India’s obsession with “fair skin” cannot be ignored. From the matrimonial advertisements to daily fairness creams, this ingrained orthodox ideology is literally paraded under our nose, all thanks to the conformist society. The discrimination happens very subtly but it sure does.
In the ancient times before the Britishers set up their colonies in India, dark skin was considered to be beautiful and even desirable. Of course, given the fact that half the country are Dravidians who are intrinsically on the darker side, this bias in the present time is just so paradoxical. Thankfully, some Samaritans are doing everything to make #unfairandlovely covetable.
Here are these #bossladies embracing their beautiful self without giving a s**t, truly glorious, we say!
