First and foremost Thank you all for appreciating my little effort 🙂 All the compliments really mean a lot for an amateur like me.
This time I thought to highlight that aspect of we Indians which is not only irritating and annoying but discriminating too. “Skin Color Discrimination” or should I say “The Cheap Indian Mentality” which judges people on their skin color.
In India people have this so-called obsession for “White Skin”.The first thing which people mark on seeing a person is their skin color,whether the person is fair or not.Even little girls and their mothers are not spared from it. Whenever little baby girls are born their mother rub their skin to see whether their daughter is “Blessed” with fair skin or not.And if not then the relatives are always ready to taunt the poor lady to give birth to a child who is not fair.Even the matrimonial columns which appear in newspapers make sure to write “Looking for a fair bride” which is so damn annoying.
In our country a lady’s beauty is judged not by her looks but by her skin color. If the lady is Beautiful but not fair,she is always made to feel inferior.The phrase “Black is Beauty” has lost it’s meaning to “Fair and Lovely”. Taking advantage of this,there are many companies who have started making creams which promise to make our fair skin within a short span of time.And instead of protesting against it,people are going gaga over it and buying that stuff thus these companies end up making huge profits.
People are made fool by all these advertisements but little do they know that the Bollywood Beauties who promote these advertisements are not that fair.It’s the work of computer which lightens their skin color.That is why in many foreign companies,these kind of cream adverts have been banned.
I can surely recall the event when two black cheerleaders were ordered off the grounds at Mohali during an IPL match.The most funny thing is, that now we not only have fairnes creams for women but also for men and people are falling for it.This shows that how “Modern” & “Developed” our country is.
