SIPL: Moustaches

This one Joanna and I noticed even before we got to India. While we were waiting at the gate in Paris to board our plane to Bangalore we noticed that the majority of the men sported one prominent feature: moustaches. The mo, ‘stache, tickler, mobile tea strainer, the Magnum P.I., the handlebar, the fu manchu, the flavour saver, the Steve Carey. Whatever you want to call it, Indian men like them. Apparently in one area of India, policemen receive a 30 rupee/month bonus to sport a stache, believed to encourage greater respect. Not sure if this bonus applies to policewomen. The world’s longest mustache is owned by an Indian man I’m pretty sure. I’ve decided to keep my face more or less clean-shaven, but you may see a ‘stache on me come Movember.
