Devout Sikh Avtar Singh Mauni takes six hours to put his turban on every day, as it is the world's longest turban, measuring 2,116 feet. It has taken him 16 years to assemble and means that the 60 year old, from Patiala, in the Punjab, is carrying 100 lbs on his head every day. Avtar says, "I just keep putting on the cloth from top to bottom one layer at a time just like you would lay the stories of a building... I don't consider it to be a burden. I'm most happy when I wear it. On the rare times I don't have my turban on I keep getting this feeling of being incomplete, that some part of me is missing. I get afraid that I may fall and I keep wondering 'have I lost something, where is my turban?'" Avtar also rides a motorcycle on his pilgrimages, as the height and width of the turban means that he is unable to get into a car.
