Dear Diary,
My life so far was a very far fetched game of unique misery. I hate this world and the meek pleasures it has to offer. In reality, everything seems a bit out of the box to me. The laziness and loneliness instilled within me from childhood had eaten off the man of discipline that I once boasted myself to be.
Being an avid environmentalist, I liked to touch the skies and breathe in it's glory. The vastness of this earth had succumbed my whole so endearingly that I could not breathe at times. Life felt meaningless, and I was lost at times. But in spite of all the pain, I had an optimist in me that kept saying that a Saviour would come to rescue my life. Aspiring towards a better tomorrow, I kept staring at my monotonous life, awaiting the miracle that would redeem me one day. 
Friends and family were akin, but many of them had their lonely lives too. My cousins were far better players than me. They boasted of their uniqueness, which was often praised by the world. This had smitten my idealistic desire of destiny. After many days of wandering in search of salvation, I decided to meditate on it. A natural cure for my laziness was time consuming. I wanted to be active and lively again, and be bold and strong for all those who cared for me. Then as if disaster stroke, I felt my energy draining each day and started to turn pale towards the realities of this universe. Oh Boy! Lost was I in dilemma. Is there no cure to save my plight? 
But as if a dream, an Angel arrived in a box today. Thrilled was I to see her that I immediately fell in love with relief. She asked me, "What do you want young man?". I replied, "My only wish is to live a perfect life, pleasing the world and everyone who cares!". She was kind and gave me the best answer to all my problems...Dove!
  -With peace,
A lonely Hair

Russell Brand looks cool?

Trees are everywhere. There are trees at homes, workplaces, in public squares, along railway tracks, and some even roam around the gutter. Well a few tree holders are staring at this post right now, wondering what I really meant! Well trees refer to your hair in this context. Some trees are short, while some are tall. Some are old, greyed, healthy, stubborn, cute, awkward, and there are probably many more words to describe them. And I wonder how many of us keep it natural? 
Impossible is a word found only in the dictionary of fools. But since we're all fools, I'd gladly use it here. It's almost impossible to keep your hair neat and tidy in this era, especially if you live in the dirtiness and daily scenarios of India. Sorry, I'm not being rude to the various hair products available at the market, but do they actually work? I don't know! Recently a lot of advertisements claim to provide the end solutions, and lots of people fall for them too! Most people want a genie in a bottle, but is there truly a hair genie? I was lost here, so I decided to investigate.

After using some of the products available in the market, I went to consult an Ayurvedic remedy for the hair fall, balding, and greying of my hair. The worst part of the entire experience was that I was given a hair oil to be used before bathing, and another hair oil to be used after bathing! Also, I was told to avoid spicy food which I could not bear to accept! During the first few days it was difficult to adjust as I had become allergic to the smell, but then I continued the therapy for the next three months. Unlikely for me, my hair just remains the same! It has not matured any more. I wonder why this happens to young adults very often? A little more investigation showed that the problems lie within the environment itself. The water that I used at the hostel was not well treated, thus it has caused an increase in the hair fall rate also accelerating the balding process. The human body is capable of fighting against illness and recovering from it naturally. But do we actually give it the time for the same? Then all of a sudden, the early men intrigued me. Did they have hair issues back then? What about all the other historical geniuses? It's fascinating to think how our era has got more hair problems than any other era. And we claim to have found a solution? Well, enlighten me please! Deep within this genuine sarcasm lies a truth that seems mysterious

Nature at it's best!
Sometimes everyday mysteries of our life seem unacceptable. We tend to forget the truth that we are only humane. Our hair shows a lot about our character, protecting it is of genuine importance to each one of us. But we've to first give it the natural time to rejuvenate itself. Try to avoid the excessive use of any hair product, and use proper water and protection from sweat, cold, rain, and dust. This can be done by using plain techniques such as umbrellas, and taking a proper bath on time. Being aware of your hair is very much necessary to understand and properly maintain your hair accordingly. And doing so will hopefully bring about a positive end to all my hair problems!

I loose myself to thee, Oh Time,
Make me sway beneath thy plight!
Life’s turned over new realms,
Gay no more, I've been lost!
Bring me back, lest I cease along;
In wind and rain, my splendour mourns!
I, a sad soul, revival calls;
On this diary, should truth be known.
I keep a vow, with persistent hope,
In spite of slips and spills of young,
To happiness, in which I truly believe,
God witness this, I will persevere!
