How to tie a patka

Little Sikhs and the Sikh Coalition have released a new brochure with instructions on how to tie a patka, a typical turban for young Sikh boys. This would have been helpful for my kindergarten teacher, who, when my patka once came off while playing in class, had no idea how to retie it on my head.

My mother later gave a modified head covering to my teacher in case such an instance happened to me again, but I would imagine that such a brochure as above would have been much more useful to both my teacher and me.

Also, see the video “How to tie a patka” from Saffron Press and artist Keerat Kaur.
