The English translation is excellent, but the symbolic meaning of Pagri
sambhaal Jatta is literally "look to thy honour/Pride,Jatta." The turban
was the symbol of self-respect, pride and honour through the ages. So Pagri
Sambhaal Jatta means look at thy heritage of pride and honor, Jatta.
The idea of a pagri was that it would not be Ever taken off to be laid down
at the feet of a conqueror. That is what the heritage of Sikhism is all
about. Valour in the face of overwhelming odds.
Could somebody change the subtitles accordingly? If I knew how to do that,
I would have subtitled more of these excellent videos so that My friends
abroad would know all about the history of a brave warrior race.
Also another interesting thing. Mannu was a tyrant who had decided to
exterminate the Sikhs thus giving rise to a very popular saying- (Mannu
saadi daatri) Mannu is our scythe, we are harvested by him. As he tries to
reap us, we spring up manifold...
That is The spirit of survival, coming down through the ages in the Sikhs.

Pagri Sambhal Jatta was a movement started by Sardar Kishen Singh (Uncle of
Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh). It is a cry to get up and do some work and
have some respect.
