His bravado apart, Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Abhinandan Varthaman’s blossom beard – a combination of a lean mutton blossom beard, a traditional gunslinger or a franz-josef – has come to be the talk of town. It may not be too long until it becomes a tendency among people, say experts.
“it’s not going to be wrong to say the blossom sported by the IAF pilot will undoubtedly be called India’s very own Abhinandan model,” Darshan Yewalekar, personal hairstylist to actor Ranveer Singh and owner of D Shave Barbershop, told IANS.
Abhinandan, an IAF Wing Commander, returned to India on Friday night, two days after he was seized by Pakistan after his MIG21 crashed in that nation.
Subsequent to the conclusion of this nail biting drama over his return, Twitterati have finally got a opportunity to mull over his distinctive moustache. For generations altogether, Army and Air Force personnel are particular concerning flaunting a well-groomed moustache or beard plus it’s part of their sub-culture.
“It tells a lot of the soldier’s and the official’s individuality. It is like an expression of their character and they wear it with pride,” Yewalekar explained.
The habit of sporting a distinguishing moustaches is well engrained in the Indian mind, using a saying for great shame based on the position of moustache recommendations.
A moustache is viewed as an essential part of masculinity – from royalty to troops to dacoits and even popular culture. Remember Quick Gun Murugan, the fictional south Indian cowboy on tv ads and a film, and the Nathulal of all”Sharaabi”. Other famous men who’ve uttered unique moustaches recently Indian history include dacoits Man Singh, Mohar Singh along with Madho Singh, besides Veerappan.
Jaipur-based guy Ram Singh Chauhan from Rajasthan is the most proud owner of their longest moustache in the world and a reference in the Guinness Book of World Records. MDH owner Mahashay Dharampal Gulati has a moustache to consider.
“It is shaped somewhat like the handlebars of a bicycle. But from now onwards the common man of India will remember this as ‘Abhinandan moustache’ only,” Taneja told IANS,” including a gunslinger is usually considered a trendy and classic style that never goes out of trend.
“It signifies machoism or valour and bravery, something that our hero Abhinandan has proven the planet. He’s added that the’heroism’ quotient to this particular style.
“His moustache reflects his strong physical and mental health. Just see how groomed and cool his moustache looks – it would make any man want to follow his style. Women are loving it too! It’s a style of a gentleman,” Taneja said.
Twitterati are going gaga on the moustache. Whether there really are memes, then in addition, there are discussions about just how long it will be until the style becomes a rage.
“Barbers are going to have a tough task designing this, and may thus benefit from premium pricing,” wrote one individual, while another mentioned the IAF wings on Abhinandan’s uniform, and quipped:”I love how nobody is imagining #Abhinandan’s double wings. His IAF wings as well as his moustache wings.”
One user commented:“Abhinandan’s moustache will be the next styling sensation throughout India. Don’t get flabbergasted when your barber asks you ‘Abhinandan cut chahiye?”
Some recounted actor Suriya’s”Singam” moustache and calling Abhinandan the”real Singam” due to his bravery.
