Men of Gold
It begins with a desire that becomes a passion,
...and passion burns like fire in the soul.
The passion is the fuel that maintains the dedication and discipline.
Who can resist the attraction of male physical perfection?
The Real Men of Chennai--Edition 11
They are men of gold and bronze--the bodybuilders of Tamil Nadu. Theirs is a precious commodity in the form of flesh and blood.
|The handsome physique of a fellow bodybuilder|
is more than enough to inspire.
It might be mistaken for a farm of men. The harvest is in and the produce are on display. It looks like a bumper crop. The men are well-built, greased and ready to exhibit what they worked so hard to cultivate.
I was not there--I'm never quite so lucky. But the images taken by Vinoth Kumar, happily give a taste of what must have been a feast for the eyes.
Three flavors to choose from: caramel, peach and dark chocolate.
I fancy the dark chocolate, with or without the toppings. ↓
A Window on Their World
The photos of Vinoth Kumar allow the non-bodybuilder and those of us not fortunate enough to inhabit India's southern zones to catch a glimpse of the spectacle.
Tamil men, whether in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia or elsewhere, have a unique combination of dark complexions and Asian features.
Combine this with the propensity of a many young Tamil men today to build up their physiques and and show them off, and we end up with great displays like those featured here.
They make up a rich lineage which draws on Hindu, Muslim and Christian traditions. The Tamils come from a land rich in agriculture, fisheries and an impressive architectural heritage. And today they are key players in the information revolution.
The men of Tamil Nadu have much to take pride in.
How may hours in a typical week does the young Tamil bodybuilder spend in training?
What is their meals regimen, and how much of their working wages do they spend on supplements?
Whatever the costs, it is definitely worth it when the results are such as these men have on display.
I am looking for a south Indian bodybuilder to feature and sponsor through Sri Lankan Male. If you have what any of these champions have then your profile is welcome. Don't hesitate to get in touch!
A Heart On
It's a bad pun, but the men here are something to excite the heart...
|Can one not help but feel something for these men of gold and bronze?|
|All are champions in the measure of hard work and discipline.|
