Image make-over or image change-over – whatever you call it- the fact is that Modi was caught unawares when he was offered the skull cap by the Muslim clergy!
The reason is not what the English media is trying to invent and spread as a scoop, because it is as simple as what anyone with shining head will understand.
The news item in the Hindustan Times clearly says that he did not want to wear the cap in front of the cameras. It says,
“Seeing the cap, Modi's expression changed like a flash and he gestured that he would not prefer wearing the cap under the gaze of cameras.”
When he did not have any qualms on wearing the turbans given by others in the glare of the cameras, what reason could be there for refusing the Muslim cap?
There is a reason. It is as common to you and me and to anyone standing in the glare of cameras.
To know what it is, take a look at the other headgears he wore.
You can see how these headgears neatly preserve his well combed hair but not as much as he would have liked it to. That is why you got a chance to see how he managed to tame back his hairstyle.
Caught by Piyush Patel in his camera, you see in the next 4 photos how managed to keep up his precious “Image”.
Ever wondered how Narendra Modi always maintains the perfect look on & off stage? With scores of cameras watching his every move at the kick-off ceremony of his 3-day fast at GU convention centre on Saturday morning, DNA lensman Piyush Patel captured on camera a small comb that Modi deftly held in his left hand to tidy his hair after removing a turban.
Imagine how he can do the same “Make-over” and not get noticed if he has to wear the Muslim Skull-cap!
A sample cap on how it grips the top of the head is shown below.
For a person like Modi having “not much” on his head like in this picture,
but having to do a “make over” to present a lush growth – that comes with little betrayals like in this photo below, (look at the top of his head which did not obey him in his "Make over" efforts)
how can anyone blame him for refusing to wear the skull cap in front of the cameras?
With a skull cap on his head, Modi will be in a terrible “Image –loss”.
The secret that there is 'nothing' in his ‘head’ will be flashed across all the homes through the TV when he takes out the small but gripping skull cap.
Why should he risk it?
I think by now Modi would have conveyed his ‘dilemma’ to the Maulana.
Isn't it the turn of the Modi- baiters to cover their empty ‘heads' now?
