Once upon a time a beautiful princess fell asleep for a hundred years on touching a spindle, pursuant to a wicked fairy’s curse. Her fairy godmother, who had blessed her with an enchantment that she shall be revived to life on arrival of her true love, put the entire castle to sleep and hid the castle behind a thickening trees. A hundred years later, a handsome young prince braved the dense forests to discover a beautiful castle. He then reached a room where a beautiful princess lay asleep on magnificent bed. Smitten by her immense beauty he walked towards her and then kneeling down he kissed the princess. As their lips touched, the princess was brought back to life from the clutches of slumber.
The princess opened her eyes to see a well built prince in front of her and then she shrieked in horror, “My true love can never be a man with a stubble, I hate that unclean stubble.” In the very same moment she collapsed back to sleep.
As this news reached the reawakened King and Queen, they were grief stricken. The prince burdened with guilt, cleaned off his stubble and kissed the princess again, however she never opened her eyes. The King forbade any individual in the kingdom to keep a stubble. Every girl was raised bearing in mind the horrifying tale of the somnolent stubble that failed a fairy’s magic and put the princess in such deep a sleep that she could never be rekindled again. Thus no woman ever fell in love with a man with an unclean stubble.
