    It is a small village. A main road goes from north to south. The village is surrounded by woods.
    At the northern end of the road there is a saloon with barber named N. He is having a very bad hair style, bushy and shabby.
    At the southern end of the road there is a saloon with barber named S. His hair style is very good, neat and nice.
    The village has only these two saloons.
    N is always busy with so many customers whereas S is having only one or two customers , even though his hair style is excellent.
    Why this anamoly?

    Because N is so busy with his work and not finding time to groom himself :)

    Because N is groomed by S and vice versa. S looks good because N is a good barber while N looks bad because S is not as good as N.

    " It is a small village .....surrounded by woods.... The village has only these two saloons. "
    .....Hence all the villagers will go either to the barber N. Or to the barber S . O.K.?
    THE BARBER N , even though he has a bushy shabby hair dress , would have gone to the barber S , who is the cause of the bad hair grooming of barber N . Hence most of the villagers avoid barber S.
    Similarly barber S would have gone to barber N for hair cut and gets a neat grooming of hair . Hence most of the villagers like barber N and that is the reason for the crowd in the saloon of barber N.
    Am I clear ?
