Dastar / keski

Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh ji

I'm kesdhari, male. I wear a dastar. I was wondering, can men wear a keski in place of a dastar too? Like many women do. Sometimes I wear a keski around the house or if I'm having a lazy day and aren't going out or expecting company. Just wondered where we stand on this...

Bro a keshki is a dastaar , it can big or small, besides we're supposed to try wearing two thus dumalla ... Most of my family members at home when relaxing will wear the chotti dastar/keshki  which is underdastaar of their dumalla . I tend to wear my smaller one when doing workouts , sleeping  etc . 

BTW a patka is no way a valid swapout if you are wearing  a dastaar.

You can wear a Keski at home, but keep the patkas at home if you can. It's meant to protect Kesh.

It all depends on the length and fabric of your dastaar. You can wear a shorter dastaar indoors but it's always better to wear a longer one outdoors.

    • There's 12 year-old boys driving cars in some parts of Punjab. It's been going on for ages. It's not widespread but it happens. I'm impressed yet horrified at the same time. 
    • Driving lesson in Punjab LOL. The guy driving is a Punjabi driving instructor from Wolverhampton, he does mock test videos on youtube.      This driving lesson and test took place in Phagwara.     
    • nice little bit of history, The Times 1841 mentions Maharani Chand Kaur becoming the queen.    Chand Kaur was the wife of Maharaja Kharak Singh. A few hours after Kharak Singh died their son Nau Nihal Singh, next in line to become Maharaja also died. The whole thing most likely was a planned murder, Kharak Singh was poisoned while Nau Nihal Singh was murdered. It most likely was planned by the dogras, other families that opposed Ranjit Singh and probabaly some of Maharaja Sher Singhs men as well.  Soon after Nau Nihal Singh died Sher Singh proclaimed himself Maharaja, Chand Kaur the widow of Kharak Singh and mother Nau Nihal Singh challenged Sher Singh with the claim that her dead son Nau Nihal Singhs wife Sahib Kaur is expecting a baby and till the baby is not born she will sit on the throne, therefore Maharani Chand Kaur sat on the throne in Lahore. Brave woman for standing up to the giants of the Sikh empire! She also managed to get a big % of the Sikh army on her side.  Tragically when Sahib Kaur did give birth it was a still born baby. Maharaja Sher Singh then did not wait any longer when he heard of the still birth and marched with his troops towards Lahore fort. Chand Kaur refused to give up her title and the city broke into civil war. Massive parts of the city were blown up and the number of casualties was very high. Eventually Chand Kaur and her forces had no choice but to surrender and leave Lahore fort. Sher Singh then became Maharaja. Chand Kaur then retired and started living in her sons haveli in Lahore but was still seen as a threat and was beaten to death in the haveli.  The Times 1841 mentioning Chand Kaur becoming queen.
