A private school in Meerut city of Uttar Pradesh on Thursday allegedly issued a diktat to its students to sport ‘Yogi-style’ haircut, raising the concerns of shocked parents who protested. But more worried are the retail counters of Patanjali products as the shampoo and oil sales have reached an all time low.
Rishabh Academy School in Sadar area had warned students they will not be allowed to attend school till they got the buzz haircut, akin to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s. Parents are worried that witha similar haircut, it will be difficult for them to distinguish between their children and their neighbor’s children. The Patanjali traders who were selling a lot of Shampoo and oil products will now face a slump in business and it is evident from the sales of past week as to how tough business will be in coming days.
Our Faking News reporter caught up with one such trader named Sanil Srivastava who had this to say, ” People have a great trust in Patanjali products because of its authenticity and purity. But with such decisions how will we sell our products to the school going kids. Ramdev ji is trying to inculcate the culture of Ayurveda in the modern Indian students, and these schools are going against Ramdev ji in working for a good cause. We condemn the decision and want to convey it to the schools that look at Einstein, his hairs were long and thick and he was a genious. It would be better if students get that haircut. That way, they will become genious and our sales will also increase.”
Yogiji has not commented on the issue but there is a rumor that Ramdev Baba will meet Yogiji soon to convince him to stop such diktats. Now it is a matter of great curiosity whether Yogiji will let go his personal esteem in helping out Ramdev’s business interest.
