I’m gonna miss my daughter’s hair locks. Tomorrow morning, she’ll get her ‘mottai’ ( tonsure ) at the Vadapalani temple. I love the softness of her silky hair.. the way she flicks her head to move the hair out of her face. Tomorrow morning it’ll all be gone but thankfully it’ll be her third and last ‘mottai’.
I’ve been speaking to her about this day for the last two months, sort of seasoning and preparing her for this day. Hopefully she won’t throw tantrums and create havoc.
Sigh! I’m gonna miss her fluffy soft hair.
