Tonsure In The Barber

Man taking tonsure

The barber was shaving

Shot in the city of Murshidabad, India.

There was a small barber by the roadside. And a customer was sitting on the chair and the barber was working. Even though I held my camera, the barber didn't stop working. He kept shaving a man's head in a workmanlike manner. It became shining bald head in a moment. Yet the mustache was remained under his nose. Maybe it would be shaved after finishing the tonsure.

By the way, it was impossible to shampoo in the barber in this country. There were no equipments for shampooing usually.
