Singhs Tying their Jooras at the Backs of Their Heads and Wearing Bandanas


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've noticed a disturbing new fashion trend among young singhs.

It used to annoy me when I'd see young singhs with substantial dharis wearing patkas instead of proper pags. I don't get it. I think a patka with a beard looks sloppy, childish, and embarrassing. But many young men think a proper pagri makes them stand out more and wearing a patka helps them slip under the radar.

Now, many young men have taken it a step further. Patkas still make it a bit difficult to "hide" since the joora is sticking out on top. So the latest "innovation" is to tie the joora at the back of the head and then cover the head with a bandana.

This is just embarrassing.

Why are young Sikh men so ashamed of the traditional Sikh appearance? They'd rather look like a random guy with a dhari wearing a bandana than look like proper Singh.

In Punjab, men used to wear turbans with pride. A man's turban was his crown. Sikhs took pride in being recognizable rather than being able to go unnoticed.

It's sad to see young men so desperate to look like anything but a Singh. Who will respect the dastar when the very men who should wear it with pride run away from it?

Does anyone know where, when and why this trend started? What can we do to instill some pride in the youth?

This isn't new. I know my cousin has been doing this for at least ten years but he's into the entire "gangsta" scene and runs around with gold chains, gold rings, shaved bits of eyebrows etc. But I agree it's more noticeable nowadays.

I tried it once, felt like an <banned word filter activated> and put my turban back on.

In Canada you see it everywhere now. All over these guys have their patkas tied durag style and have fitted caps on top.

From what I've seen, most of these guys are wanna be gangsters. Just yesterday I saw a singh, if you can call him that, wearing a durag style patka, smoking next to his car with the speakers blasting music.

He was very cool......

It's been happening for a long time in India, especially in places like Delhi and Panjab. They actually wear a cap over the bandana. Very strange.

I saw it myself last summer in Delhi. You can't even tell if the dude is a Sardar or a Muslim. Getting funny looks from Hindus when I had a dumalla on was expected, but it was interesting to get them from these "Sardars" too. Or maybe its just me, outright ugly! :D

Hmm ... I was aware that there were Singhs wearing patkas and sometimes covering them with caps (usually the "urban" Sikhs in Delhi ... Sikhs living in rural areas would get ridiculed for dressing like that)

However, I did not know that they wore their jooras at the back

It's not just wanna-be gangsters now!

I've lots of Singhs who don't portray themselves as gangsters at all dressed like that, especially in England!
