The five symbols of the Sikh religion:
1 kirpan (a dagger)
2 kara (an iron wristband)
3 kesh (uncut hair)
4 kacha (short trousers)
5 kunga (a comb worn in the hair)
These symbols, the 5Ks, have been been styled by the London based poet Daljit Nagra as the five Bs: 'blade, bangle, barnet, boxers and brush'.
