The Sikh custom of males growing beards is being increasingly copied by non-Sikhs, and no wonder. These days it is impossible to buy a good electric shaver for the familiar old price of £15 or £20.
A shaver now costs around £100 or more (sorry, £99.99 or more). Wet shaves are also getting more expensive. This is why men of every community have taken to growing their own facial bushes.
