Indians are most defenitely obsessed with fairness. Call it the way we have evolved or the desire to look 'western', this attitude has so intricately woven itself into our minds that we're unconsciously prejudiced. Eg - Imagine someone is seeing his/her relative after a long time, the relative has become slightly darker. He/She will be greeted with a 'Tum itne kaale kaise ho gaye ? Acche khaase gore the'.
 
We have 'Fair and Lovely' advertisements depicting a dark woman who is not being able to find a prospective groom because of her colour. She is introduced to 'Fair and lovely' cream and she becomes as fair as milk in seven days. It is potrayed as god's gift to mankind ( The darker mankind, to be precise )
 
But then, like someone said, these ads are simply a reflection of the society's collective attitude towards dark people. Some smart person deduced that this attitude could be used to make money and voila! We have the magical cream and it's advertisement.
 
Physical beauty is indeed, not defined by colour. Striking features can be posessed by anyone. Frankly, I find darker/dusky women to be more beautiful. Eg - Bipasha Basu, Rani Mukherjee etc.

But why should looks matter, a good personality can camouflage bad looks too. I dont agree that every Indian is that OBSESSED with fairness. Just that they believe that fair look much prettier Big smile .

 
Unfortunately, that doesn't happen. One always gets attracted to beautiful/handsome person at first sight. Ofcourse, that might change as the bond develops, but that's how it begins.
 
I don't say every Indian is obsessed, but that's pretty much the outlook of the society, overall.

And we are still beating this subject about black and blue.

I like people to be unfairly gorgeous.

Not all blondes ae pretty.  Lot of them are just average and most are bottle blondes and some are downright F U G L Y:
Ugly Blonde
 
 
 
 
Nivea, if put during daytime, tans you a lot.  Nani ma used to say use ubtan for gora-chitta rang instead of any soap out there. 
 
Doh cheezey suggest keen woh bhi bilkul faltoo.  Suggest something else, q
wertyLOL



Just suggest kiya.. ab ubtan lagao chahe... sandal sabun se muh dhona shuru karo..but being on the fairer side is extremely advantageous..now u must close to being a nani so nuske pakana shuru karo ......something needs to be passed over however useless it may be....LOL

seriously blondes rule.. they are veri beautiful.. and the persons who started the talk of internal beauty surely couldnt look into the mirror themselves...LOL

the sad part is the whole world is going shades of brown.cos of race mix.....damn it.. there should be  some movement like "save pure blondes" ...by keeping them secure from colored people.....
