4 Things of Today’s World that Puzzle Me
Statutory Warning: Read at your own risk-4 Things about Today’s World that Puzzle Me
It is not wrong to say that the world has gone berserk in these past few years. There are earth-shaking problems in the world but what got my gut is the serious or rather hilarious subject of Cosmetic Surgery. It is a light-hearted satire. You may not always become a beauty after cosmetic surgery. The surgery could go wrong, and you look like a beast. There is no end to crazy stuff some people do to jazz up their boring lives. Limiting myself to just four was quite difficult when there is an endless number.
Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
We have heard of nips and tucks to the wrinkled face, sagging boobs or a tummy tuck. Well, plastic surgery was a taboo word and now no one lifts a brown when you mention Botox. Whatever happened to the adage “With age comes wisdom. You don’t need big boobs to be feminine.” It’s not just the young and happening, but even the wise and old are trying to look like their grandchildren. We are now living in a society which pays more credence to brawn than brain. Social media has spread the notion that looks do matter. You get more followers and likes!
4 Things of Today’s World that Puzzle Me-The surgeries I have mentioned will have you cocking your brows and your jaw-dropping.
1. The Perfect Belly Button
Most natural belly buttons are not perfect or round. But South Indian Cinema to the Recent Shark Tank episode highlighted the navel fetish in Indian men. The typical saree-clad heroine lying in the wackiest places has tops, playing on their belly button or a fried egg cooked on its “heat”. The hero drops two eggs onto her stomach and a fried egg is ready with a sizzling sound and they show her heaving breast as voluptuous erotica. Yes, many a man wants a perfect belly button and his woman goes for corrective surgery to please him. In Shark Tank India, Baldev Jumnani expressed his fetish for perfect “gol naabhi‘. He pitched the ‘Navel Fukai, an instrument for a perfectly round belly button! It can convert an “outie” belly button to an “innie”
Out of all the problems in the world, this man invented a product to make round belly buttons. Are you pulling your hair out as the Sharks did?
Men consider dimples sexually attractive and expect their women to have dimples like Preity Zinta and Deepika through surgery. How can girls be far behind? King Khan and the hunk John Abraham flaunt them. Girls swoon over them, fantasising about a dimpled man in their life. Yes, the metrosexual and millennial man is ready to go under the scalpel to change their looks.
Yes, Dimpleplasty is a thing! I have heard dimples are lucky, cute and desirable. As far back as 1936, Isabella Gilbert invented a brace which left dents in the cheeks. The research shows that 20% of us have dimples while the rest of the 80% want it and get it through Dimpleplasty to look adorable. It is a minimal procedure where the surgeon pulls in the cheek muscle and nips it inside. But did you know that medical science claims that a dimple appears to be a genetic deformity? The only deformity most people wish for.
3. Butt or Gluteal Augmentation
Did you ever think that your buttocks are flat, sagging, or not shapely enough? Not in the past, but now butt augmentation is THE thing. Cardi B joked and said, “I can’t swim, so I bought these titties so I can float.” She makes no bones about the fact that she got a boob job and injections for a voluptuous butt. She candidly says, “No matter how much I work out, my boobs and butt were not gonna lift themselves”. Closer home, Shilpa Shetty has had a nose, lip and butt job done.
Did you know that Jennifer Lopez has her butt insured for 2 million dollars, 5 million more than Kim Kardashian’s? Before the internet age, women’s breasts held sway, but after the media blitzkrieg, butts have upstaged the boobs. The movies usually exposed the breasts till the 80s. Did you know that when jeans came into vogue, all the ads focused on their derriere and men started shifting their focus to them?
Have you heard of fake butts? There is no surgery but prosthetics to increase butt size. Vidya Balan used them to look like a well-endowed Silk Smitha. Rakhi Sawant, the queen of implants in India, says, a doctor can give you what God forgot to share.
4. Palm Line Surgery
Can we change our Karma by modifying the lines on the palm? It is not only ludicrous, but it is also unimaginable, isn’t it? But it is a surgical trick and will reach India soon. Karma does not have an expiry date. It is an energy that is carried from former lifetimes to the lifetimes to come. We Indians predetermine our future and believe in our fate. Indians have been using palm reading for thousands of years. It has made its way to other Asian countries.
Palm line surgeries have become a trend in Japan. Takaaki Matsuoka, a plastic surgeon in Tokyo, performs this outlandish procedure. The doctor scorches palms with an electric scalpel and then rewrites the lines or creates new lines. Laser devices are being used to change your fate by merely altering your palm. It is being promoted as a foolproof method to transform the lives and the future of people by orchestrating the existing lines on their palms.
It is said that these artificial Palm lines assure wealth, love and happiness. The men wish for a different money line while the women ask for love and everlasting marriage. Sounds regressive to a technically advanced country like Japan, isn’t it?
Anything can happen in this Kaliyuga! Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti! (Touching my ears with my hands)
