    Hmm. At the current exchange rates the iconic haircut price of 25 cents would be about 16 rupees. But if you look up the historical value of silver and convert the grain rate to current price, “Two bits” works out to be $3.76 US in current dollars. So in the long run, you can still get a haircut in India for under two bits.

    You should have gone for Red thing, its called “Navratna”, its ayurvedic oil with cooling feel, as long as you can stand the strong fragrance. I am sure barber will be more than happy to have a foreigner visiting, his rate will jump soon.
