Look, how that beard has grown!

In these lockdown times, we are all confined to our homes.

Many men, we know, avoid Zoom calls because they haven't had a hair cut or trimmed their beards in the four months they have been locked up at their residences.

And if you thought prime ministers have it easy, think again.

Narendra Damodardas Modi, our Pradhan Sevak, has only stirred out of 7, Lok Kalyan Marg twice since he locked down Bharat Varsh on March 23 -- once to survey the areas in Odisha and Bengal devastated by Cyclone Amphan on May 22 and then to Ladakh on July 3 to boost the morale of the troops at the LAC.

Clearly, Modi -- one of the most stylish leaders on the planet (remember that Modi monogrammed jacket he wore for the Obama visit in January 2015?) -- hasn't had his barber call at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg -- physical distancing and all that.

Don't believe us? Check the images below and you will know what we mean.
