The hanging girl...

Now, let’s look into some of the special rules for some special children. When I say special à its very specific. So pay attention: South India, Village Girl (not a boy, but a girl… guess my dad’s Y chromosome was smarter than the X!), so a Girl, Dark Skinned (more like golden brown in the sun, but no no no,,, in India its DARK period.) and from an untouchable caste (lets come back to this serious shit later). You have some news à NOT A GOOD COMBINATION! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NOT AT ALL! Hallelujah! Now for people like me there are different set of rules on top the above 5! Let me explain.

Rule #1: “When you are dark, you are not beautiful.” Huh??????????????

Rule #2: “Do everything to become white.” Apply Fair and Lovely or you know what just drink it from the day you were born… May be that will help transform your skin from dark to white! R.I.D.I.C.U.L.O.U.S.

Rule #3: “No more than handful of colors to wear” – black, brown, dark blue, few dark colors, may be sometime a beige (special request) and once in a lifetime White! What a fucking colorful life!

Rule #4: “Do not play in the sun or you will get dark!” Gosh! How much darker than I already am? Really? Are you kidding me?

Rule #5: “Make friends of your own religion.” WHAT???????????? What does it even mean when you are 3 or 5 or even 8 years old? I fucking did not understand until I was in my mid 20s how an untouchable gets treated in India! Pffffff!

This is reality and not Star Plus! More to follow....
