Probably has an older provenance? 

I believe so. I just find it interesting how it kinda just died out. It's like if the modern dumalla died out. I've actually seen some pictures of Nihangs wearing that specific dastar but I would have to do some digging to find them again.

I only see them now as western museum pieces. I think all the chakars and mini shastars in them made them into sort of defensive helmets. Is it worth nihangs wearing them if they aren't going to war? Plus war is so different now.

Would you believe it! There’s a growing fashion trend in UK since last 10 years where teenage boys and young guys with kesh tie their hair back and wear a patka or african ‘durag’. They feel ashamed even to be seen with a joora on their heads. 

Meanwhile in Punjab (from what I see via social media) it’s rare to see an older teenager wearing patka. By age 14 onwards boys are tying really beautiful dastar or dumala. 

I think the flat over the forehead looks a thousand times better than the v over the forehead myself. 

 

I think this one could even take a gandasa to the head. Notice the detail of the bagh nakh. You could head butt someone with that and disorientate them enough to finish off.

You see loads of guys like that in Uni. I feel like people don't realize that there are easier and quick dastars to tie on. Personally, the Misl era one only takes one piece of material and like 4-5 larhs max.

Thanks for sharing  the artwork @dallysingh101 It's fascinating to see how the dress of women has evolved, and contrasts with popular perceptions in present day jathas. Honest engagement with history really helps to chart the future.

Yeah, it seems we got more and more prudish post 'annexation'. Fast forward to now and we'd even give deeply suppressed victorians a run for their money in prudery.

    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway. 
    • Because Naamdharis are absolute masters at kirtan. Simple. On the topic of Akal Takht, it doesn't really hold the same authority as it did in the past. Just look at the people running it and you'll get what I mean. Most the panth, outside of stuff like Tankhaya, don't care about anything they have to say.
