Teach Me How To Tie A Dumalla

Recommended Posts

I keep trying to tie one, but I can't.

Can someone give me a step by step tutorial or something cuz most of the tutorials on youtube are not good enough.

I've got a small head, so what length of material do i need etc.

I want something that i can tie everyday and will be suitable for wearing in school.

Oh and apparently you gotta tie dumallas to be a "true sikh". 😑😐😯

How nice to hear that! I wear a round one myself. I agree, the youtube videos never show you how to get it neat and tidy from the back.

Do you want a step-by-step tutorial? Also are you trying to learn Gol Dastar or dumalla?

There are many people I see with different styles (like patiala shahe) and they are amritdhari's.

Let me define what a true sikh is: Someone who has given their head to their guru and follow FULL (and I mean FULL) maryada. Such as eating only from sarbloh plates, etc.

But a true sikh can be even further than that!

Did you know most Guru's wore mughal style turbans?

As for tying a dumalla, what I do is get the smaller material of all my materials and make a knot at the end. I then grip it to the back of my head and wrap my hair in it. I don't twist it, I just casually tie it around. From there I cover whatever is sticking out from the knot with a whole lahr. 

For the dumalla itself, it can be anything. A dumalla isn't necessarily a 2 foot stick inside. I suggest to tie it like how singni's tend to tie it. It's more easier and I tie it when I am in a hurry.

I saw a video a while back of some nihang singh saying that we are suppose to wear dumallas because "guru sahib blessed us with it" and we should be "ashamed of ourselves" for wearing the triangle ones.

Is that true?

bro ,

dumalla  is two turbans , the form is not important as many gursikh have worn patiala style on top of gol inner ones such as Bhai jeevan singh ji and he definitely was a true Gursikh

This is a bad idea...reason being if you have ever been In  a real fight you will know your enemy will pull your pagh and your kesh and use it to your disadvantage.  You should tie your dumalla in such a way that if any scum bag hanks or grapples you , your dastaar will come off and they can't drag you...and no your kesh will stay intact in your head without coming undone. Didn't some sings die many years back because their dastaara wrapped around their arms in the water? Something to think about.

So basically, tie a small loose one?

Also, if your two turbans (keski and main) are the same color make sure you don't mix them by using the main as the keski and the keski as the main. Hate when it happens :(

The way i do it i wrap up my jura then tie a ghol dastaar, if my dastaar does come off my jura is wrapped super tight so it won't come undone. In your case wrap your Jura do ur bunga and tie your dumalla so incase it can come off it won't drag you with it. Hope I make sense Khalsa Ji?

    • They were loyal as far as it suited them but in the meanwhile they was having secret communications with the British agents. For example the prime minister of sarkar-e-khalsa was a dogra hindu punjabi and the general gulab singh was also a hindu dogra. We all know how that turned out. The generals two who betrayed the Sikhs in the anglo-sikh wars were of brahmin hindu stock who hid themselves in hindu mandirs like a typical cowardly hindu brahmin after the surviving angry Sikh troops came looking for them after the battles, I think they were even lynched by the Sikhs after finding them from what i read from historical books. The white european generals and adventurist mercenaries who joined the Sikh Khalsa army were also traitors who even though they hated the British due to the American independence and  Napoleonic wars, they still had racial loyalty to other whites than non-white powers. So they would often have secret communications with the invading white british supremacists in order to do over those they were serving at the time. Maharajah ranjit singh's govt and empire's downfall was that he trusted non-sikhs in key positions of power. He didn't purge or force conversion to those who wanted to be in his inner circle. Too many people with competing interests and loyalties then betrayed the mother land punjab and his empire because they saw better opportunities with the foreign invaders. Just like in present days we see the same thing in politics of punjab. They do each other over rather than unite and fight the common foreign occupying power (centralised Indian govt in delhi). The house of pataila has always been a kingdom of sellouts and betrayers of the Sikh panth. The founder of patiala kingdom was a vessal state in all but name of afghan invader abdali when in the mean time the Sikhs of other kingdoms and land of punjab was busy fighting and dying to save the faith and their families of the onslaught. And just as his ancestor betrayed the kaum so did the grandfather of captain amrinder singh who became a freemason to help the british against Sikh empire/punjab. And so did his father and now captain amrinder singh is also a gaddar inheriting the long legacy of traitorous behaviour and mindset by putting his lot in and siding with Indian congress party in order to have some power in the indian establishment.

    • Agree, it’s the actions of the person that makes somebody negative. There was a video I saw a while ago, on this, but can’t find it now. A person can also change from a negative one to a good one. Like they say, Every Saint has a past, and every sinner a future.     
    • Although such abuses do happen now and then it is not a wide spread problem especially in Sikh community its more a hindu and muslim centric problem as they rely on dowry in their religious scriptures and culturally its been going on for thousands of years. The abuses are a very tiny percentage there's probably more  domestic abuse cases in Australian white privileged gay relationships than all the ethnic minorities put together. This article smacks of white privilege and covert racist dog whistling against ehtnic/religious minority communities the sad thing is asians/indains are too lazy to reply back to such white washed propaganda. If minorities really wanted to expose the white western cultural disgusting practices and norms such as wide spread abuse from alcoholism. Domestic violence prevalent in white communities in homosexual couples too. The amount of single parent families in white households. The outrageous neglect of elderly by white communities... then list would be endless and the whites would be outraged enough to try and defend their negative cultural practices and counter bash minority communities. It's long over due that time ethnic/religious community especially ours started to defend ourselves in the mainstream mass media produce counter pieces and counter propaganda against our accusers. otherwise this overt racism will just keep on happening. And next time you are looked at negatively for jobs, or in the street attacked cos of your faith or appearance it is because of such articles helped contribute to it.
