Women go to the police with a complaint (may be false), but the system provides to record that as a criminal complaint and that data adds in to the National Statistics of Crime Against Women. When male goes with a genuine complaint the police at max can record a Non Cognizable offence against the women. That will never reflect in the statistics. Then how will one guage crime against men? Every 100 Suicides in India have 63 Males and 37 Females. Every 100 male suicides have 45 married males, and every 100 women suicides have 25 married Women. Married women suicides have default arrests of the inlaws under presumed dowry death. Married men suicides entitle wife for a 50% share in property. What kind of equality is this?

As usual when it comes to critisicing MEN some copywriters go Overboard. It must be a very desperate marketing attempt.

The Ignominious Shave India Movement is infected by the typical women name calling tactics as the movement is called WALS aka Women Against Lazy Stubble, read the following:

"The message that WALS intends to spread to men across the country is three fold:
  1. Till men don't shave, we will not co-operate with them.
  2. Now that the comfort of Gillette Mach 3 is affordable, there are no more excuses to not be shaving.
  3. If men don't shave, they shouldn't expect women to groom themselves either."

Ok so lets spread the message to (a few) important personalities (some of them MetroSexuals too)

Well are the above Men Lazy? They are the busiest, from Top, Hritik Roshan, Shiv Nadar, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Abhishek Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Prannoy Roy, Baba Ramdevji, Dhoni,Yuviraj and Harbhajan, Anil Kapoor and VJ Ranvijay. and mind you its just a sample survey. there are many unsung heroes too. With Chota Stubble ya Bada Stubble, Some of them have grown their Stubbles to a regular beard.

And if you all still feel STUBBLE IS LAZY then ....


Leave the choice to us, stop the name calling.  

Badhti ka Naam Dadhi, 

Happy National Stubble Day.....(7th Dec)

Ok, I won't be too sure about Baba Ramdev. But how can the majority of men be called lazy? Afterall it's the men who do all the work to provide for the rather lazy women, who've no other work but to do spend hours grooming themselves up, just so that they get the best of those hard-working men!

No wonder, you are my blogging Guru, the best sarcastic attack on Gillette so far.

And for Gillette, the best option would be to accept its mistake and apologize.

dear all, Thanks for the comments and views...

@ Legal Techie, i have heard that Babaji is arguably the most busiest and efficient of all, and has female followers too :)

@ Ajit, With our kind of team and solidarity towards our cause, we will make it happen.

@ Crusader, I am flattered with your comments. I agree with you that Gillete will have to apologize and respect individual mens choice.

Being a persistent and religious woman yoga practitioner since more than two and half years, i can here gaurantee that Baba Ramdev is indeed is one of the most busiest persons in the world too, not just india. We wakes up at time when more or less no great personality of this world wakes up from past atleast 15 years. He wakes up at around 3.30 and if at most, not after 4.00 AM. Doing yoga and make himself reach to that state which is the BEST OF CHETANYA BHAV where the MANAV becomes VIRAT MANAV(i dont know Gillette is all talking about-shaving, it such a orthodox and minutia-level thinking). On the platform of greatness,praise, respect, this kind of thinking level has no stand. This is the kind of greatness which is above shaving or unshaving. And he accomplishes his every untiring day with just zist that women all around the globe respects and follows him. His yoga can cure all your ailments. Orthodox-thinking ailment also. All politicians, film celebrities, prime minister the health ministers of various countries( to name a few) follows his yoga practices and breathing exercises. Lakhs of people around the globe got cured.And please take this point , this man with long beard and long moustaches dont eat ANN (cereals and rice/Wheat) from past atleast 10 years then he is so energetic and non-stop. Instead one of his sayings in his shvirs which is the mantra of his women discpiles now also (i have recorded this in my mobile to listen to it daily)- "aaram haram hai, karyantar hi vishram hai. khali dimag shaitaan ka ghar ,aarm nahi karna,vishram nahi karna, charaiveti chareveti,chalne ka naam hi satyug hai, chalne wale ka hi parmatna saath deta hai".

