Long Hair-My Guru!

Why I grew them?
well it was my childhood fantasy to look like Arjun Rampal 🙂 So what if I did not look that handsome.I could grow hair as long as his. Then came Rockstar ( the movie ) and this time I wanted my hair that long. 🙂
Why not ever before?
Parents,siblings,beloved,friends, the society as a whole.. Someone always had something to say when they would see my hair a little longer than usual and instigate me to change my mind.
How long will I keep them?
Till my learning is over.till I am sure, I will follow religiously what i have learnt from my guru.
Learn?? !! You kidding me??You got a guru who asked you to grow hair?
No.I ain’t! 🙂
You learnt??What did you learn growing your hair this long?
I learnt :

Patience-it takes a lot of it while drying them rubbing with the towel everyday after taking a bath and then untangling them with comb.And I find,I am being more patient toward everyone and everything,rather than reacting in anger or frustration.Helps developing relationship.

Control on Anger- trust me!anger exploded initially, after I would come out from bath.5 mins and above rubbing the towel on my head and then combing the hair for good 10 mins to untangle.Choice was simple- either I quit or do this everyday.I chose the second and once I stopped being frustrated and angry,I started taking lesser time drying my hair and then untangling and combing them.Slowly,I applied controlling anger with people around and rather apply brains and get things done faster.It works miracles.

Concentration– that’s something I learnt only recently.Taming your wet hair everyday from drying them to slowly untangling and then back-brushing takes 100 percent concentration.You just cannot do without it if you really want to save time and peace of mind and bit of knotted-hair which you would ideally intend plucking off,every time you comb.I somehow,noticed I have developed the ability to concentrate at whatever I am doing any given moment.This is giving  me better output everywhere.

Discipline-I am lot more disciplined now.No more getting ready in haste.I know my hair would take time hence I pre-schedule my bathing time and accordingly everything else.Slowly, I have realized I love being disciplined , on time, and proper. With long hair,you just cannot take things casual.No more,just a boy who can put a pair of jeans and t-shirt on and spray the deodorant around put the shoes on and leave,anytime!

Sense of Achievement-Some compliment,some call me a rockstar, some also stare and many have an issue(as i mentioned in my previous post) but I feel I have achieved what I wanted to since childhood.How many times,I had to give up on my wish because of social norms which is inspired by the Brits.Two years of not getting a hair cut done simply means” when you gotta go… you gotta go !! ”  🙂

Self Respect-I respect myself for being able to do what I always wanted to despite unhealthy criticisms. It means I can do bigger and better things whenever I want to.And now,I know how to do so. Sky is the limit.

Respect for others– I don’t make fun of people who have differently trimmed beard or hairstyle or have nose or lips pierced or tattooed,anymore.I learnt,they had the guts to break unwanted social rules which seem to have restricted ‘gentleman-ship’ in attire and accessories.But its within.Shirt and Trousers,short haircut or pierced ears and tattooed hands don’t define how gentle or wild a man is. These are just: statement of lifestyle-my life my style.

I have got the Guru-By the blessings of my long hair- the guru  🙂  ,I have evolved as a person who can take healthy criticism and avoid unhealthy ones without getting angry.I am at peace with myself and I have a sense of belief that what I want , I can make happen. I have learnt respecting human beings around,no matter,how different they look,behave or believe.My love for my country’s culture,fashion and style-sense pre – East India Company has doubled, when men had long hair and wore ornaments like women and were lot more gentle than the ones in trousers and shirts working for our x-masters. 🙂

what about beard ?

They are just to compliment the long hair!Not everyone will read this post.Some may seriously consider me a man with odd preferences. I am straight! 🙂

Mulayam not even fit to sweep PM house-Beni Prasad

Union Minister,Beni Prasad,who was once great friends with SP head,Mulayam Singh Yadav, has again made a controversial statement against him saying SP is dreaming to become the PM but they are not even fit to sweep PM’s residence.The Congress spokesperson has declared this may be Beni’s personal view and not Congress’ .

SP with 21 MPs matters a lot for the UPA govt after TMC and DMK has left the alliance and Beni Prasad’s repeated attack on SP may surely turn things worse between Congress and SP.Point is,do these elderly leaders really make such comments out of frustration or are these just part of some political plan and strategy ?

In the recent past,Beni Prasad had regretted his statement where he had claimed Mulayam Singh is friendly with terrorists.

Congress BJP tweet fight

The Congress and the BJP has been trying to get political mileage and playing blame-games on the Uttarakhand flood tragedy.The fight has taken a bitter shape on the social media site twitter,where both the parties seem to be in a tweet war. NDTV’s article on these angry tweets compiled together shows how both the parties of the nation got involved in explanations and arguments on twitter.

Previously, Congress had taken a dig on Modi by calling him a Rambo when the news spread that Modi came and rescued 15000 people from his state who were stuck in the Uttarakhand flood. To this , the BJP had responded by saying –its better to be  a Rambo than  a Dumbo or a Scambo

BJP-better to be Rambo than Dumbo or Scambo

Meenaskshi Lekhi,BJP spokesperson took a dig at the Congress for mocking Gujarat CM Narendra  Modi as ‘Rambo’, and said it was better to be a ‘Rambo’ than a ‘Dumbo’ or a ‘Scambo’. 😀

Dumbo ? Scambo ?  😀 😀 😀

Previously,it was the congress who took dig at Narendra Modi,by indirectly referring him as Rambo when rumors spread that  Modi saved 15000 Gujarat resident from flood-hit zone of Uttarakhand.

who is she referring to ?

Modi listens to presentation on 2002 riots

Syed Zafar Mahmood , a renowned critic of Gujarat Chief Minister,Narendra Modi,presented a slide show at the Young Indian Leaders Conclave, touching upon various aspects of problems being faced by Muslims and the 2002 riots, in front of the Gujarat CM and said he was happy that his views were taken in stride. His presentation was to explain why is the Muslim Community of the country heavy-hearted with BJP and Modi. Modi assured to consider the issues presented.

The ghost of 2002 Gujarat riots has haunted Modi since a decade now. And it is the same ghost which has become a major threat for him to even think about the Prime Ministerial post.Convincing the Muslim Community to ease themselves against him is the only way out. After all,the path to Delhi can never be set without the support of  the major Minorities.

Sufferings of a long-haired Indian male

I don’t know that well about the West but I’m sure men with long hair is not that big an issue.In India it indeed is(unless you are in a saintly  group enchanting God’s name and in a Saffron or White attire 😉 ). Its about to be 2 years since I had my last hair-cut done. Ok ! Chill!!  🙂

I know its not normal, at least , for an Indian male.In fact, who better than me would know that. Breaking the shackles of Indian society ain’t easy- a dialogue people may love from an Indian female.Right ?

And if you think Indian male can do whatever they like,you are absolutely wrong. With my hair growing below shoulders,I drive unwanted attention everywhere , no matter, I go anywhere or anyone invades my dwelling.

I would love to show what you go through when you break Indian social norms as a male and would love your feedback.

In my next post , I will surely give my reasons of growing long hair and keeping a trim beard  even at the cost of all the pain, I go through,everyday. 🙂
