    May the turban be forsooth,
    May the turban be truth,
    May the material be kind,
    May the colouring be mind ,
    May the folds be faith,
    May the point be safe,
    May the style be seen,
    May the mirror be clean,
    May the tying be internal,
    May the turban be eternal.

    To wear a turban forsooth,
    May the turban be truth,

    May the material be kind,
    May the colouring be mind ,

    May the folds be faith.

    May the style be seen,
    May the mirror be clean,

    May the tying be diurnal,
    May the turban be eternal.

    Harry Veera There is is no you or me ,there is just us!

    I started tying one at 21 dealt with loads of racist comments as I lived in the Rhondda including attack by skin heads.But my eyes did not wear one nor my mind.When I was thirty I lost the physical aspect.
    I always wear it now ,but it covers my eyes,it is just that it is invisable in colour.

    But when there is grace ,maybe I will wear the real one ,as you wish to.

    Now look sinnerji there is only one person I will tolerate such replies from, and that is Bhagasinghji!

    I am due for a haircut, but I have been putting it off now for 2 months, I would hope to take on turban facilities within the 12 months, how about you?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
