    Tying turban: No tenuous tie this By Divya Sethi - Ldh Newsline
    Aug 13, 2005, 06:49

    A student teaches the traditional way of tying the turban to fellow youngsters

    Ludhiana,
    Dilpreet has a mission set for his life. In the present day when spikes, Salman Khan’s style of hair is becoming popular and youngsters are opting for different (read wierd) haircuts to look chic, this engineering student, is going out of his way to teach the art of turban tying to youngsters.

    Talking to Newsline, he said, ‘‘I felt that many youngsters are opting haircuts because they think they will make them look better. I wanted them to see that one can look good with a beautiful, smartly tied turban. The simple eight-metre cloth, wrapped properly on the head can really create magic.’’

    He also says, ‘‘I want to keep Sikhism and its traditions alive. This is just a step in this direction. I take only three minutes in tying the turban. This is what i’m teaching others as well, to show them that it is not a time consuming, cumbersome job.’’

    Dilpreet’s parents are, needless to say, very happy. His father, Major Singh, a businessman says, ‘‘These days, when children think of discotheques and fashion - with short, cropped hair or pony tails; we are happy that our son is thinking of culture and tradition and trying to keep that alive.’’

    Charanjit Singh, a BA-I year student at SCD Government College for Boys said, ‘‘Earlier I was clean shaven and had short hair, but when I met Dilpreet Singh through a common friend, I started visiting his class. His style of wearing the turban inculcated an interest in me, and today, I have grown my hair back and started wearing turban; thanks to him.’’

    Raman Sahib Singh, a BCA student, said, ‘‘I was insisting on a haircut but my parents would not hear of it, for we belong to a staunch Sikh family. Then I came across this person, and now I feel proud of having long hair. I have learnt how to tie the turban properly and look smart.’’ Another student Bhagwant Singh opines the same, for he says, ‘‘Although I am not perfect like Dilpreet, but I am fast moving towards perfection.’’

    This is a real question:

    Is there a technique for a one-handed person to tie a turban? A video would be most helpful.

    Surely many Sikhs have lost limbs in battle and have still managed to tie the turban properly.

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    Kudos to Dilpreet. The culture of keeping hair is a dying breed. i have visited Punjab many times but it seems that most of the youngsetrs do not keep hair anymore. Yet, the Gianis who come out of pUnjab, preach to us to keep hair and be true Sikhs.

    I think they should remain in PUnjab and tackle the issue in their homeland. I am not born and bred in Punjab but I do keep the turban and hair as I like being a Sikh and proud of our religion.

    The youngsters justify cutting hair by giving flimsy excuses like the weather is not conducive, it not cool to keep the turban, you can get more girls without the turban, that tying a turban is out of date. To me, the loss is theirs.

    At the rate things are going, Sikh culture may be in danger of being extinction in about 100 years.

    Hey that's great! It's great to hear that people my age actually take interest in religion rather than being like everyone else.

    was it salman khan that started that hair spike thing?? lol
