I was in a general medical store,
waiting in the queue for my turn.
A lady ahead of me,
Asked the shopkeeper for the "Fair and Lovely" Cream.
A small cute girl, maybe she was her daughter
Immediately said, "Fair and Lovely" ,
And had a giggle.
This little angel must have recognized the cream because of the famous ads on TV. These ads are everywhere.
"Fair and Lovely"
It struck me.
Unknowingly, what values are we giving ourselves ?
Is "Fair = Lovely"?
This cream is basically racism in a tube.
Fair is not lovely,
Being fair to everyone? That's Lovely.
