An Offering of Hindu Faith

If I understand this Hindu ritual correctly, one must offer the loss of their hair by shaving at the temple 5 times in a lifetime.  Most start as children around 1 years old reaching their 5th offering by 5-6 years old.  Others later in life make this personal offering on a religious, voluntary basis.

On this day multiple families were making this offering of faith with everyone  shaved.

I haven’t seen a straight blade razor in active use in years.  These “Barbers” are truly talented as rarely is there any accident.  Secret – keeping the blade razor-sharp avoids issues.
