R-Day celebrations to see BSF’s women guards in regal attire as part of Camel Contingent

Guwahati: The legendary BSF Camel Contingent, which has taken part in Republic Day celebrations since 1976, will include the first-ever female contingent of the BSF in 2023 as they ride camels alongside their male counterparts.

The Mahila Praharis’ attire was designed by famous fashion designer Raghavendra Rathore and represents the country’s myriad priceless artisan traditions. They were created around the country and then assembled in-house at the Raghavendra Rathore studio in Jodhpur.

The Mahila Praharis uniform for the BSF Camel Contingent brand incorporates the sartorial and cultural characteristics of Rajasthan’s historical periods.

When developing the outfit for BSF ladies, attention was paid to the utility, privilege, and honour of donning one of the National Forces’ Uniforms. This is reminiscent of the storied RRJ Jodhpuri Bandhgala, which epitomises stateliness, refinement, and grace.

The 400-year-old Danka technique is used to make the textured cloth with hand-crafted zardozi work for the many trims from Banaras.

A turban modelled after the traditional Pagh of the Mewar area of Rajasthan on the uniform is a distinctive pagh.
