Lock me up
If every, most, or even a good some of the men of the peace in India and Sri Lanka were really like these, who would mind a few nights or more behind bars?
These gentlemen possess those natural, unassuming good looks that come with youth and being of modest means.
simple, good looks >>
Despite the reputation of the police in so many places of being corrupt and abusive, one might wonder if the kind, gentle appearance of some are true indications of their character.
If you ask me, the carrot, whatever its complexion, is a more effective weapon than the stick. If I were to encounter such officers of the peace, I may be much more likely to cooperate and confess to my wrongdoings. Am I just being naive, or is there really something noble and trustworthy about these handsome faces?
The young officers here exemplify the working class men who have neither the money nor the time to spend on fine attire or fancy grooming, but look all the more handsome for just performing their humble duties, whether security men, laborers, peons (a term used non-pejoratively in Sri Lanka) and other workers.
If all policemen were like these...
But most, it seems, deteriorate with age, losing their boyish smiles and trim physiques.
Instead of a shy smile, one is more likely to encounter a scowl and a growl; and instead of the tender manner suggested in the faces of the men seen here one is more likely to encounter a brute.
More than the average police officer it is the ranks of the armed forces in Sri Lanka where you will find the largest crop of young attractive security men.
But if all policemen were as handsome as these, I fear the crime rate might just go up!
Fair Complexion, Alluring Eyes
I have seen this face before. Haven't you? It is the face of a young Indian or Sri Lankan lad. You can see it in his eyes.They are sharp and determined. They are the eyes of a young man who sees his own future.
See the young man's budding mustache (above), full lips and sexy goatee.
Yes, this is the face of a young south Asian male. I have seen him before on the streets of Trivandrum, Colombo and Sharjah.
Notice the sheen in his thick black hair.
This is part of the appeal of the south Asian male, which probably goes often unremarked on.
Many of them are blessed with the most beautiful texture of hair, with full-body and a healthy gloss. It is not only the female Fair & Lovely model who can boast of beautiful hair.
One of this blogs readers has commented on how he loves the black, full, lustrous hair of south Asian men. It gives a healthy, virile look. I know that Sri Lankans especially like hair that is jet black, nicely slicked with coconut oil.
So which one is the most handsome? No doubt the one in the middle. He is the center of attention here. But the one on the right is dark, handsome and just looks real. Good looks are a question of taste and by mine he's got them too. Meanwhile, the one on the left has the sweetest eyes. All three would make fine companions on a long bus trip!
Who is that random Sri Lankan male, that handsome extra?
We don't know his name, since he isn't the big star.
But It is the good-looking, unknown young extras like him who really ought to have the starring role.
Young Sri Lankan men and other south Asian men are just handsome like that. They may be college boys, working men or the many just trying to get a lucky break.
You may find their pics online, you may know them from travel or work, or you may just be one of these handsome south Asian men yourself.
How many handsome Sri Lankan and south Indian men do you know--yourself included?
Back to the officers... the Men With the Long Sticks
Indian police officers ↑
The stick might be a rifle or a baton, but whichever, the holder is likely to be a handsome young security man who would dare you to cross him.
