Fair world?

Society is not very fair to dark skinned, especially in Indian society. Fair and lovely and other fairness cream ads promote this obsession to fair skin a lot. These have been my thoughts in the perspective of a young girl with dark complexion.


It hurts when people say,
    "you are dark, not attractive"
   " It's difficult to get a good alliance for you"

It hurts when,
    people ignore my educational qualifications and a good job
    and frown on my skin colour

It hurts when,
    ads show as if having a fair complexion is the only goal of every girl

It hurts no more,
    As I am matured now, to ignore those foolish people who see only colours and nothing else in an         individual.

Until next time,
