When the child starts walking for the first time we will have the tradition of making a special sweet known as Arisa in Telugu and distributing it to all the relatives and friends nearby and to the neighbours.
Then there will be a Programme called Puttuventrukalu. This is nothing but removing the hair on the head of the child for the first time. This programme will be carried out in nearby pilgrim centre or in the house itself. In some families, the removal of hair will be done by the uncle that is the brother of the mother. Generally, it will be performed before 1st birthday or after completing 2 years.
