Shaarav's Mundan Ceremony @ 11th March 2018
Finally, we were able to organize the;Mundan;or Head tonsuring ceremony for Shaarav at 16 months. I am not a blind supporter of customs and rituals and have an open eye to superstitious beliefs; I believe when traditions do no harm to us there’s no need to oppose them uselessly. In our culture,;Mundan;or Head tonsuring ceremony of a child has been considered an auspicious ceremony apart from;Chhatthi,;Annapraashan, and Marriage irrespective of a girl or boy child.
We had a very fun and enjoyable;Mundan;ceremony as Shaarav took the ceremony very gaily and did not cry one bit during the procedure. But it did take a lot of distractions and cajoling. Shaarav was the one to enjoy the most. He met new people, interacted with them and even played with them. Shaarav with his friendly and inviting nature was a delight to watch and the centre of attraction for all guests. He kept the guests entertained with his baby antics and kept the ambience very light and fun. All the guests had a good time, enjoyed a good meal and showered Shaarav with happy blessings. So all together, the ceremony was a success. #dotingdaddy #cloudandsunshine

Congratulations. He is looking adorable.

He is sitting in whose lap? Humare yaha it's bua.

Everybody is looking nice ,,Congratulations it seems a big function in ur culture. Really very nice and baby is so calm while this goes on😄

Nice pic lovely

I agree with you Kartik. Certain ceremonies and traditions are best done and not questioned for the sake of them. In the end as long as you enjoy and kids do too, just do it. It’s a bahana to catch up with friends and family anyway and dress up too !

Lovely 🎉

Wow he looks too cute ....With; his new look. .. 😊


Hey awesome pix kartik!! How have u all been? We have been missing u on the app!

Claps claps. Awesome.

very cute looks saarav☺superb!

Lovely pics!!!! Thanks for sharing

Lovely pics.

Beautiful clicks n congrats once again..

Thank you everyone!

Ujjwal Mishra(SuperMommy); he is sitting in his Naana's lap...his Bua is collecting his hair...!

Yes it indeed is a big event in a child's life in our culture...though it differs how each one celebrates it Parul Johari

You are right Neha Agarwal

Awesome pic.

lovely pics

Thanks asha chaudhry. I have been really busy with commuting home every now and then, the mundan ceremony, father's operation that is coming up...and a toddler at was unable to find time to spend much time on the app...just a glance and a few likes and comments was only I could manage...thank you for keeping me in your thoughts...will be back once all of this gets over...i hope it's soon because even I have been missing my babychakra family!

So sweet. Tc kartik!

Rightly said. For us Mundan is not such a big compulsion. We didn't do my son's mundan as there was no consensus on the right timing. I didn't want to wait too long as his hair was all over his eyes etc, on the other hand I was told to wait till he's over 2. Which I wasn't ready for. In the end my fil said just go get him a nice haircut!

Lovely pics!!! Im waiting fr ma kaveesh mundan.dnt knw hw i vl manage my boy..he is super naughty


Renuka Pillai Shaarav too is naughty but we too are amazed at how easy it all went 😁

Thats so soo adorable kartik!! Suditi's mundan ceremony is due by september '18.. well we r also blank- donno how she will react.. but shaarav is a brave boy it seems 😀👌👏👏 congratulations on this major milestone 💐

Congratulations...Adorable pic's 😊

Lovely pics Karthik.. he enjoyed a lot it seems. Congratulations. Even you and Ur wife looks 👌

Lovely pics 👌👌

Oh nice... Even I m planning, but I m very much scared, bcoz my son don't sit in one place..

How did he react? Was he surprised or chilled out? Congratulations parents ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you so much everyone!

Sowmya Prithvi (sonu) Shaarav also doesn't stay still but he's very fond of his Nana and enjoys his company a lot...still he needed a bit of distraction and cajoling...😄

Prisha Lalwani (Mummasaurus) He didn't bother much...but now when he's asked show me your hair he shows his head and smiles...I think he feels very relaxed and light because since his mundan i have noticed that he has begun to sleep more peacefully and has grown more alert! Thanks!

Congratulations.. looks like it is a big ceremony at ur place.. in us, theirs no party or something.. we go to our isht dev ka temple n get the mundan done there, irrespective of girl or boy..

We made it a big event since he didn't have any ceremony from his paternal side...his chhatthi, annapraashan and birthday all were organized from his maternal side...though the occasion is a big deal and holds a special place in a child's life there's no compulsion to celebrate in a big or grand is totally a personal choice!

Finally got to see the pics... Lovely... You three look so perfect together... Shaarav is such a handsome dude... 😘

Thank you Sonam patel !
