Nargis Fakhri for Anushree Reddy at LFW 2014


“Indians and most South Asians are known to go to ridiculous lengths to have a fairer skin tone. There are actors who say that the fairer you are, the more success you will get. The amount of pancake cream on your face is ridiculous. I don’t think it is required, by the way. If a cream can give you confidence, then you really have to check your whole confidence department in the first place. It’s just this thing that people in India are so fascinated by white skin. My friend, who’s a doctor, told me that she has parents come in with their three-year-old kids saying, ‘Do something - I want my baby to be fair.’ Medically, it’s wrong and culturally we’re sending out the wrong message.”- Freida Pinto

Anonymous: What does "bhai" mean? I googled it but I feel like I'm not grasping it's meaning, lol.


It’s a term used for a guy, it just means ‘darling’ or ‘sweetheart’ so like if you want to tell a guy you like him you could just add ‘bahi’ at the end to make it a little more special. Just say, “I love you, bahi.” Your relationship will take a huge turn and things will be great.

He called on parents to take responsibility for their sons’ actions, saying parents must teach their sons the difference between right and wrong.

"When we hear about these rapes our heads hang in shame," Mr Modi said.

"Young girls are always asked so many questions by their parents, like ‘where are you going?’. But do parents dare to ask their sons where they are going?" he asked.

Those who commit rape are also someone’s sons. It’s the responsibility of the parents to stop them before they take the wrong path,” he added.


Okay, say what you want about him, but this is a big deal. This is Prime Minister Modi’s first Independence Day address since being elected. And instead of using this time to talk about Pakistan, like every other Independence Day speech in the past, he stood up there and talked about INDIA’s need for improvement. And amongst his topics, he talked about rape.

And he didn’t describe it as “accidental” or “boys making mistakes”, and he didn’t state that women need to “dress more dignified”, all of which have been said by other Indian politicians. For once, we’re hearing someone put the blame on the rapist, and actually calling out parents to raise their sons properly. Like everyone else, I’m still hoping Modi isn’t another PM who is all talk.

Edit: Not a Modi supporter, by the way. I just appreciated seeing this at a time where India is getting recognized for it’s rape culture. At the end of the day, I just want to see India become a better place. 


whenever white cooks on tv say “asian” it really pisses me off. what part of asia is your recipe from? malaysia? bhutan? japan? cambodia? y’all know 16 different french sauces but can’t name what kind of chinese/indian food you’re making.
