Got an old pugh? Has it been starched out? Has your saliva messed both ends of the pugh to the point that you can’t even keep the tail in or your lahrs are now a two tone grey and white?
There are thousands of starving little Sardars in Punjab that are in need of patkas. Recent studies have also shown that the primary reason why many little Sardars are cutting their hair is not because of social or moral forces, but ECONOMIC ones. The cost of patkas is just too high. The future of Sikhism is threatened by Adam Smith’s infamous invisible hand. Furthermore, attempts at regulating the vast and far flung patka market have failed as huge black markets in the backs of unscrupulous langar halls have taken hold. Studies now indicate the black market for patkas and rumals are now bigger than the ethical one.
Donate your pugh to Pughs for Patkas. A new charity that will take your pughs, bleach them with lassi, and recycle them for young Sardars in the poor villages of Punjab. One heavily used pugh can make 12 patkas: 10 white and 2 grey. That means for every pugh, you can cover the heads of 12 little children across India.
