Now I know there is already one side splitting-ly funny definition (Poori is vawesome!), but it is only making saanse for Mallu persons.

So I am here to describe and outline the other version of the great Indian headbath. The Northie variety. Specifically the Punju variety. Even more specifically the dry hair Punju variety.

You see, in Kerala the daily head bath and kawkanut oyll is very much a religion. But what about the North? There an individual's headbath frequency is determined by the hair type - oily hair means every two days headbath, normal hair means twice a week, and dry hair means only once a week headbath.

When I was a chunnumunnu, since I hail from a family of perrenially dry heads, the phamily kulchur meant Sunday ke Sunday was headbath day. After a lazy breakfast, the naariyal tel bottle ( translation : the ubiquitous Parachute coconut oil container) would see brisk action as copious amounts were applied on the scalp. (In the chilling winters you had to drop the bottle in some hot water to melt the opaque white mass that was the frozen version). Of course having dry hair and a dry scalp meant one's scalp soaked up all that oil like a desert cactus soaking up water in the monsoon.

If you were lucky enough and your mummy was in a nice mood, she'd give you a super champi head massage with the oil which left you feeling incredibly relaxed and at peace with all creation, even the sidey playground bully.

After an hour or so, you would lazily proceed to have your headbath and wash out almost all the oil from your scalp and hair with some nice smelling shampoo. Not all of it mind you, you had to leave a little bit while washing most of the oil out.

Then why did we put so much oil in the first place it if we washed it all out you ask? Conditioning beta, conditioning. There was no other way to condition dry hair in those days - conditioner was an unheard of product back then. If you didin't oil your hair before washing it, you would go to school the next day looking like a damn porcupine that got electrocuted. Seriously.

After exiting the bathroom, you would then proceed to thwack the dear life out of your hair with a towel to aid the drying process - if it was winter time you could pop out into the garden and enjoy the mild warmth of the hazy winter sun as your hair dried up. Hair dryers were a big no-no, air drying was all the vogue.

One major problem that my Southern pals rarely faced was the terrifying prospect of having headbath during the bone chilling North Indian winter. Bleddy the damn hot water bucket would somehow get over midbath, which left you the with the unappealing option of finishing the headbath with icy cold water or leaving the half rinsed out shampoo on your head. You cannot truly understand the Naarthie preference for hot water head bath till you have howled like a banshee with frigid Arctic water cascading mercilessly down your head and forming icicles on your bum, while the steam rose off your shivering limbs. Such teeth chattering horrors do not occur in sunny Kerala.


Usage

"Mummeeee it's too cold today I don't want to have headbath!"

"Nothing doing! You want to get lice? Chalo chalo get in the bathroom and wash your hair right now! Don't finish off all the hot water too quickly again"

Noun.

Definition

Desi designation for any place containing a small body of water of clearer than brackish water, a few rock boulders to sit on, and a small grove of trees nearby. This is the minimum requirement for a picnic spot. We urbanites living in noisy cities crave for such picinc spots where we can spread out with our tiffin carriers, have our puri bhaji or tair saadam (curd rice for the uninitiated), puliyogare (lemon rice) or parathas and spend a quiet afternoon with family and friends.

Usage

This Magod Falls is very nice I say. There are lots of picnic spots. Quick let us open up the tiffin carrier and have some puliyogare right here.
