Talking about hair…



I have often seen guys with this kind of haircut: shaved head with a rat tail kind of thing (a strand of hair called here Choti). Considering this is pretty ugly, I have always believed it had to mean something.

So I showed this picture to my colleagues who did not really know and had a good laugh that I took such a picture!!




But they tried to give some explanations:


1. This is to show that they are Brahmines – and this strand has never been cut since they were born.

2. This is to show that his dead has died (he then has to shave his head but he can not lose all his “strength” (hair is a symbol of strength) and hence has to keep some)


For information, this was a rickshaw wallah/driver…
