The Rajasthani people are identified by the style and color of their Rajasthani turbans, which vary from region to region, and caste to caste. Turban is a very flexible and adaptive kind of clothing accessory, which can be well adjusted and worn according to the situation. While at home turbans are tied in an easygoing manner, which is hassle free to carry and quick to tie. Rajasthani turbans not only protect men from the heat of searing sun but also are indicative of one's class and caste. In Hindi, an Indian language, a turban is called a pagdi. A ‘pagari’ is usually 82 feet long and 8 inches wide. A ‘safa’ is shorter and broader. The common man wears turban of one color, while the elite wear designs and colors according to the occasion.

Characterful portrait with all those textures of face and cloth and the tight comp gives it a lot of impact. Thanks for the informative blurb too, makes for interesting reading.

This is an excellent portrait Debut and the information is much appreciated. I think some western ladies would pay quite a price to own such an attractive piece of headgear.Grin

Wonderful portait of this (presumably) elite man Debu, still trying to grasp the fact some turbans are 82ft. long, boggles the mind completely!
