BANDAR TAUGHLI, sometimes spelled Bandar Togel or Bandar Tohole, is an Indo-Armenian language spoken in the little Central Asian country of Uzbekistan. The word, bandar, meaning “to tie or bind” is also commonly used in other non-Armenian languages, particularly in Arabic. The origin of the name is uncertain, and the word is not likely to derive from any particular spoken Turkish dialect. Regardless, the name does evoke a certain uniformity in the speech, with some forms being more rounded than others.
Bandar Togel has been a favorite of writers such as Enid Blyton, John Keats, Enid bin Laden, and Rudyard Kipling, who wrote an interesting song, “The Only Thing I Know about You,” that employs the language to describe a relationship between two lovers. The words are Greek in origin and may be either Greek or Iranian. Interestingly enough, the word was used by President Bill Clinton to describe his relationship with another world leader, and by the Russian president, Boris Yeltsin.
Bands of men often use these knots to tie a turban (heads covering face), a wedding band (a ring on the fourth finger), a knife (forward or backward), or even to tie a scarf (tied at the back of neck). In Turkey, the knot is usually made with an egg yolk. While this may seem peculiar, the egg yolk can be used as a pin to hold a tie knot in place. The egg yolk is then decorated with gold threads.
When a man is caught up in a hectic life situation, such as meeting a new person, he may find that time is limited. Instead of wasting time, he can choose to tie a knot. The knots can be used to signal an organization such as the military, law enforcement, fire department, or ambulance. It could also be used for a simple wish such as “I’ll try,” or to give someone a boost in spirits.
Bandar Tacky has evolved into a popular way of tying various ties and items in people’s clothing. People often use it to signal their rank or name. When members of a group are united, they can have a uniform tie that is recognized by everyone. It is a great way to break up the monotony. Since the tie is now made with metal instead of cotton, it is stronger than its earlier counterpart, which caused it to fray sooner than it would have.
The term Bandar Tacky is related to the Bandar tribe of South-East Asia, from whom the product takes its name. The ties are known for being very thick and durable, and are often used by shipping and construction industries. Today, the tie is used more for fashion than for function, as it tends to be too expensive for most people to purchase. Nevertheless, the tie has made its way into the popular culture of much of the western world, so it will probably not be long before we see a new version cropping up all over the place.
