Cease being seen in denims & tees, go for desi gear with vests; unique headgear will take issues to the subsequent stage

A few of these younger males (and by that I imply males of their 50s like me) who’re aspiring to be leaders, actually need to have the ability to learn the room. And by room, I imply our complete political nation. They should know by now that they’ll’t simply go to a celebration or marriage ceremony and be caught on digital camera with unsanskari Nehruvian celebration occurring within the background.

That’s not how nice leaders do it. Nice leaders prep for his or her function.

Nicely, for no matter it’s value, right here’s a prepared reckoner whereas working in our historical tradition.

Firstly, they need to cease being seen in denims/tees. That’s not how leaders gown. That’s the gear worn by the offspring of our leaders presently learning within the US and UK. Impeccably tailor-made desi gear with vests in a wide range of colors (besides inexperienced!) is what lends gravitas to the aspiring chief. Unique headgear – starting from the conflict bonnet of Chief Sitting Bull to a Viking helmet and every thing in between – takes issues to the subsequent stage.

The significance of private grooming can’t be careworn sufficient. What’s with the scruffy stubbles a few of these males are sporting? Develop them out into full-fledged beards, for Bhishma’s sake! A well-groomed beard, consistently various in size and form, relying on whether or not one hopes to invoke Periyar or Otto the Nice, is a Nice Chief must-have. Glowing pores and skin is a prerequisite, too. Thanga bhasmam twice a day helps, I hear.

Coming to equipment, Indian gear paired with high-end imported equipment is the pattern.

Earlier than I neglect, hold a bow and a quiver stuffed with arrows on name, younger sirs. Didn’t you see how Ram Charan’s inventory went by the roof after he was seen with a bow and arrow? It’s all about subliminal messaging.

Moreover, please cease predicting what’s going to occur to our nation within the close to future on account of the pandemic, our borders, economic system and suchlike. If you get that proper, it makes us look dangerous to individuals like Rihanna, WHO and TIME journal. Depart that type of factor to the god males. Stick with predictions concerning the distant future. Like how we can have pushpaka vimanams coming and choosing up driverless automobiles once they breakdown on the superhighways of UP in 2036. It’s known as imaginative and prescient.

A fantastic gait makes for excellent entrances and exits. Younger leaders must develop a correct, deliberate statesmanlike gait if they’re to be worshipped by this nation. They should know when to pause dramatically, when to show round, when to cease halfway on a gangway. Observe different nice leaders and study, bhaiyon.

Additionally, it’s essential the place one is seen. Should you should rejoice, don’t go to the weddings of previous mates in obscure lands, for god’s sake. Search Bollywood. Attempt to wangle an invitation to any of Kanganaji’s events. She’s apparently having a Hindi Bulldozer Diwas and an ashwamedha yaga for her wood horse. Sneak in. Be seen at karva chauths, grihapraveshams and manjal neerattu vizhas. No disco lights within the background. Until there’s a holy river within the foreground.

Be extra musical, doston. Nifty stick work on dhols, bodhráns, breketes and guatacas is what the general public needs. The headgear, the bow and arrow, and the pulsating rhythm of drums – that’s the unbeatable troika.

And at last, by no means be caught unawares. Fake mates with digital camera telephones could make the harmless look culpable. Strut in with your individual digital camera crew wherever you go. Publish, publish and tweet your outings earlier than anybody else does. That’s our time-honoured approach.
