Mangaluru: Two and a half year old Arnav from Mangaluru has joined hands in the task of wiping the tears of those who lose their hair during cancer treatment. His Chaulopanayana, a ceremony of cutting the hair of a child for the first time as per tradition in the GSB community was conducted in a unique way by his parents Ashwin Prabhu and Shreelatha Prabhu, residents of Mannagudda.

Instead of offering the scissored hair to the Homa Kunda as per tradition, the parents of Arnav have donated the hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths which prepares wigs for cancer patients. As per the rules of the company the hair of a donor need to be of minimum 8 inch long, while Arnav’s hair measured nearly 10 inches.

The donors also have an option to suggest to donate the wigs to any nation and Arnav’s parents have requested Pantene Beautiful Lengths that the wig prepared out of his hair be donated to cancer patients in India.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths has also confirmed that Arnav is the youngest to donate hair to them, informed Arnav’s parents.
