'Meyeta shundor kintu kaalo.'
I see many advertisements promoting products that claim to make your skin two to three shades lighter and I wonder why is it even important to change someone's skin tone. Fair skin is beautiful and so are tan and dark. If you are the shemla(tan) girl of the family, then maybe you faced this situation where some aunty comes and advices you to try that new whitening product out because darling it will turn your nights into days, bright and sunny woohoo. I don't understand why pretty people aren't considered pretty because they are dark. I don't understand why people say 'meyeta shundor KINTU KAALO' as if that's something bad or something you are not supposed to be. There is nothing wrong in being a woman of colour. We don't get to decide which skin tone should be considered appropriate and pretty. We don't have the right to break someone's confidence and make them feel insecure about their looks. Let's not use 'kintu' while calling someone 'kaalo'. Let's say 'the girl is dark AND beautiful' instead of 'the girl is beautiful but dark.' And please, never be that aunty who acts to be extra caring and worried about your looks.
Own your skin tone and flaunt it. Society's beauty standards don't matter. Meyeta forsha/shemla/kaalo ebong shundor. So always remember, I am beautiful, you are beautiful, WE ARE BEAUTIFUL. ❤
