This Excerpt From Jawaharlal Nehru’s Diary Is Going Viral !! And You Know Why ?

Most of our lives are pretty sorted till our early 20s. But then, this starts to happen.

Hair loss is a bitch. Probably a bigger concern that demonetisation for a lot of men in our country. Some unfortunate ones start suffering in their late 20s, many fall victims in their 30s while most are affected by the time they reach their late 40s.

And the thing is, with hair fall, you can’t do much unless you have a lot of money. Which most of us don’t.

You might wonder what the fuck is with this randomness? As it turns out, things ain’t that random.

Some uncovered facts in letter written by Jawaharlal Nehru when he was far from being called a Chacha.

Dated September 1911, this excerpt from the Selected Works Of Jawaharlal Nehru is a letter addressed to his father where a 21-year-old Nehru is totally freaked out about his baldness.

You want to know the true meaning of being realistic? Check out the line no. 4 from this excerpt. It says,

“I don’t suppose there is any chance of my getting back any of my lost hair.”

Also, you want to know what rational thinking means? Line no. 8, which reads,

“Nothing in the world will make hair grow if there are no roots left.”

And the sad realization at the end,

“The amount of time and money I have spent on it might have been utilised in a much better manner.”

Well, Chacha Nehru was certainly one of us.
