puratan kachere arent pure brilliant white aided by our good fried chlorine based bleaches,

they were made of khaddar and were generally light brown or cream in colour

Cotton fibre is generally white.

Shastr - just ask around when you get there, the best bet is at a Taksal or Nihang Chauni.

WAHEGURUJIKAKHALSAWAHEGURUJIKEFATEH.

Go to a darzee (tailor) near a large Gurdwara Sahib , they have better knowledge of Sikhi Kacheras.

I thought only Akalis wore kacherai past their knees, could anyone enlighten regarding this maryada for Akali Singhs.

Thanks.

ive never heard of kasheras going past knees. if they did they would be more restricitve in movement and a problem in jang.

The front part of the opening of the kachera should dip just onto the knee, whilst the back should not go past the khuchh of the knee, never past the knee as it restricts movement like chatanga stated. I normally get mine made in Phagwara.

Do you recall the name of the shop in Phagwara?

Also, on a related topic, where can you get good quality Cholay (Taksali and Nihang) and gatray made from?

The other reason why it shouldn't go below the knee is that it then becomes a salwaar - a pathani/ muslim trouser. About half way down (or just a bit more than half way) the knee cap is ideal.

It's pretty clear that it's not about what we wear on the outside but about the mind. Bani clearly says this. But Bani also tell us if you want to play the game of love, then come to me with your head on the palm of your hand. This means when Guru ji tells us that we must keep kachera ang sang as one of the kakaars, our only appropriate response is sat bachan. Gurbani also tells us that through our own efforts we can never succeed, ultimately it is with Guru ji's grace that we can succeed. It's quite clear that those who obey the Guru's teachings, those who come to Him with their head on the palm of their hands, will be in a far better position to receive that grace.

Anybody know any place to get proper kachera made near Jagroan? or Ludhiana?

Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh

do you know if anyone has posted the cutting and sewing instruction on youtube for these kachherey as I can sew rav rectangular ones from scratch but I need to learn this style to be able to make and teach next generation of my family (my Mum taught me when I was a young teenager). I would love to teach these to my boys and girl.

I think it looks like the rav vali kacherey I know but is cut with triangular nafa line , are there closeup photos available ? I could then work out myself what it method and write it up . Singhs and Singhnian should know how to construct these themselves , never know what tomorrow will bring .

Yah, when young we all 5brothers used to tailor kachera ourselves, its not much difficult. But fir now I rely on Brethern from AKJ. They make really good ones, available at all their functions.We in punjab wear the size just above knees while rhose at hazoor sahib(nanded) and Patna sahib wear the size covering kneecaps , just long enuf to cover knees what we call dakni sryle

puratan kachere were never bellow knees,

puratan singhs even used to tie knot on kachere above knee so that no insect or anything can cross

big huge kachere are not usable in battle and hinder in movement ,

      Akalifauj, you tw*t........
    • Btw, you might be interested in this book. It's in regards to America, but could apply even more to Britain since the percentage of Muslims is so much higher: Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives have Penetrated Washington by Paul Sperry  https://www.amazon.com/Infiltration-Muslim-Subversives-Penetrated-Washington/dp/1595552480?tag=nypost-20 The most sinister terrorists won't be sneaking through our borders from the Middle East. They're already here. This is the untold story about the silent, yet extremely dangerous threat from the Muslim establishment in America?an alarming exposé of how Muslims have for years been secretly infiltrating American society, government, and culture, pretending to be peace-loving and patriotic, while supporting violent jihad and working to turn America into an Islamic state. In this powder keg of a book, you'll learn: How radical Muslims have penetrated the U.S. military, the FBI, the Homeland Security Department, and even the White House?where subversive Muslims and Arabs have received top-secret clearance. How they've infiltrated the chaplains program in the federal and state prison systems?a top recruiting ground for al-Qaida. How they've successfully run influence operations against our political system with the help of both Democrats and Republicans, badgering corporate boards into Islamizing the workplace. How we've been utterly duped about what the Quran does and doesn't teach. Sadly, much of anti-Western terrorism is simply Islam in practice, the text of the Quran in action. In a time when religious and political leaders are scrambling to smooth over differences in faith and beliefs, this book gives the terrifying truth abaout the very real, very deadly agenda of Islam and how it has already infiltrated key American institutions with agents, spies, and subversives.  
    • I tried and failed to find any post by user @Commuterist that triggered the socialist party account. Do you have that?
    • First of all, that clash at the Akal Takhat keeps paying us negative dividends again and again. On the one hand, what was the big deal with letting Simranjit Singh Mann address the congregation? He had been doing it for a long time without issue. On the other hand, Mann's peeps did not have to riot, certainly not pulling out kirpans. (Or was that just the SGPC Task Force?)  Stupid. Secondly, it was not religious violence per se. I suppose it would have been if Sikhs and Hindus were going at it. It was a dispute about allowing someone to make a political speech. In that sense, the riots at Berkeley and Middlebury College to prevent speakers from speaking were Christian violence, no? Even if all (most) were Christians even if nominally, that doesn't make the violence Christian violence.

      Amazing to see His grace inspire satsangat to help our sister from the entrapment of maaya.  Thank you all for such beautiful  Gursikhi support at a time when it was needed. And thank you bhenji for listening to the conscience and not your mind. He is always listening, we just need to find the ears and eyes to recognise Him. Dhan Guru, Dhan Guru Piyare
