Hinduism in India is one of the most popular religion with million of devotees. Every good Hindu, when a relative dies, goes to Varanasi, the holiest city in India, to burn the body and place the bones into the Ganga river. The whole cremation is guided by the entire family, who have to be completely shaved. In my portrait I show only one member of the family (daughter), who is having her head shaved. I remember the eyes of this child conveying sorrow and sadness caused by the recent loss and the brutality of the impatient hairdresser.
