Yes, I do go to the barber for hair cuts, which means i obviously have hair on my head, though i have seen quite a few bald men visiting barbers. Maybe they go to him in remembrance of the time they had hair.
Moving on, a thing i have noticed is that barbers have the weirdest choice of movies and songs. The only thing that i feel they watch like normal people is a cricket match. For e.g. the only place i have ever heard the song TUM TOH THEHEREY PARDESI in the last 5 years is at the barber's shop. Today [28th Feb] i had another visit to my barber's shop. As i waited and he worked on my carefully grown and comber hair, i had to face the ordeal of watching a movie called Kiska Suhaag. Some crappy 80's movie with dialogues like 'haraamzaadey', 'dusht paapi' and so on and so forth. None of the customers liked it, but the barber was enjoying the show. Also the host of barbers-in-the-making types of people who you always see lurking around in the corner were enjoying the show a lot.
I guess barbers in that sense are arrogant, they have every right to be. Because they know for sure, that as long as you are alive and not bald, you just have to show up every now and then. Next time i visit a barber's shop i will pray that there's some match going on or else.... it's Altaaf Raja!!!
