This Is What My Turban Means

"Don't you feel hot under your turban?" asked a colleague. I smiled, and replied to his curious question, "No king has ever felt hot under his crown. And for Sikhs the turban is our crown." Over the years I have found a deeper answer to this question: What is the importance of a turban? A Sikh turban symbolises the virtues and values that our Gurus have taught us.
