An undergarment worn by baptized Sikhs, one of the five Ks.
Kacchera or Kaccha are specially designed short, shalwar-like loose undergarments with a tie-knot worn by baptized Sikhs. It is one of the five Sikh articles of faith called the Five Ks, and was given as a "gift of love" by Guru Gobind Singh at the Baisakhi Amrit Sanskar in 1699. Kacchera have been worn by baptized Sikhs since a mandatory religious commandment given by Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of Sikhism, in 1699. Both male and female Sikhs wear similar undergarments. This is one of five articles of faith—collectively called "Kakkars"—that form the external, visible symbols clearly and outwardly displaying one's commitment and dedication to the order of the tenth master. The Sikh Code of Conduct states "For a Sikh, there is no restriction or requirement as to dress except that he must wear Kachhehra and turban." Kachera is a drawer type fastened by a fitted string round the waist, very often worn as an underwear. This Kakkar was given by Gobind Singh to remind his Sikhs that they should control their sexual desire, Kaam. The kacchera is above-the-knee underwear meant to give a feeling of dignity, modesty, and honour to the person who wears it.
