In Pictures and in some stories I heard Sahibzaade use to wear kalgis but if Sikhs are not permitted to wear them since they symbolize royalty and only our Guru is king. So is it true or did Sahibzaade really wear kalgis in front of Guru Sahib is that not Paap? Shouldn't it be sin to wear kalgis in front of our Guru since we are dust and guru is everything. Even if we are not in the presence of Guru Sahib isn't egoistical to wear kalgi? Does royalty make a difference in Sikhi? Where is equality in Sikhi?

That's the trouble with pictures. It is only the artist's imagination. Whether the sons of Guru Gobind Singh wore kalgi is not known. If they did, I'm sure the Master placed them there himself, perhaps for a special occasion and out of love and only that. Every Sikh is equally royal and is crowned as such. We are sovereign and we bow only to our Guru, not to any man or woman.

I understand your point. But I have heard of a poem or something that's called " Chum chum Rakhi kalgi jujhaar Di" Is that even written by our Gurus? And I have also seen Banda Singh Bahadur Ji in pictures with a kalgi which is completely against what I hear in kutha

No, I've not heard of that poem. Perhaps others here have done.
