Many a time, men comment on the number cosmetics and natural remedies women use to keep their luscious locks healthy and beautiful. But deep down, they themselves have the fear of losing their hair. It’s a known fact that with age a majority of men lose their hair.

Did you know, the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, was so scared of getting bald that he wrote a letter to his father when he was just 11 years old?



This is a rare fact about him. Recently, someone shared a copy of Jawaharlal Nehru’s letter on Reddit that he wrote to his father after getting frustrated with his hair fall!

The letter is extremely funny and innocent – what he has written is really adorable. His words reflect his concern about the amount of money he was spending to cure his hair fall. You can also judge his intellect by sentences like…

Nothing in the world will make hair grow if there are no roots left.

In his letter, he sounds so frustrated with the oils and home remedies that he finally told his father not to send him any more oil. It’s a funny read. Take a look at his letter below…



Doesn’t the letter reflect the innocence of an 11 year-old?
