Tikka Rani Jagjit Kaur Bedi kept strict purdah before 1947. She, along with her husband Tikka Surinder Singh Bedi, migrated to Delhi soon after Partition. She wore this burkha while fleeing Kallar. Once in their new home, with the pressing need to help re-build their lives, she gave up on the purdah and never wore a burkha again.