The kind of yoga asans he do without eating food is unimaginable for a normal human being forget about shaved hunks which women praise in these kind of stupid movements.The work he accomplished in such a short period of time as follows:
Built patanjali yogapeeth phase-1, patanjali yogapeeth phase-2(visited both of them and saw them with my eyes, thats amazing), Patanjali nursery, yog gram, worls largest horticulture, divya pharmacy, has fan following (instead women fan followers are more in percentage than men) around the globe, to name a few of his acheivements.

His morning shivir sometimes happens in lucknow, then evening shivir in mumbai then next morning shivir in shimla. Instead we women praises his long beard and long moustaches, and long hairs. You are saying stubble ? his unshaved personality of more or less black colour in the age of 44 is applauded in the whole world. I would advise Gillette to get out of living-in-the-well kind of thinking to ocean level thinking. Please open aastha at 5.00 AM and listen to him sometimes, not even Manmohan singh can deliever the lecture on Lal Quila which he delievers everyday from 5.00 AM to 7:30 AM everyday on your TV channels. His voice tone, touch, and energy will make you Beware!.

Above is just a tip if the iceberg.

@ Ritika,

Thanks for supporting the individual choice of men.

all we are trying here to say is stubble is not lazy, be it our PM or Babaji whom i too adore greatly for their efficiency are busiest and have no aota of laziness.

plus there are unsung heroes around us who are targeted in this campaign who make positive difference in society in their own way.

some ideal gossipers are on spree busy labelling the busy people as lazy and all said and done men cannot be ridiculed.

keep participating.

Gillette has used a nasty old-wives tactic, shame/nag them till they agree.... they should have just been honest and said Mach-3 gives a good shaving experience and most of us would have agreed.

Now with their WALS campaign I for sure have left using Gillette out of plain revulsion seeing their shameful tactics, indirectly promoting Misandry. I am sure a lot of men agree with this, whether SIF members or otherwise.

here i wanna confirm if stubbles is called lazy or men are called lazy????As per english language Stubble is when hair grows out from the skin and still so short that is sometimes rough to the touch.

Ramdev,Shiv Nadar,Prannoy Roy,Harbhajan and Manmohan Singh have beard not stubbles. And rest of the lot has more like small beard(we cannot call it stubble).

but gillette while conveying does not exclude this lot, their point no.1 is

"Till men don't shave, we will not co-operate with them."

To reach a beard one needs a stubble, hence stubble cannot be ruled out.

let it be a personal choice and not a dictated one.

Meaning of stubble in english through google.com- Something resembling this material, especially the short growth of hair that eventually protrudes from the skin after shaving.It means whenever you shave , you will have stubble so gillete cannot avaoid stubble situation becuase it is the situation which is a god's built natural phenomenon and it will definetely happen even after you shave so its a cycle. You shave and you land in stubble situation and so on.

Once shaving done , on the very 2nd day some short hairs comes and as per gillete men should shave off if they want women to co-operate with them and if they want women to groom themselves, then in that sense approx 15 shaves in a month will make a men's hairs so hard that forget about coming close to such a man, women will actually run away if they touch such a rough and hard skin and years after years this gillete man will become a hard crunch wierd nut with the touch of hairs like a bear.

Thank God we women have bleaching creams on face otherwise there could be movement by men MALS -men against lazy stubbles.

BTW stubble is a situation and does not mean "men who are in to such situation"so WALS means women against lazy stubbles(short hairs and not men who have short hairs) but the message of the movement- the three points and name of the movement contradicts in itself so the name of the movement is not justified in literal way and hence ruled out and if a movement's name is ruled out how can the movement survive. please choose some other name.

The first message :
Till men don't shave, we will not co-operate with them.
Answer- Dont you co-operate with the extreme side of stubble situation which these well known people have . I am sure when these celebreties will go in a stubble situation that will be a style statement again. Its all in the mind. History beckons when orthodox-thinking have been ruled time and again when an individual had moved his voice. Many men then would actually would like to be stubble. Arindham Chaudhary says- First a man thinks its impossible, then he thinks it could be and then after some time when the world had accepted the idea thought how stupid i was not to think it before.

Second message : Now that the comfort of Gillette Mach 3 is affordable, there are no more excuses to not be shaving.

