Something really unexpected has happened since I started school three months back…With a frightening regularity, people have told me they know someone who looks like me….
The lady who is helping us with our dinner: “You look a lot like my nephew !”
Classmate1: “You look like this guy I know from Delhi..”
Classmate 2: “Dude, you look a lot like this south-indian politician….”
Me: “Really ? ” “Who ?”
Classmate 2: “Jayalalitha.”
While marketing has been talking about product differentiation, I have realized that my face is not going to help me achieve any of that…this is turning out to be a look which is good for the north and the south, good for the women and the men…so when I look into the mirror these days, all I see is a template…
