Some Hindus shave their heads as an act of mourning for the death of an elder. The idea is to keep the person humble by removing a source of vanity: the hair. I have been strongly considering shaving away my beard. My beard means everything to me, in that it is the only physical beauty I feel I possess, so if I am to do something like this, my beard is the thing to go. But also, I am not a Hindu and I am not religious whatsoever, so why? Except, to do something to physically remind myself of the grieving process. Still on the fence, though; maybe I'll make an actual decision w/r/t this tonight.
