yes! I actually have something to say about this. I don’t like the extent to which fairness is promoted in India. Fair and lovely advertisements have been coming on since I was child, probably even before then.I can’t understand why every girl should be pale or why this whiteness is valued, when this is not us! To be brown is just as beautiful as it is to be white, and its no ones fault if they’re dark! Yet our media and our films and everything promote this “fairness” to an extent that its crazy.
