The incident that I am going to recount is from the days when we were still in college, I and my friend, Ravi. Ravi has always been a car and bike enthusiast and while now he follows only the technical aspects of these machines, in college he was a full fashion follower too! He dressed like the bad biker boys one sees on TV with long hair, hairy beard, a bandana tied on his forehead and baggy jeans with ratty T-shirts completing he look.
To me, he looked like a bandit and even though I didn't like his look, he loved it and was not ready to change but change he did after one fateful incident in his life.
Our college life was almost at an end. Only a few months remained and we were all set to tackle the various companies arriving in our college to hire us! The whole college was abuzz with preparations, students were nervously revising all that they had learned in the past three and a half years and trying their best to groom themselves into the most appealing individuals for the hiring team but he was adamant on not shaving off his beard. He told everyone that the company would surely see his resume and check his skills rather than checking his looks. No amount of telling could change his mind.
