Do Indian girls keep long hair because of society

Hello friends,
My mom always had long hair until recently. She had a wish to get a short haircut sometime. When she told this to dad, dad not just encouraged her but also took her to salon and got her a short haircut!!
When mom returned there was all hue and cry about my moms hair everywhere. Among all gossip aunties, all the people in our colony, my relatives and even my friends.
I have seen many a times that people consider girls with short hair as modern or liberal and all the traditional bahus would always have long flowing hair. Is this just a norm set by society. I am sure there would be many women in India who would like to get short haircuts but are not getting because of the usual reason

What will the society say

I dont understand why society would have a problem with short hair.
What do you guys think about this? Please let me know your opinion or any personal experience you have similar to what i have. I would love to hear everyones opinion on this.

New Update to this post:
