No Shave, No Lipstick…the new dating mantra

Not sure how many of you have noticed the ongoing “No Shave, No Lipstick” movement in the media. Well it’s actually a daring ad campaign smartly tagged as ‘Movement’ for the new Gillette shaving blades.

Well,  to decode the ‘Movement’ as stated in the advertorial, it’s all about how women consider men to be undesirable, uncool and as per some extreme comments less trustworthy, if they are with a stubble!

And all this research by AC Nielsen with a record-breaking massive sample set of 150 women in few metros! That’s it..well that’s why it’s called a Sample set.

This is a dreadful statistics for all the Lipstick companies. Behind every unshaven man, there will the one or may be many (could vary in some case I believe) women; who are committed not to use their most preferred  weapon from their vanity box, the Lipstick.

Thank god that I am married by now. So no imminent threat with my weekend stubble.  But yes, for all the bachelor men out there, you better take this seriously.

Looking forward to some FB posts as follows.

College Beat

It all started in an admission queue,

When you were alone in a world that was new.

You were scared and anxious,

But determined to make a new beginning and quite curious.

You came across a person, interesting who seemed,

Who made you comfortable and you regained your self-esteem.

Bullied by the peons, and ragged by the seniors,

You felt very embarrassed, and made to feel inferior.

But soon, you made new friends ,

and a group was formed to set new trends.

As  a regular bunker to a default defaulter,

You topped the charts as a black lister.

From college canteen, to outside gutter,

It was your empire shabby no matter.

Then came the first friendship day,

With a number of friendship bands with you at the end of the day.

After a lots of crushes,

And your dreams reduced to ashes.

One fine day you found a soul mate,

And tried hard with all your might, knowing not what was in fate.

And days passed by and so did years,

You could not believe it was the end of your five years.

A time to say goodbye to your old buddies.

And slog pretty harder with your studies.

A time to farewell the bygone days of share and care,

And step into the mean world with a dare.

A time to ponder upon your memories,

And make every attempt to cherish.

But departing won’t part our souls,

Our times together shall unit our souls.

This poem was written in 1999. Now when I look back, it still brings back some fond memories during the college days.
