Despite the many air conditioned hair salons there are several who enjoy the fresh air like this red haired gentleman getting a clean shave.
Incidentally, did you know that many an Indian man doesn’t shave himself, preferring to get it done by the village barber ?
It was no wonder then that the village barber also doubled up as a matchmaker. Yes, this was one of his side businesses- scoping out potential grooms and brides as he went from home to home cutting hair and collecting information.
And it is not surprising either that despite its modernity, Mumbai still has a village barber !
