Sat Nam,

You just have to make a choice on this one. People always make fun of one thing or another and that what makes us find our strength. You are who you are whether you wear patka or dastar it does not make a difference.
On the other hand if you just decide to be strong about it and wear it like a crown then eventually people will respect that and recognize the king in you.
The tick is to recognize the king in yourself first.
Yogi Bhajan used to say that you are who you say you are. Even if sometimes you may have a doubt within there is nothing worry, just keep it up and that is all everyone else will see.
