On the birth of a child in a family the Maulvi is called for who utters Azan in the child’s ears, receiving a small present. After a week the child’s head is shaved by the barber. The child is usually named by the head of the family, food and sweets are distributed and the barber and other menials are given small presents at this juncture. The usages are the same on the birth of both boys and girls but the re-joicings are much greater on the birth of the former. Boys are usually circumcised by the barber after some days. People also get their boys circumcised from the qualified doctors. Food and sweets are also served at this occasion
