Mooche ho toh Nathu­lal ji jaisi ho, warna na ho, who can for­get th­ese iconic lines from Sharaabi (1984)! Nathu­lalji would surely be proud to flaunt his mooch this month, what with Movem­ber mak­ing waves all over the world.

The month of no-shave Novem­ber has been trend­ing in a big way for over a decade, and young­sters in the Cap­i­tal are also in­spired. From thick wal­rus-style mooches and the clas­sic chevron to the ever pop­u­lar horse­shoe and han­dle­bar, there’s so mooch love for Novem­ber. The move­ment kicked off in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia, in 2003 and raises aware­ness about men-re­lated health is­sues.

Delhi-based up­com­ing model Sahil Rally re­cently shared a pic­ture on Face­book show­ing off his mooch. “I started fol­low­ing Movem­ber af­ter my friends spoke about it and I got to know what it was all about,” he says. De­signer Anand Bhushan is all for the trend. “The move­ment can ex­tend through­out the year. Noth­ing looks sex­ier than a beard.”

City-based mu­si­cian Ak­shay Jo­har thinks some are do­ing bath­room ac­tivism. “I think some Delhi men tend to think of it as a fash­ion move­ment. I don’t think many would know what it’s for. Hence it some­times comes across as gim­micky.”
