When the money ran out, they realized that it was time to earn their own living.
At first, young residents of the state of Uttar Pradesh (India), who were then 13 and 11 years old, lived on savings. But when the money ran out, they realized that it was time to earn their own living.
The girls‘ father ran a barber shop and they started working there. But alas, male clients were dismissive of young employees, not understanding how girls can at least understand something in such a matter as men’s hairstyles and shaving.
It was then that Jyoti and Nehi changed their names to men’s, cut their hair short and began to wear men’s clothes, posing as brothers.
Of course, the villagers knew the secret. But the barbershop was visited by clients from other villages who had no idea who these young workers really were.
Of course, Jyoti and Nehi had to endure a lot of ridicule because of their “weirdness”. But they didn’t give up.
By the way, the clients are so pleased with their efforts that the girls have finally revealed their secret and are going to return to the female appearance.
The history of their selfless service to the family has become public. A government official personally met with the sisters to present them with an award.
As for the girls‘ father, he has only recently begun to get out of bed. But he still can’t work.
The man with tears in his eyes said that he was proud of his daughters and proud of them all these years.
