Namita Jaspal talks about conserving sacred 400 year old, 52-tailed cloak of Sikh Guru Hargobind ji

(Interview in Hindi)

Here we present an interview with Namita Jaspal who has put a special effort to conserve Chola Sahib, the 400-year-old sacred robe that sixth Sikh Guru wore on the first Bandi Chhor Diwas in year 1619. Guru Hargobind wore the 52-tailed cloak on the day when he liberated 52 Hindu kings along with self from the Gwalior prison of Mughal emperor Jahangir and returned to Amritsar on Diwali, which Sikhs celebrate since as Bandi Chhor Diwas (day of liberation).

Preserved at Ghudani Kalan, a village near Ludhiana, the relic was restored by the team of conservator Namita Jaspal. This fabric of faith dates back to the early 17th century and the villagers are attached to it emotionally. It is a gift from the Guru for their hospitality once. It was a tradition with the Sikh Gurus to leave their belongings to their hosts, and the cloak is a symbol of that, said Namita Jaspal, professional conservator since 1995
