Dhoti, kurta, coat, waistcoat, turban (or cap), a hand towel upon the
shoulders and a copy of the Panchang (astrological
ephemeris) under the arm are the traditional attire of the Brahmin priest.
The Rajputs wore tight fitting churidar pyjamas, a long coat, a starched
turban with a special crown, pointed shoes, a flourishing pair of moustaches
and a frown upon their foreheads. The Rajputs followed the Purdah system.
Their wives and daughters when they stepped out of the house, rode in
curtained palanquins. They lived in close proximity to each other and
had special guest houses, a little removed from their dwelling places.
Women belonging to the Brahmin and the Rajput families wore kurtas, salwars,
long skirts (ghaghri), embroidered tops (choli) and red head scarves (rahide)
with gold edgings. The farmers and labour classes wore only kurta, a loincloth
and a cap. They put on long pyjamas only on special occasions like a wedding
or a festival. The new socio-economic trends have changed all this classes
and castes now wear western style clothes.
