Rainbow of Kesh


Recommended Posts

Inspired by the Manvir Singh post ;


Here are some beautiful pictures of beautiful Kesh - in all its wonderful rainbow of colours !

Being an old hippie at heart it reminds me of the lyrics to the song from the hippie musical 'Hair' ;

"Gimme head with hair

Long beautiful hair

Shining, gleaming,

Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Give me down to there hair

Shoulder length or longer

Here baby, there mama

Everywhere daddy daddy

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair

Flow it, show it

Long as God can grow it

My hair "

All together now "This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius

The age of Aquarius "

enough of that here are the Pics ;

Singhs in the 1980s - with huge jooras - almost every Singh goes through an almost 'uncontrollable amounts of kesh' stage usually at around 10 !



The 'just dragged out of bed to comb kesh' before school photo !

I think we can all indentify with that one ! - My Mum would work shifts but would always take extra care to look after our kesh - there were 4 of us ! - it showed us all the importance of our Kesh and also it was 'Quality Time' with our Mum - all parents are short of time - but the Kesh combing time was face to face individual child- focussed interaction - a time to chat and catch up and just quality parent/ child time - teaching us the fundementals of Sikhi. -ie. there is more to life than the 'Rat Race'
