Ceremonial hair cut in Kataragama -Ariya

 

 

Took grand daughter Ariana for her maiden hair cut
Traditionally done in Kataragama on hallowed ground
Viscinity of the blessed Menik river on a chosen plot
We gathered while grand mother performned the act

While we were there for good measure
Ariya Joined a local ‘Kavadi dance, party
The beat of the drum was trendy
Even though my joints were creaky