Answer : its not affording or not affording its about freedom to choose and implement. WALS is a dictatorship , we (be it man or woman )cant afford to get dictated , then in that case a man can leave affordable things also.

Third message : If men don't shave, they shouldn't expect women to groom themselves either."
Answer : Aint these celebreties groomed???? Aint their woman fan followers praise them. Beard is an extreme side of stubbleness , if women can praise extreme side , stubbleness

Except 2-3 photos, all other men actually have light or heavy stubbles . Please check your general knowledge by books or by searching the net.

@ Preeti LOL on bleaching and on MALS may be termed as Men Against LADY Stubble by desperate marketing groups. :) keep writing. i guess your last comment was incomplete...

and I agree that beard is Extreme Stubble. There is something like light medium and heavy stubble too.

To eliminate the so called lazy stubble men, If there is no stubble stage where will the beard come? with this motive i have put the photographs of some men with heavy beards. :)

Check this Link


Stubble is not so bookish, this link mentions about various Stubbles: Light, Medium, Heavy.

Stubble goes through all these stages before a heavy beard.

further interestingly the research in this link shows total reverse of what a c neilson has found out. women prefer all kinds of stubbles. i know what could be the possible answers. but the point is there are various stubbles. but i respect personal choice and i oppose dictating a choice by berating.

and what we oppose is the name calling and insulting of a particular section of men (who choose to be stubble) in the name of style statement by pressurising and breeding a negative complex.

Gillette has been employing these kinds of intrusive tactics to get their blades selling, see one invasion of privacy with RFID chips which takes photos of customers picking up gillette products in USA

Copy to Media Personnel,

Hello all at Gillette,

I was amazed to see the way you intrude into peoples life and their privacy, just to push your sales. After I sent the below email protesting against Gillette India’s WALS campaign(Women Against Lazy Stubble, as Gillette names it), I discovered that Gillette has been doing this to their customers across the world too, for years together.

Its a shame on your part to call all this by fancy names such as “Influencer Marketing” , when its actually “Intrusive Coercion” on your part.

I hereby boycott Gillette products for life, you will hear more from my friends who chose to do the same until you stop such uncouth sales tactics, be it women, be it a chip(Radio frequency Identification chips – RFID chips)

Ohhh u guys don’t know how eager Gillette would be to get Men shaved all over their bodies(more blades consumed!)… that campaign is coming soon, and they will take support from some more body-waxing actresses that time too.

See their intent(at http://shaveindia.com/index.php): Women on the warpath!
Women from various cities across the country have decided to come out of their man’s shadows. They have joined forces to form an active change group called W.A.L.S. – women against lazy stubble. These women, joined by glamorous leading ladies like Neha Dhupia,Minissha Lamba and Mugdha Godse, have a single point agenda – to get their man to shave and come clean! If they are doing so much to look after themselves, it’s time men responded too!.

May be Stayfree will now come after men urging to wear their product!!!.

Dear Gillettians,

Why don’t you just name your stupid campaign “Show me the money, honey” or something and be
honest about this whole thing.


Yours Stubblefully

It's ultimately men's choice either he want female or stubble?? if female wants his men in stubble what problem Gillete have?? still he will remove stubble and make both of them unhappy..

apart from that bachelor guys like me like to be in stubble because
~ mouth of few girls stings a lot
~ they don't wanna became victim on molestation, because there is no law in India prevents that.
~ might be his Woman is biting a lot on his cheeks.
~ Might be she is wearing mouth clips..
~ if guy is in relationship with more than one girl then it give many problems like lipstick marks..
~ In case of swine flu if she is kissing on his cheek, he may get swine flu too. !!
~ They feels being in stubble only way to get way from unwanted girls, this seems to be serious threats for Gillette.

finally many thoughts with pros and cons..

You people always write about the men perspective. Stub is the personal choice and fundamental right of any individual how he/she want to look in discipline.
However I am agree that BigShot Company Gillet, poisoining the mind of women by misguiding them/providing fact and figures based on search done by unscruplus women /their association WALS.

If this will not be stop then other ad will come "women don't like chest hairs" shave it .....................
