On 74th Independence Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stepped out in a traditional kurta and churidar. But what caught our attention as always was his trademark headgear. This time, PM Modi wore an orange and yellow safa (Rajasthani headgear) with a long trail, adding a good contrast to his cream-coloured attire. He teamed it with a white and orange stole.
The Prime Minister’s sartorial choices have always stood out and won praise, but it is his turban trend in particular that deserves special mention. On this occasion, let us take a look at all the Independence Day headgears that he has worn in the past.
