Turban Territory - Rajasthan pt1

Jodphur was a maize of colors - of reds, pinks and oranges.  I had thought Bangalore colorful but it seriously pales beside the attire of its northern counterparts. Some of this is  due to the male head gear!

Adam seemed to think his turban added wisdom, Wills a smile!!

We got a couple of opportunities to watch how you wind a turban from scratch and yes - it  really is that long!! We have enough problems tying ties in our household - would never get to school if the boys wore turbans -but I do think they look good!

Just finishing it off!
The colors of a collection of turbans (should be a word for it - a triumph of turbans would fit the bill!) is wild!!

  1. This is so super! I don't know how they are able to keep their hair long and wear the turban in the heat! But I understand it has much significance and honor and more!
