    A few days back,sitting with my nightly nectar,I was watching NDTV news, and heard a strange piece of news.Air India dismissed an employee, some Mr.De (maybe a cousin of Shoha De), for keeping a big moustache.It seems they allow a moustache over the lip, but not over the face, a la Makhan Singh and Dhakhan Singh, the inlaws and outlaws of the Chambal.

    Mr.De went to court, challenging his dismissal,against the ground that if Silkhs can keep Turbans, he surely can keep a Muchhi.And he said to the learned judge, that look at the mascot of Air India, the Maharaja, who is advertised with a long moustache,and the passengers expect every employee of Air India to have a big one, i mean the moustache, and nothing else !

    Let us see what happens, though if i were the judge, I would side Mr.De.I too keep one, and it is difficult to keep and maintain one really.Every week i see hair sprouting here and there.and with a scissors u have to keep trimming it.And with white ones a plenty, i have to uproot them from the roots, and keep the edges same,sometimes one side droops more than the other, and the balancing act is very taxing.So its not everyone's cup of tea to keep one.Only the very brave do so.

    And curds have a habit of leaving their mark on my muchi, i have to be reminded by my wife to wipe them after lunch.And Tuffy must lick my muchi when i am asleep, as he finds many a taste on it, like some choclates, curds, and other goodies,and mostly his lips touch my mouth early in the morning, and I wonder who is unfortunate to kiss me so early.At that precise moment, I am dreaming about Dolly Parton , and there i am sadly awaken with a start,stupid Tuffy.

    Reminding me of Rakhee Sawant,well she takes the cake and everything.Did u guys and gals see her on Valentine's day, slapping her boyfriend in front of her mother, and dozens of TV Channels,who have no Kaam Dhanda but to feature her on this lovely day.All my maids have been better looking than RS.God knows what her BF finds in her.But then i am reminded of the saying
    " Jab Gadhi pasand Ho, To Pari Kya cheez hai"
    And as Shakesphere has rightly said " Beauty lies in the eyes of the Beholder" This BF must get his eyes checked for sure.

    Coming back to the mostaches.My Uncle, used to keep the normal one, but with pointed edges.And he used to be in deep thought, he used to keep twirling the edges and irritate me no end.Ive seen Sardars, when they eat the prasad at the Gurudwaras, they wipe the oily hands on their beards and mustaches,and my Tuffy would have loved to have a lick at them.

    My daughters when they were young, used to love to play with my mustache, and the hard beard, and run their forearm against them,and squal in delight.Alas they are now grown up,and now have to deal with moustaches of guys their age.

    I only hope Indus dosnt debar Mustache guys from blogging, otherwise i will have to shave off,and wave off Goodbye.They have stood me in good stead, thorugh all the roughs of life, and just for a new friend( Indus),I can't let go off an old friend my moustache.So it is for Indus to decide whether to keep me or not.Indus decide my fate.Amen

    Kamalji,
    After a looooooong time! Hello. I am back here.

    Was chuckling all the way through reading this. Put in a couple of Yech!!!s while reading about residues collected by moustache! ODIOUS! And personally I feel R S is as odious as residues on moustaches... The very sight of that female makes me want to puke.... I don't know what people see in her! And the media obsession with her is another yech!! If your maids have better look than RS mine have better class.... ( heh...heh... What a character assassination we are indulging in!)
    Anyway, loved reading your ramble!
    Regards
    twinsmom

    Dear Kamalji,

    I showed this post to my hubby who immediately said "At last someone to sing the praises of hair on a Male"...He asks me to type here to express his support for your views.

    When I met him, my cousins teased me by saying "Hey give your hubby a bowl of Sevaiyan, he will swallow the milk & the Sevaiyan will be blocked by his Muchchad"

    Hubby says it is pride & joy. His request : Males with muchchads unite!

    Cheers,

    Corallux

    Humorous Kamalji.

    I am reminded of the movie Golmal where Utpal Dutt gives a lot of importance to men with moustache. He interviews Amol Palekar and is impressed that the later has a moustache.

    Amol Palekar tells him "Manushya ko apne aadarsh aur muchon ka uchit aadhar karna chahiye. Moustache is the mirror of human soul and mind(!!!)....mooch to man ka darpan hai"

    Utpal Dutt who by now is very impressed with Amol Palekar tells him "Jiske paas mooch nahi hai, uske paas man nahi hai!"
