I have been asking a lot of questions since we arrived in India. Questions about customs and questions about life. As we have been out and about I have noticed that many women have their heads covered. Naturally I was curious as to why. I assumed that for some it was not strictly for religious purposes and that assumption was correct.
some women may cover up because of the smog from all the traffic...
While others may cover up to escape the prying eyes of "aunties" who might see them out with a male friend.
No matter the reason for covering it is fascinating to witness the ingenuity of women. From protecting their hair to protecting their identity...women around the world are clever enough to figure out what works best for them!
