Bharathapuzha, also known as Nila, is not just a river for Kerala. It has been a hub of cultural diversity in the state. On the banks of Kerala’s second largest river, one can explore a number of art forms, handicrafts, culture, traditions and literature which have represented god’s own country all over the world.
The second longest river in Kerala, Nila ties together the traditions of three districts – Palakkad, Thrissur and Malappuram. The cultural abundance present on its banks cannot be found anywhere else in Kerala; no other river in the state has perhaps contributed as much to Kerala’s cultural heritage.
But this cultural heritage is under threat, because Nila is slowly dying. The rampant sand mining on the banks of the Bharathapuzha is leading to the shrinking of the river, and with it, the livelihood of the hundreds of artisan communities that live on its banks.
Men are making choices that let them express their individuality. From carved beard to full beard with a man bun — its time to experiment, say experts.
Rohit Jaiswal from Bombay Shaving Company and Karan Chadha, Founder, Gangs of Beard, point out that men are not “price sensitive and will spend on products they relate to”.
They also added that men “are getting more adventurous in expressing themselves – whether it is growing a beard, being covered with tattoos or even sporting a shaved dome”.
The three styles that are doing the rounds in summer are:
Bald with beard
A shaved head complimenting a full beard or a neatly trimmed beard is quite the classic combination that always works. The secret to making it work into a well-groomed look is some brow maintenance as well.
This fashionable and trendy beard style for dusky men often highlights unique facial hair contouring on a prominent jaw line.
Full beard with a man bun
The full beard look with a man bun has become quite the rage and a look that gives casuals a whole new expression.

Luxury phone maker Vertu has launched a new premium phone. Dubbed Vertu Signature Cobra, the limited edition feature phone has an exorbitant price tag of $360,000 (about Rs 2.3 crore). The primary highlight of the phone is its design, which includes a snake figure wrapped around the edges.
Vertu Signature Cobra’s body consists of 439 rubies and the Snake’s eyes are made up with emeralds. That said, it’s still a feature phone so the feature set is pretty limited.
