When Saleem is getting a hair cut and shave, the prices on the price list are extremely high; 6 Rupees for full shave and 10 Rupees for a hair cut. Considering this happened in 1977, a person living in a ghetto could never afford that. The average salary of a Government clerical position in those days was around 200 Rupees a month and a person living in a ghetto would not have made more than 100 Rupees a month, and Saleem had just come out of prison too.
