, and should the cloth be double patti or single?

Depends on how you want your pagh to look really. Double patti is oldskool, i dont think its as popular with the younger crowd.

Im not familiar with patiala shai styles or terms likem double pooni etc.. Basically the typical UK modified design based on Kenyan/East African dastaar involves strecthing out the material length ways, 1 person each side..keep the material stretched, fold in half length ways, fold in half again, then fold 1/3 from one side and the 2/3 on top. This can be amended depending on how wide you want your larrs.

You'll end up with 5/6 metre lenggh of flat folded material about 5 inches wide then you can start tying starting from left side of your head first lar goes over the top of your head,and you work your way down. Difficult to describe someone needs to make a youtube video

    • Stand for righteousness yes. Only thing we can do is neutrally speak out against injustices against innocents when we see them not be partisan in our approach. In practical sense different times different era's different approach is needed. Sikhs need to learn to adapt or get vanished for their petty virtue signalling. End of the day try wielding a kirpan against an evil doer and you'll be arrested and in jail faster than you can put it away. The Sikhs of era we are inspired by were sovereign sikhs in their own area of control and laws and rules. If we try to be wonna be modern day sant saphi's mowing down every rioter or criminal we come across we'll just get rolled over by the state and its own huge numbers of modern weaponised fully armed personnel. The so called khalsa warriors of today are not able to match even a tiny percentage of the calibre of purataan Sikhs of era's past nor modern day warriors of 1980s/90s. We learn't the hard way how real world politics works and which communities had our back, which we found out were none.  
    • It goes under a lot of names. Imperialism is a sickness of those who were always sick. Don't let it make you ill. 
    • That was written by some who was against the Nazis and it was a warning for people not to be complacent to the threat of a totalitarian, fascist ideology.... which in the modern world goes by the name of the religion of 'peace' 
    • Bloodshed happen Again.  Did not certain jathas hide during blue star?  Each with their own list of wrongs or reasons? Weren't the great Shaheeds, Sants, and Sadars of the past known for their rightousness period? These types of actions can not be allowed ever against any or they will consume us all. 
    • this is what I am thinking they, the BJP have already attacked and removed sikhs from their paid for and cultivated land and businesses of decades if not century whereever they have got in , Rajasthan , Gujarat etc  the amount of robbery and looting is in the ten of CRodes but these guys somehow staying quiet they will be spared of a similar fate to Jains and Buddhists , its just a matter of time . If people don't fight this law change on a whim , they will revoke sikhs citixenship too ...in fact the RSS mouthpieces have hinted similar bloodshed for us is waiting .
