INDIA: Head-shaving celebration

by Mircea Samoila March. 01, 2010 10864 views

My colleague Pandi (I call him Pandiji) invited me to his son's head-shaving ceremony. Hindus do this when their children turn 1 year old: they shave the baby's head and apply a yellow paste made of sandal wood, which cools and soothes the skin

Pandiji is the first one on the right
