Being bald - is it a bane?

A couple of days ago, I happened to watch this particular talk show, Neeya Naana on Star Vijay. The episode had a set of young men who were bald and a set of young women who expressed their views about the problems caused due to baldness at young age.

The guys who were present, had much more hair than i do. however, they all spoke in such a sober mood, i felt very bad. There were a few who made sense in speaking. Comments like "we have tried our best to avoid, we cant do much about it", "We dont care for it", "It does feel bad when people make fun of us" came out from the men. There wasn't much difference in the opinions of the men.

The attitude of the women was quite striking. Statments like "They don't look normal and hence we find it tough to accept them", "The society will make fun of me, if i accept a bald guy as my husband", "what will my friends say?", "I cant go in the public with him, i will feel awkward" were made. There was just one woman, who boldly said, "i married a bald man by choice. i like him."

Watching all this, my dad, once again started his usual discourse on why i should use a wig or go for a transplant treatment, blah blah...

While all those guys look totally depressed and/or dejected, the females were acting as if being bald is something like being an untouchable.

Is being bald, something the person has a say or opinion about? after all, it is natural. When it starts and when it ends is not in your hand. in such a situation, why are the bald men discriminated?

well, the society, especially the young ladies of the day need to do some soul searching and realise that external beauty is time bound for anybody.

PS: i am not writing this post because i m feeling bad for being bald or because i m being pressurised to get it treated etc. i am happy being who i am and how i look. the reason i wrote this blog is the attitude of the society.

I feel being bald gives a more 'Shtud"dy look. :)
It doesn't matter whether you are bald or grey-haired or whatever. I think its how you carry off yourself or whether you let these things affect your confidence and personality that is important.
I must agree with Prasanna. :)
Bhaand balda illaina, azhage kadaiyaadu.
