Basics Concerning A Blue Turban

By Cathy Mercer

People choose to tie a blue turban for many reasons. The reasons may be personal or may be based on religious beliefs of the individual. All the same, blue as a color for a turban bears different meanings in different religious groups such as the Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs among others. Those who adhere to the teachings of their religion understand the meanings that different colors bear.

This article however, outlines general facts about bulles among wearers. Although the colors individually hold different meanings, there are general meanings, which turbans hold regardless of the color. Among Sikhs, turbans are a unique and strong identifier for their religion. Sikhs identify themselves all over the world by wrapping turbans also called Punjabis, dastars, paggs, pagri, or bulles depending on the place.

Sikh men and women find comfort and safety in relating with other turbaned people regardless of their origin or kind. In the past when there was war, women especially from the Sikh society trusted and helped turbaned men by providing them with food, water, and shelter. They did this because they knew that by wearing a dastar, it shows that one is a helper and a defender of the weak in society.

Turbans also confirm that one is morally upright and nicely behaved. The headwear are a symbolism of holiness and/or spirituality of the wearers. As so, followers who observe the teachings of Sikhism by wrapping punjabis at all times receive respect and honor from others in the community. Dedicated males and females who serve the Sikh society and other members of society are also awarded with punjabis as an appreciation.

Religious leaders among Hindus, Sikhs, and Muslims also wear bulles to symbolize spirituality and holiness. In Sikhism, outgoing Gurus are handed turbans to the incoming ones as a manner of handing responsibility over. The new Gurus are expected to apply the responsibility they are accorded to lead followers in the way of the religion. This shows that these headwear are also a sign for responsibility among the wearers.

Blue dastars are a clear identifier for Sikhism. Since many individuals do not fancy identifying plainly as Sikhs when in company of non dastar wearers because they fear stigmatization, wearing the headband is a symbol of confidence and courage. The virtue is also strengthened by the incidents of second world war where turban wearers moved into battlefields without safety helmets. This showed their courage, confidence, and lack of fear for death.

Currently, all people in the society are at liberty of tying a pagri in whatever style they want. This is different from some times back when only men were allowed to do so. This indicates how the Sikh religion is gender sensitive and supports equality between the two genders. Most women however choose to wrap their heads with a certain traditional headscarf meant for women.

Blue turban may be bought from any beauty store all over the globe. The internet may be of assistance in identifying latest designs and styles on the market. The price of a pagg is not as exorbitant either and the procedure of tying may be mastered easily with enough practice.
