Thaz Just Not Fair!

During my childhood, there were two phrases that i came across very often, that baffled me....

1. "Tall Dark & Handsome".... generally the studs.... the hunk... fell into this category... to be marriage material, guys had to be the same!!!! Guys were supposed to be rugged... macho... he was supposed to be the head of the family... the decision maker... the family was supposed to revolve around him... & there was nothing that he could not be involved in... & the women were supposed to be ummmmm.... ummmmmmm.... ummmmm... well, they were supposed to be nothing but fair!!! & that's why the 2nd term that baffled me came into its existence...

2. "The Fairer Sex"... because of the mentioned reason... the fair "factor" went from being a sheer "feature" to the only "quality" that would help one "qualify" as a "beautiful woman!"... i am born to a fair mum & a dark father... as expected, i am dusky... & throughout my school & college life, i tried to battle this fact of life... i tried everything.... from basin... to haldi.. to honey.. to milk... to fair&lovely... to garnier lite... ponds white... to ah... i have lost count!!! I tell you... take it from me women.... NOTHING fregging WORKS & hence, i gave up on them, i think about 2 years ago!

I tried real hard to become fair... because fairness is a super criterion to beauty... i swear... i have seen men digging really dumb & ugly women... just because thy are fair & hence beautiful in their eyes... it took me some time to deal with th fact that i never can be fair... but there are some things that really helped me cope up with the same...
1. The metro sexual... guys who are fair... skin conscious... get waxed... get threaded... & im not even going there... but yea... if they can make an exception to the tall dark & handsome & be proud of it, i can make an exception & spare myself the torture as well!!!!
2. The fair face, the ugly base... women who are fair & hence up in the air... women who think that they can get away with anything they want... who run over people over & over again... i would rather be myself than be one of them!

yet, everyday i turn on the idiot box... & i see multiple ads... endorsed by multiple known & unknown faces... claiming that they can make u upto 2 tones lighter... try for yourself & all that crap!!!! & all that it does to me is PISS ME OFF royally!!!! cuz they are all just bloody liars... none of their claims are true... cuz i have tried it all... but i was, am & will remain... dusky!!!
