Fair-skinned Indian, should be lucky

Kalpana,
Singapore

Indians come in different languages, shapes, sizes and colours. We can look so different from each other and still be brothers and sisters. Dark skinned Indians are looked down at even by their very own people. Somehow being fair skinned is look at highly and thus makes lives much easier as they are thought as upper caste. Colour of the skin decides the caste and the person’s purity. Very sadly, by the nation’s very own people. It just shows how naive people are and how consumed they are by whitism even in a land full of different colours.
