long attractive hair ; hair-do - of women and Malinga

In olden days, traditionally, women used to sport long hair; school girls would have double plait, a complex pattern formed by intertwining three or more strands hair and wearing dhavani ~ half-sarees !!~ not any longer..!! ~ no point in discussing whether the hair possesses natural fragrance…

Slinga Malinga – is adored by many……… the Srilankan fast bowler is unique… Separamadu Lasith Malinga, bowls fast straight, toe-crushers and it unplayable in the dead. He is the first and only bowler in the world to have two World Cup hat-tricks, the first and only bowler to have taken three hat-tricks in ODIs and he is also the first, and currently the only, player to have taken four wickets in four consecutive balls in any form of international cricket.  He has since retired from Test but still plays One dayers and T20s.  Some [that includes many batsmen] are bemused by his bowling style.. 
~ and Lasith has the most unusual and uncomman hair style in the world.  Remember seeing him with ordinary hair style in his initial days sporting whites……. ~ as years rolled by, his hair-do also started garnering more attraction……. appears pretty difficult to be maintained…..still

Aside, read this news report in Daily Mail of a Chinese woman, 44, so addicted to her hair that she hasn't cut her 6ft 7in locks in 11 years ~  and standing just 5ft tall, her tresses are longer than she is.  Her name is given as Cen Yingyuan living in Guigang, in the Guangxi Province.  The news states that she collects every strand that falls out - around 50g hair a year; it takes over an hour to wash and a day and a half to dry; she has had offers of up to £2,000 for her locks and lastly the claim that if she ever found a grey hair, she says she would dye all her hair white

Interesting to read the story of 44-year-old Cen Yingyuan who stands 5ft feet in height; but has 6ft 7in long hair uncut for the past 11 years.  So,  long hair would trail her on the floor unless she ties up her tresses. Unsurprising every time Cen goes out she and her hair attract a lot of attention from passers by, but Cen is proud of her unusual 'do'.  Cen said many people have offered to buy her hair, and the highest amount she has ever been offered was 20,000 Yuan (£2,000). Cen takes good care of her hair and is proud that there is no grey. ‘If the hair started to turn grey, I'll dye it all white, making myself have another look.’ However, Cen's long hair does come with disadvantages as it takes her over an hour to wash and then half a day to dry. 

The trick to keeping such a vast amount of hair shiny, according to Cen, is to rinse it with a bottle of beer. She is unable to wash it in a shower or bath due to its extreme length and is forced to bend over a bucket. And Cen is not alone in being obsessed with growing her hair. The Red Yao women, a minority ethnic group from Huangluo Yao Village in China, have an average hair length of 5.5 feet with the longest locks measure more than 6.8 feet. Incredibly, the women cut their hair only once in their lives, at 16 years old, before they start their search for a husband, as they believe a woman long hair brings longevity, wealth and good fortune.

Many women on reading this might feel too  envious…….

Away from this, here is a photo of a cute Vaishnavaite boy – a photo taken in a religious congregation at Thirumala Tirupathi yesterday…..
