The philosopher barber of Green Park.

Devendra Kumar is my roadside barber in Green Park, New Delhi,  and he's incredibly kind. He gets me incessant cups of chai while cutting my hair or trimming my beard, not in the least bit bothered about other people waiting in line, but only eager to give me the best experience while sitting on that chair. Today he held my hand and read my palm while sipping our chai, talking about hope and trust with his kind eyes. The last time we delved into spirituality and he told me whom he thought God was. Bhagavan:- Bh for Bhoomi- earth, Ga for Gagan- ether, Va for Vayu- wind, Aa for Agni- fire and Na for Neer- Water. That's the God and religion I subscribe to.
