Re-defining beauty…

Tall, skinny, fair- People consider such women attractive because these are the ”so-called” attributes that a person according to the norms set by society needs to possess to call that person ”good looking”. I welcome compliments as much as I welcome criticisms. I am tall, skinny, fair and YES, I do hear criticisms. Girls like me are criticized for being too tall for a boy, for having no distinct curves, for the scars on our faces that becomes too prominent because we have a fair skin tone! Life of a tall, skinny, fair complexioned woman is as difficult as that of a short, plump and dark complexioned.

I believe that the physical attributes are not meant for measuring beauty. Their purpose, according to me is to differentiate people so we can identify them, because we can’t really know or remember the names of everyone. Can we?

We live in a society where the meaning of beauty is stereotyped. It is unfortunate that we are a part of such society; shameful that many a times we are a part of stereotyping too. Don’t we look at a model and get magnetized seeing her? Do we feel or react the same way when we see an ordinary girl? Ordinary here means someone who is not a model and is in some other profession and do not possess any of the attributes that a model must! Now what exactly must a model possess? Since I don’t own a modelling agency or is not a judge of any modelling pageant, I cannot really point out the exact criterion or the reasons behind. Today, when we are moving towards a modern world, I can slowly see the demand and progress of dark complexioned girls in the field. Actors too have stopped endorsing fairness creams. So now, a beautiful girl can be dark complexioned too! When will the society start accepting that a short and plump girl is equally beautiful? I say, all girls are beautiful as long as they have a compassionate heart, helping hand and a body full of confidence.

I am here, writing on such sensitive issue as this because I have come across a lot of girls facing inferiority and depression because of their physical structures. We are a product of our parents. We represent their genes. Let us not insult them and their love and allow anybody to bring us down and set the definition of beauty for us. But because charity begins at home, let us first learn to see the beauty in us and say goodbye to all the bad thoughts and feelings that resides in our mind, so that we can trash the ugliness that actually stays in our minds and thoughts and not on our face or body.

Also, I am not trying to stop anyone in their way to transition. We are all free to change our body types if only we want to, if only our body is ready to accept those changes and if only our mind allows us to. Transition is not acceptable if it is meant to please others .

Feel free to let me know what according to you is beauty!

I am specifically talking about girls because only girls get mood swings 😉 and ”beauty” to us is a very very sensitive matter.


All about my first post!

“Fascination makes us feel more alive”

Blogging seems to be the bandwagon of the 21st century and the idea has always fascinated me.  And today, when I have finally decided to start blogging, I believe I will start to feel more alive than the most alive because I am doing what I have always fascinated about. It is never too late to start doing what we have always wanted to do- may be because it makes us happy, may be because everyone seems to be doing it, or may be because we have been asked to do it. I am here for every reason I stated except for the latter one.

“Discovery consists of looking at the same thing as everyone else and thinking something different”. I am here to let my feelings expose on various matters that probably everyone has either expressed or is on the way of expressing. But no one can express it the way I feel individually because we all have our own views, beliefs and opinions. I am a quote person and I am bound to conclude here with the third quote in this article-“No one can be you and that is your power”

This is my first post in WordPress and for now, I would like to enjoy going through it in details because everything seems so quirky to me here.
