APTOPIX India Ritual
A barber tonsures a child's hair as part of a ritual, called Mundan, at Sangam, the confluence of the Rivers Ganges, Yamuna the mythical Saraswati, in Allahabad, India, Wednesday, May 15, 2013. Hindus across India perform the Mundan ceremony when the child is a few years old. This ceremony is mostly performed at some religious place, where the child's hair is cut and head shaved for the first time and friends and relative are entertained to a feast.
