The Medicinal Plant Outside Barber Shops.
It's an old Indian tradition. To have a pot of this plant species that is supposed to have antiseptic qualities, outside barber shops. In small towns and in older barber shops in cities you can still find them like in this shop in Vashi. The barber told me that he has taken care of it for 15 years. But it's not used now. Meanwhile in Bangalore, they usually plant them in old battery boxes.
