From fairness mushroom to waxing, opposition leaders busy in wild speculations behind the secrets of PM Modi’s ‘looks’

Before the mental images of Kumaraswamy with make-up start haunting your mind space, please acknowledge the fact that at least here is a man who does not believe in magic mushrooms and Diamond facials.

Indian politics is wilder, funnier and more dramatic than any comedy show on the planet. As the elections draw closer, it just gets better and better. The allegations of scams, intolerance, non-performance (and the lies that come with it) and all those issues are so usual during election time that one just wishes there were other things to laugh (or cry) about. Thankfully, Indian politicians never disappoint. They are more melodramatic than the worst Big Boss contestants.

PM Narendra Modi is the common target for most other politicians in the opposition to whine, gossip, and complain about. While the usual political accusations have been common and have often been repeated without success to attempt to tarnish his image, there are the occasional attacks on his personal life, his family and even his sartorial choices.

However, among all the complaints, there have also been certain unusual ones. They are about his looks and physical appearance. Before the Gujarat elections, Congress leader Alpesh Thakore had made a statement that PM Modi was earlier dark like him. But he had begun eating a magic mushroom that costs Rs 80,000 per piece and he eats 5 of them a day. And that is how he has become fair.

Taking the Mushroom claim a bit further, Congress leader Pawan Khera had argued once that the PM gets a “Diamond Facial” every day apart from eating the Rs 80,000 magic mushrooms.

The rumour mill has not dried up. And it is not just the Congressis either. There are admirers of the PM’s looks in the media too, though they hate to admit it and instead do the ‘fangirling’ claiming it to be the perspective of rural Indian women.

And now, it has become evident that the gossips and obsession about PM Modi and his looks are not limited to the ‘Hindi belt’ alone. Karnataka’s CM HD Kumaraswamy has come up with a rather unusual statement where he is literally whining about PM Modi’s good looks on camera and his own lack of it (his words, not ours).

Just like a Big Boss contestant bitching to his/her confidante of the day about another house-member, Karnataka’s ever whining CM has found a new topic to whine about. This time it is not him being a clerk or him being cheated/neglected/manipulated or being made to drink poison. Kumaraswamy has stated that PM Modi wakes up every morning and applies make-up and wax to his face so he looks good on the camera. He has also lamented that his face does not look good enough on cameras only because he does not wash it frequently.

Before the mental images of Kumaraswamy with make-up start haunting your mind space, please acknowledge the fact that at least here is a man who does not believe in magic mushrooms and Diamond facials.

However, Kumaraswamy seems to have a horrible misconception about waxing. Painful as it is, I am yet to meet a person who has ever had a waxing on the face. With PM Modi’s beard and moustache, waxing is definitely an impossible idea. Somebody should remind that to the Karnataka CM.

With election season almost upon us and campaigns in full swing, PM Modi is often seen addressing rally after rally, meeting after meeting, attending event after event without ever being tired. It seems, apart from political prowess, power and success, personality and looks is another department where PM Modi is making his rivals fume.
