Living in a hot city in India can be really tough. Especially when you have to travel daily through public transport and you have a sensitive skin. You know very well that in this summer the temperature is going to hit 40 degrees, and the last year sunburn marks took your whole winter to get better. The sun is so ruthless that your sunscreen doesn’t really help you. At this point of time here comes your savoir, your “stole”. You can spot many heads fully covered like they are some undercover agent who are restricted to show their identity. You really don’t have any choice.
Here are few struggles we go through every summer when we cover our face with our Dupatta, stole or scarf.
Wrapping a stole/ scarf: Although wrapping a stole is an everyday routine for you but every single day you have to struggle wrapping it around. (Wrapping around face) Ouch! Its covering my eyes, (completely wrapped) oh no forgot to put my earphones on (unwrap again), (tying stole behind) ow! ow! My hair not my hair.
Sometimes your friends don’t recognize you: You are so used to of covering your face that sometimes you forget people can’t recognize you, they can not see your face. You go like “hey!” and the long lost friend goes like “’ do I know you?”
Explaining that you’re not afraid of getting dark: if you cover your face mostly people think you’re afraid of getting dark. Dude! Have you ever experience sunburns? It hurts as hell. My skin is a little sensitive and this city is too hot. OK?
Sale on stole and scarf attracts you: reason why Sarojini Nagar market, Palika Bazar and other market place attracts you is because they have sale on stole. They have so many color option and variety that every time you visit you have urges to buy a new stole.
All this pain is worthy if you really survive the whole summer without those painful sunburns. Scorching heat can be tough but you are patience and smart enough to win.
