Daddy’s Turban is a children’s story about the fascination of a little boy, Tegh, with the way his father dresses and particularly how he wears his turbans. Tegh wants to grow up faster, while his father cherishes the naiveté of his son. A bilingual book, combining both English and Panjabi in equal measure, Daddy’s Turban explores the significance of dastar (turban) through the connection between father and son. It’s a story of Sikh culture and a celebration of its most cherished ceremonies. Daddy’s Turban would be a perfect introduction to Sikh culture for kids from 4 to 10 years old, as well as their parents, grandparents, and educators, as the book contains a special essay The Significance of Dastar Bandi written by Rubin Paul Singh, which explains the deeper reasons behind wearing a turban. The book was written by Inni Kaur, meticulously edited by Gurdit Singh, poetically translated by Harminder Singh, and gracefully illustrated by Anantdip Kaur.
