Punjab Di Barbadi

Description Every organized religion enjoins upon its followers to wear some symbols as part of their dress to give them a distinct religious identity. Sikh religion also ordains its followers to wear five symbols called 'kakaars'. One of these five symbols one is a bracelet of steel which every Sikh, male and female, are enjoined upon to wear on their right wrist. This iron bracelet, besides being a symbol of self-control, has certain scientific advantages for the wearers health's according to the author of this tract, iron, being an integral part of human DNA, strengthens the human anatomy through its constant touch with the human skin. Moreover, iron, not only absorbs negative impulses, but also instills impulses of strength, bravery and steely determination. So the physical and psychological advantages of wearing an iron bracelet are numerous from scientific point of view. This is a unique interpretation of this Sikh symbol apart from its religious significance[edit]
