Hi, i want to share an incident with u. My neighbours has 2 daughters. The eldest is wheatish fair and a reserved girl and the younger is very fair. Their mom always tell others that her first one is very dark. She told this even to my mom. But actually this girl is not dark. so some how i felt why people give importance to colour than character. This girl got married to her dad's friend son. now starts the issue. This girl hardly ventured out and had a reserved life, but the younger one visits all places and is a jovial one. The eldest daughter's inlaws and their relatives had seen the younger one and knew her. when the proposal was placed they assumed that the girl is the youngest. many did not know that there is an elder one. so they told the groom that the girl is like sridevi and bla, bla... but when they saw the girl in "penn parkum padalam", they realised that the girl is different. though the marriage took place , the groom's relatives tell this girl that the younger one is good to look at and so on. so far this elder girl did not give much importance to all these, but when i meet her recently( she was my class mate and i knew her well) she sounded depressed and cried why every one treat her like this though she is fair; and asked does the colour of the skin matter? i was taken aback and could not answer her. this troubled me a lot so i am sharing it with you all. U guys tell me. why do people place so much value to the colour ?
