Good going friend !!

Try 'Dastar' after you start feeling comfortable...it will compliment your personality more !!
I have double patti dastaar thanks to the kind donation of Arvind-ji and waheguru di kirpa hai.

i'm having trouble tying it so i will wait a few more years and ask someone at Gurdwara to help, if they have time, or take a "turban tying ceremony", etc.

also check out the videos on sikhnet: How to Tie a Turban (Sikh/Sikhism Styles). this is how i learned to tie my dastaar. :) it just takes a little practice, you should be doing great in no time.

also, if you want to try different lenghths and styles you can buy turban fabric at any fabric store in the US, it's called "cotton voile". experiment and practice until you find your perfect fit! :)

Hai Rabba, enna sohna munda,
Mein varri java, mein sadkey java.
Dhan teri sikhi, dhan teri kamaye.

Congrats to you, Sherab.
Waheguru is great.
