Beauty Beyond Colour
“Toltey kiyu ho mujhe rangad se
kia koyley k jism wale log hira nh ban saktey?”-Asna Azhar
Growing up, I’ve always had dark skin. I, personally, didn’t see anything wrong with it.
And to be quite honest, why should I have? I had great friends, there was nothing in life that could stop me!
As I got older I really began to start noticing the things people said about my dark complexion.
And then suggesting skin bleaching products or face masks for me to use.
I’m not at all concerned about my complexion.
We all should learn to accept ourselves & love ourselves the way we are & not try becoming or fitting to so called “Society’s Beauty Standards”
Yes!! I am a DUSKY WOMAN & I’m perfectly happy with the way I look! 😊
You are beautiful ! Being fair or dark has nothing to do with it.
But as Indians, mentality that “to be fair is to be pretty and to be dark is not”. Indian media, only further adds onto this fallacy along with advertisements that promote the usage of skin lightening creams and products.
Such advertising propagates discrimination among men, women and even children.
So to those kind of people I would like to say maybe your eyes are dull which can’t see such beauty.
Black or white,
Red or blue,
We are the same,
And that is true.
Face washes and soaps,
Make you think that You should glow.
Dark is not bad,
Dark is not unlucky,
Dark is not ugly.
Stand up and say it: “Dark is beautiful.”
So as a society stop putting people down for the things that make them unique. Whether it be the way their voice sounds, or the type of clothes they wear or how dark their skin is. We should learn to love people for all the things that make them who they are, Every human being is beautiful in his or her own right. We are no one to discriminate.
