One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The uncut hair and beard worn as one of the five distinguishing signs of the Sikh Khalsa.
- ‘I wanted to keep my Kes, so I didn't have a hair cut for a long time.’
- ‘Since all Sikhs pledge to not cut their hair, Kesh reminds Sikhs of their equality, and removes reason for pride.’
- ‘It is not to say that you have less love and devotion for Sikhism or are less religious than the majorihv who keep their kesh.’
- ‘Because of their Kesh, Sikh men wear their hair tied up in a bun and hidden by a turban.’
- ‘They discussed the challenges of racism, such as Sikhs not being allowed to serve in the police force/armed forces of the U.S. while wearing a turban and keeping their kesh.’
From Punjabi keś.
