kesh = hair, kanga =comb to keep their long hair tidy, kara =steel bangle worn on the right arm.

kaccha =similar to soldiers undershorts, kirpan = warriors sword.

they are literal meanings of the word. these objects hold more than literal meanings in the life of a practising sikh – both men and women.
