New Delhi. In a major decision taken by the government of India today, it was decided that it will distribute Philips Aquatouch electric shavers among barbers across the length and breadth of the country.
Although it might appear like a freebie aimed at attracting a vote bank, the government claims that the move is aimed at modernizing barbers, and thereby modernizing the society at large.
The decision was taken after news of a traditional Haryanvi barber becoming modern in his outlook after using Philips Aquatouch was widely reported:
Starting today government will set up various centers across the nation where barbers can come and collect the electric shavers.
When asked why start with modernizing barbers, a government representative said, “Barber shops are the best place to start anything if you want the fad to spread. When barbers speak, people have no option but to listen to them carefully.”
“So anything that we start at barber shops will automatically spread in society at large,” he added.
The representative claimed that India as country has remained socially backward due to orthodox thinking and it was very important that change agents adopt modern tools.
“Besides, we don’t want our countrymen to have cuts and bruises on their faces,” he further disclosed. “They are already having many problems, so we thought why not take away one of those problems and make it easy for them.”
Expectedly, barbers of the country have welcomed the free electric shavers.
“Achchhi shave hone wali hai, Modern din aane wale hain,” said a barber promising “shaving cuts mukt Bhaarat” if he gets a free Philips Aquatouch.
