Sriprakash Jaiswal at work Posted by Irfan Khan / February 27, 2012 / Leave a comment Share this: September 7, 2011 Venkateswaran T K You may call the place as saloon or salon but be certain that the professional is a barber and period. No more words to argue. To give you the right perspective , a bridge behind the present Police Inspector General Office in Chennai was known as “Hamilton Bridge” and the locals easily called it “Ambattan Varavathi” and with time this got rechristened as “Barbers Bridge” all in 20th century. Alas, this bridge is presently given a tamil name as part of Renaming spree. The distinguishing feature of the barber will be remembered for ever as a metallic cup of a particular shape and size and was used by barber also to make music. Up to 1960s and 1970s , the school kids used to blame the barbers for the angry moods of their male teachers as aftershave lotions were unheard of. Leave a comment Click here to cancel reply.
