From Haircuts To Tax Cuts

"For the first 10 months of my stay at Harvard, I had an allowance of seven dollars a day and that too to take care of my boarding, my food, my personal expenses, my Saturday dinner, my Sunday meals and therefore, what did I do? I gave up cutting my hair," he said at a function in Mumbai last night to launch the Harvard Business Review.

"I didn't go to a hair dresser for two years. I cut my hair only in the last week of my stay at Harvard, because, I was afraid, my mother would have been shocked to see my hair flowing down to my shoulder or even below," he said.

If the media can get hold of PC's snap during this period, it might be a collector's delight. I'm trying to imagine how such an hairstyle would have gone with the veshti PC wears these days.

  • Tough to visualize PC with a long hair.I thought with some ingenuity he could have started a inexpensive haircut business in Harvard dorm.

  • Do you believe student of a business school went to school with long hairs ? I think Chidambaram is exaggerating. A graduate student in US can survive with $1000 per month. As per Chidambaram, he got $210 per month when he was studying in Harvard. Compare the cost of living and inflation between 30 years back and now. He would have lived an average graduate life. He would have cut his hair every two months not after two years he mentions in his interview.

  • @Cogito,
    Even I thought so.

    @Anon,
    PC was in Harvard Law School. Difficult to believe that he remained without a haircut for 2 years. PC is a straightforward person and his batchmates will call it a bluff if he was really lying.
