Youngsters these days show a keen interest in learning eye-catching ways of wearing a turban to provide a unique look. To cater to the growing trend, turban tying classes and academies are emerging where young Sikhs often come with their own requirements. Describing the changing trend, Manjeet Singh Ferozpuria, the ‘turban coach’ from Bathinda,
“We get orders to tie turbans not only for NRI weddings but also other weddings. We get atleast 27 turban tying order from a marriage on an average,” he said.
He added, “Youngsters join the course in our academy to learn different styles of turban tying. Initially, they wanted to learn how to tie turbans in different styles like that of Punjabi singers Inderjit Nikku and Ravinder Grewal. Then came the Diljeet Dosanjh style. But now, the new demand is to replicate the style of budding Punjabi singer Ammy Virk.”
“There are NRIs who ask for a set of five rubia fabric turbans. Some of my NRI clients ask me to get a pack of five turbans which they use for a year,” he said. Calling himself the master of the art of tying a turban in any style within a minute, Manjeet Singh said, “I am giving classes because turbans are back in fashion.”
