As people flooded the Twiitter with their best Safa images, Sachin Pilot's entry in the trend #SafaWithTwitter just took the cake. The Rajasthan deputy chief minister shared a video of him tying the headgear in less than 30 seconds.
The undated video is said to be from Nehru Centre in London.
In support of #SafaWithTwitter!
पगड़ी राजस्थान की शान है।

People were in awe of the leader tying the turban with such brevity.
Safa, the most iconic signifier of Rajasthani attire, is trending on Twitter. From politicians to common people, particularly from Rajasthan, netizens are posting their photographs and videos donning the Rajasthani headgear with hashtag #SafaWithTwitter.
Safa is worn usually on events like weddings and public gatherings. The 'bandhej' safa which comes in bright colour combinations like yellow, pink, red, green, etc is famous in the desert state of Rajasthan.
Before we share some top tweets in the trend, here is the video of a Rajasthan deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot tying the headgear with utmost grace, perfection and in less than 30 seconds.
Here are other entries in the trend.
Safa is not just a traditional headgear for us in Rajasthan. It symbolises dignity with a distinctive synthesis of pride and humility. This reflects in our anthem #PadharoMhareDes as well.

बड़े और बुजुर्गों का आशीर्वाद है पगड़ी ।
ज़िम्मेदारियों का एक एहसास है पगड़ी।।
