But now, the same turbans have become a hobby or a museum.  There are different types of helmets on people's heads today.  But there was a time when different types of turbans were seen on people's heads.  Not only that but even Prime Minister Narendra Modi never forgets to wear the traditional turban wherever he goes.  આ પણ વાંચો: જાણો તમારા આધારકાર્ડ નો ઉપયોગ ક્યાં ક્યાં થયો છે.

How did the turban originate?

In ancient times, when people bathed in rivers, lakes or springs, their hair would fall on their faces.  So he started using tree branches, leaves and vines to tie his hair.  Which gradually reached the cloth and in the long run it turned into a turban.  After that, various turbans started being made from rice, rice cloth and turbans also started to be divided along with the divisions of mankind and caste.  So that turbans showing their identity were created according to the region.

Why the legacy of the forgotten turban?

In today's modern age people are fond of appearance and styling.  Safa and turbans are forgotten in jeans and T-shirts.  Now only hobbies and occasions are limited to turbans.  In earlier times, it was considered inauspicious to go out of the house with an open head.  Not only that, but putting down the turban was considered an insult.  But in today’s superfast era the turban is now forgotten.  Only on the occasion of the wedding, the bridegroom wears enough turbans for the ceremony.
