Cap And Turban

Cap and turban

One man wore a cap and the other wore a turban

Shot at Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I met these men during rambling along the streets. Apparently, they were Indian descents. The man in the right hand hid his hair with a cap-like object because he was a Sikh. The number of Sikhs accounted for just a fraction of a percent of the population in India. Nevertheless, many Sikhs were expatriate in the former British colonies because the British authority gave important posts to them in the colonies.

It was uncommon to see any Sikhs in Japan. So the man with a beard looked like a pirate coming out of a movie for me. By the way, Sikhs were allowed for riding motorbikes without helmets because they had to wear turban.
