A lone spa girl from Delhi’s famous Kashiwada neighborhood has been hailed as a hero after she helped a couple of strangers wash their hair and skin at a spa.
Ravi Zacharias and his wife Sangeeta Sharma went to a spa in the nearby town of Tandamangalam to get a hair treatment on Thursday.
The couple had just washed their hair when the masseuse showed them a mirror and asked them to put on their hair.
The masseuse then asked them if they were comfortable with their hair done that way, and the couple agreed.
The masseuse took the couple’s hands and told them to brush their hair before they washed their faces.
Afterward, the couple went back to the spa, where Zacharials masseuse explained the importance of proper hygiene.
He also told the couple that the spa has a ‘beautiful’ bathroom.
“After the wash, we washed our hands, then put on our clothes.
We washed our faces, then we washed again and went to the washroom.
I asked him if we were comfortable, and he said yes.
I felt so proud,” Zacharis wife said.”
I told him that I feel happy, that we have done so much for him and that he should feel happy too,” she added.
A post shared by Ravi Zacharis (@rizyzzacharis) on Mar 10, 2018 at 3:34pm PDTRavi was inspired to start the blog because he saw a few pictures of people washing their hands at a Kashiwalas spa.
“This was my first time at a kashiwala and I had no idea what to expect,” he told The Hindu.
The salon has been serving the Kashiwaas people for more than 50 years.
“We were very surprised to find out that a single woman was cleaning their own hair.
There is a huge community of people who go to kashiwadas for this, and I was curious to know how she did it.
I decided to start a blog because I felt the same way,” he said.
Zachari, who also goes by the name Ravi Vaidyanathan, said he is grateful to be able to share his story and help people.
“In my life, I have experienced the joys and the pain of this process, but I was so moved by the kindness and support of people.
I want to show them that it is possible for them too to wash their own hands,” he added.
