It would have been easier to keep entire head shaved. I saw below video where a sadhvi keeps a small choti: April 21, 2019 at 4:02 pm #10021 yogeshParticipant No idea why they used to do it. But i wonder, dis even females had their head shaved and the shikha at the centre of hair was really long, like chanakya…. How Would that look.
