A new campaign known among the youth as "No Shave November"
had gradually become viral after it was started last month. It involves a
person giving up shaving or removing hair from their body for the whole of the
month. The main objective of this campaign is to create awareness among people
about men's health, prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health
In recent years, the month of November has been associated with charities that use facial hair to raise awareness for men's health. "Movember", as it is called among the people, started in Australia in 2003 and has grown into a global event. No shave November started in 2009 and encourages participants to grow hair and donate the money participants would normally spend on grooming for the month to any cancer charity.
There were many who joined this campaign, including women, who did not mind giving up shaving for a month.
Even the people in urban areas live in a state of denial. They need to be informed that the cancer can be cured. One just has to go to hospital for check-up when they feel abnormal," he says. The exhibition is an on going event and will go on till December 5.
