After an increase in hate crime here is is an opportunity to look at Diversity, Difference, R.E, Citizenship, History, PHSE, Values & understanding each other much more.

For the 1st time in Plymouth and history Chaz Singh will be showing members of the public how he ties his Turban on You FREE. Wife Saranjit Kaur will be tying the female version on women. Here is a unique opportunity to experience the Turban and learn who the Sikhs are. The project is supported by the Drake Foundation, Plymouth City Council and Midland Langar Sewa Society.

The Sikh Turban is an article of faith that represents Spirituality,Sovereignty, Self-Respect, Honor,& Piety. The Turban, or “Dastar,” or “Pagri,” often shortened to “Pagg,” are various names for the same article. The Sikh Turban is called Dastaar (ਦਸਤਾਰ), which is a more respectful word in Punjabi for the turban. All these words refer to the piece of cloth worn by both men and women to cover their heads. It is a long piece of cloth wrapped around the head fold by fold and tied daily.Traditionally in India, the turban was only worn by higher society. Whereas, people of low status, were not allowed, or could not even afford to wear a turban. The Turban is closely associated with Sikhism since the very beginning from 1469.
