Profile Pictures.

There are so many. Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, Windows Live, Gtalk, Linkedin....

ah or akh-thu?
..updating ones which only my friends would be viewing (facebook, Windows Live) doesn't require much thinking ... They range from whatever the pretty posey ones, from weddings and birthdays to the crazy random ones taken here and there .. I am not concious about those at all. I have had some down-right fugly ones.. 

....but when it comes to putting one up on a public platform like Linkedin or here its funny what a project and a half it can be. Its always one of the fake ones, with a toothy smile. I always wonder what a third person, who has never met me, never seen me thinks of it. When they see it, do they see "me". Do they think I am plastic or do they think I have kind eyes. Do they think I am cross-eyed...

So I am putting it out there, what do you see random-reader-darling?..  
I know how this can be a classic case of "Aa bail, mujhay maar" ... but nevermind.

Lol, this is the kind of pic that would attract a lot of 'will you frandship me' mails from random sleazoids.

very honestly my critical analysis would be..the smile doesnot seem natural,as the expressions of ur eyes and lips are not the same,,seems like a pic taken at some special occasion like eid,wedding,b'day etc.,where u had to pose at the camera and smile,even if u were not in the mood to do so:),,another thing,what did u do with ur hair??i know u can have any hairstyle u like,,but the curled hair suit u more :):)..since no one analysed the pic critically from a random viewer's point of view,,i thought of doing it and hope u don't mind,,other than that,,the pic is nice,ah and definitely not at all akh thu
