Chunniya over dastaara

Recommended Posts

Guest Daas

Daas has recently been told that women must wear chunniya over their dastaara as per maryada. Even when wearing bana.

Do not understand why, or if this is a common view. Shouldnt men and women wear hazooria with bana rather than chunniya?

Question may seen trivial but Daas would like some input.

I got told the same as I personally don't like wearing chunniya with bana (personal preference) but don't know if its maryada related; it could be or it could just be punjabi mentality? Maybe someone could give a definite answer :)

Don't know about maryada but women wearing Chunni or Dupatta look more graceful and feminine.

Without salwar kameez & chunni, girls are nothing but Tom Boys.

That is right which Marayda? My wife had the same problem with some old ladies. I supported her that she is fine wearing a distar with bana, a hajorria and no chuni. After a while everyone just went on their and had to accept.

I have never heard of this in maryada. Maybe you are following a specific jathebandhi?

As far as I know, in Guru's times the girls just wore a chunni. Except the chunni was of a thicker material and covered below the shoulders too. Kinda hard to describe, but they definitely were not like chuniyah of today. Too see-through and flimsy. Defeats the purpose.

Guest Some Distar Wali

Why did women wear Chuni over distar? You see the upper part of a woman is covered. To solve that problem women who do not want to wear chuni should be replaced with a hoojoria. This way an advantage to a woman they can do seva anytime. Then I ask you old traditionists why do your women wear jeans, or dress pants and shirts? Even in India girls and women who wear distar along with western clothing. Why do you Men wear western clothing? It seems we can not accept a woman not wearing a chuni over their distar is a problem at the Gurdwara or a religious function. You men don't have any offence for us to wear Western Clothing. Or some old mothers or sisters. Are you men or old mothers, afraid of us to look like Guru Gobind Singh's Daughters. Beat it Men and old Ladies you are losing your battle.

It doesnt really defeat the purpose if one is wearing a dastar... as their head is already covered and the chunni is just a meaningless accessory.

I don't know what maryada, someone told me hence I was confused. Looks like its nothing but cultural expectations!

Bibia should wear chuni to cover their upper chest, that is the purpose to cover part of body that men do not have, nothing to do with looking feminie or it being practical etc. You can see pics of Mai bhago ji wearing a chuni even in battle. In the Guru's time no bibi was ever seen witthout chuni.

you mean paintings right? paintings done by people who have not seen Mata Bhag Kaur in person. Those paintings can not be used as proof. Just as how we cannot just say the paintings of guru sahib do not predict thats how guru sahib looked like.

as per chuniyan over dastaran its only a punjbai mentality thing. you can wear the chuniyan just around your neck if you want. when wearing bana you body is already covered so there is nothing to worry about so hazoorya is perfectly fine.

Lol I doubt Mai Bhago wore a chuni in battle... it would have been gone within seconds.

I'm just confused. Guru ji gave us bana. Hazooria are used when doing seva and Singhs wear them with their bana but bibiya have to stick on a chuni instead to 1. look feminine or 2. cover their chest? I don't think Guru ji would have thought so...

    • I got to say Snatam Kaur does a good job in promoting bani though. 
    • It's better for certain types of blokes to give it a miss too. Or else they can end up facing serious charges, what with all that drink and all that stuff laying around to hurt someone with. lol
    • getting to the point where it's just best to go home after the Anand Karaj , the rest of the day gets spoilt by yobbish/slaggish behaviour by wannabe coconuts ...that's why I do.
    • sikhi was known in the west well before the multiple sex offender Yogi Harbhajan turned up on US soil, he tainted the image of sikhi by running a gangster organisation running mail fraud whilst starving and exhausting the followers into a suggestible state to donate their full workday and wages to the cause . He forcibly sterlised one woman, and made another have multiple abortions all the while raping others , such a saintly soul, you can read the transcript of one court case online. the response of the current runner of sikhnet is to paint the victims as mad, vengeful, evil women and stop them from even talking about the truth anywhere.
    • 1. the news is lifted from indian and other diaspora desi run agencies so nothing involving their effort other than cut paste 2. sikiwiki is their number one weapon after their cut paste distorted translations of gurbani  to insert false info and doubts against sikhi 3. the 3HO er who 'made' the translations of gurbani did not know gurbani fully before being tasked by yogi  to present his 'translations which was actually repackaged work of desi Sikhs of yesteryear. 4. every fb post, mention of sikhnet is accompanied by a link which goes through a barrage of subsciption or money demands which are obnoxious and make people think that all sikhs are like that ...moneygrubbers which is not true. 5. most of the kirtan is uploaded from other sites too , I guess that is their MO zero effort max profiteering 6. Desi sikhs should investigate their operations and clarify to foreign official government departments that they do not speak for sikhs everywhere , in fact, US sikhs have protested against Indian Govt agents hosted by these bheki folks.
