We live in a country that looks down upon people on the basis of their skin colour. Growing up as a dark-skinned girl in India, there are always people saying things like “That dark-skinned girl looks pretty much average despite her skin colour.” There have hardly ever been any dark-skinned woman on the pages of a glamour magazine or the like.
From pretty, white-skinned actresses endorsing ‘Fair and Lovely’ to Bollywood item songs sensationalizing ‘Chittiyan Kalayiaan’ – likely, all our Miss Indias and Miss Worlds have strictly followed the ‘pretty white skin’ conduct.
That is exactly why today, this is a moment of pride for all of us out here, to see how far we have actually come along. Young, beautiful girls can now look up to and admire the absolutely stunning and amazing Anukreethy Vas, who has been crowned Miss India 2018.
This drop-dead gorgeous student from Tamil Nadu has was declared the winner in the 55th Femina Miss India World 2018, which was held at Dome, NSCI SVP Stadium in Mumbai.
It was hosted by Karan Johar and Ayushmann Khurrana.
Meenakshi Chaudhary from Haryana, who is just 21, and Andhra Pradesh’s Shreya Rao Kamavarapu who is 23 were declared as the first and second runner-ups in the annual beauty pageant.
