human hair ! ~ Bangladeshi cuts off wife's locks !!

In a Vijay movie ‘thirupachi’ – vijay would stealthily move into a neighbour’s house and cut the long hair of a girl, to please his sister who would pale in comparison !

Human hair is a protein filament that grows from follicles found in the dermis. Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals. The human body, apart from areas of glabrous skin, is covered in follicles which produce thick terminal and fine vellus hair. Hair is an important biomaterial primarily composed of protein, notably alpha-keratin.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… .. it perhaps not restricted to women alone.

Though uttered sometimes with disrespect – ‘hair’ is valued.  In the upmarket central London salon Inanch, a full head of Great Lengths extensions costs around £900, and lasts up to six months.  In many parts of the World,  hair is more than just a symbol: it is big business. From India to Peru, the human hair trade has spread across the globe, and it has the UK in its grasp.

Dustin Brown, is a Jamaican-German professional tennis player. He rose to fame after beating Rafael Nadal in the 2014 Halle Open and Wimbledon 2015, and is known for his technique, speed and entertaining playing style, often entertaining the crowd with trick shots during matches.

A couple of  years ago,  couple of incidents made the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office investigate – it was the  second call of stolen horse hair.   A homeowner at  West Raymond Road told deputies someone had cut off half of the tails of two of his horses. While most people worry about being mugged for their phones or handbags, criminals in the Venezuelan city of Maracaibo have their sights set on something a little more unusual, reported Venezuelan digital newspaper Informe 21. According to  news sources, a gang known as the 'piranhas' was stealing women’s hair at gun point and then sell them to salons for use as hair extensions.   Robbers targetted women with long, straight hair as this type is most in demand for extensions.

If you thought Venezuela is bad – Human hair worth around Rs 10 lakh was stolen from the premises of the famous Sri Varaha Lakshmi NarasimhaSwamy Temple at Simhachalam, newspapers stated.Unidentified persons stole 10 bags of "special grade" human hair valued at around Rs 10 lakh from the temple at Simhachalam, they said.  Like the most sacred Thirumala, at Simhachalam too, devotees tonsure their head and offer their hair.  At Simhachalam, staff  of KeshKandanaSala (tonsuring centre) of the temple collect the hair and segregate them as per length and quality, which is then auctioned.  The temple EO was quoted as saying 15 bags containing "special grade" human hair were stored in a room near the KeshKandanaSala of which 10 bags were stolen. The thieves reportedly  entered the store room of the temple, from the terrace using a rope. They cut the grille door on the terrace to enter the first floor and then unscrewed the pivot to gain entry into the store room, temple sources said.

.. .. but this one read in MailOnline is more weird  ~  ‘Bangladesh Man Cuts Off Wife's Locks After Finding A Strand Of Hair In His Breakfast, Arrested’!

It was reported that in a tragic turn of events, a man from Bangladesh forcibly shaved his wife’s head after finding a hair in his breakfast. The man was arrested. Meanwhile, rights groups warned violence against women was rising in the conservative Muslim nation.  Police raided a village in the northwestern district of Joypurhat and arrested Bablu Mondal, after villagers told officers about the incident. "He found a human hair on the rice and milk breakfast his wife prepared for him," local police chief Shahriar Khan told AFP." He became angry seeing the hair and blamed the wife. He then took a blade and forcibly shaved the head of the wife," he said. Khan said Bablu was charged with ‘voluntarily causing grievous hurt’. The offence carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in jail and also for ‘outraging modesty’ of his 23-year-old wife.

The incident highlights growing repression of women in Bangladesh and all the conservative Muslim nations. According to the local rights group Ain O Salish Kendra, there were an average three rapes a day in the first six months of the year. In another tragic incident, a 26-year-old man divorced his 23-year-old wife. He went to the rooftop and shouted triple talaq because she could not fulfill his demand for dowry.
