Love comes in all shapes and shades. Since childhood we’ve been slapping our faces with layers of fairness cremes, blushing it, dabbing it with various ingredients just to get few tones fairer and come under the socially acceptable tone of fairness.
The advertisements have fed us a statement that fairness is equal to confidence while it has time and again constantly neglected the beauty of the brown. The judgemental aunty will sing glories praising the dark brown colour of the tea but will find it a derogatory shade for skin.
Once again our very own brown girl, Aranya Johar along with Unerase Poetry has come up with a strong poem with a rock hard powerful message to shake the judgemental grounds and break the stereotypes surrounding the skin tone.
