In search of the Italian salonAt last, I found it! Of course not without the help of a few local people. Members, the Italian salon is here in India only and if you wish you can search it in Google to find its exact location. Wait! You may have already found the address of that Italian salon but don't visit there until you finish reading this thread.
In the bylanes of Kolkata and its suburbs, you will find barbers sitting under a tree by placing the mirror to its trunk and cutting the hairs of the clients. It's a good one where you will get the fresh air, never mind the bird droppings, and the barber will continuously chat with you to keep you in good humour. Even you can find barbers there standing in front of an electric post by fixing a mirror on it and doing their jobs.
Many years ago, I went to visit one of my relatives staying in the outskirts of Kolkata. There I liked the hairstyle of his little son and asked him from where he got his hair cut. He replied with a big smile that it was the Italian salon inside the market. I went to the market in the evening and started looking for that Italian hairdresser. I searched for a while but never found such a shop there. I asked a few local people they couldn't help. After some time again I asked a group of young men and they started laughing at me and explained it. In Bengali, the brick is called 'It' (pronounced like that). They told me a barber sits under a tree there and the customers sit on a few bricks arranged like a stack. Since the customers sit on bricks ('it' in Bengali) the salon became an Italian one. Well, at that time the Italian salon was not open, otherwise, I could have tried a haircut there.
