Do you often see matrimonial ads asking for FAIR girls/boys? I often come across people saying " My grandchild is fair, my son and daughter and fair, I will have no problem in finding a good match for my kids since they are fair and etc etc".
What surprises me is the importance given to the colour more than anything else. Sometime back, we called up our friend to congratulate him on the birth of his baby girl. The baby's father told us " She looks like me, but colour like mother"..Your baby is yours and will the love u shower on the baby depend on the colour?
I fail to understand why colour is given so much precedence. Does that mean good habits and good character are secondary to colour?? Or does it mean that all fair people are good by default and all others are bad by default? I have seen so many fair people who are just fair, that's all and so many others who are beautiful but not fair. So why assume that all fair people are beautiful?? Another doubt I have is that will the fair complexion help you in times of need by selling it off?? I remember a well-dressed and good looking girl in my college was named as " Miss South Africa" just because of her complexion. Its high time we stop judging people merely by their complexion and instead focus on being good human beings.
