Why are children shaved in Hinduism?  Not superstition, scientific reason behind it

Mumbai: People of many religions live in India. Every religion has different rules and regulations. There are many other rules of Hindus. From childbirth to weddings, funerals and festivals, people have different customs. One of them is the shaving ceremony. This ceremony is performed by a child born in a Hindu family. Mundan is considered one of the 16 sacraments of Hindus.

Some of them shave both boys and girls, while some shave only children. But still why this shaving is done in the first place? have you ever wondered? Let us know the reason behind this.

Often in Hindu families, a child is born at the time of birth, so people say that I will come somewhere and get the child shaved. That’s why they let your child’s hair in that spot. This is done because of the wishes of the people.

 

But do you know that there is a science behind shaving a newborn that very few people know about. Yes, it is very important to remove the hair of the child’s head from a scientific point of view.

This is the scientific reason for shaving-

 

When the child comes to this world after nine months in the mother’s womb, there are many types of germs in his head. These germs and bacteria cannot be removed even with shampoo. As a result, children’s hair is removed. Which kills all these germs and bacteria.

By removing hair from the head of children, their body temperature is also controlled. After shaving the child gets rid of diseases like blisters, pimples and diarrhoea. Also his head remains cool.

After shaving, all the hair on the child’s head is removed, due to which the sunlight falls directly on his head. This incense is very beneficial for the development of the brain. It activates the cells and improves blood flow in the veins.

There is also a scientific belief that shaving makes children get teeth easily. Usually, when a child’s teeth come in, he starts having diarrhea. It also comes with heat. But if you shave, then you will not have much problem in getting teeth.
