    A theory and a corollary

    Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalswamy

    Seeing this photo of Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalswamy, I was reminded of a theory that I came up with not too long ago.

    An iyengar's (or Vaishnavite's) forehead size dynamically [and dramatically] increases in height over a lifetime to accommodate an ever lengthening srichurnam/naamam.
    To the best of my knowledge, every single Iyengar male that I've seen with a naamam invariably has a forehead that nearly extends all the way towards the back of his head!

    Perhaps there's some natural selection at play. They automagically become bald to reconcile with the existence of the srichurnam.

    Conversely, perhaps an Iyer's (or indeed Shaivite's) forehead widens over a lifetime to accomodate the vibhuti, as as indicated by these two below.
