Finally an Answer to Why a “Fifty” is Called a “Fifty”

A singh addressing a crowd finally answered a question on why a fifty is called a fifty. The Singh stated that he learned about this when he was in 9th grade.

The history behind the fifty story goes back to British rule when they made Sikhs eliminate the length of the turban. It was reduced to 50% of the normal amount of the time. The British officer would check each turbaned Sikh soldier and state fifty over and over again to confirm the turban on each Sikh is half the original size.

The interesting question has made many people wonder but we finally got the answer.
