Hair raising

Thousands of faithful in Myanmar have donated 800 kilograms of their hair in a money-raising campaign to repair the route to a sacred Buddhist pagoda, reports said yesterday. About 30,000 women and more than 100 long-haired men from the central city of Mandalay and nearby towns have donated the hair, Kumudra magazine quoted a Buddhist monk as saying. The campaign will use proceeds from the sale of hair to repair sections of a road and build bridges leading to the popular pilgrimage site. The hair will be used in wigs or dolls.
