Yes I am Brown Skinned Girl!

From past few months, my parents are seeking a Mr. Right for me, recently I got to meet this person who is a dark chap, average in his looks, well educated and mannered etc etc. we shared our profiles and photographs. After this level of screening, we wait to hear from the person, and the same happened here too. After two days we got a call from the bureau saying that guy wanted a fair girl and you daughter is brown skinned. Grrrrrrrrrrr!! A dark chap calling me dark :) 

Many of us see shocking ads which show girls landing in to good jobs and succeeding in careers because they are fair skinned. Many of the Indian girls are indeed obsessed with the fair skin and run behind the fairness creams.

This is unfortunate in a country like us where we are all genetically brown skinned. In this run, many teenage girls has developed inferiority complex and are heavily buying these fairness creams in the hope of lightening their skin color,.

Be it the girl or the parents, having a fair skin means good job opportunities and better matrimonial proposal, which truly translates into bright future. I guess the saga of fair skin can be traced back to our Vedic ages.

But today I wonder we all are so educated and why  are we not understanding being fair has nothing to do with our social status in society and won’t stop us in succeeding in our careers

We are beautiful, beyond our skin color.

I believe that Passion, vision and clear ambition is a sexy trait for every woman. Whole world appreciate a successful women. 

So what do you think about this??

  1. The guy needs to know that skin color is not everythin... guy and his perception shld change... we had same with caste system but at one point that changed bcz of education but color discrimination will not bcz no1 talks abt it..

    Guess, until one realises tht color is not everything.. thts wen this ll turn upside down..

    And those ad fr fairness cream.. this s ll work only in India.. other countries they do knw this is impossible.. maybe lot of them here are dumb in believing

  3. When I was in US, we started a group called brown girls' network--to be proud of our skin color, to be proud of why we were the way we were. One of my friend's even started a production call Brown Girl. Glad to read this here! You are beautifully and sensually bronze...and you are perfect this way!

  4. To be honest, I think its good to have found about it earlier than later.

    Find it very weird when guys do that, think one's personality is more important than one's color.

    Someone I know who is also brown skinned is getting married to a fair guy, when the guy's parents were asked why marrying to brown skin when he can get a fair one. His parents replied that they don't judge people by color but with their nature/attitude.

    I think we need more of such parents to break this stereotype.

    You will find better, just keep your fingers crossed :)

  5. If the guy is blind to the lovely heart of a wonderful woman, and rejects her for the dark skin, It's better not to have him in life at all.
    For him, it's not values, love or even relationships but show off and the fabricated social cover that's important.

    1. :) ya, but you see, judging a person heart is mere far thing to look when you actually meet a person for the first time.. may be he has kept this criteria .. No worries :)

  6. I completely agree with you. A colour cannot determine what a person is capable of. I don't get it why people are obsessed with "Fair" when the natural color of people in India is brown. Does it matter? Not at all .
