A kid undergoing his first 'Mundan ceremony'

As per the custom the first 'Mundan ceremony' of a boy is considered to be auspicious if done at a holy place and accordingly the kid was being given a hair shave. He certainly did not like the idea and was protesting at the top of his voice. Relatives and his little sister held his hands and legs tightly and someone was recording the whole thing on a mobile.
