1. In different cultures, specific items of clothing often convey contrary meanings.

2. This creates misunderstanding and conflicts. Consider the case of the turban and the hat. These two headgears not only look different but also signify different things.

3. The turban in India is not just for protection from heat but is a sign of respectability and cannot be removed at will. In the western tradition, this has to be removed before social superiors as a sign of respect.
