Colour Of Dastaar/Dhumalla

Recommended Posts

Gurfateh ji,

I am looking for the really deep blue that Nihung Singh's wear.

I buy dastaars online (UK) but the colour fades quick and two dastaars are never the same shade when newly ordered.

I came across an online store in Panjab with the colour 'tohra'. The pic is a deep blue but pics are pics.

Has anyone heard of this shade of blue?

I was gifted the blue I want/talking about (really deep blue almost purple tint) years ago and use it as a keski. The colour hasn't faded in 7 years of use and washing (f74 malmal).

Anyone help?

Thank you ji

Akaal!

you could buy uncoloured bolt and dye it to your dastar colour using fast dyes made out here in the west, some even can even be done in the washing machine

"Tohra" is just a shorthand that some shopkeepers (and some turban-wearers) use to describe the color of turban that the longtime President of the SGPC, Gurcharan Singh Tohra, used to wear. Something like this:

Avtar Singh (Makker) and other old-time Akali Dal members wore the same color.

What SGPC and their sevadaars wear is Royal Blue (Bright Blue).

Traditional Khalsa Blue has been Navy Blue (Dark Blue/ਸੁਰਮਈ).

    • Yh that was another thing!  Some bhamans 14 yr old son died and they came to rams court asking him to make the boy alive again, ram then asked his council of rishis what to do and one of the rishis said that the boy has died because a shudra is going tapasya somewhere. The rishis said that in tret yuga that only a bhaman and ksyathria can carry out religious duties.  Because a shudra is doing tapasya it has created imbalance and it is the kings duty to sort the imbalance out.   So ram went on a mission looking for a shudra doing tapasya    and in the south country he came across a man hanging upside down on a tree meditating. Initially ram was impressed and asked him what he is trying to attain and the guy said that hes trying to attain the solar system and heavens,  then ram asked him what caste he belongs too,  the guy said he is a shudra, ram then realized this is the shudra that hes looking for and he took out his sword and cut his head off!   All the demi gods then started showering ram with flower petals. By killing the shudra the bhamans son came alive and the balance was restored again!  I have to say rams justice was all over the place in ramayan !   Ramayan happened in treta yug and the rishis in it say that in the current treta yug society was divided into 4 social orders by manu, the same guy who wrote the horrific manusmriti, and that in this yug the khsaytriyas have joined the bhamans in carrying out religious duties, and that kalyug will be the dark ages and that even the shudra will join in worship.   It's still a interesting read though lol!  Judging by rams tantrums and emotional breakdowns he definitely was not perfect.  I prefer lakshman and hanumans characters.  Poor sita is just depressed throughout the whole thing!  If ramayan is truthful to what treta yug was like then people definitely had ego and anger problems and were very lustful.   Promises were respected though and people stuck to their word! Elders were still respected as well. friendships especially brotherhood is really strong as well. People also did a lot of charity ...  Marriage was not respected though they all cheating on each other lol  a lot of promiscuous characters 
    • definitely a murderer he killed shudar for doing tapsaya, maybe that's why RSS love him so , he attacks foreigners and lowcaste people
    • It could very well be that Hindus see Rama as a flawed individual who had to overcome all his faults.
