Hinduism religion

Hinduism religion in India it's one of the most popular religion with million of devotees. Every good Hindu, when a relative died, goes to Varanasi, the holiest city in India, to burn the dead body and put it bones into the Ganga river. The whole cremation it's guided by the entire family of the dead body, who have to look completely shaved. In fact in my portrait I show only one member of the family ( daughter), whose having her shave off. I remember the eyes of this child who who were conveying sorrow and sadness cause by the recent lost and the brutality of the impatient hairdresser.
