Bhangda Pagdi

 Bhangda Pagdi  

Bhaṅgṛā is a type of traditional dance of the Indian subcontinent, originating in Sialkot in the Majha area of Punjab. The dance was associated primarily with the spring harvest festival Baisakhi. In a typical performance, several dancers executed vigorous kicks, leaps, and bends of the body to the accompaniment of short songs called boliyan and, most significantly, to the beat of a dhol (double-headed drum).Struck with a heavy beater on one end and with a lighter stick on the other, the dhol imbued the music with a syncopated (accents on the weak beats), swinging rhythmic character that has generally remained the hallmark of any music that has come to bear the bhangra name.

A dastar is a pagri worn by Sikhs. It is mandatory for all Khalsas, i.e., Amritdhari Sikhs, to wear one. Styles may vary between different Sikh orders and regions. A Sikh turban plays an important part of the unique Sikh identity. It is worn to cover the long, uncut hair (termed kesh) that is one of the five outward symbols ordered by Guru Gobind Singh as a means to profess the Khalsa Sikh faith. The most commonly worn styles of dastar include PatialaShahi dastar, Morni/Pochvi dastar, Amritsar Shahi dastar, Canadian style and many more regional. In Punjabi dialects pagri is often shortened to pagg. A pagri is a symbol of honour and respect in all the regions where it is a practice to wear one.
