IN SIKH CULTURE a turban is an important symbol and it takes a lot for man to remove it.

That is exactly what two men who were attending a religious festival in the Indian state of Punjab did.

Seeing that four younger boys who had jumped into the water had become distressed and overwhelmed, Inderpal Singh and Kanwaljit Singh quickly took action.

The two men quickly removed their headdresses and used them to pull the boys around to an area where they were able to climb out of the water.

Speaking to NDTV, Inderpal Singh, said, “I had no time to think and quickly removed my turban and threw it at the drowning boys and pulled them in.”

In May a Sikh man in New Zealand removed his turban to save the life of a 5-year-old boy.
