Rushil's Head Shaving Ceremony

Last weekend, I went home to Detroit for my cousin's son's head shaving ceremony. It is tradition in our family to wait a certain amount of time before a boy gets his hair cut for the first time. Some people wait 5 years but nowadays parents cut their child's hair earlier. Rushil was 2 1/2 at this occasion, you can see the nice long hair he has grown over that time. After a ceremony at the Canton Hindu Temple, we went to his house and shaved his head bald. You can see the pictures of Rushil with a head full of hair to no hair!

Rushil's beautiful hair!
