Signs of maturity …wow!!!
The buffalo which blocked the traffic today on our way near the Secret Lake….had a whiff of white hair on its forehead ….it looked more like a cobra cut as my ex school principal liked to put it ….for the fringes we had cut to be fashionable much to the angst of the school authorities….
Does that white hair if I could call it hair be a sign of old age? I wonder if I then had an encounter with a Grandfather Buffalo this morning that has been living a long life and has many grand children.
Well for all I know it could be the effect of the water in the city that could be turning their hair white.
The hair dye industry in the city of Hyderabad is a very prosperous one. The water makes it mandatory for all the young professionals here to make use of the hair colour. Fashionable without giving it a thought, I guess with the different hair colour other than white, fashionable by a force or a law of nature.
I had a Prof in my university who had white hair, most of it …and she never bothered to paint it yellow orange or blue or green for that matter. She just let it be the way it was…..…..it was odd to see somebody as young as this lady with an casual attitude to hair colour like that…..she believed in being different I guess…
She is an exception but the rest of the non Hyderabadis are not….they do get nightmares regarding their beautiful which falls, whitens and softens within a matter of minutes and hours of a bath in the city municipal water.
Of course like the saying goes ….a coin has two sides…….
The positives for a change ….
Lack of hair and white hair …..Sign of maturity…20 some mature adults that should be an honor, I guess to be…should be like Steffi felt when she won her junior Wimbledon crown in 1980s.
Less hair means less care…….no unnecessary expenditure sessions at the Beauty parlor…and of course no more such sessions on our hairstyles …
Maybe all of you could add on for the lack of melanin in our body and our flirtings with hard water in our work cities…..
Good day ….
