Is this commonly praticed still? I ask because I have many Indian customers coming in at my new job and none have had this done to any of their children. Very interesting though! Thank you! I will keep this in mind it is a religious practice should I ever come across it. Might I ask why?

Oh Tia!What a pleasant surprise after along time.How is your new job and how are you?I will be wishing you the beast always.Evn Will responded to this discussion and wanted to know why.I am giving you the same answer I have given to Will. In Hinduism, the underlying concept is that hair is a symbolic offering to the gods, representing a real sacrifice of beauty, and in return, are given blessings in proportion to their sacrifice.

I am a Hindu too but I don't think my parents ever shaved my head when I was a baby which is quite strange as all of my Bengali family friends and relatives had their heads shaved when they were babies... I might have to ask my parents why they never shaved mine LOL!
