Barbers?

Barbers / Midwives

What's interesting there is how the idea of barbers being medics wasn't just common in medieval England and throughout mainland Europe but was also a thing in medieval India. I say "interesting" but of course I am only too aware that I'm the only one here that finds it even mildly interesting.

bro hell of a difference between naayii  barber and daayii midwife .... plus vaid were usually considered the medic rather than the naayii unless you were 'low' caste then probably you would be told to go to naayii

I dug out an old dharmac geet about the birth of 1st Guru Ji to ensure I hadn't misheard the lyrics about the midwife who delivered Guru Sahib. It's definitely daayi.

Perhaps they use to moonlight back in those days? Times were tough. 😁

I think perhaps you misheard no self-respecting woman would be showing herself to a bloke ... always female Daayii or family member.

JkvLondon and MisterSingh….brother and sister..I gave you a clue in my message....I told you how throughout the backward medieval world on which this backward medieval thinking backward  'caste' system is based barbers were, because they had cutting instruments in their hands, brain surgeons, heart surgeons and general surgeons in England, mainland Europe and central Asia but were nothing but barbers -  because women cutting their hair in India was the equivalent of death - who's wives were midwives in medieval India which was, at that time, 1000 years ahead of the entire world in terms of civilisation. 'D'...'t'....you say potatos I say tomartos. Go on a Google battle with me. Raise your D against my N. See who wins.
