Wearing A Kalgi On Dastar?

Recommended Posts

Sat Sri Akal,

Sadh Sangat jee, I have a question that I wanted an answer to..

I am a Hindu from Punjab. So please pardon my ignorance.

I just wanted to know if Wearing a Kalgi is prohibted to all.

I know that in Hindu weddings the Kalgi is worn. But in Sikh weddings it is not. Because there is no one as great as Kalgidhar Dasmesh Pita Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

Does this apply just to the weddings or in general aswell.

It's not explicitly in the Rehat; however, only royalty or those trying to show some royalty wear a Kalgi. When we go to Guru Sahib we must be humble and have Nirmatta. I assume Ranjit Singh would wear a kalgi; however, it is very likely he would take the Kalgi off by just the sight of Guru Sahib. Some Sikhs are also not interested in wearing a kalgi because it just doesn't seem practical when going around our Guru that we should be engaged in showing how high we are.

I suppose you can wear a kalgi outside the Gurdwara day-to-day if you want, although honestly you'll look like a bit of a bellend, especially when you're pairing it with jeans and tracksuits

I don't know why you'd want to wear one in the first place though. The Kalgi is a symbol of sovereignty and I'm guessing you're not a sovereign of anything.

True it is a sign of royalty. Some buffoons forget to remove it when they enter Guru Sahibs Darbar on their wedding day, I suppose the fault lies with the ignorant people guiding them. As has been said already, why wear one anyway.

    • The fact that this guy threw away his political career in order to marry her is example number 72,602,308 of how desperate singhs have become. (If you want to call this "trim singh" a "singh".) How thirsty and pathetic can one be? I have noticed a trend of somewhat successful singhs gladly settling down with women who few other people want (because of a tarnished reputation, or because they are way past their "sell-by" date, etc.). Usually, when these women were younger and in demand, they would have never considered a singh. But after it becomes obvious that they are struggling to settle down (because of their various issues) and are getting old, they are happy to settle for a simp with a pagh as long as he has some status/money.   This Bola guy probably thought to himself: "I wear a turban (and can't do a decent job tying it), and I am overweight and kind of ugly. But somehow a girl is talking to me! Isn't this amazing?! I should marry her!! Who cares if it kills my career? It will totally be worth it!!!"
    • 1. She looks much worse these days with her hair cut shorter 2. This whole story is really depressing. THREE thirsty Singhs basically had their lives ended or ruined. THREE thirsty Singhs. The real story is how desperate many Singhs are. I can't decide which of the three Singhs in the story is the most pathetic. 3. I'm not sure what to believe, but it seems like a real tragedy in any case 4. There is no excusing the behavior of Gagandip Singh and Harinder Shoker. But is it wrong to point out that they probably wouldn't have sunk to such depths if they weren't so thirsty and desperate for women? It reminds me of those stories of incel white kids going crazy and killing people. 
    • Probably people who live in areas with relatively large numbers of Sikhs (near a major gurdwara, for instance). But in general, I'd say educated whites are the most likely to have an awareness of Sikhs.
    • No (unless they live near the White Sikh headquarters in New Mexico).   While Sikhs are a tiny minority compared to Punjabi Sikhs. Most of the white Sikhs are people who were hippies in the 60s and 70s when eastern spirituality was a big thing and they somehow came into contact with "yogi" Harbhajan Singh or other white Sikhs. As far as I am aware, white Sikhs are not really passing Sikhi on successfully to their children/grandchildren. Once that old generation is gone, white Sikhs will probably have an even more negligible presence.
