Have you ever tried to have a Haircut by yourself?Members,
Men can have a clean shave by themselves with the help of a razor with a sharp blade by standing in front of the mirror. But it is not possible to have their haircut by themselves with or without a mirror. It is an herculian task, I must say.
Have you ever tried to have a haircut by yourself?
I just happened to read Mahatma Gandhi's 'My experiment with Truth. In that, he has narrated his experience of having his hair cut by himself.
QUOTE "All people who go to England learn there at least the art of shaving, but none, to my knowledge, learn to cut their own hair. I had to learn that too. I once went to an English hair-cutter in Pretoria. He contemptuously refused to cut my hair. I certainly felt hurt, but immediately purchased a pair of clippers and cut my hair before the mirror. I succeeded more or less in cutting the front hair, but I spoiled the back. The friends in the court shook with laughter.
'What's wrong with your hair, Gandhi? Rats have been at it?'
'No. The white barber would not condescend to touch my black hair,' said I, 'so I preferred to cut it myself, no matter how badly.'
The reply did not surprise the friends.
The barber was not at fault in having refused to cut my hair. There was every chance of his losing his custom if he should serve black men. We do not allow our barbers to serve our untouchable brethren. I got the reward of this in South Africa, not once, but many times, and the conviction that it was the punishment for our own sins saved me from becoming angry."
