Head Shave (Mundan):Mundan ceremonies Boys vs Girls!
2013-01-04
Name: Sneha How much ever advances India might have become. But there is still considered a difference between baby girls and baby boys even for a mundan ceremony. Even today in some households (like mine) they celebrate a mundan of a boy with huge pomp and show! and for a girl they do it at a near by parlour.Astonishing!

Yes even today some people keep boys over girls but it will only change if one takes an initiative like if you think celebrating functions for a girl is as important as it is for a boy then make a difference. Celebrate her too.

I totally agree with Sneha. I saw a similar case happening in my neighbourhood.They just took a scissor and shaved her themselves at home. No puja no proper ceremony nothing! That is why they say literacy doesnt come with being enriched with degrees!

Sneha and Prerna - What is the point in crying about what other do or not do? Take things in your hands where you have a say and do it right. If you have young female kids of age 2+, please do their mundan with the same pomp as for male babies. Others will follow suit.
And Tammana - why do you bring in third world country and all that stuff just because the ceremony is done differently for male and female babies? Do you know that the highest cases of rape of women happens in the so called leader of the so called first world ´ USA´ ? Between rape of women and tonsure of female kids, which is of more serious nature?

Hi Latha, go for it even i have done and its gives you 100% cure from dandruff. Your parents are right. If you want to get rid of this problem on permanent basis go for it and see the change.... - Piu [View Message]
RE:hi friends
Shaving your head will only be a temporary relief from the problem. Other ways will take time but they at least will last long. There is no permanent relief to the problem but you can at least try to get relief from it.... - Neev [View Message]
RE:hi friends
Shaving your head won't help you get rid of dandruff. Dandruff is kind of an skin infection and once you hair will grow even a lil the dandruff will be back and you can not be bald for life of course. See a doctor instead.... - NN [View Message]
RE:hi friends
Shaving your head will not be a permanent solution to your dandruff problem as when your hair grow back the problem will mostly come back to. Instead go your medications and get a hold on it and then get rid of it.... - NN [View Message]
RE:hi friends
Yes there are many other ways to get rid of dandruff like you can consult a doctor about it and take lotions and medications for it. There are also many naturals ways that you can find out if you google them.... - Sakshi [View Message]

RE:Head Shaving Issues n Concerns
Mundan is a tradition that has been taking place in india since the time man remembers and i don't think there is anything that should worry you. The people that do it are well versed in their job and are careful enough.... - Monica [View Message]
