Modi sports special Jamnagar Paghdi on 72nd Republic Day


On the occasion of the 72nd Republic Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi sported a special Jamnagar turban as a part of his traditional attire during the celebratory parade.

Continuing his annual tradition of sporting special traditional turbans during Republic Day celebrations, PM Modi wore a red headgear with yellow dots, gifted to him by the royal family of Jamnagar, Gujarat.


Along with the turban he was seen wearing his traditional kurta, pajama, and gray jacket along with a face mask.

The royal family of Jamnagar holds special respect globally.

In one of the defining acts of humanity during World War II, the king of Jamnagar, Maharaja Jam Saheb Digvijay Singh, had saved 1,000 children from Poland during the war. Poland still cherishes this gesture of Jamanagar’s erstwhile King.

The PM had also extended greetings to the nation on the special occasion. “Wishing all the people of India a Happy Republic Day. Jai Hind!” PM had tweeted.

Modi’s sartorial choices have made headlines on many occasions — from his headgears for Independence Day celebrations to the suit printed with his name — he surely knows how to stand out.

For his maiden Independence Day address as the PM in 2014, he had opted for a Jodhpuri bandhej turban in bright red colour with green at the tail.
