5 Things Dusky Women Are Tired Of Hearing

Let’s face it in a country that is predominately patriarchal by nature, being a woman is as it is a tough job. And to add to this is the fact that we as a nation have always been so obsessed with fair skin that being a dusky woman is tough task in India.

Thanks to this obsession, most of us have grown up watching Fair and Lovely ads and the rest have contributed whole hearted ly to the booming 2000 crore industry of skin-whitening products. None the less, here are a few annoying things that Indians seriously need to stop saying to dusky women.

1. Use a fairness creams

So anyone who is remotely dusky will definitely have heard of this one. As much as we like to argue about intellectual capabilities and talents what people tend to focus on are just your looks. And if you happen to be dusky then, god help you! And in this case god is a fairness creams. As using them “magically” will alter your complexion.

2. Cover your face before you go out!

Yes because the sun is focusing all his energies only on me! Well most of the time seriously wish to counter this dialogue with “Why should I cover my face when I go out? Perhaps, you should think about covering your mouth, like forever.”
3. Only fair and beautiful brides are wanted

One of my distant aunties shot out at me and said “rang aisa hi raha toh shaadi kaun karega tumse?” yes because being fair is the only criteria to know my worth? And in case you happen to think like this, then I have already rejected you in my mind for being a dumb retard.

4. We don’t have that in your shade

Yes because you judging me is all that I need. And if you don’t know dusky people are way more attractive than fair one. I have two words for you, Deepika Padukone. So stop being a JUDGMENTAL RACIST. And just so you know, I exactly know what looks good on me.

5. Why don’t you try this…

I have personally heard this line from so many relatives that I have lost track of it. From besan to rose water, the suggestions are been endless and consistent. All I want to say to them is to thank you them for the concern and ‘free’ advice, but I personally don’t need to match their idea of beauty!!
