NIIT - -> Beard + Sharp nose = Top management ?

Two photos of NIIT's top management caught my attention recently and both of them appeared in Business Line newspaper. The first one appeared on May 6, 2010 when NIIT Tech's Q4 results were covered.  (Source: NIIT Tech Q4 profit rises 57% on lower taxes, high margin deals, Business Line, Thursday, May 06, 2010). See photo below:

All the top people have sharp nose & have grown beards!  Is it just a coincidence?
