Kohl is called Surma in Urdu. It is traditionally made by grinding a compound of Antimony and is quite popular among the ladies (older ones at least) as an eye makeup. As a kid I also used to apply surma to my eyes.

I love his face and the way he has groomed himself…well kept beard, hair with some gel applied and of course Surma. Well defined features too.
