3. Kesh Lochan
A very popular ritual in India is to sacrifice one’s hair and offer it to God. People somehow believe that to thank or please God, it is a good idea to make Him wake up with shedloads of hair dumped for Him. So, it is a wide practice to offer locks to God. Some people even take it a step forward, and go bald, to offer all the hair to God. But, even then, they got beaten by the Jains, who have quite a painful and shocking Rituals in India. The Jain saints and monks practice the ritual of going bald by plucking the hair out. They either do it themselves, or have someone do the plucking for them, once or twice a year, as a mark of renunciation of worldly pleasures and to teach endurance of pain.
