This causes lot of discomfort for the barber but still he tries to have a gentle haircut for him. During this adjustments, the barber trips off and by accidentally injures Manash. He asks for forgiveness, but manash is relentless. He is not willing to listen, he wanted the cutting free of cost and also asks the barber for a public apology. Barber is disgusted, as it was just because manash, this thing happened.
SWEEPER – On his way back to home, in a rush, he is busy on the cell phone, and was so lost in the telephonic conversation, that he forgets that he is moving across the area which a local sweeper is cleaning up with the broom. The accident strikes back.
