People who have watched the Charlie and the chocolate factory” starring Johnny Depp, are well aware of the fact that a single strand of white hair can be life threatening! Yes, you got me right! The grey devil that emerges from Charlie’s own head compelled him to arrange a competition among the kids. For short listing of the candidates, he inserted a handful of golden plates into thousands of chocolates that were sold among the people. Whoever found one under the wrapper was entitled to take part in the famous competition. His great empire and estate including the extravagantly famous Chocolate Factory needed an heir. The main idea of narrating this story was that the men have extreme amount of responsibilities on their strong shoulders that they have to bear no matter what circumstances they face.

He was quite content until he found his first white hair.
