Speaking to media persons at Tirumala on Thursday, the DyEO said, “Majority of devotees who throng Tirumala to have darshan of Lord Venkateswara consider it mandatory to offer their hair as a sign of total surrender to the Lord. In this context, a record number of devotees have tonsured their head during the ongoing Brahmotsavams since its commencement.”
