Rummuser With Peruke.

Grannymar made an excellent suggestion in her comments on my blog post All Hope Abadon Ye Who….. : “If you are worried about your image, why not bring back the peruke?”

So, I took the help of some graphics editing and came up with this version of me with a peruke.


Rather startling effect I should say!

Grannymar, do you think that my fortunes will change despite my beard if I were to look like this?

What do my other readers think?

PS. Having sneaked a preview, Manjiree believes that I should make this my avatar! I suspect that she wants me to be the laughing stock among her generation of friends.

Life has a way of bowling googleys at me. For my American friends, the equivalent is curve balls. Hardly had I reconciled to my ambivalent state vis a vis my facial hair, I come across this piece of writing that gives me some major complex issues. Should I shave my chest too?

    I’m with Manjiree! Now you need to use your skills to lift the peruked head and place atop your more usual Dhoti Kurta!

    Oh my, you look like a Indian judge that was converted by British colonialism. Perhaps an Elvis wig would be more becoming? 🙂

    Go back to photoshop. If Iwas you I’d demand my money back. You’re trying to look like one of those dashing Regency rakes I try not to read about, but frankly, my dear, it doesn’t quite come off. You look like a demented judge whose had too much of the sauce. I’ll beg to differ with Manjiree on this one.

    Startling, Ramana? More flea infested like. Maria is right. Though I think she meant Renaissance man. Stunning. And a lot of fluff.

    Excellent Ramana! you look so much younger! I think you should get one.

  11. You’re just jealous because I have that much white hair and it’s real. Gollywog? Hmm – I have seen Golliwogs perform before they changed their name to Creedence Clearwater Revival.

    You look every inch the successful, much-in-demand barrister, except that you’re smiling. A real barrister would be looking grim, ruthless and ready to utterly destroy the other side.

    I do believe your fortunes will change with this look-if you are mistaken for a Godman or politician…..

  15. Strange how it changes you. You look a lot like my nephew who just changed his profile photo on FaceBook. I think the old-fashioned chemistry cited is the key, rather than more or less hair. (And, btw, I stand pretty much in opposition to the Brazilian Wax. Pain is NOT purifying!

    • Remarkable indeed. You are not the only one to comment like that but most comments from family and friends were asking me to revert to my original avatar with the bald head. So, despite familiarity breeding etc, I did that!
