Nov 17, 2010: Dumalla

A dumalla, in this case the worlds largest dumalla, is warrior turban.

This is Baba Major Singh, he's a Nihang Sikh, an order of monk-warriors.



I would think it would be a little hard to fight with that turban on, so it must be ceremonial.
1300 feet of fabric, plus all the hardware, would be kind of heavy.
He must walk like those charm school girls with a book on their head, like in the old movies.

The assembly.

Awesome.

He looks like he's walked off the set of a Harry Potter movie. Amirite?

Kind of like that poor guy in the first photo, with the little white turban? He got stuck sitting behind the giant turban on picture day.

Maybe he's a wizard just starting school and that's the sorting hat.

Only 100 hairpins? That's not much. I've had 30+ in a hairstyle for just a foot and a half of hair.
