Twitteratti Disappointed With Abhinandan's New Look

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who has been honoured with the Vir Chakra, for his bravery early this year, has flown a joint sortie with Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa in MiG-21 fighter on Monday. During Pulwama attacks and his capture by Pakistan army in February, Abhinandan's signature gunslinger moustache became the most trending then.

The popularity for his handlebar moustache is massive and in fact, the youth of the nation followed his style religiously. The recent pictures and videos from Monday's flight of the MiG-21 showed the Wing Commander in a trimmed moustache. On this, netizens expressed their disappointment over their favourite moustache shaving off.

Twitter was poured with sorrow tweets and one user wrote, 'Happy to see him back but where is our favourite moustache?' Another user commented, 'His moustache is the pride of the nation, why did you change the style, sir?'. The news of Abhinandan's comeback to the cockpit in a newly trimmed look has definitely left many in dismay but the happiness over his joining back is still intact.

Nevertheless, on a serious note, Abhinandan is still our hero, be it with a moustache or without. His valour can never be forgotten. Now that he started flying six months after injuries, people of the country expressed their contentment and happiness over it.
