How big should a male's kachhera be ideally ?

Recommended Posts

Guest Singh11

Nihung kachera (type worn with bana)

Length reaching knees. Aasan (middle part) length can be down to mid thighs

Width is normally double waist circumference.

Simple/Regular kachera (type for wearing at home, with jeans/trousers)

Big enough for comfort, and modesty.

A lot of men in india wear kachees LMAO   thats just wrong in many ways!   boys after a certain age should progress to kachas    but in india many men wear kachiya 

we used to have married guys from india living nxt door and they used have kachees drying on the washing line. 

I also dnt get why some men wear vests under their tshirts?  its not weird   but i just dnt get why?

What do u mean by width ? circumference of kachhera or just width of kachhera ? because circumference would be 2 times the width.

Yes I mean circumference. If your waist circumference was 34 inch then make the kachera circumference about 68 inch

Doubling it should give enough extra material to bunch up for modesty

Helps with soaking up sweat so it doesn't seep through into the shirt, and making an unsightly spectacle. Probably more useful in a hot climate where people start perspiring as soon as they step outside the front door. I don't think it's an issue in colder countries.

I have heard kachhera should cover the knee cap area and the leg hole should be narrow enough to not move any upper than the knee even when tried to pull up . And kachhera circumference should be 3 times the circumference of waist. is it true ?

Yes x3 circumference is fine. I only said x2 for a rough idea

You’re right it should go down to knee and be narrow not to get pulled too high. But most people wear ready made kacheras which fit badly. Probably because of low cost considering they can rip easily and need replacing soon.

With tailored kacheras, they can make it perfect. A good tailor will measure you and know how much extra to add

Btw I’m talking about kachera for bana/gatka. For daily at home you can buy cheap cotton kacheras a bit shorter like boxers. They are still stitched diagonally as kachera should be. Like this: http://www.khalsastore.com/Sikh-accessories/kachera?product_id=5173

    • I'm interested to know why they do havan too? People have been using fire in worship for 1000s of years, Native Americans, Zoroastrians, Pagans, Vedic traditions.  Wouldn't be surprised if the cave people, who used to light fires with stones, whatever their beliefs were probably used fire too.   As the only Singh in my family i get parents, uncles/aunts, cousins, neighbors asking me these of questions all the time! how the hell am i supposed to know! it's as if i all a sudden became an encyclopedia on Sikhi and have the answers for everything. A lady family friend came around once and asked me why people use instruments in Nagar kirtans?  "i don't know"   why do Sikhs in India do prabhat pheri? "i don't know"   one i get asked often is why nihungs cut goats heads off "i don't know". My cousin came around yesterday and asked me "oh why did that nihung cut the police mans hand off"   "i don't know" ! The worst is when some Singh does something stupid and theres a video being passed around, they all send me the video or ask me about it as if i have an answer or explanation for the stupidity, its as if your being held responsible for it!    Even the ancient North Indian festival of Lohri has a fire in the center of it. I read how in the Vedic period they used to do fire sacrifices with horses! how barbaric is that!   
    • I think you’d be better off asking Giani Thakur Singh Ji @Khaaik at the end of his youtube video on this bani. I have seen their contact number in many older videos but can’t remember exactly which ones though.
    • Do you mean the Ascending Masters by any chance?
    • How, where and when did your baba Ji meet Sant Ji? Was he young himself when he first met him?  It would be so nice to know his experiences with Sant Ji. 
    • Sant Ji was knower of everyone’s hearts and thoughts. He knew you were scared of speaking to your father about this, that’s why he made your father act the way he did, with his kirpa. It’s was a blessing really  when you think about it.
