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! 🙂

Cartoonist's Confessions

Hei guys .. I feel, I should have informed prior to publishing the post . Last night I got emotional after gulping few pegs and the hangover continued till the afternoon. In between the keyboard of the machine kept making noise and ended up producing the things( i dont know what to name these lines) below which you may avoid reading , if you wish to …  🙂  . I cant remove it as its too late and I apologize sincerely for the terrible act of a drunk doodler , in advance  🙂

Go Ahead..All the Best…

Those who can write;give a sarcastic smile.
Surely not all but few with ego, fragile.
Embraced by many, rejected by few
a struggling doodler and a cartoonist,new.
Not old to the blogging world
where they play with words and rhymes.
Where they narrate an entire life,
in few words and few lines.
All I have is praise and praise
and only good words for them..
and appreciations for many who capture places
and click passing-by time, in frame.
Good words for some who talk politics,
evaluate governance and voting statistics.
Less are not, who know the net almost inside out.
Be it google or facebook,they answer each and every doubt.
Talents floating on the internet,
they all know their niche.
Standing amid these talented fellows
is a novice Cartoonist.
Limited vocabulary and limited knowledge
to talk about sky or cow,
to click the beauty of mother nature
or discuss technical know-how.
All I know is to draw few shapes..
resembling human,resembling grapes.
Shapes which speak for the mango people
about life and its narrow escapes.

I thank you all, who accepted me,
with full heart, half and no.

Now, to the few talented and intellectuals
for whom I am a singing crow,
I promise to win your hearts as-well,
give me a chance to grow!
For spreading humor and smiles
that’s what I learnt out of life
and that’s what I try to do..
promoting virus of humor and love.
For I know it spreads like flu.

With Love
