2439So it was 2003 and I was flying while I was in grad school. Id just started shaving my head, while wearing glasses, explains Chinmay in his audio clip.
I was in the security line at the airport and a guard looked at me and said this. Id just seen him at the Martin Luther King centre cos I was in Atlanta and I didnt think anything of it.
Literally 30 seconds later he was like Did you pack your own bag sir? Are you travelling alone? Where are you going?
I was like Wait, you just told me I look like Gandhi, now Im getting randomly searched?
I was clean shaven at the time, but decided if I was going to get randomly searched frequently, which I did, I dont want to look like Gandhi. So thats why I have a beard.
