What is the importance of Mundan Sanskar (referring to the Indian tradition of Shaving a babies’ head after a year of birth)?
Our ancestors have told that we have to shave off the first hair of a child. Then the new hair will come. It is the same as how the first teeth fall on their own and only then do new teeth come. But the hair has to be removed first time; it does not fall off automatically like the teeth. They will grow again in time. Read more about Javal (Mundan Sanskar)..
