    RIGHT. And Sikhs have been wearing symbols of various regiments etc..plus netting to protect/camoglouge in war situations..plus the Punjab Police i think have various Bands with the ridiculous looking tufts hanging...etc etc..Many also wear various bands on dastaars...????

    Kirpan Gatras are also getting a lot of decorations....no more simple...more and more khadhaiyee..golden threads...etc etc...and of various matching colours with dastaar chola etc..especially by teh Ragi jathas..more perfromance oriented than Gurmatt..:}{}{}:
