I HAVE JUST BECOME A TEENAGER AND I AM PROUD TO BE A SIKH.I DO HAVE A PROBLEM WHEN I GO SWIMMING.I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IF SOMEONE COULD HELP ME.I HAVE TRIED KEEPING MY PATKA ON WHEN I SWIM--IT JUST GETS TOOO WET.IF I GO SWIMMING WITHOUT MY PATKA--PEOPLE THINK I AM A GIRL.MY MOM BROUGHT A SWIMMING CAP TO PUT ON TOP OF MY PATKA WHICH WORKS BUT MY JOORA STICKS OUT AND I LOOK LIKE AN ALIEN OR SOMETHING.EVEN WHEN I GO TO VACATIONS WITH MY PARENTS ON A BEACH--ITS HARD FOR ME TO SWIM WITH MY PATKA.PLEASE GIVE ME SOME SUGGESTIONS.THANKS

Sat SIri AKaal. I hope someone out there has a foolproof method to help this veerji. I was wondering if there is a way to tie another patka so that it wraps under the chin, thus holding the entire thing on... The only other option is the cap over the patka as you described, and people will just have to get used to the fact that the 'lump' on top is all your wonderful hair. Guru ang sang,
