Guess who?

-He had 'lauki'(bottle gourd ) ka juice in the morning, and just one cup of tea at 3 PM, and he's feeling totally fit n fine.

-He has not had his cholestrol and BP medication since morning and won't take it today, courtesy the lauki ka juice.

-He walks home every evening-it's a 20 mins walk. He stays at..... Society in Karelibaug.

-His regular customers include ex-Professors(who also used to teach me) from the Engg Faculty.

-Once people get used to his style, they always return to him only.

-He has just filled the AIEEE form for his son, and got a DD from the bank...he was running around for 1/2 a day for this.

-He is a Paanchvi Kaksha Pass, but, he wants his next generation to be educated, hence the AIEEE forms.

-His son is a Xth Standard 95 Percent-er.

-A friend of his owns Hotel Gokul in the city, and his son got a rank in AIEEE last year.

-His friend told him to pick up the reference books from his home anytime.

-He advised me too, to try lauki ka juice in the morning.

-He still has a Bajaj two-wheeler, but his feet no longer allow him to do the necessary kicking. He got an Activa, but, usually his son uses it to go to classes, etc. He uses it himself sometimes.

-He was originally settled in Thane, Mumbai. But moved to Baroda 15 years back.

-Since then, he has settled down with this line of work.

-His son doesn't like to visit here much.

-Assistants are hard to come by. Those who come, stay for a few days and then go away.

Any guesses who this guy is? The friendly neighbourhood barber. And, all this talk came courtesy one word from me 'Achcha'- uttered when he said he had Lauki Ka juice in the morning. HE was so enthused about it, he kept repeating it throughout.

I'm a good listener, I guess...:)
