Wonderful image! Do you know why some of them cut their hair? Is it something cultural or religious?

I believe some do it as a statement challenging Indian’s perceptions about female beauty since they want women to have long hair.

And after doing a little bit of Google searching, I’ve read that there is a temple in south-eastern India where women offer their hair as a gift to Lord Venkateswara, the presiding deity.

However, that photo was taken in Varanasi which is pretty far north so I believe that the women in the photo shaved their heads as a statement rather than for religious reasons.  But don’t take my word for it, I just took the picture as my boat was pulling off to the side.
